So much eclipse excitement! We at Maloy’s will be indulging responsibly. On Monday, August 21st, we will be opening a half hour LATE, at 10:30, so our staff can view the event without inconveniencing clients too much. Pop over to our Facebook page to take a peek at our fun “Total Eclipse” window, featuring a vintage sunlamp and goggles, a selection of moonstone jewelry, and of course some gorgeous engagement rings too.
We have lovely air conditioning, so you will be comfortable as you peruse. Just sayin’…
R&J had been shopping for an antique engagement ring, and discovered that they liked the Art Deco “panel top” style. R found a vintage ring mounting she liked, and sent a quick photo to her mom, who responded “oh, I have a ring mounting like that around here someplace”.
Sure enough, there was a family ring, but it had seen better days. Over the years, not only the center stone, but all the tiny accent diamonds had been removed. R&J brought it in to us, and quickly found a beautiful antique champagne color diamond for the center. We also restored all the tiny accent diamonds, and the ring was once again dazzling.
The best part though? Showing the restored ring to her grandmother. It had belonged to HER mother, (R’s great grandma), and she still remembered her mom wearing it.
Exactly the kind of jewelry story we are so honored to be a part of!
With July Fourth falling on a Tuesday this year, we will be open Sat.7/1, but CLOSED SUNDAY, MONDAY, & TUESDAY, 7/2-4. Enjoy the fireworks!
We blushed at the kindness of this note from JR-
“Thanks for the detailed response! You went above and beyond the call of duty to give me such a thorough answer; I always appreciate having all the info so that I can figure out my next steps. I can’t imagine going with anyone but Maloy’s — our wedding rings are such a perfect incarnation of our ideas, and that’s what I want for this ring. I’m not going to trust this to anyone else.”
We recently returned from one of our biggest buying trips of the year, in the wilds of Las Vegas. Our newest old treasures are now hitting the sales floor, all restored and ready for their new homes. Now is an EXCELLENT time to stop in to get first pick of all the new arrivals, which will start going up on the website soon.
We just found out that the route for the Grand Floral Parade has changed this year, but we will still be CLOSED THIS SATURDAY 6/10. (The route change caught us by surprise. We still assumed it went right in front of our door, so all our staff made vacation plans!) Sorry for any inconvenience, hope to see you soon
After such a harsh winter, we are ready for summer! We will be OPEN Saturday 5/27, but then CLOSED Sunday (as always) and CLOSED MONDAY 5/29 for Memorial Day. Enjoy the sunshine, see you Tuesday!
Due to a power outage that affected much of downtown Portland, Maloy’s will be closed on Tuesday, May 23rd and will re-open on Wednesday, May 24th. We are so sorry for this inconvenience and will look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for your kindness and excellent service that day. “Silk Embroidery” and I are having a lovely time together!”
