We Pay More
And we pay today, unlike auction houses or consignments, which can take months. Auction items and consignments generally have low reserves to ensure they sell. And because reserves are set based on current fashion and not appraised value, auction pieces have been known to sell for even less than their intrinsic (metal) value.
We’ll Buy Your Entire Group
We will always make an offer on your entire lot. Not only do we pay premium prices for quality pieces, we also purchase everyday pieces, precious metals, stones, sterling, gold filled and costume jewelry, so you can dispose of a client’s entire jewelry estate in one clean and simple transaction.
No Hidden Fees
If your piece doesn’t sell at auction, you’ll pay a fee to get it back. If it does sell, you’ll pay the auctioneer’s commission. At FJL, we pay more than what you’d get at auction, and we don’t charge any fees, including insurance fees, photo fees and buy back fees that are common with other estate and fine jewelry buyers.
One Stop Shopping
We work with a diverse network of buyers all over the world–and we don’t wait for them to come to us. That international exposure means we can offer you better prices on a wider variety of pieces. And because we have so many quality contacts in the industry, we can also assist you with paintings, furniture, art, and other estate objét d’art.
With FJL, you get a quick and tidy transaction, with no potential for loss. Auction houses can lose items, and will then pay only the lowest estimate value, less all fees. Or, a buyer at auction may take possession of an item but refuse to pay, in which case the consigner, not the auction house,
