Abercrombie Gems + Precious Metals was founded in Austin, TX in 1989 by Ron Rosenberg out of a passion for unique jewelry and antiques. As a family-owned business building a relationship with the community of Austin for over 25 years, our mission has always been to cultivate a distinctive collection of jewelry ranging from estate and antique, contemporary and custom. We also are competitive buyers of estate pieces, loose and set diamonds, precious metals, and timepieces.
In 2005, Ron’s son AJ, himself a skilled jeweler, took over the business and has greatly expanded the retail and custom offerings at Abercrombie Gems. With a long-time, dedicated staff assisting him, AJ has made Abercrombie Gems the premier destination in Austin when it comes to one-of-a-kind jewelry, vintage bridal pieces, and spectacular custom designs.
Abercrombie Gems + Precious Metals aims to be the premiere store in Austin for customers to find vintage, antique, and custom offerings, as well as the foremost location for the purchase of estate pieces, set and loose diamonds, precious metals, and time pieces. Our selection of Art Deco and other vintage bridal jewelry is the largest and best-curated in the city, and we also carry many other types of pieces from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, retro, and contemporary periods.
Other services and specialties include both antique and contemporary-cut loose diamonds of any shape, custom designs, appraisals, gold, diamond, and watch buying/trade-ins, and full-service jewelry repair done on site.
