Announcement   If you like antique, vintage and/or estate jewelry you have come to the right place! Rings, pins, bracelets, earrings, watch chains, pendants and necklaces; we have them here. We work hard to provide you quality jewelry at realistic and reasonable prices. As we like to say: Not your typical jewelry store; Not your typical jewelry! 

Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry was founded in 1950 by my mom Dorothy Gallun. At 96 years young she still reports to work at our brick and mortar store Monday through Friday....proving, of course, that jewelry keeps you young! When people ask me (Patty) how long I have been in business with my mom I tell them basically from the day I was born. When I was a baby, mom would put me in a basket, put me under one of the jewelry counters and gave me a bottle when I cried...frankly, I can't think of a better way to grow up; warm cozy basket, milk, mom and being surrounded by beautiful jewelry!! After I graduated from Ripon College in Ripon, WI mom sent me to the Gemological Institute of America in California where I earned my Graduate Gemologist diploma. It was hard, I mean studying on the beach with all that sand getting into your books, the cool ocean breezes flipping the pages of those books and not to mention the beautiful scenery (the tan buff bodies of beach boys!)....well somehow I managed! 

Today, mom and I are co-owners of Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry and I could not ask for a better business partner!! She is the best of the best!! Love you mom!

About

A Lifetime of Loving Jewelry

Welcome to Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry! If antique and estate jewelry is your passion you've come to the right place! From antique rings, brooches, earrings and bracelets we work diligently on having a wide selection of each. If you are looking for a particular item and you do not see it in our shop, please feel free to contact us as we have a gigantic inventory of antique and estate jewelry. By no means is our Etsy shop the extent of our merchandise!

I was born and raised in the antique jewelry business and have loved jewelry since the day I was born! After graduating in residency from the Gemological Institute of America in California, I joined forces with my mother in the family jewelry business (Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry). Mom started the business in 1950 and at 96 comes into the store every day! We believe that jewelry should be fun...with no stress attached...that's why we will do everything we can to make your purchasing experience enjoyable. We will always do everything possible to merit the confidence you have shown in us! Your business is very important to us and we want, at least, another 60 years of happy customers!!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

If your item needs to be sized, engraved etc., please add an additional 5 working days to shipping estimates. Antique jewelry requires skilled jewelers that are accustomed to working on fine antique jewelry, therefore we prefer that all sizing and alterations be preformed by our jewelers.

Each ring purchased from us includes one complimentary sizing. Please understand some rings cannot be sized, such as eternity bands, enameled rings or rings that would have to be sized so much that the integrity of the mounting would be compromised. It is for that reason we ask prior to purchase, that you ask if the ring can be sized to your specifications.
