Jewelry expert creates a digital portal that gives sellers options.

Jewelry industry veteran Chris Del Gatto “realized that the public was not being treated well when it came to the reselling of gems,” which motivated him to create an online jewelry buying service called DEL GATTO, writes Business Insider. The article says that jewelry sellers first send a photo via text or email, and the company’s gemologists provide an estimate within 24 hours. From there, the seller can either sell the piece directly to the company at a discount, or she/he can list the piece on the website’s marketplace “where you’re more likely to recoup a higher value on your jewel,” though the company takes a 15 percent commission on the sale.

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.”
