Hi there and welcome to my website. I’m Sally and these are my two girls Izzy & Jess.
Central Vintage Jewellery
At Central Vintage Jewellery we specialise in antique & vintage Diamond and Gem Set Rings. All our items are carefully individually chosen for condition, quality and value for money. We only buy pieces in very good to excellent condition that we would be happy to own ourselves.
It can be a little daunting buying online so our aim is to give you the kind of information and service you would receive if you came to buy from us at a shop or antique show.
We welcome any questions, so if you would like an extra photo or need a bit more information about an item on our website then please feel free to ask.
Free worldwide shipping is offered across all our pieces and discounts for multiple purchases are available.
Central Vintage Jewellery is part of Central Collectables, which has over 20 years experience in buying and selling antique ceramics and vintage jewellery.
What started out initially as a hobby to fund an ever increasing collection, the business was formed and moved very quickly selling online to customers all across the world. The website has grown at a rapid pace to take into account the ever changing needs of the market and is managed and updated by Sally Oakley. You can find us across social media on Twitter and Facebook, and we also have stores on eBay and Etsy.
Sally is extremely passionate about Art Deco and period style Jewellery and is extending her knowledge further by studying at the prestigious Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and is an associate member of the GEM-A.
Sally obtained her GIA AJP Accreditation in May 2016 and since then has been working towards the prestigious GIA Graduate Gemologist Certificate. She completed the GIA Coloured Stones Qualification in June 2017.
Sally is fascinated by Diamonds and Gemstones, attends local auctions and antiques fairs as well as gem trade shows. She is continually looking to extend her knowledge further and is an avid reader of gem publications.

Sally has two beautiful girls, Izzy and Jess and behind the scenes husband Marcus who is always keen to assist where he can. Eldest daughter Izzy can usually be found modelling some of the pretty rings you will see across the website! You may even find her hand popping up on some of the images!
Sally cleans and polishes all items before they are released for sale and has established firm relationships with local gem dealers / gem setters should there be a specific requirement.
