In a world where the elite auctioneers have laid claim to everything that is beautiful and rarified we are seeking to create a transparent, accessible and fair way to trade fine jewellery, antiques and unique engagement rings.
Established in 1964 in Tipperary Town, Courtville has now been in business for over 50 years and we plan to continue this. We specialise in art deco, vintage, estate and antique jewellery, and in particular diamond engagement rings.
We continue this focus on antique, estate and vintage jewellery and will also add a speciality in cushion cut, old mine cut, old European cut and vintage diamonds.
Fast fashion, fast food, fast diamonds. The world is full of diamond manufacturers producing modern round stones to meet the demand for these gems. Our vintage diamonds are in limited supply. You cannot make any more. Period. What is out there are the only ones! We don’t believe in joining the masses and getting a modern mass produced ring, or one that can be 3D CAD’ed again, again and again. We believe in being different.
Your engagement ring, jewellery and diamonds should be as unique as the person wearing them. It should also be bought in a sustainable way. As such we focus on providing a range of unusual, quality vintage and pre-loved diamonds. These diamonds are all individual, and much more beautiful than a modern round stone, not to mention much better value. They are certified just like modern round stones and the quality of them is held to the same standards.
We do also stock modern round brilliant diamonds (you should note that modern round diamonds were cut from about 1919 onwards – so plenty of art deco rings contain these gems) but focus on them in vintage settings.
On a final note when it comes to bang for your buck, you won't go wrong going vintage with Courtville. It is nice to get a deal, for real!

Art Deco style diamond ring. The center stone is set in a double square platinum surround, the rest of the round brilliant diamonds are set in an oblong design which graduate down giving a lovely contrast of style to this pretty ring. It's nearly Valentine's Day... #artdecorings #artdecostyle #diamondring #diamonds #diamondsareforever #diamondsareagirlsbestfriend #loverings #valentinesday #ido #engaged #longlivethesmallshop #courtville #powerscourttownhouse #antiquesgallery
An example of Victoriana jewellery at its finest. Wonderful 18kt gold locket with turquoise, seed pearls & diamonds. Lockets where mainly worn for sentimental purposes and would contain portraits or locks of hair belonging to their loved ones. Wouldn't it be lovely to own a piece of history like this. #ilovegold #iloveantiques #victorian #victorianjewelry #lockets #goldlockets #gold #antiquegold #longlivethesmallshop #courtville #powerscourttownhouse #antiquesgallery
