It’s no time to be invisible. Get seen and learn how to take compliments. Here you’ll find boutique-quality jewelry both handmade and curated from vintage and new findings. Your friends will ask you about what you’re wearing, and your gifts will make you a hero. minusOne is just old-fashioned jewelry – unique, bold, classic, fabulous and affordable gifts for you and the people you love.

made in NY

minusOne is small business. And if it matters to you, woman-owned. I make and ship each piece for you. I respond to your messages, and if you need a custom fit, non-standard length, clip-on earring back, or to make a return, ask a question, or want just the right hand-written note for your best friend who lives across the country or around the world, I hear you. I’ve been selling on Etsy since 2009 (2008 if you count my vintage fabric pin cushion phase – and yes, they were awesome) – so if you prefer to shop on that platform, I’d love to support you there too – minusOne.etsy.com.

contemporary jewelry with vintage style

The romance of the past appeals to me, and if you like my shop, it appeals to you, too. Here you’ll find pieces inspired by history, past fashions, and vintage costume jewelry. minusOne contemporary designs bring a modern, fresh feel to old-school style.

Most pieces in the shop are vintage-inspired, and some are made with true vintage findings.

Vintage-inspired earrings are shown worn for proportion, but earring backs are new. Your earrings will arrive unworn and on hypoallergenic sterling silver or 14K gold fill ear wires. High quality materials even for the most sensitive ears.
