This isn't a typical jewelry store. They not only offer what you would expect from a jeweler in the sense of the word but their specialty is purchasing Estate jewelry and reselling it. You will find some of the most exquisite pieces of jewelry ever when you walk through their doors.
Each Estate piece purchased is reviewed by their own specialty jewelers, cleaned and checked for loose stones, etc. Once they feel comfortable selling the item, they will place it in their showcase. The great part about this place is that you not only see some wonderful, very different works of art from the jewelry world but it constantly changes. You can walk in one day and find an item, only to walk in 2 days or a month later and find that item has been sold but replaced by something even more beautiful!
If you're tired of the same old stuff, copies of everyone else's jewelry, but don't have the money to necessarily put out for your own designed versions this is the place to go! You can develop a wonderful repoire with the sales staff and even ask them to watch for certain items that you've been wanting for a while or certain styles.
Also well versed in coins and collectibles, they offer a wide array of special items of interest in that area too.
Simply put, Dempsey & Baxter's is so much more than a jewelry store.
