This was an age of elaborate and ornate unrestrained design.
In this period large drop earrings were fashionable along with seed pearls and multi-tiered necklaces.
My working life has been devoted to antique jewellery & gemstones after beginning this journey as a 16-year old on work experience at Chilton’s Antiques; the shop that I’d later go onto to own. After running this business for the past 20-years with customers I adore and staff I love like family, I am proud to present the next chapter; eCommerce.
All of our unique pieces are hand-selected for their price, aesthetics and quality. Being one of the few antique jewellery dealers that are also Gemmologists, Diamond Technicians and Registered Valuers really set us apart from our competitors. I studied various gemology courses for six years to become a leading industry expert.
One of my greatest passions is jewellery design. I love helping clients design bespoke pieces and watching them take shape in our workshop. I’ve been able to continue that feeling with the “By Liz” range of antique-inspired designs we also sell in-store and now online.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us online and browse through our amazing collection. Bringing these pieces together for you takes many months of sourcing from around the world. I always endeavor to go that extra mile to find that special piece for everyone and we make sure we cover every price point! I feel that beautiful things should be affordable for everyone and we keep our prices reasonable.
We invite you to come into our showroom in Miranda, NSW to see the pieces in person, as well as see our entire antique collection. We promise you will not be disappointed.
At Chilton’s Antiques, we cater to every style, design and price point.
At Chilton’s Antiques, we also offer a custom bespoke jewellery design and redesign of your old jewellery and we offer a wide range of jewellery repairs.

Engagement rings have existed since the third millennium BC in almost all cultures. They were made from all types of material from gold to wire. Some were simple; others were set with jewels of all descriptions. Rings were chosen to commemorate a variety of occasions, including friendship, love, or sorrow.
To complete a project as big as this, we knew from the start we’d need to assemble a team of really creative people. It’s been a huge effort from everyone involved, and I think the result is amazing! Welcome to Chilton’s Antiques, online!
