About UsShowing out-of-the-ordinary antique, vintage and more recent estate jewelry. Every item has been carefully selected for quality, condition and style to be among the best pre-owned jewelry found anywhere!
My grandfather founded a jewelry store in Oklahoma City in 1904. I worked there for 14 years before opening my own business in 1991. My life's work has been estate jewelry: finding it, appraising it, and selling it. To owners, I offer professional consulting service. I have helped many hundreds of private owners understand what they own and take the next step that is right for them. I have also advised trusts, charitable organizations and other business and legal entities. I have also enabled many of my clients to liquidate their jewelry assets with confidence.
My love for estate jewelry comes from the items themselves and the stories they tell. To be able to hold these precious materials in one's hand would be awe-inspiring enough, yet more if they are fashioned into beautiful jewelry. But to think of them going from maker to seller to buyer and owner, the times in which these people lived and their triumphs and struggles, is to understand the great meaning that jewelry has, and makes what I do a higher calling for me.
I am fascinated by why and how people place value in jewelry. This has led me to earn the Accredited Senior Appraiser designation from the American Society of Appraisers, the nation's oldest and largest appraisal society. This year I was elected chairman of the Society's gems & jewelry discipline. In that role, as well as in my own business, I work to remove the mystery from gems and jewelry while preserving the magic.
I also hold two titles as a gemologist: Gemological Institute of America (Graduate Gemologist) and Fellow, Gemmological Association of Great Britain.
I invite you to share my love of estate jewelry!
