Welcome to Kit Clayton Jewellery! This little corner of the web is the culmination of my passion for gemstones and historical jewellery.
My name is Abigail, and I started working in the jewellery industry in 2014. What started as a job quickly turned into an obsession with gemstones and old jewellery, and I have since completed The Gemmological Association of Great Britain's Foundation Gemmology Course, their highly respected Diamond Diploma, and I will next be tackling their Gemmology Diploma.
Kit Clayton is a family affair: the business itself is named after my grandmother and is run by myself with the assistance of several family members. I travel the UK, Europe and sometimes further to source the beautiful pieces we sell, and carefully examine and describe each item before sale.
The main focus at Kit Clayton is antique and vintage jewellery, but I do occasionally source pre-owned modern pieces of jewellery if they are particularly lovely. Where the piece is modern, the description will make that very clear so you can always be sure of what you are buying when shopping with us.
We run the business between two locations in Hatton Garden in London and Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. Kit Clayton does not have a premises you can visit, but we do offer no-quibble free returns within 14 days should you change your mind about your purchase. We are a member of the National Association of Jewellers, so you can purchase from us with absolute confidence.
Buying pre-owned or antique jewellery is an ethical consumer choice, and i've tried to reflect that in Kit Clayton's packaging by sourcing as many elements from recycled and recyclable goods as possible.
Please consider giving Kit Clayton a follow on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook - I love to connect with customers on social media. And please always feel free to email with any questions about our jewellery: email@example.com or call during office hours on 0207 846 0254. Visit our sell your antique jewellery page if you're looking to part with any of your pieces - I would love to look at them!
