Our Expertise

At the Jewelers Circle, we celebrate the beauty of the past and the brilliance of the present. We are committed to providing our customers with the finest heritage and rarity collections, paired with the highest level of expertise and service. Our experts, who have inherited a passion for vintage jewelry, are dedicated to sharing their extensive knowledge and expertise with our valued clients.

We understand that purchasing a piece of jewelry is an investment, which is why we have partnered with the prestigious International Antique Jewelers Association (IAJA), a testimony to our commitment to excellence. It ensures that every piece we sell is carefully examined and vetted by a team of experts, consisting of former curators, archivists, and directors from the world's foremost jewelry brands.

The expertise of the IAJA is based on a deep understanding of the history and evolution of jewelry design and craftsmanship. Members of the IAJA have years of experience and specialized knowledge in areas such as gemology, jewelry design, and above all antique jewelry.

Authentication Process

At the Jewelers Circle, we take the verification and authentication of our pieces very seriously. Our commitment to excellence and attention to detail is evident at every step of the process. Our goal is to make sure that our customers receive a piece that is authentic, unique, and imbued with the history and artistry of generations.

Once a purchase is made, the piece is carefully sent to our offices for a double verification and authentication. Our team checks every aspect of the piece, ensuring that it meets our exacting standards of conformity in terms of description and period. Then, we entrust the piece to our esteemed IAJA experts, who are the backbone of our verification and authentication process. They carefully examine each piece that we sell, using their vast experience and meticulous attention to detail to ensure its authenticity and conformity with the product description of the dealer.

The IAJA Expertise is more than just a stamp of approval, it is a testimony of its unicity and authenticity. The assessment is based on scrupulous research and careful examination, ensuring that every piece we sell meets our high standards. Only after this comprehensive process is complete, will we send the piece to its new owner.

Our partnership with the IAJA allows us to offer a unique service to our customers. For every piece purchased from The Jewelers Circle, if the piece is deemed to be authentic and conforms to its description, we take pride in offering a unique IAJA Expertise Letter created by one of  the esteemed IAJA experts. This document provides valuable information including a gross weight and description, as well as a verification of any maker’s mark, signatures, data range and era, country of origin, named designer and provenance. If you desire, we can also help arrange for a more detailed/formal letter (all the letters–basic and formal–are signed).
