About Us
Something Old. Something New. Something You.™

In 2005, I was a young sales associate at Washington D.C.'s oldest jeweler. With a growing knowledge for jewelry, I would carefully take out each piece from it's case, admire it, try it on and put it back with an aching heart.

One day, an endearing couple came in and asked to have a few family heirloom pieces appraised. I wrote up the appraisal and looked at each piece meticulously. I shared with them as much as I had gathered with my months of learning and obsessing, and was extremely captivated with one particular piece; a Victorian 14k yellow gold and old mine cut diamond brooch. I'd never seen so much detail work in my life. When I notified them to tell them their appraisal had been written up, they walked into the store, picked up their jewelry items and said because I was so kind and courteous to them, they wanted to give me the Victorian brooch as a thank you.

I cried. The lovely old couple cried. We all cried. It was one of the most touching moments of my young life. They asked me to have that piece because they saw that undeniable passion in my eyes. I had found my niche. To this day, that pin has more meaning to me than anything I've ever owned. It started my love and appreciation for antique jewelry, and it still stands as my company's logo today. I hope everyone who visits my shop that covets fine antique & estate jewelry like I do will one day find that extraordinary piece as I have.

"Something Old" stands for continuity and tradition. "Something New" represents optimism and success. "Something You" means find that something to set yourself apart! My Victorian old mine cut diamond and gold brooch is my piece, what's yours?

Additional Policies and FAQs

ALL ABOUT APPRAISALS:

An appraised value is, to put it simply, today's market value to replace that ring. An original heirloom, one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that is 20 years or older cannot be re-created to exactness or with the same craftsmanship. This is why the asking price and appraised value have a range of values, unless it is a newer piece.

There isn't an exact science to getting an exact carat weight of a mounted diamond, therefor sellers of antique and vintage jewelry cannot guarantee diamond weights. Unless a diamond is dismounted (and I never compromise these pieces of art!) there is no true way of knowing the exact carat weight(s). Also, no two appraisals are alike as diamond grading is a collaboration of opinions and there is no one person that is an authority of knowing the exact quality. So what does one do to make sure my clients are beyond taken care of with this issue of finding the truest appraisal? Basically, I get the best appraisals done for my pieces from the most professional and educated appraiser available so I can guarantee my pieces as closely as possible!

There are no appraisers in the industry that price items based on historical and rarity value. It's additionally a very conservative appraisal, unlike others you may see by less experienced appraisers. If you look at competitive online antique jewelers with similar pieces, you can expect prices to be much higher. I am a purveyor, and by hand selecting everything I save my clients the most! I also cater to the online community with a small profit margin to keep my prices low.

As an added bonus, I work with the highest ranked appraiser in the jewelry industry, a master GIA senior board member, independent appraiser that by law has no affiliation with Jewelry Finds LLC, so that it is 100% unbiased and accurate. All appraisals in the industry are estimate values to replace with new diamonds and casting, not geared towards vintage or antique original pieces.

For all pieces sold, Jewelry Finds LLC will be more than happy to give you a FREE certified retail replacement appraisal when you receive the piece for insurance purposes, just ask!
