lonestarestates' Shop Announcement

Welcome to our Etsy shop! We love vintage diamond jewelry, both Deco and Retro period pieces, and have a special affection for mid-century design as well. Regardless of the period, we're first and foremost interested in uniqueness of design and quality of materials.

We pride ourselves on our fine collection of vintage diamond jewelry with a special focus on unique bridal pieces. Our goal is to help you find the perfect piece for you, whether it's for bridal wear, cocktail wear, or a unique addition to your collection. We work hands on with a small team of independent professional jewelers with strong resumes and expert repair skills. When doing repair work or complete refurbishing, our focus is on maintaining the antique integrity of the original design, and we prefer the bare minimum repair so as not to alter a piece's quirkiness. We are always shopping for unique pieces at excellent value in order to pass on the savings to you. As a husband and wife team with a very low overhead, we feel are prices are as competitive as any internet vendor.

Last but not least, we love diamonds and emphasize buying and selling stones with a better cut, one of the "four c's" that is often overlooked but the one we consider of utmost importance when buying diamond jewelry. The diamond's cut is what makes it shine and gives it fire. We love old European cut diamonds and the simplistic fire of small single cuts. We love the modern brilliant cut, particularly when used in vintage pieces when fine quality was the norm. But most of all, we love what we do, and treat each transaction with the detail, care, and affection that it deserves.
