Working with Carl was probably one of the most straight forward, uncomplicated transactions I've experienced. After leaving a voicemail I received a prompt text and then a call where read more Carl clearly explained the process. I immediately felt confident that I was working with the right buyer to sell my Rolex.

Absolutely seamless sale of a two tone Rolex Submariner. The buy bid was honored, no changing of bid after receiving the watch.

I was a little apprehensive, but after reading all of the reviews, I felt confident, and so should you.
I reached out to Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to sell my husband’s Rolex. Lori was very nice, knowledgeable, & inspired trust. Most importantly to me, there was absolutely no pressure read more to proceed—I felt very comfortable with the pace of the process. Lori gave me an estimated range of what the watch would be worth, subject to adjustment based on their appraisal once their buyer was able to examine it. She provided all details and the Fed Ex labels for shipping the watch—it was not hard and I was fully confident it would go without a snag. Lori called to let me know as soon as the watch arrived. The next day it was appraised by their buyer and Lori called to let me know the adjusted price. They dealt fairly with me, so I accepted and wire transfer was made same day to my bank account. Nicely done, Lori!
Fastest and most honest experience by far. I tried selling my old wedding ring with other jewelry buyers last year but the process was so confusing and extensive I gave up. I found read more these guys and a few other sites online last weekend and decided to give it another shot. Carl and his team purchased my ring, received my shipment and sent the money (which was the highest and only definitive offer out of anyone) to my account all in less than 4 business days. The communication was thorough, timely, and responsive every step of the way.
It was a pleasure working with owner Carl Blackburn. He bought a diamond from me and the process went as smooth as I could have ever imagined. I contacted his company via the website, read more sending him the diamond's specifics. He quickly returned with an offer. He then sent a FedEx Overnight label via email.

I had never sold anything online before, so was a little nervous about selling my Rolex. Based on Yelp reviews, I visited DEJB’s website and was pretty impressed. Worked with Paula read more to text some pics and got an estimate within hours. I got estimates from three other places and DEJB was right in line with two others, but was a touch higher. Based on the great customer service, I went with DEJB. Once I said I was in, Paula got me the prepaid, secure, insured shipping information within hours. Once received, they let me know my Rolex was as described and wired the full amount immediately. What else can I say? Fast, secure, friendly, fair – what more can you ask?
Who Was David Webb?
Born in Asheville, North Carolina in 1925, David Webb was a mostly self-taught designer who learned metal-smithing techniques as an apprentice at his uncle’s silversmith shop. He moved to New York at age 17 and, with wealthy socialite Antionette Quilleret, opened a shop in 1945. A pair of Webb’s earrings was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine in 1950, announcing the young jeweler as a new force in the Manhattan jewelry world.
Seeking inspiration from the animal world, Webb’s jewelry is generally distinguished by striking colors, voluminous dimension, and a fine attention to detail. Designs featuring enamel frogs, crocodiles, zebras, and dragons often mixed carved crystal with diamonds, pearls, and semi-precious stones in colorful counterpoint. Also inspired by the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, Webb’s designs combined modern materials to reinterpret classic themes.
Webb’s work is famously associated with socialites and movie stars, from Lana Turner and Ava Gardner to Princess Grace of Monaco and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Elizabeth Taylor devoted four pages of her photo book, “My Love Affair with Jewelry” to Webb’s designs.
David Webb died of pancreatic cancer in in 1975, but not before leaving an influential legacy, including thousands of sketches. Reproductions of his work continue to be created in the workshop above the Madison Avenue store.
