About The Curio

With a lifetime of experience and appreciation for antiques, Elle founded The Curio, formerly known as Lady Lovelies Curio, in December of 2016. She felt a true calling to antique jewelry, and just knew that she had to share this passion. Through the support of our wonderful clients, customers, colleagues, and friends, our company has grown exponentially since then.


These Princess Theodora earrings from The Curio can even elevate a messy bun, gray hair & librarian glasses! Thanks Elle for picking the perfect pair!

This is one special piece from The Curio.

This antique brooch is centered with a whopper of a moonstone and surrounded by chunky old mine cut diamonds and rubies. She's truly fit for a queen.

The Curio Originals Collection is my endeavor to create this phenomenon of jewel, with what I’ve learned from ancient jewelry, making this rare and special type of object at the point of intersection of wearability, visuality, fashionability, and, above all, something that does an excellent job of being a piece of jewelry. - Elle
