Good morning and happy Monday!!! At the Charleston Jeweler, we prioritize our clients and treat them like family. We do our very best to make you feel welcomed. Selling an old piece of jewelry, or an engagement ring that is no longer being used is sometimes not the easiest process, both mentally & emotionally. We want to make sure that you are first and foremost comfortable doing so. . We understand that sometimes the reason for selling your jewelry is due to hard times or unhappy times. We always ask our clients a couple of questions after giving a quote for their items:

  • do you wear it?
  • have you worn it in within the last 6 months?
  • Do you feel a strong emotional attachment to the jewelry?

If the answer is a "yes" to any of these, we prefer to not buy something you still love and cherish so dearly. We see a variety of situations due to which a client might consider selling their items. These include loss of a loved one, divorce, estate settlement, an old family heirloom that is no longer being used. We are extremely delicate and understanding of your pieces and do our very best to offer the reasonable advice on selling your jewelry the best way possible, where it benefits you the most. Selling old jewelry can bring back many emotions and feelings, and it is totally okay to feel a certain way about it.

We have had many experiences with our clients that came in to sell their jewelry due to unforeseen circumstances and negative experiences, but they live with a smile on their face. Consider it a way for it to relieve you of your extra baggage, that may have been taking an emotional toll on you.

We are very honored to be the reason when we are able to put a smile on a clients face due to a simple procedure, where both parties can benefit mutually.

Trust your jeweler and the source through which you are selling your jewelry. We assure you that you are in great hands and will have a very positive experience at The Charleston Jeweler! Call us today to get your hassle-free consultation appointment set up! We look forward to meeting with you.

Tiffany and co. - the "411" on why we love it!

When you are gifted a beautiful baby blue box with the most perfectly-wrapped white ribbon around it… you know it’s a great day! I mean WHO doesn’t love a Tiffany present? It’s literally like Christmas when I open a signature baby blue gift box! As we all know it, Tiffany & Co holds their jewelry and gift items to an extremely high standard. It is a unique and fabulous brand all at once. It is a very well-recognized brand all over the world, and a staple for many Jewelers in the industry. One of the most desirable Tiffany and Co. pieces are ones that are from a very early time period for instance Edwardian Era (circa 1915) or the Art Deco era, circa 1920s.

At the Charleston Jeweler, one of our favorite designer brands is Tiffany & Co. We have spent countless hours learning about the brand and their signature collection items. We enjoy interacting with clients that are avid Tiffany and Co. jewelry and pieces collectors. We are also proud to say that we have acquired at the least over 1000s of Tiffany and Co. pieces over the last few years. These include signature Tiffany and Co. engagement rings with GIA certified diamonds, diamond studs, bracelets, necklaces, uniquely designed figurine brooches, antique diamond engagement rings etc. We have also purchased lots of great jewelry pieces from contributing designers to Tiffany and Co. such as Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, Jean Schlumberger and many other.

Our buyers at the Charleston Jewelers truly appreciate and have a passion for well-crafted jewelry, thereby understanding the beauty and value of pieces created by such well-known designers.

Our number one priority is customer satisfaction for all our clients, and we want to make sure that you leave here with the most amazing experience ever. At the Charleston Jeweler, we value your jewelry and treat it like our own.

GIA training sets us apart in the Diamond Buying industry tremendously.  For starters, knowing the accurate grading of a Diamond for example: Color and Clarity can have a potential increase in value, compared to other Diamonds. GIA reports are highly recommended by our buyers. It can help determine the value when buying and selling as well as assure a long-term value should you decide to hold on to your diamond for a long time. We don't stock an inventory of GIA certified stones in our office; however if you are looking to purchase an engagement ring and one that is GIA certified, we'd be happy to make an appointment with you where we would be able to show you on the basis of your preference a handful of GIA certified diamonds to choose from.
