Gold & Estate Buying

The 1916 Company has been purchasing fine jewelry and timepieces from private collections for generations, and recognizes that the process can be both exciting, and at times, quite emotional. Our experienced staff is on hand to evaluate your pieces, and we will offer you the highest possible return for your items, while maintaining the strictest standards of confidentiality and expert counsel. We regularly purchase a wide range of items from private collections, from significant diamond heirlooms, to timepieces (working or not), unique coins and unwanted gold, and we are prepared to answer any questions you may have regarding the process.

Over generations, we have developed a deep understanding of the pre-owned watch market, and are actively looking to buy select styles from a number of fine watch brands.

The 1916 Company does not charge clients for the Estate Buying evaluation process; and upon presentation of an offer to buy your watch, jewelry, or unwanted gold, you are under no obligation to sell to us. To schedule an appointment or discuss the Estate Buying process in more detail, please schedule an appointment or contact a client advisor from The 1916 Company.

Custom Jewelry Design

The 1916 Company has a 100-year history of craftsmanship, excellence and artistry, which we wish to share with you through our custom jewelry design services. We proudly employ a team of experienced and technically trained jewelers who work in an on-site jewelry shop, and look forward to collaborating with you to bring your jewelry dreams to life.

The custom design process begins with your imagination. Perhaps you have seen a piece of jewelry in your travels that you wish to recreate, or you have something that has been sitting in your jewelry box for years that you wish to modify, or maybe you simply have a great eye for design. Following a one-on-one consultation with our in-house jeweler, we will provide you with sketches of your unique jewelry design, which can then be modified to your specifications. Your design is then carefully executed, just as you envisioned!

The 1916 Company would be delighted to assist you in creating a truly special and distinctive piece of jewelry. To request additional information about the custom jewelry design process, please visit our boutiques page and contact our experienced jewelry experts.

Bridal Consultation

The 1916 Company is with you every step of the way when selecting the perfect, sparkling diamond engagement ring, wedding band, or anniversary band for your bride-to-be or better half. We offer unparalleled personal service, and invite you to work with one of our experienced sales consultants, bench jewelers or GIA certified gemologists so that you can make the most educated decision when it comes to this significant purchase for the person you love.
