Here at Lucas Rarities, we believe that jewellery collecting should be an intimate experience that retains traditional values. Our Mayfair location aligns the company with an age where jewellery was sold from discreet salons without a shop front, where a tailored and personal service is provided. We are proud of our growing reputation for delivering highly collectable items of exceptional design provenance.
In addition to our existing collection, Lucas Rarities are proud to offer the following services:
Consultations: As a renowned period jewellery specialist, Lucas Rarities are able to help clients looking for particular items.
Commissions: With access to the best workshops in London, our large range of outstanding diamonds, precious gemstones and natural pearls is available for clients wishing to commission individual pieces.
Acquisitions: Lucas Rarities are always looking for exceptional pieces to add to our collection. If you are looking to sell a piece of jewellery, or simply to find out more about it, we would be delighted to arrange an appointment.
