Dexy and Ness is a female owned small business based in Sydney Australia.  Dexy and Ness is run by Vanessa and I am an avid collector of antique and vintage jewellery. I started collecting and selling Antique and Vintage jewellery in 2017 and it turned into a serious passion, I love finding new jewels that I can rehome.

In 2020 I decided to make this my full time job and I have never been happier. I have completed the GAA (Gemmalogical Association of Australia) Introduction to Gemmology (Retail) course and am currently enrolled in jewellery making courses.

I aim to source beautiful antique and vintage jewels that I personally love at great price points which I  hope you love too.

Take a look at our reviews from happy customers below and on Google Reviews.


Vintage jewelry is timeless and beautiful. We live in fast paced and heavily manufactured world, and find that we don’t hold on to authenticity and meaning any more. It’s hard to find something that speaks to us of past loves, struggles and triumphs, and enduring value.

With vintage, you can explore a whole array of design eras and discover which ones most resonate with your personality. Maybe you love the strong sassy look of the Retro era or the delicate romance of Art Nouveau. Your vintage piece is not only an accessory, it’s a conversation piece.


The masters of the past used techniques, standards of excellence and attention to detail that are rare today. Older Georgian and Victorian pieces are completely handmade and many vintage pieces are hand-finished. We have high standards when looking for pieces and only buy items we would want for our selves.


Vintage is very sought after now and some of it has provenance. Even so, it is generally a better value than comparable pieces made today. We are always on the hunt find fantastic values, unique and eclectic. Very few manufacturers would even make similar pieces anymore and if you wanted something to look like an old piece it would cost a fortune for custom. We look for the value in valuable pieces so that we can share it with our customers.

Australia needs more vintage jewellery stores like Dexy and Ness! I'm SO in love with my purchase - a sweet little vintage 18k gold crab pendant. It's just beautiful. And arrived super fast. SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS - and always buy pre-loved/vintage/antique if possible. That's where the magic is. :)

As soon as I saw this pendant I knew I had to have it! Goes so well with my 13 charm. Delivery was very quick and I am very happy with my purchase.

I bought a beautiful dainty 9ct Italian gold bracelet as a birthday gift for a friend. I gave it to her today & she absolutely loved it. Dexy & Ness sent everything so quickly, perfectly packaged and with great communication to boot. I would 100% recommend purchasing from them. Thank you for providing beautiful jewellery at extremely reasonable price points!

Fantastic experience from beginning to end. Great customer service, beautiful selection of jewellery. The ring I picked was delivered wonderfully fast. It was beautifully wrapped and just like the description and photos had promised. Would 100% recommend this business to anyone else.

I’ve ordered from Dexy and Ness before and she’s helped me acquire a piece not available on my country but in hers. The process was seamless and as fast as shipping from AUS to USA could be! Would be happy to do business with again.
