Having dedicated his life to antique jewellery, Elkan Wijnberg possesses a treasure trove of knowledge that is rivalled by few. His journey began when he was just eight years old and it has cumulated in his store in Antwerp, Belgium. At Adin Antique Jewellery, he buys, fixes and sells antique jewellery, and tracks down the compelling stories these unique pieces have to tell. “Jewellery is the materialisation of emotion,” says Wijnberg, founder and owner of Adin. He specialises in fine antique, vintage and estate jewellery, dating from the late 20th century, all the way back to the 17th century.
