About Us

Our Story

Wharfedale Antiques was created out of a passion for genuine, unique, high quality antique jewellery. Based in the North of England, we are a family run business with over 40 years experience in the antique trade. We travel throughout the continent to source and search for rarity in fine quality antique jewellery.

Our Shop 

We were once an online-only antique and vintage jeweller, and now we have expanded our business by opening an in-store shop, Nicholson Jewellers in Ilkley. In addition to our collection of antique and second-hand jewelry, we now offer a range of new and bespoke pieces. This expansion allows our customers to have a physical shopping experience while still enjoying the unique selection of antique and vintage jewellery along with newly crafted designs. Come see us in store, or get in touch by email for any enquiries.

Specialists in Jewellery from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, we have grown a collection of handpicked, quality items that we feel deserve to be shared with you.
