Custom Engagement Ring & Custom Jewelry Design
Whether you’re looking for a custom engagement ring or trying to repurpose a family antique as a gift, we can help. 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 a former archaeologist, we take pride in restoring antiques to their former glory, or giving new life to an item that is no longer considered fashionable.
We are so honored to win the Charlotte Magazine Editors Choice Award for Best Custom Jeweler in Charlotte for 2023!

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.
A degree-holding Archaeologist, Lindsay Parker has always been fascinated with how we incorporate objects into our everyday lives. Spending summers digging up pieces of history, she became enthralled by the items we choose to surround ourselves with, focusing on personal adornment and the pieces we choose to pass down. After a stint in corporate america, learning about product design, she spent four years apprenticing under a master jeweler, focusing on the design and construction of fine jewelry. From this foundry, The Antiquarian was born.
