Lauren B Jewelry, one of the most reputable retailers in the jewelry industry, offers you the opportunity to sell your old diamonds and diamond jewelry at competitive prices in a comfortable, no hassle atmosphere. Having been in business for over 30 years, we are happy to share our extensive knowledge about diamonds and jewelry with you, the public. Because of our experience and centralized location in New York City’s Diamond District, we have accurate knowledge of current gemstone and precious metal valuations and will be able to offer you a fair price for your diamonds and jewelry. We specialize in purchasing both engagement rings and loose diamonds, sizes of one carat and up. As a licensed second hand dealer of New York City, you can be certain that we will be dealing with you in a prompt, honest, and forthright manner.
We invite you to our New York showroom where we can meet you in person and carefully evaluate your estate jewelry and diamonds that you wish to sell. We urge you to bring any appraisal, certificate, or paperwork associated with your piece to make the entire process as transparent as possible. Because selling something as precious as a diamond can be a very delicate matter, Lauren B Jewelry makes sure to deal with each person on a personalized, individual basis. A trained staff member will carefully inspect your diamond or jewelry, and share with you any information and opinions we have regarding your piece. Once this discussion is complete, Lauren B Jewelry will offer you a price that is completely up to the seller’s discretion to accept or reject. Be assured that any meeting with Lauren B Jewelry is no obligation to you, the seller. You will never be pressured to sell and will only do so if you are completely comfortable and satisfied with the service and price you are receiving. Lauren B Jewelry strives to make all transactions as instructive, secure, and mutually beneficial as possible for all parties involved. If for any reason, you are unable to make it to our New York showroom, you can e-mail or call us with a description and/or photograph of your diamond or jewelry and we will be happy to assist you further.
Maintenance can prevent you from losing your precious diamonds and other stones. The cost of caring for your mountings far outweighs the cost of losing a stone. We will examine your jewelry mountings and prongs for any damages that might endanger the stability of your diamonds and gemstones. The position of the prongs exposes them to surface friction and normal wear and tear. Look closely at the top of your prongs to ensure that they are not worn down and smoothed out. Also, run your fingers over the top of the setting and if you don’t feel the little domed roots sticking up then it is time for a re-tipping. If you ignore this, you risk the possibility of your diamonds and other gemstones falling out of the setting. In the event that all the prongs are worn out, it may be time to replace the head (prongs and prong base) for your mounting. At Lauren B Jewelry of New York, we will be able to give you an expert consultation as to what should be done to preserve your mountings.
From time to time, you should bring your gold jewelry in for a polishing to keep up its fresh appearance. Dust, oils, and dirt can get on the surface and in the openings of your jewelry causing it to lose its luster. Our expert polishers can restore your dull jewelry back to its original glimmer and shine.
Our expert jewelers can determine your proper ring size and professionally adjust your ring to the perfect fit. We offer several options and sizing methods to ensure that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for beauty; the result will be seamless. Laser resizing is also available.
We can take your old engagement ring and reset the diamond into a contemporary setting of your choice. You can select from hundreds of settings in various designs from our New York showroom to find the one that suits your taste. You can also provide us with a photograph or sketch of a mounting you have seen elsewhere , and we can work with our skilled jewelers, right in the heart of New York City’s Diamond District, to create one for you.
The chords of pearl necklaces and bracelets are very delicate and can be susceptible to breakage with time and wear. Our pearl experts will be able to prolong the life of your pearls by restringing and inspecting the clasps.
Diamonds and other stones can fall out of settings for any number of reasons. You can bring your damaged piece to our New York jewelry store, and our appointed jeweler can professionally match and replace most any stone in any setting. From diamonds to semi-precious stones, we are able to match the shape and color of the other stones in the jewelry piece to make it look like the first day you ever wore it.Appraisals
