Can you help me with all this jewelry I inherited from my deceased family member?
Of course. Bring your jewelry in at any time and the store owner can help you sort through your jewelry. She can tell you what is gold, what is of value, sort out groups to be divided amongst your siblings, suggest to sell in consignment or even scrap for cash!
How do your Consignment and Estate sales work?
We will take in your old jewelry or high end watches that you may not wear, have inherited, or just don't want anymore and price them to sell in our Consignment case. We do not take costume jewelry or sterling silver, just pieces of real gold or of higher value. Your piece stays in our case around 6 months until being returned to you or renegotiating a lower price. You receive 75% of the sale, and we keep the remaining 25%.
Do you engrave?
Yes! Most flat surface items can be done on site by our engraver but we have a number of great engravers that we can send your items out to be machine or hand engraved. Prices vary on piece and amount of engraving.
Can you make duplicates of lost or stolen items?
We most certainly can. If it's not something we can find in our huge catalog of vendors and resources, we can custom make almost anything up ourselves!
Do you plate jewelry?
