We are excited to introduce The Martins Collection, a diverse accumulation of magnificent and unique jewels from the most impressive eras of design.
From the private personal collection of a prolific Portuguese jewellery collector, these pieces encompass a variety of beautiful designs and styles from around the globe.
What began as a childhood love of pirates and their gleaming treasure chests soon evolved into a love-affair with luxurious and spectacular jewellery, motivated by quality, not quantity. With many of the pieces descending from noble and affluent owners, these jewels are encrusted with tens of carats worth of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and pearls.
These astounding pieces have been expertly chosen and encompass a variety of aesthetics and styles. Here is an insight into three of the pieces from the collection and the story behind them…

This beautiful suite is more than a century old as it has been handed down through generations of an affluent family.
A necklace encrusted with 170 baguette shaped diamonds of 1.7 carat and 433 brilliant-cut diamonds.
