About us

Welcome to The Vintage Earring Company

We specialize in using beautiful antique and vintage beads and components to make earrings that match the style and design of antique and vintage necklaces, 1900s–1950s, but particularly the Art Deco period. You can either buy the ready made stock on our website or we can provide a bespoke necklace matching service if you cannot see what you need.

Our earrings

The earrings are securely assembled using new nickel and lead free brass pins. The ear wires / studs are made of brass (either bronze, silver or gold coloured) or surgical steel. We can supply sterling silver or gold filled ear wires for a small additional charge if preferred and can also provide new clip on / screw attachments.

As we only use vintage materials for our jewellery, they will have had a previous life and there may be some small signs of wear. We only use beads that are in very good condition and always mention any flaws.

We also sell original vintage earrings as well as original vintage necklaces.

Our story

Since the 1980's, we have spent our time hunting for lovely necklaces at antique fairs and markets and soon found that we had no earrings to compliment them. Three years ago, we decided to look for broken and damaged similar but original vintage necklaces to make into earrings for ourselves.

After many positive comments, this lead to the thought that other vintage and antique necklace lovers may have the same trouble finding matching earrings and so began a tentative try selling our vintage earrings on Ebay. We opened our Ebay shop, The Vintage Earring Co in 2015 and, as there has been quite a demand, we expanded our horizons to found our own unique online vintage earring emporium.

So here we are!
