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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
