WHO WE ARE                                                      

Weingarten Gallery was founded in 1967 to manufacturer fine jewelry in Dayton OH, a few years later the Director of the Air Force Museum asked us if we could make a charm of the 1903 Wright Flyer in Sterling Silver. We did and it started us off to a collection of over 450 charms, tie tacks, and military/USAF insignia. Today we have expanded to include very high quality reproductions of US Wings from the first 1913 wings to WWI and II and even a few current wings for the Airman who wants to wear real silver. In addition we still make jewelry and many other fine items in sterling. All items are made in sterling silver and 14k Gold only. In 2003 we were issued by the Department of Defense the hallmark for current military insignia "W-32." We will be making our insignia only in sterling silver and 14k gold for those who care to wear only the best. We were located in Dayton, Ohio the Birthplace of Aviation and home of the Wright Brothers until 2006. We are now located in Indianapolis to be near family. We have supplied many fine jewelry stores such as Cartier and many museums, such as the Museum of the United States Air Force, Smithsonian, EAA and others with our work.

What I make.

We have charms and tie tacks of most aircraft since 1903 and a great deal of insignia in charms, tie tacks and full size wings since 1913. So if you are looking for that wing that was worn on a uniform in defense of our nation, drop us a line and we may be able to help you. In addition we have a full line of jewelry and many other items such as miniatures for dollhouses but everything is in 14K gold or Silver. No cheap junk metals. We are also happy to help people ID military wings to assist in you placing items up for auction, just e-mail us a photo and we will happy to assist. But US items only. We also offer repairs and restoration of sterling insignia with a fast turn around time.

Restoration and a catalog. I do restorations  of US Wings and other US insignia, missing a pin back I can fix it, have a wing with a hole in it, the odds are I can fix it.  This site only shows part of everything I make, for a complete list ask for our electronic catalog, its now over 170 pages and growing. In a way its more of a history of US Wings than a catalog. Maybe some day it will be a history book. Send an e-mail to mrmac@aol.com for more information on either restoration or the catalog.

Quilts

The Quilting section belongs to Cindy Weingarten. She hand makes the quilts shown using machine-quilting techniques. Her ability to combine colors has resulted in quilts that are a far cry of the quilts of yesterday and today represent a work of art that belongs on a wall rather than a bed. She has also listed fabrics and supplies as part of the site to give fellow quilters these products at a very reasonable price instead of the retail only found almost everywhere else. You can also find quilt charms in sterling in our jewelry section.

Military Jewelry

This section features Military Jewelry for both the person in uniform with class rings for each service to sweetheart jewelry for our military to give to those waiting at home.
