I am the President of Maurice Badler Fine Jewelry, and have more than 30 years of experience in the fine jewelry industry. I’ve solved the consumer’s dilemma of how to maximize the return when reselling jewelry.
Sometimes there are estates that need to be liquidated. Some clients have little need for outdated designs. Still others may decide that the money tied up in a jewelry box or vault can be put to better use. Whatever the reason, it is extremely difficult for a consumer to maximize the amount they will receive for their gold and diamond jewelry. You can go to many places and get quotes, but that will serve only to wear out your shoes. Why?
There are several types of jewelry that come across a buyer’s desk:
• Loose or mounted diamonds of various sizes and qualities
• Signed designer pieces
• Vintage watches
• Fine and commercial grade colored gemstones
• Scrap gold
When you bring your mounted diamond to a buying firm, the weight and grade is estimated. Without certificates from major laboratories, the buyer must purchase conservatively. No single buyer has use for all of these categories. If his/her company has no use for your item, it must be flipped to someone else who can resell it as a whole or have use for the components. While the buyer can put cash on the table immediately or write a check, they have to pay less on the types they cannot use in order to quickly resell them. This is not a disreputable practice for which they should be criticized. It is simple business practice that ensures their companies make a profit.
I have a better way.
I’ve been running Maurice Badler Fine Jewelry for more than 30 years. I know which companies will only deal with higher quality diamonds and which ones prefer commercial grades; which ones specialize in larger diamonds and which ones only use smaller gems. We know the prime buyers of fine colored gems such as rubies, sapphires and emeralds, and which want the fine rare garnets or jade. We know who will be a premium for signed designer pieces and have the connections to get the signed pieces authenticated. And of course, we can simply refine broken items for scrap value as well.
Bring your estate jewelry or your unwanted pieces to Maurice Badler Fine Jewelry. We will look at each piece to see how many categories you have and work hard to maximize the money that you receive. We can obtain diamond certificates when needed. When the items are sold, Maurice Badler will earn a commission. If you want to get the most return from your valuable jewelry and gemstones, meet with Jeffrey Badler. The meeting will be at no cost to you.
