As longstanding members of the close-knit jewelry community and millennials who embrace technology and new ways to put it to use, we became enamored with the opportunities associated with making the most exceptional finds from traditional jewelers available online. Not only would we be able to help business owners stay competitive in an increasingly digital world, we could also introduce shoppers everywhere to an incredible assortment of fine jewelry and luxury watches previously inaccessible to them.
In early 2017, we set out to build a single digital shopping destination to showcase the breathtaking design and impeccable craftsmanship of items found in more than 23,000 independent, brick-and-mortar jewelry stores nationwide.
Today, we offer products from more than 50 jewelers, ranging from mom-and-pop shops to the most iconic fine jewelry and watch boutiques. And, regardless of where an item originates, we provide a level of personal service to our shoppers that rivals that of our many esteemed retail partners.
