Antique, Vintage and Estate Jewellery | South Africa - Paisley’s

Paisley’s specialises in antique, vintage and estate jewellery.

It started in 1985 as a small attic shop in Vermeulen Street, Pretoria, moved to the Arcadia Centre, a few years later to Hatfield Plaza and eventually to Brooklyn Mall, where it remained for 8 years.

Over the past 30 years the owner, Heleen Bossi, has built up one of the largest collections of antique and vintage jewellery in the country. She relocated to Stellenbosch during 2005. After 6 years of commuting she decided to close the Brooklyn Mall shop at the end of February 2011 and now continues to operate the business from her base in Stellenbosch.
