Weldons Antique Dealers of Dublin are one of Ireland's leading specialists in diamond engagement rings, Irish antique silver and vintage jewellery. We are one of the founding members of the Irish Antique Dealer's Association.
James Weldon founded the business circa. 1895, coming to Dublin from county Kildare. He dealt extensively in diamonds, old Irish silver and pictures, until his death in 1951.
His son James started on his own circa. 1935, and in 1940 moved from Marlborough Street to our current location at 55 Clarendon Street. He was a member of the Company of Goldsmiths of Dublin, and served a period as Master Warden.
James's wife Joan continued trading from 1957, her son James entered the business in the 1960s. In 1996 James was made a member of the Company of Goldsmiths of Dublin, and in 2001 became Master Warden. James is widely regarded as the world's leading expert on Georgian Irish silver.
Garret is the fourth generation of the family to join Weldons. Garret is a GIA Graduate Gemmologist. He joined the business in 2000, and has studied diamond grading and coloured gemstone grading with the GIA in both London and New York.
We are also the world's leading experts in the field of antique Irish silver, and for four generations have helped to build some of the finest collections extant. We travel the world to find pieces of the highest quality and utmost rarity.
