The William May Story

William May has been involved in the British jewellery industry for almost 200 years, and we’re extremely proud of our rich heritage. 

As an independently-owned company, we supply a vast array of exquisite vintage jewellery that you simply won’t find in a high street store. 

All of our pre-loved items are of the highest quality, and we have an abundance of exclusive and valuable pieces within our collection. Although our range is extensive, there are certain types of jewellery that we specialise in. 

These include: 

Luxury watches

Heavy Gold Bracelets & Necklaces

Tennis Bracelets 

Stone set rings

Diamond engagement rings


While we are very much a modern company, we still hold traditional values when it comes to looking after our customers. Whether you are looking for a Rolex watch or a stylish tennis bracelet, we’re more than happy to use our expertise and experience to help you find the perfect piece of jewellery. 

In many ways, our products reflect our ethos. While we love vintage jewellery, we also ensure that our pieces are contemporary. You could say that our jewellery is timeless. 

At William May, we’re all extremely passionate about jewellery, and the history behind each piece absolutely fascinates us. After all, your wristwatch, ring or birth stone is not just a fashionable accessory, it is a status symbol and a unique conversation starter. 

We’re sure you’ll find jewellery on our website that leaves you suitably amazed.
