Announcement    Welcome to our Etsy Store. Most of our pieces have a provenance, and are made out of precious metals such as 14K, 18K or platinum and natural gems and pearls.

On occasion, we offer a few pieces of a lower grade of gold (such as 9K) and some silver pieces, but only if it is an estate piece, if it is a designer one, or has a remarkable appeal, which is often the case with historical pieces.

We are also offering a multitude of other art objects, many of them have a provenance and all of them are guaranteed to be as described.

We offer very flexible lay-a-way plans and will work with you until you can buy what you want.

All of our pieces have been checked by our competent jeweler and estimated by our team of experts. We are proud members of the International Gem Society. Buy with confidence! Over the last 22 years that we have been in business, we have always received positive real evaluations.

Thank you for your interest in our Store!

About MidwestArtObjects

Sales 439
On Etsy since 2013

From Academia to the antique jewelry business and to the art market. A unending shared passion.

Following an academic career, I have returned to my first passion --Art.

My passion for fine vintage, antique jewelry, and art objects, has run parallel to my academic life. When the latter ended, I took training in Paris and elsewhere in Europe to refine and further develop my passion and trade.

Thus, following an illness, when I was given a second chance to deal with life's many challenges, and never doing things half way, I decided to run and mange two stores located in Paris (France and in Ames, Iowa (USA). Our stores specialize in 19th century estate jewelry, the Art Nouveau/Art déco periods, but our inventory includes many vintage pieces from other periods, not all of which are listed on this website. So, if you are looking for that special, difficult-to-find piece of jewelry or object d'art, please contact us. Our team of experts, will scout the markets and try to locate it for you.

Our jewelry pieces are originals and are not mass produced. We sell unique, unusual and authentic pieces that have nothing in common with "big Box" jewelry stores.

We pride ourselves in offering items affordable to clients with small as well as with larger budget. We will work with you and your personal financial situation to the best of our ability.

Please visit our website, ask questions and contact us with your requests. Thank you
