Back to the future

Back

Every once in a while, we get to experience time travel. That happened recently, and we want to share it with you too. One of our sources for nifty old things struck gold, quite literally, while visiting an elderly jeweler friend. Hidden in the very back corner of a very dusty safe, in an even dustier carton, he discovered a little door to 1949. Much to his delight, the box was filled with overstock diamond wedding bands and small engagement rings, pristine in their original, albeit yellowing, glassine envelopes! This is what is known in the business as “new old stock”. We are tickled to now have several of these time travelers here at Maloy’s, finally getting their day in the sunshine. One of the bands even has an original embossed tag, proudly proclaiming “genuine diamond, $30” Alas, we will not be able to honor that price…
