Vintage Engagement Rings | Antique Jewellery & Rings

Established in 1964 in Tipperary Town, Courtville has now been in business for over 50 years and we plan to continue this. Courtville always specialised in art deco, vintage, estate and antique jewellery, and in particular diamond engagement rings.

We will 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.

Why do we specialise in these diamonds?

The world is full of diamond manufacturers producing modern round stones to meet the demand for these gems. These 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.



There are so many nice features to this aquamarine ring. 1- The oval shape is so comfortable to wear and gives great impact but because it sits flat it is suitable for everyday. 2- the pale aquamarine with the gold bezel gives a striking contrast. 3- the double row of diamonds gives a little sparkle. 4- the gallery is super intricate and detailed 5- just look at it !! #aquamarine #vintage #longlivethesmallshop #courtville #matthewweldon #jewellery #jewel #jewelry #love #blue
