Thank you for visiting our site. I'd be delighted to help you in selling your jewelry. We offer a consignment service where you keep the jewelry in your possession and we will list it on our website for no charge. This in no way is an exclusive arrangement with us which allows you to sell the jewelry yourself or elsewhere. In a way it’s a no risk opportunity.
We do ask however is that if you do list the work with us and you sell it elsewhere you let us know. We presently average over 1,000,000 hits monthly on our site so we get a good share of potential buyers that will certainly see your jewelry.
Only when your piece sells through us do we have an 20% charge of the sale price. We will notify you of all offers.
To get started and your artwork available to our client base and on-line and you simply need to let us know what your net asking price (what you want me to write you a check for) is for your jewelry, the artist name, title, number associated with and an image of your jewelry, and away we go. In addition a phone number is very, very useful in case our emails to you bounce and we have a client interested in your jewelry.
I will only list artwork on-line once a net asking price is provided. When your jewelry sells you will need to ship it to our location, as we need to verify the jewelries authenticity and condition, so please include your shipping costs in your net asking price.
Every client has different motivations for selling and as such we don't offer pricing on the pieces consignees sell. It is always our goal to get out at least what a client has into a piece however that isn't always possible. You might consider looking at the Completed Items section of eBay to see what prices pieces are selling at. You might also consider doing a Google/Yahoo search for the artist and title with both in quotes. Should you want a formal appraisal to help you please view the information at www.herndonfineart.com/nia_appraisal_services.htm..
PLEASE NOTE: I WILL NOT sell artwork that isn't in a condition I would accept into my own collection. We will ONLY sell or buy jewelry which is in great condition with no scratches, dents, etc.
Regarding payment once the piece is sold - for over 30 years we've pretty much used the same procedure. Checks are cut after the jewelry is received and verified as being authenticate and in great condition.
Jewelry which is not in great condition will need to be restored prior to shipping to us or our restorers can make the necessary repairs. Failure to have the jewelry restored to excellent condition will result in us returning the jewelry to you at your expense. In addition we will charge any cost accrued to us for the initial shipment to us. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
Should a piece require restoration I will immediately email you photos for your consultation.
Should you agree to have the piece restored it is shipped to our curator
in LA for an estimate of costs. Once that number comes in I'll pass this
information on to you for your approval. Should you agree restoration will
begin, not the piece is returned to me and I get a credit card number from
you to return the jewelry to you. Once restoration is completed and the
jewelry returned to me I cut a check to the curator, run the credit card of
the buyer and cut a check to you minus the costs which are itemized on your
