ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Clodius & Co. Jewelers will host a three-day event, October 3-5, 2013 to launch their new Estate Jewelry Department, at which nationally renowned fine jewelry expert, independent jewelry appraiser and broker Patti Geolat and her team from Geolat Companies will be the store’s special guests.
The Geolat team will provide:
- An amazing array of unique items brought in especially for this event: an expansive, sophisticated collection of estate jewelry, including authentic period pieces and signed designer items as well as surprise offerings from world famous designers – all available at remarkable, special value prices.
-An opportunity for consumers to sell previously loved fine jewelry items for more than just the melt value of the metal
-Expert consultation regarding the resale and purchase value of jewelry items
-Advice regarding options for disposition
Geolat, an independent appraiser since 1985, and the co-author of the industry’s most respected appraisal bible, The Professional’s Guide to Jewelry Insurance Appraising, has an international network of buyers with whom she works to broker the sale of pre-owned fine jewelry and timepieces. She is the holder of a distinguished resume, including nine years as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Jewelers Mutual Insurance Co., the industry’s leading insurer. She is an Accredited Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers, a Graduate Gemologist of the Gemological Institute of America, and a Fellow of the Gemological Association of Great Britain.
Clodius & Co. has established themselves as a pre-eminent buyer of jewelry and diamonds. Says Mark Clodius, “Many people find that they no longer want or need previously loved but too precious to melt jewelry they’ve acquired over time. They need to know that they can come to Clodius & Co. Jewelers to be treated fairly and with expertise. Our Estate Department is going to provide our clients with a means of seeing what their formerly loved items can generate for them.” Monika Clodius adds, “Our new Estate Department is a green way for environmentally conscious sellers and buyers to take pressure off Mother Earth. Buyers can find a true piece of art and history in an estate piece while conserving the Earth’s resources at the same time.”
The 3-day Buy, Sell and Trade Estate Event kicks off the grand opening of Clodius & Co.’s Estate Jewelry department.
