We are proud to distribute Dutch brand, Timeless Classics, to our UK customers.
Timeless Classics produces impeccably crafted sterling silver pieces that stand the test of time. Featuring both elegantly simple pieces and intricate statement items from authentic period designs, they are ideal for those with a love of vintage style and design history.
As its name suggests, Timeless Classics is steeped in heritage. When brand owner GL Nederland took over the silver factory of Royal Van Kempen & Begeer in 1984, they discovered an incredible treasure trove of over 30,000 original, well-preserved master jewellery moulds, all hand-crafted by the great designers of the late Victorian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras.
Timeless Classics is proud to use this incredible discovery to bring the designs of the past to the present day, creating instantly recognisable jewellery. While these moulds were once used to make hand-crafted pieces for the aristocrats and royal families of Europe, they now allow anyone to wear a piece of design history.
The 5,000-strong collection, which is still manufactured in Holland, is categorised by period – Late Victorian, Art Nouveau or Art Deco – and features rings, pendants, brooches, bracelets, bangles, necklaces and earrings.
Late Victorian-inspired pieces feature Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and black inlay, while Art Deco items follow the stylings of French jewellery designer George Fouquet, who was instrumental in shaping the look of the period. Elsewhere, many of the Art Nouveau jewels showcase long-established intricate techniques, such as champlevé or plique-à-jour enamelling, to create a stunning translucent effect. Whatever the period, each piece of jewellery is a work of art that keeps the Dutch tradition alive.
