Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
We are a jewelry consignment/sales business interested in helping you sell your jewelry, whether it’s platinum, gold, diamonds, gems, vintage, estate, contemporary, gently used or fine quality. Bring your items to us at your convenience, seven days a week, and have them evaluated by our on-site jewelers. We can safely display your jewelry in our cases, so people shopping for birthdays, Mother’s Day, weddings, graduation or “just-for-fun” occasions can find unbeatable deals on one-of-a-kind treasures. It was our good fortune that the former business owner was retiring and sought us as a group of friends who work well with people and have a passion for the jewelry industry.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Our staff is highly qualified; it includes two trained jewelers (one who is also a gemologist/appraiser). We are all friends with creative ideas and a strong commitment to our customers, creating a positive and upbeat store environment.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
Walks by the river; also, biking on the neat trails.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Being able to socialize and meet incredibly interesting people. We enjoy hearing and sharing the “history” behind a vintage piece and love being able to help customers find a piece of jewelry that “speaks to them.” Watching their reaction when they discover an excellent deal is priceless.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Land Ocean and Great Harvest Bread Company.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
Planet Earth Rising and the other stores on Sutter Street.
And finally, customer service is…?
Having the ability to interact and listen to the customers’ needs, using our resources to educate them on gemstones or diamond values, and assisting them in making informed purchases – all while providing great bargains.
Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased? In fact, our Introducing and Dine reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Wendy Sipple at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
