- Peter Suchy

Integrity, honesty, trust, knowledge and years of experience are the qualities consumers look for when choosing a jeweler. When it comes to vintage, estate and antique jewelry, those qualities are even more important. For over 30 years, Peter Suchy Jewelers has been in the business of collecting and selling vintage and estate jewelry and specializes in antique diamond engagement rings and signed pieces.

Peter Suchy Jewelers is an old-fashioned brick-and-mortar jewelry store located in Stamford, Connecticut and Mr. Suchy’s motto has always been: “Every one of our clients is important to me; without their trust I would not be here.” In fact, visitors to the store in Stamford have dubbed it a “Vintage Jewelry Museum” that houses over 10,000 pieces of jewelry—each piece with its own unique history. Our clients can also browse and purchase over 4,000 items for sale online at eBay, Ruby Lane and 1st Dibs.

Jewelry of the Ages

We carry all types of jewelry including Art Deco, Edwardian, retro, and modern as well as the Victorian and Georgian periods. We are pleased to offer gemstones set in platinum and pink, white, yellow and green gold. Our extensive collection includes sapphires, emeralds, rubies, aqua, coral, alexandrite, opals and many other fine rare gemstones. We also carry a wide variety of designer and signed pieces such as Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and many others both of the vintage and modern periods.

You’ll also find a variety of stone cuts that fill our gem cases such as emerald, cushion, old mine, European, transitional as well as round, pear, Asscher and step-cut.

Browse our wide collection of vintage and estate watches for men and women, from designers such as Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe, Tiffany & Co., and many others. Along with our own line of Suchy watches.

Thousands of jewels from throughout history are available for sale and if you can't find it anywhere else Peter probably has it.

Our Passion is Revealed Through Our History

Peter started in the jewelry business as a jewelry repair man and goldsmith. His love of gemstones and antique jewelry led to his study of diamonds and colored stones as well as antique and estate jewelry. From these humble beginnings he has built one of today's most successful estate jewelry businesses. He is now considered an expert on diamonds and colored stone grading as well as vintage and estate jewelry.

Peter has also developed his own line of unique styles and designs often inspired by authentic and antique Victorian and Art Deco original jewels. Each piece is remade with old cut stones using the highest quality old world jeweler techniques. These will always be labeled PSD for Peter Suchy Designs.

We offer expert jewelry design and fabrication on engagement rings to earrings. Our clients will also find jewelry and watch repair as well as antique jewelry restoration.

Our diamonds and gemstones are conflict free. Estate jewelry predates current gemstone conflicts. We carefully screen all of our vendors to be sure our jewels are not tainted by human rights violations.

Mr. Suchy’s Commitment

I am very proud of my reputation for honesty and integrity. Even within my online stores I am the same person as inside my Connecticut store. My secret is simple and forged by years of satisfied customers. I stand behind everything I sell and every item carries a 30-day money back warranty. If you do not love it, simply return it for a full refund.

Above all, I know it is scary and often intimidating to purchase vintage jewelry in an online venue. Therefore, I encourage everyone to do a Google search of Peter Suchy Jewelers and verify who we are and to learn more about our business history and reputation. I also encourage anyone looking at one of our more expensive items to come and inspect the item.

Our store hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Every listed item online is available to inspect inside the showroom. For people coming outside of Stamford Connecticut, we recommend contacting us first to make sure the item is still available. It is also helpful to print out any of the item listings you wish to see in advance of your visit. This will aid us in quickly finding the pieces you wish to inspect.

Finally, I have spent the last 30+ years building my business—one transaction and one client at a time. Each and every client is important to me. I am part of every item I sell and highly enjoy passing on each piece to a new owner. The appreciation, surprises, engagements and “wow” factor are what make my day—each and every day.
