E-tailer now has jewelry appraisal locations in four major cities.

Online retailer The RealReal will open a new jewelry and timepiece appraisal office in San Francisco, its fourth such location, the Fashion Times reports. The article notes that jewelry is among the fastest-growing categories for the e-tailer, which opened appraisal offices in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago in the past year. The RealReal – which scored $40 million from a venture capital firm last year – lets clients bring in jewelry and timepieces to be evaluated by gemologists and watch experts, who then draw up valuation documents that are posted on the site. Consignors earn 60-70 percent of the selling price.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
