About Retro Jewellery

Beginning during the Second World War, the Retro period lasted until the swinging sixties, and is characterised by bold sculptural pieces gleaming in highly polished yellow and rose gold. Closely associated with the technicolour glamour of the golden age of Hollywood, Retro pieces glow in warmer gold tones, which were favoured during this time, as platinum had been reserved for wartime use.

As a sixth generation family jeweller, Pragnell are proud to continue our tradition of offering a carefully curated selection of interesting and unusual pieces of vintage retro jewellery from this exciting period.

Reviewing our extensive selection of Retro pieces, you will be mesmerised by their sculptural appeal, which perfectly relates to the current fashion for bold gold style. Flattering statement necklaces, pendants, rings, bracelets and earrings are displayed side by side to delight the eye. These pieces look fantastic worn all year round from day to night, and feature accent sparkling diamonds and vibrant precious and semi-precious gemstones.

You will always find an interesting selection of vintage Retro pieces at Pragnell, which represent the very best designs from the most famous names.
