Just a stone's throw from the place Vendôme, Miller has been welcoming customers from all walks of life for almost 30 years. They come to our shop in search of original jewellery, vintage jewellery, collector's items including rare items, and even contemporary signature pieces that originated just round the corner in the great jewellery houses of the place Vendôme.
We specialise in the purchase and resale of pre-owned jewellery, offering our customers valuable advice and impeccable service as standard. Our pre-owned jewellery and watches are sent to our watchmaker or workshop where they are checked over and receive all the tender loving care they need.
We are delighted to introduce you to our range of vintage jewellery from the Art Déco period of the 1920s and 30s up to the present day, all of which is in mint condition. Can we tempt you with a Mauboussin platinum and diamond brooch from the 1930s, a 'tank' ring or bracelet from the 1940s or a Piaget watch from the 1970s in jadeite or lapis lazuli? Or what about a 1990s Cartier necklace or bracelet from the 'Panther' or 'Draperie' collections? Or maybe modern jewellery is more your style, like a piece from Boucheron's 'Serpents Bohème' collection, Chaumet's 'Liens' collection or Cartier's 'Love' collection... We focus our attention on varying the periods and collections on offer so that you have a wide range of old and modern jewellery to choose from, whatever your tastes and budget.
The pre-owned jewellery market offers several considerable advantages. By choosing to buy pre-owned jewellery, you are giving a new lease of life to beautifully crafted pieces made from precious metals and set with quality stones. You might not realise it, but when you buy a vintage piece of jewellery, you are investing in a very valuable item whose price, according to trends and fashions, can increase exponentially. 'Alhambra' creations by Van Cleef & Arpels, especially the original designs from the 1970s in coral and turquoise, illustrate this point perfectly. VCA's timeless four-leaf-clover motif has always survived the world's crises unscathed. Exhibitions by these great houses are one of the determining factors in a piece of jewellery's value and value-added: Van Cleef & Arpels' 'Noah's Ark' exhibition in 2016 did much to revive the passion for animal brooches.
Setting aside the question of trends, the second-hand market in vintage and modern jewellery gives us the advantage of showcasing creations by jewellers which just can't be found on the new goods market. Where else could you pick up a Boivin ring, a pair of Jean Vendôme earrings or a Belperron bracelet other than through this market?
Through this system of buying and reselling your old jewellery, we like to think we're passing on a story, a little bit of history. So much more than precious metals and beautiful stones, we also value the workmanship, the moment in time, the labour of love.
