Our mission and how to contact us

MIDWEST ART OBJECT is a small business with stores in friendly Iowa, USA, and romantic Paris, France.

We have been in the business of managing, appraising and selling objets d'art, and estate jewelry since 2002. We offer fine jewelry pieces representing a variety of stylistic time periods for every budget.

While we specialize in the Victorian, Edwardian and the Art Nouveau, Art Déco eras, we also try to carry a significant inventory from other periods, as long as the item presented is authentic, possesses aesthetic qualities and is a good investment. Our fine jewelry items are made out of precious metals such as 14K, 18K or platinum. On occasion, we offer a few pieces of a lower grade of gold (such as 9K) and some silver pieces, but only if it is a genuine antique piece, if it is a designer one, or has a remarkable appeal.

Many of our items have a European provenance, and treasures turn up daily in our Paris store. So, check back with us frequently!

Whether you are searching for a small budget item or a more expensive higher-end fine jewelry piece, our certified experts will do their best to locate it for you. They spend a considerable amount of time researching items to guarantee their authenticity, and stand behind their estimations.

Our prices are carefully set. But we are always willing to work with you until you can buy what you want at a reasonable price. We just like to make people happy! For items priced over $500, we can offer a very flexible lay-a-way plan. Please, contact us for details.

We guarantee the authenticity of our items. Each one of them has been evaluated by our experts and checked by our competent jeweler. We do not alter our photos in anyway.

Please, do remember that diamonds or other gems are measured and graded while mounted to respect the integrity of the jewelry, and as mounting allows. This means that all weights and grades are necessarily approximate.

We list newer and beautiful items frequently. So, check back with us often. This way you won't miss anything you could not live without! Thanks!
