A great Southwestern souvenir spoon. This sterling spoon was made by Watson & Newell Co. and the front and reverse feature a figural cactus with ALBUQUERQUE written on the back. Unengraved and in excellent shape with very little wear! An uncommon and unique pattern!

These are antique spoons that are either in too good condition for us to use (ie, they're worth more as spoons), are too difficult to bend or wouldn't make good spoon rings. Nonetheless, they are rare and unique patterns that are lovely and very hard to find.

Frequently asked questions about Spoonier

There are many ways we can help you find your ring size! We offer store credit of the entire product price of our ring sizers. Or I can give specific to your ring instructions on how to adjust at home after purchase. Just send us a message!

To ensure a good fit, make sure to measure your finger from knuckle to knuckle and compare it with the amount of mm indicated in the ---specs--- location of the listing. For wider rings like Spoon Rings, you typically want to go up about .25 in ring size and up to .5 size for the very wide designs.
Feel free to ask us about our Contact List for items you may see that are no longer in our store or if you have a specific pattern you'd like to request. We are always trying to restock and take custom orders all the time.
Due to the nature of our inventory, original spoons are sometimes hard to find and can take a few weeks, up to a couple of years depending on the pattern!
Casting reproductions take about 2 to 5 weeks, rush orders are available a well.
We offer Free finishing! We brush finish all of our handmade rings, but do offer a few different finishing options before shipping:
- Cloth Polishing- shiny but still vintage with a satin brush finish slightly visible and still dark in the crevices
- Re Brush- keep the satin brush finish, but make the patina/ tarnish lighter
- Combination of 1 & 2- Lighten the patina with a re Brush, then give it a cloth polish.

And if you get your ring and you'd like an extra polish, or a bit less patina, or whatever you prefer, just send it on back and we'll make sure you love your ring with photos before we ship it back.
We do not offer engraving at this time, but we do remove them for free! The engravings you see on our rings are antique and original to the spoon we bent.
Sometimes we have been able to find spoons with specific engraved letters when requested! But this usually takes a few weeks to shop around for.
We do offer FREE re-sizing on all Spoonier SPOON ring orders- no expiration! Some rings may be able to be pinched down a little, but due to the soft Sterling we use, many tools used may scratch or dent the silver! So the best thing to do would be to send it back to us, or get it sized at a local jewelry store. Please message us for details.
All of our spoons are annealed and cleaned in pickle before they are bent- thus removing most of if not all natural patina. After bending and rounding, we apply a rapid oxidation with liver of sulfur that makes the entire ring a graphite grey/black. We then remove this patina on all of the raised surfaces of the spoon ring with a microfiber wheel Brush. This gently removes the patina from the more ornate parts of the ring and the inside of the ring by brushing it with the microfibers. This gives it a more satin finish that is easier to photo and looks more Vintage- Hence: Brush Finish
Please allow 3-10 business days for domestic orders to arrive, and be sure to include a ring size if you weren't able to in the ordering process. Faster shipping available upon request.
We do offer discounts for wholesale orders. The more you order, the bigger the discount. We create individual item discounts since each piece can vary quite a bit in how much it cost us to purchase and make. Send me a list of the Item number (found at the end of every listing title), and I'll send you over my best price!
