Welcome! My name is Elisabeth Benamou and I am the owner of Value Vintage, a consignment business established in 2012 in Vancouver, Canada specializing in Vintage Collectibles. I have been actively involved in Estate Jewelry and Antiques for more than three decades.
We currently offer shipping to Canada & US. All items are securely wrapped, packaged & tracked with appropriate insurance.
As this is a consignment business, returns are accepted only within the first 5 business days of receipt. The buyer must email us within this time and return the item within 10 business days, assumes the costs of shipping and carrying the same insurance coverage charges. Altered or modified pieces will not be accepted (example: sizing, engraving, shortening, lengthening etc..). Each piece is thoroughly inspected, and most Jewellery pieces come with an independent appraisal.
Selling Your Items :
Taking Consignments of Jewellery, China, Glass, Objets d’Art, and Miscellaneous items. We will research, photograph, and list your items on our site, through trade shows, and to other dealers all over North America. Some items will not appear on the site as we may already have clients for them.

Cleaning of your items
If your pieces need some TLC to make them more sell-able, let us revive them for you. We will have our experts (Goldsmiths, Silversmiths, Watchmakers, etc..) give them the attention they deserve.
We provide Jewellery Design for your Bridal Jewellery needs, as well any other design you might want to spoil yourself with. You can either supply your own gems, or we can supply them to you. Our Master Goldsmith creates amazing one of a kind pieces in close co-operation with the Designer.
An initial consultation will be done at no charge to discuss your needs, and budget.

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
Recycling can also be done with old jewellery. If you have jewellery that you use to love but don’t love it as much now, we can help! Or if you’ve been left your Aunt Mavis’ jewellery but it’s not your style, we can make it your style. We can put our creative minds to work and re-design using your gems (or ours), and the metals van be recycled too making it more cost effective. Call us for a free consultation today.
Having started in Montreal in my family Jewellery Wholesale and Manufacturing business in my teens, I was involved in all levels of the Jewellery Trade in my career. I acted as a Sales Manager in all three levels –Manufacturing –Wholesale- Retail. I served in Appraising for taking in Consignments for Antique Jewellery dealers, and Retailers, As a Head Buyer for several Jewellery outfits in Vancouver, I made offers to purchase from the public. My career extends to Montreal, New York, and Paris. I wanted to become an expert since I was hands-on with Diamonds and Gemstones, so in the 80s, I studied at the Gemological Institute of America in New York City. I am a GIA Graduate Gemologist.
My passions include being in contact with objects that tie us to the past and to the history that came with these objects. It is also to create Jewellery for you. Many of my designs will have a Vintage feel to them, others will be completely unique like the person you may be. In order to design something that you will love to have, I take the time to get to know you and find out about your lifestyle, so that the jewellery you will wear will be an extension of your personality.
I specialized in Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands in the past, but I will create any piece you have in mind, and as conservative or as wild as you are…
My interest in Vintage Collectibles dates back to my late teen when I started collecting Art Glass and Antique Jeweller- mostly because of the beauty of the workmanship. I love to browse and participate in all kinds of flea markets, garage sales etc. finding treasures amongst junk is always exciting and here I have sifted carefully the treasures from the junk so you won’t have to.
