Our Story

Exceptional value antique, vintage and modern jewellery
across three convenient store locations.

 

Established in 1980, Burlington Antiques is a small, family-run business that first opened its doors on Collins St in Melbourne. 

Borne from broader antiques experience and a particular passion for antique jewellery, Burlingtons carved out a successful niche in the Melbourne jewellery market.  

Blending outstanding value with a range of varied and eclectic jewellery styles soon became the signature of Burlington Antiques.

In the late 80's, Burlingtons relocated its operation from the CBD to the city's antique hub along High St, Armadale. 

Though successful, it was a relatively short residence in Armadale, as a new business plan was hatched. 

A radical decision to take antique jewellery into a mainstream shopping mall led to the 1990 opening of Burlington Antiques in Melbourne's famed Chadstone Shopping Centre.

Making antique jewellery affordable and accessible to the mainstream shopping public proved to be a genius move, and the Chadstone location became Burlington Antiques' flagship store.

Burlingtons Chadstone has gone on to become the longest-serving jewellery store in the iconic shopping centre.

In 2008, Burlington Antiques finally expanded its operations, opening the doors of its second location as one of the founding stores in the newly-extended Westfield Doncaster Shopping Centre.

Replicating the winning formula from the Chadstone store, Burlington Antiques Doncaster has gone from strength to strength, establishing itself as a favourite for local jewellery lovers. 

With a growing desire to return to its city origins, a long-coveted retail spot opened up on Little Collins St in the heart of Melbourne.

Burlingtons had found its ideal city location and took the plunge to open a third store. 

Burlington Antiques made a triumphant return to the Melbourne CBD, welcoming the jewellery-buying public into its newest store in April 2014.

Featuring jewellery sourced locally and from around the globe, each of our stores has its own unique range comprising many one-off pieces. 

Packed with beautiful jewels and fascinating curios spanning the ages from the 1800's to the 21st century, we pride ourselves on having something for everyone.
