“When buying for friends and family, I look for items that are not over the top but also not run-of-the-mill. While I love current jewelry, I really look for age. An incredible amount of work went into antique and vintage pieces, which would have been made totally different today. When it comes to purchases like the Sapphire ring, or anything for that matter, I like to remind people to use their resources. Our team is here to answer questions and help you find something unique or of good value.” – Alex Eblen, Important Jewelry and Fine Timepieces Specialist
