About us


Melissa Holt
“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 it’s 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 set up Holts Jewellery in 2013 with the help of her creative mind and love of all things vintage. After growing up in Hertfordshire, England, Melissa moved to Devon on the South West coast and it's here that her jewellery career began whilst working in a 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.
Offering a fresh take on jewellery retail, Melissa predominantly trades online through her website, making antique pieces available to customers all over the world. Social media has also been a huge success with a growing Instagram and Facebook following and it's here that new arrivals and the latest news are shared first.
