“I have always loved the history and charm of antique jewellery, each piece is totally unique and I am always searching for the right pieces that will fit perfectly in our shop and online store. Researching each piece to find out where it was made is something that I love to do, I always find it fascinating to delve into its history and imagine where it might have been worn and who might have owned it. Finding each piece a new home and a new love story to carry on its journey is a very privileged opportunity to have, I especially love helping couples to find the perfect engagement and wedding rings”
Melissa Holt established Holts Jewellery in 2013 with the help of her creative mind and love of all things vintage. Melissa's jewellery career started at the age of 18 when she began working in her grandfathers traditional jewellery shop. Melissa quickly developed an ability to spot the unique and exquisite and with time, she absorbed knowledge and experience and decided to set up her own business in Holts Jewellery.
Wanting to offer a fresh take on jewellery retail and a new concept in the way customers purchase those special pieces, Melissa set up the Holts Jewellery showroom in Bath, Somerset. She has created a relaxing and inviting space to welcome customers for a private appointment to view engagement rings, wedding rings and discuss bespoke commissions. All whilst enjoying a coffee or glass of champagne.
Melissa hand selects every piece of jewellery, using her knowledge and experience which spans over a decade. She is able to spot the unique and quality pieces that Holts Jewellery has become renowned for, as well as choosing pieces in line with her own style and that reflect the Holts brand.
"Every piece of jewellery I choose I would happily wear myself, in fact I often have to stop myself from keeping pieces!"
Establishing Holts Jewellery's online presence through her website, Melissa brings vintage and antique jewellery into the modern day and makes antique pieces available to customers all over the world. Holts Jewellery can also be found on Instagram and Facebook, it's here that new arrivals and the latest news are shared first.
Melissa has also holds the DGA Diamond Grading Diploma qualification with The Gemmological Association of Great Britain.
