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 Cs" 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.

I could have never found this piece in a jewelry store. It is simply perfect. And the vendor was excellent to work with, and by work with I mean, I paid, and the item arrived a few days later even better than described.

About

Lonestar Estates - Fine Vintage and Antique Jewelry

Hi there! We're a husband a wife team based in Texas and have been proud Etsy vendors for 5 years! We've been pleased to offer a diverse selection of vintage and antique estate jewelry as well as a few handmade pieces upon occasion. Both of us have advanced college degrees in Fine Art and we approach jewelry buying with what we consider an artist's eye. We make thoughtful decisions on buying and selling jewelry based not only on value, but design integrity, uniqueness, and of course our own personal taste, a very important factor in how we curate our shop. We stand behind everything we offer, be it a luxurious Deco diamond ring to a simple gold band, and try to keep our shop stocked with pieces for every budget. We value modest pieces with nicer material for our less expensive jewelry, and try to buy the finest pieces within certain price points, often sacrificing size for quality. In other words, we focus solely on buying nicer, well made pieces, pieces that we would want to own and are up to our standards. We take pride in working with estate pieces and preserving excellent design from periods past through refurbishing and up-cycling. We have an excellent return policy and offer a layaway service as well. If you go through our feedback you'll get a better understanding of our sales past and our customers appreciation for what we do, offer nicely refurbished unique pieces at excellent value.

We're here to answer any questions so please contact us with any you may have, and thank you for checking out our shop!

We're a husband and wife team and our history in the jewelry business is on the wholesale diamond end (fourth generation).

We understand the difficulty of purchasing jewelry online, and do our best to answer any and every question you may have.
