Philosophy

We understand that jewelry has huge emotional significance for both the giver and the wearer. Whether we are helping you choose an engagement ring, re-design a family piece, or sort through the anguish of an estate, we are honored to be of service.

earringsUltimately, we believe that jewelry is a way to use metal and minerals to create a tangible symbol of a celebration. We believe that a piece of jewelry, whether for yourself or for someone you love, should be beautifully made, unique, and deeply treasured.

We specialize in antique and vintage jewelry because we feel it demonstrates beautiful principles. Thoughtful design, incredible craftsmanship, fine materials and historical significance. The skill, dedication, and creativity of jewelry artisans lost to history are honored every day at Maloy’s. All vintage pieces are fully restored on site, because we know that they deserve to be loved for another lifetime. Our custom work honors the skill and inventiveness of our own treasured artists, who do all their work right here on the mezzanine level of the shop.

With over 150 years of collective experience in finely made antique and custom jewelry, Maloy’s staff has a deep and broad understanding of the styles, materials, techniques and virtues of well made jewelry. Use us as a resource. We are happy to share our extensive knowledge with you, to help you make the best choices for your taste, lifestyle and budget. We can connect you with an exquisite piece from the past, or restore an heirloom that’s been in the family. We also create splendid jewels for future generations to cherish, all with the care and pride of craftsmen from another century.

A local, family run business for over 30 years, Maloy’s uses recycled metals and antique stones. We repurpose and reclaim design phrases from badly damaged items so they can be appreciated by future generations. We treat our clients, staff, and the jewelry with care and respect.

Working with you has been a pleasure throughout, in every way: you’re the model of what a jeweler ought to be, in a way that’s becoming less and less common (across all the professions, I suppose). Thank you so much for maintaining the same old-world quality in your service that you do in your lovely jewels!
