Heirloom Redesign and Preservation

The Antiquarian preserves history for future generations. We make new jewelry, but we’re kind of history nerds at heart. As a company founded by an archaeologist, we take pride in restoring antiques to their former glory, or giving new life to an item that is no longer considered fashionable. Check out our current inventory of authentically antique items, or contact us to repurpose an antique piece.

About the Antiquarian

In a world of fast fashion and ever-changing trends, The Antiquarian is a brand that looks to the foundations of history to inspire innovation, capture curiosity, and build jewels that are as timeless as they are of the moment. Fine jewelry that is both refined and accessible, The Antiquarian utilizes precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum to form a collection of both restored antique jewelry and modern fine jewelry that pushes the boundaries of modernity and antiquity.

From this foundry, The Antiquarian was born.
