About Spoonier

Sales 21,065
On Etsy since 2010

Love of: Upcycled, Photography, Antiques, Precious Metals and Jewelry = Spoon Rings!

Spoonier Is: .... A way of breathing life into an absolutely gorgeous era of Art Nouveau sterling silver spoon designs from the early 1900s. These, along with Victorian, Georgian, and Art Deco designs, with some 70s Retro designs also get to be Upcycled into new Statement pieces for everyday wear. The passion is in reviving the Unique Art Nouveau Flower, Goddess, Animal and every other newfound spoon pattern that pass through their jewelry benches.

Spoonier Started: .... In late 2010 with the desire to make use of all the amazing spoon patterns we saw being tossed aside, and combine it with our jewelry knowledge, s well as keep the freedom to have control over our own lives. We knew we could save these spoon's original beauty and history, while offering some really unique jewelry as Spoon Rings.

Spoonier Overcomes a Major Obstacle: …. One week before Christmas in 2015, Spoonier's brand new office was broken into and was robbed of over 500 pieces of jewelry, along with all of the sterling findings and vintage jewelry that look years to accumulate and create. Spoonier reached out to their Etsy family, and received an overwhelming amount of support… Etsy itself showed their love by reaching out and offering help, along with the community of fantastic advice, some random acts of kindness, and sincere camaraderie from shop owners and customers… This is what kept Spoonier afloat after having their livelihood invaded and taken down to bare bones inventory. Spoonier is back in full swing of things now, and even more proud to be a part of the Etsy .

We've now added Leo, Heidi, and Claudia for a perfect fit! They are all in it to win it!

"Teamwork Makes The Dream Work!"

Team Spoonier: .... "We love every spoon that comes in and cherish every customer who appreciates them. We know so much more about spoons, flowers and Art Nouveau than we ever thought we would! Customer service is our #1 Priority, and we will do whatever we can to make sure you get what you want, how you want it and when you want it. Our doors are always open for communication. Every member of Spoonier loves what they do, and it shows!"

Spoonier Castings: .... are high quality solid sterling silver reproductions of some of the more beautiful designs that are over 100 years old and were either not offered in Sterling Silver, or are no longer in production which makes them more difficult to find in spoon form (if not impossible) more than once. The goal is to have there be little to no difference from the original and to meet or exceed customer expectations. It's an awesome way to recycle the sterling silver bowls cut from the antique spoons. Spoonier Castings are Guaranteed for Life.

Spoonier Finds Spoons: …. at Antique shops (and they get to call that work lol) at Estate auctions, internet sales (Etsy has great deals) and every once in awhile at thrift stores. The Historical and Art Nouveau value to sterling flatware is often unknown or unappreciated. Spoonier is honored to be able to give a form of new birth to the beauty of the turn of the century Artistry of: Unger Brothers, Gorham, Whiting, Paye & Baker, Alvin Co, Towle, Durgin, and Watson Co to mention only a few! And are also greatly appreciative of the fans here on Etsy who also can see the timeless exquisiteness of these old spoons.

Thank you for reading!

Additional policies and FAQs
Want a ring you saw that has now sold? We offer custom requests! If you see something you would like changed just a bit, or perhaps have your own idea in mind, let's talk about making it happen! Production schedule changes with orders in the queue, so contact us via Etsy Convo to get a better idea of time-line with your project idea!

We do offer Free re-sizing for the life of the spoon ring! Spoon rings are great gifts! And we understand how it's difficult to know exactly what size to get at times (this has been known to happen). The best part of our wrap style is that they are adjustable! So if you get yourself or someone else a ring and it's a bit too small or too big, please feel free to let us know so we can hook you up with the correct size so you can wear your Spoonier spoon ring comfortably!

We also offer Free Finishing Options on all Spoon Jewelry. We do our best to get every detail correctly the first time so you can start enjoying your ring right away! But if you get your ring, and the finish doesn't quite look the way you expected, we will gladly refinish the ring for you to your liking, Free of charge- for the life of the ring! We pay for the shipping back to you and refund your shipping if the finish was not what you requested in your order.

(Quick explanation of what a "Brush Finish" is: All of our spoons are annealed and cleaned in pickle before they are bent- thus removing all natural patina. After bending and rounding, we apply a rapid oxidation with liver of sulfur that makes the entire ring 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 and on 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)

For more details on an item (More photos, views, etc), please contact me to get a better feel for the piece.

We do NOT Reserve items. We can fulfill requests, and make Custom Orders for serious inquiries. We do not offer Layaway payments.

If an item is accidentally purchased that was a custom order for another customer, we will refund the entire purchase and cancel the transaction.

We do offer to make most of our rings in a band style-- for no additional cost in most cases-- please send me a message if you'd like to have this done to your ring! The purchase would be considered a custom order and not eligible for a refund.

We can sometimes reverse the coil as well--again, please send us a message to see what we can do!

If there's anything I didn't cover that you have a questions about, please feel free to send me a message :)

Happy Shopping!!!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

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.

Custom and personalized orders

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.

What if I Get My Ring and I want it More or Less Shiny or Oxidized?

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.

Does Your Shop Engrave Your Rings?

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.

What if I get the Ring and It Doesn't Fit?

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.

What is a Brush Finish?

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

How Long will it Take for My Order to Arrive (within the US)?

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.

Wholesale availability

We do not offer wholesale. But if you plan to spend more than $500, we can give you a better coupon code if you send me a message.
