The answer is simple. Consignment offers you the best return on your item.
How does Consignment work? The Consignment process is simple. You bring us your quality Jewelry and we offer it for sale in one of our stores. When it sell we split the proceed 50/50. It is simple as that. We will also feature you Consigned items on our website as well as our facebook and Instagram pages when possible.
Will your items be automatically discounted for any reason? No. We view the items you Consign with us as your items until they sell or you pick them up. At times it is recommended that you leaver us a little flexibility to negotiate on you behalf but otherwise you will be contacted and be given the opportunity to approve any offers that we receive on your items. If a situation occurs where you are unreachable and we have decided that the offer is too good pass on, we will take the offer and take any discounts given will be taken from our portion. This happens very infrequently and usually only after an item has been with us for an extended period of time.
What if you decide that you want to keep your item(s). ? Your Consigned items are your items. Period. You may at any time (with a few days notice) stop in and pick up your items.
What if you decide that would simply like to take the buyout offers that were initially provided at the time of Consignment? Simply give us a call or email us. We will pull your original sheet of options and send you a check for the corresponding amount(s). In some cases adjustments will need to be made if the precious metal markets have recently experienced extreme volatility. While this has rarely been an issue we would like to make you aware that it is a possibility.
