JewelSmiths is a really 1st class Oklahoma business who makes and sells jewelry, but we went there to sell a bunch of pieces of jewelry. When our Grandfather passed away we learned he didn't have any final expense insurance ( he hated insurance salesmen ). But when he died of a heart attack the 20th of December of 2011 everyone was really broke. We didn't know what to do. I was preying for a solution and this is what i came up with. What we did is we sent an email to everyone in the family plus a few of his friends and we asked for everyone to look around their stuff for old, broken, or otherwise unwanted pieces of jewelry they may have and don't or haven't used for years. Everyone had 1 day to find what they can and drop it off at the house, what we didn't count on was other people telling other people combined with an extraordinary generosity. We got allot more collected that we'd imagined we would. After being turned away or low-balled by a few places, we found JewelSmiths who took the time to look at each piece and gave us an itemized offer of 10,776.00. For the first few seconds I didn't look at the broker and I didn't speak, I didn't want to blow it ;) but then I said We'll take it, I got the money, had a wonderful service for my grandfather and we even had a little money left over that went into a really nice headstone. So it's fair to say JewelSmiths really made a bad situation allot less overwhelming. Much Thanks.
