About UsAn Old Brooch That Changed My Life.....
One spring day in the year 2005, I was working in an estate jewelry store when a dear elderly couple came in. They asked to have a few family heirloom pieces appraised. I scurried to write up the ticket for the appraisal and looked at each piece meticulously. It was an amazing discovery of jewels for me. As we poured over each of their treasures, I shared every ounce of wisdom I had about each one.
We visited for what seemed like forever, sharing much about our lives and weaving a tapestry of what later turned out to be a very significant relationship.
During this visit, I 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! After the appraiser looked at their pieces and they were ready for pick up, I gave them a call and let them know that their valuables were ready for them.
What happened next, changed the course of my life. When they came into the jewelry store, they immediately took the brooch from the bag of jewelry they had appraised. The woman placed it in my hand. She then looked me in the eye and said "because you were so kind and courteous, I want you to have this as a "Thank you". I cried. The couple cried. We all cried. It was one of the most touching moments of my entire life. They asked me to have that piece because they saw that undeniable passion in my eyes. To this day, that pin has more meaning to me than anything I've ever owned.
Since April 13, 2013, it has been my desire to provide pre-loved quality fine jewelry so that you may have the opportunity to find that one of a kind dream piece every single day!
I truly do believe the exchange of the brooch was a defining moment for my passion and my career! Rarely a day passes without being reminded to treat others how you want to be treated and to always keep an open mind and an open heart! That brooch stands as my company's logo today and I carry it wherever I go. I hope everyone who visits my shop will one day find that extraordinary piece that makes a dream become reality for you.
"Something Old" stands for continuity and tradition. "Something New" represents optimism and success. "Something You" is a reflection and a piece of who you are, and what you find valuable.
My Victorian old mine cut diamond and gold brooch was my Jewelry Fate! What's yours?

*****ALL ABOUT APPRAISALS & IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION*****
- An appraised value is, to put it simply, today's market value to replace that piece. An original heirloom, one-of-a-kind piece of art that is 20 years or older cannot be re-created to exactness or with the same craftsmanship, stones, or workmanship. This is why the asking price and appraised value have a range of values. Jewelry Finds® will type up your FREE guaranteed and certified appraisal upon completion of sale, just ask!
- All of Jewelry Finds® pieces have been professionally inspected and appraised by at least 2-3 professionals in the gemological field including a Certified Master Appraiser Independent Graduate Gemologist with the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers (NAJA), an Independent Graduate Gemologist Appraiser with the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers, and myself. The NAJA has the top appraisers as members in the nation with proven track records. I'm so grateful to have two live right near me!
All diamond and gemstone grading are done under the strictest GIA standards and as accurate as the mounting permits. All precious metals are tested and guaranteed as an entire piece (not just the shank or clasp). I guarantee all my pieces to their independent non-affiliated appraisals I pay for myself to ensure my listings are 100% authentic and true! I truly understand these are important and special online purchases so sit back, relax, and shop!
- Please have your piece evaluated by an NAJA member Independent Graduate Gemologist Appraiser to confirm your purchase or to get peace of mind after the sale. Please visit 'The National Association Of Jewelry Appraisers' main website to find one closest in your area:
- A brick and mortar jeweler, your friend's jeweler, or any jeweler's opinion/verbal appraisal does not count as an independent appraisal in the gemological field. You must go to an independent graduate gemologist appraiser that doesn't work in a jewelry store yourself to get a 100% unbiased professional appraisal.
- I only want the best for my clients! I personally pay to have each and every piece I sell appraised by an unbiased and completely independent graduate gemologist NAJA member (National Association Of Jewelry Appraisers) so my listings are 100% accurate and guaranteed! NAJA appraisers are the highest ranked in the nation. I will be more than happy to type up a FREE retail replacement appraisal in your name upon completion of sale, just ask!
- Jewelry Finds® is not licensed to buy from the public, buy back or take pieces back on consignment. If you haven't already, please ask for your FREE insurance appraisal :)!

If you are considering making a purchase from Ashley, please have no fear! These are of amazing quality and transcend the term "jewelry" to the realm of art. I could go on and on, but I will leave it with a simple thank you to Ashley. Thank you for being a part of the start of our new family."
