With this collaboration, TrueFacet will gain access to the Silvers’ network of Silicon Valley clientele and international collectors, while Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry can effectively scale its fine jewelry, estate jewelry and rare collectible timepiece offerings while harnessing TrueFacet’s digital reach and consumer insights.

TrueFacet Co-Founder Tirath Kamdar stated: “Silicon Valley is TrueFacet’s third-largest market, and we saw the potential for even more growth by partnering with the demonstrated leader in offline shopping experiences in the area, Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry. We see our partnership as a merger between the physical and the digital space. It’s something we are very excited about, that has never been attempted in this industry. There is a real synergy between our companies, with Stephen Silver’s expertise in rare estate pieces, and our leadership in the Certified Pre-Owned category, offering thousands of products unavailable anywhere else.”

Since its founding in 2014, TrueFacet.com has crowdsourced much of its pre-owned watch and fine jewelry inventory through customer trade-ins, consignments and customer sales, growing its marketplace inventory to over 140,000 items. Each item is authenticated and refurbished in-house or directly by brands through TrueFacet’s groundbreaking Brand Certified Pre-Owned program, launched in August of 2018.

TrueFacet has relationships with Brand Certified Pre-Owned partners like Zenith, FENDI Timepieces, Faberge and Roberto Coin. The digital marketplace has also recently partnered with Messika to power a branded U.S. e-commerce site for the international jewelry brand.

Stephen and Jared Silver, a father and son team, have earned a reputation among Silicon Valley’s VC community as early adopters of new technology. Where other jewelry and watch retailers have seen e-commerce marketplaces as competition, the Silvers saw an opportunity to invest in TrueFacet, a data-driven, tech-forward digital marketplace, and eventually took on an advisory role with TrueFacet.

Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry President Jared Silver saw an opportunity to expand the relationship with TrueFacet as luxury retail partners.

“TrueFacet makes an ideal digital partner because the company’s high-touch service and impressive global reach complement our own strengths,” he said, “and through this partnership, we will also gain access to TrueFacet’s wide selection of certified pre-owned inventory.”

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.”
