“HONEST, FAIR, PROFESSIONAL I sold my recently deceased Mothers’ Diamond Ring. They were kind and understanding and I was very pleased and at peace with my decision to sell to Empire..”
“My boyfriend and I picked out a ring together from your ebay store after much research. It appraised for much more than the purchase price and BOTH independent appraisers agreed with exactly how the ring was presented in the description. We got exactly what we expected and then some. The ring is beyond amazing. It’s beautiful and sparkly and gets noticed. Best of all, we got a beautiful 1.47 brilliant center stone for half what we would have paid in a jewelry store. In fact, our friend spent almost 11,000 in a jewelry store for a ring of this size — we spent less than half that!
