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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
