Finding that Special Present for that Special Lady

It is always hard to decide on the right gift for the special Ladies in your life.  Jewellery is a  popular choice, in Top Banana we have a huge selection, both on our web site and here in the Mall.  

Antique or vintage pieces are always a good buy, and if you have a close look the workmanship and intricacy are exquisite.

Our pieces range from gold and diamond rings from the 1930's, Edwardian sprays of flowers or cut steel brooches with a sweethearts initials or name, to a selection of 20th century Lea Stein Brooches in brightly coloured plastics, now highly collected and sought after

.

Some of the most unusual items are the re-use of coins with pins attached, often from the 19th century such as an American silver dollar coin from the 1880's.  We have had Crown coins from the Regency period, where the St. George & Dragon on the reverse had been beautifully enamelled or even fret cut, also a row of three silver threepenny pieces of Queen Victoria's time made into a tie pin.

There seems to have been a revival of the old charm bracelets amongst younger ladies in recent times, our selection of complete bracelets or single charms is very popular, and can be quite absorbing sifting through the hundreds of designs availiable  

Whichever style or period suits we have thousands of pieces here for you to choose from.
