Thomas Glover Antique & Vintage Jewellery Shop in The UK
Having specialised in antique jewellery for over 35 years, we believe we have the experience required for buying and selling authentic examples dating from the 1700s to the middle of the twentieth century. Our jewels are chosen for their great design and period charm, and above all for their quality and wearability.
Our beautiful little Georgian jewellers shop is located in the heart of Shrewsbury. We always have a wonderfully varied range of jewellery, watches & objects for sale.
5 St Mary's Street
Our shop is open:
Tues - Sat 10.15 - 4.15pm
We take in jewellery repairs & pearl restringing jobs and have a fully equipped specialist workshop. We can work on bespoke jobs and remodelling items of jewellery that no longer get worn.
If you cannot get to us but would still like to shop we can provide details by email, phone or video call. Postage is free of charge with a 14 day returns policy.
We have carried out a detailed risk assessment to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. We restrict the number of people in the shop at any one time as the shop is so tiny. If you have any concerns prior to visiting us, please do get in touch and we will help to put your mind at ease. We assure you of our best service at all times.
We are also available by appointment for both insurance and probate valuations. Between us, we have many years of experience working with antique and period jewellery and bring an in-depth knowledge that we are happy to share with you.

If you are searching for a specific piece of jewellery, get in touch as we have access to a wide network of jewellers gained during our many years in the business. We are always happy to search for your perfect piece or advise you if it is something that would be better to be made bespoke for you.
We can source all kinds of jewellery both old and new and will always advise on the best option to fit a specific budget. Let us know what you are looking for and we will see if we can find it - we like a challenge!
Sourcing engagement rings is a speciality and something we love being involved in. We work with each couple (or prospective Groom) to find the perfect ring just for you. We offer complimentary resizing and can make sure your engagement ring is cleaned and polished if required before your big day - we also advise and work with couples for their wedding rings.
JEWELLERY REPAIRS & PEARL RESTRINGING
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of how jewellery has been made and have always specialised in restoration of antique items. Andrew is a fully trained goldsmith which gives us an in-depth understanding as to what can and cannot be done when dealing with repairs and restoration. We always assess each job on its individual merits from the most basic repair to complex restorations and we work with a small network of highly skilled and trusted goldsmiths to ensure sure your piece goes to the right place for the job.
Whether you need jewellery cleaning, ring sizing, stone replacement, pearl restringing, watch repair, or a full restoration service, we can work with you to restore your jewellery so it can be enjoyed for years to come.
We are available by appointment for insurance and probate valuations. We are always happy to advise you with regard to selling your unwanted items and pride ourselves on our professional and personal service. Between us, we have many years of experience working with antique and period jewellery and are happy to share it with you.
We have worked with our customers for many years remodelling items of jewellery that no longer get worn and turning them into something for the next generation. This can be as simple as converting a brooch into a pendant or ring or something altogether more complex. We can make bespoke wedding rings and signet rings and work with the best goldsmiths to ensure a perfect result.
If you have a piece of jewellery that no longer gets worn and would like to convert it into something bespoke we always advise making an appointment with us to discuss the options. We have access through our extensive network, gained over 40 years, to specialise in every field of jewellery manufacture and supply.
