Estate Diamond Jewelry

Estate diamond jewelry is the bread and butter upon which Raymond Lee Jewelers thrived for decades. We’ve added so many treasures to our vault and showcases, and expanded in the very best ways, but nothing quickens our heartbeat like gorgeous estate diamond jewelry.

What, exactly, is estate jewelry? It’s pre-owned. That’s really the only requisite. It got its name from estate sales, often a high-profile auction held to sell the treasures of an heiress to the general public (who can afford it.) But it’s evolved to also include jewelry not snagged at Christie’s due to death or divorce.

Most of our estate jewelry comes from longtime clientele who like to keep their jewelry collection fresh. They do so by trading and selling older pieces, those they just don’t love that much, or older models for newer styles (think Rolexes and Cartier Love bracelets.)

And, of course, a ton of our most precious estate pieces are vintage and antique. And when it comes to diamonds, buying estate is a wonderful option for both your wallet and the planet.

But enough chit-chat. Why tell you how wonderful our diamond estate jewelry is when we can just show you?
