Held in the heart of London, the Art & Antiques Fair Olympia is the largest of its kind in the UK, attracting 160 of the world’s finest specialist dealers and close to 30,000 visitors. Now in its 45th year, you will find an eclectic mix of vetted pieces from antiquity to the present day with prices ranging from £100 to £1 million. From a pair of boots belonging to Lord Roberts, worn during the Anglo-Boer War, to a fun yellow resin pineapple brooch by Isabel Canovas, the sky’s the limit at Olympia for collectors.

Naturally, The Jewellery Editor will be making a beeline towards the jewellery and watch exhibitors, where antique, vintage and contemporary pieces are waiting to be discovered.

Georg Jensen’s silver jewellery is well represented by Grasilver, a specialist in rare vintage Scandinavian modernist jewellery. If you’re looking for the big names in jewellery like Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Tiffany and Buccellati, head to Anthea A.G. Antiques Ltd.

A good selection of pieces by Oscar Heyman will be showcased at Wimpole Antiques to tie in with a book published earlier this year. For collectors of Art Deco & Art Nouveau jewellery, The Peartree Collection Ltd. is a specialist in the field and has rare pieces by Archibald Knox for Liberty. Meanwhile, hunters of vintage watches from high-end manufacturers like Rolex, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin will find plenty of goodies at Timewise.
