About Mel's Treasures

Mel's Treasures is a woman-led small business that specializes in vintage and antique fine jewelry. Melissa, or Mel, restores old gold, shares one of a kind vintage items from the past, and sources treasures for those looking for something in particular. Every item is unique and sourced from trusted jewelry experts who specialize in gemology, precious metals or customizations. Every item is authenticated, tested and approved by Melissa, the owner, and her sources. All sources have decades of reliable experience through the exquisite connections in New York City's finest diamond district and renowned jewelers. Melissa grew up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and established strong relationships with several jewelers throughout her childhood and lifetime. Her mother was an artist and art representation, so she was exposed to NYC's jewelry and art world at a young age.

These treasures are always thoughtfully curated and mindfully sourced. Melissa, the owner and treasure hunter, began Mel's Treasures in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic by helping small jewelry businesses to stay in business during a very difficult time for jewelers who solely relied on foot traffic. She began by going door to door to jewelry shops in Brooklyn and Manhattan and offering her digital marketing experience to small shops. As this concept and her relationships began to unfold, Melissa realized how impactful this business was becoming. She built her own social media platform and website on her own, and developed stronger relationships with some of NYC's oldest jewelry companies. As Mel's Treasures began to grow, so did Melissa's dedication and passion for sustainable fine jewelry. Melissa continues her passions by sourcing from all part of NYC, and aims to provide the best quality vintage jewelry that is equally attainable for those starting their collection and exquisitely unique. 

Policy & Info

general policy

General Policy

Every purchase is final sale! Please take the time to look at all the descriptive details, measurements and pictures. Weight and width are crucial elements, and these details are included in my product descriptions. Insurance is not included in the standard shipping, so if you require insurance it is an extra charge. Even though I have a no return policy, there are a few exceptions on a case by case basis. (ie. if an item is damaged) I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Layaway Policy

Layaway options are available on items at checkout through shop pay or PayPal! All items are posted on my IGS first (excluding my site fee) and then they are added to my website if they have not sold yet. All new arrivals will then include my Shopify site fee. Layaway is usually only available on my website, but there are a few exceptions to this depending on the item and client. If you are unable to make your layaway payments on time outside of shop pay, there will be a small re-stocking fee. Please reach out for any further questions!

Quality Control

Every item listed has been thoughtfully and mindfully resourced through qualified jewelers and estate sales. I personally resource every piece, and my jewelers test all the gold and quality of the items. I am not an expert in diamonds or gemstones, so if you have specific questions please reach out to clarify before purchasing! All important information is provided in my posts and gold quality is guaranteed. Please feel free to reach out to me for any specific questions.
