about us

As a third-generation family owned and operated business, our goal is exactly that - to make YOU feel at home. It's because of our valued customers that we have successfully been in business for nearly 50 years! We strive to be your personal jeweler.

National Estate Jewelers is one of the area's largest jewelry, coin, diamond and watch buyers, with private offices and a team of GIA Graduate Gemologists, Numismatists, and trained jewelry professionals ready to evaluate your items with our no pressure offer system.

Our one-on-one private consultation evaluations provide the safety, security, and confidentiality our clients deserve.
You won't have to worry about getting an unfair price when you visit our shop. We'll give you a fair offer on your pieces, so you can make the final call.

We want YOU to feel comfortable with YOUR jewelry needs. Whether you have one ring or an entire estate you are considering selling, the decision to sell is YOURS. When we look at your items, we make you an offer. We never ask how much you want; it is unethical to ask!
