A few not-to-well hidden "Secrets" of the jewelry trade:
1) We want to sell jewelry! We often have clients submit a private "Offer" via our Contact Page. Sometimes it's "Close Enough" and we close the deal. So, yes. All jewelers will accept "Offers" on their jewelry items.
2) We want you to be pleased with your purchase so that you'll come back, and that you'll tell your friends. If we can make our clients happy by negotiating a few percent here or a few percent there, of course we will. All jewelers will do that.
3) We don't make astronomical profits on our items. Tales of 500% and 1000% profits are just that. Tales. To stay in business we have to be competitive. Our prices are market driven by, among other things, the price of precious metals and the price of semi-precious and precious gems. Just as you wouldn't expect to go into a bank and buy $100 Dollar Bills for $80 Dollars, neither should you expect to buy gold at below the current spot price. The same for silver, platinum, diamonds, and so on. Still, we believe we have some of the most competitive prices around and because we deal in the secondary market of Estate, Vintage, and Antique items, our margins are lower, often much lower, than our "New Retail" counterparts.
So, if you have an offer, certainly let us know.
