About Us

At Joint Venture Estate Jewelers, we specialize in the consignment of fine antique, vintage, and modern estate jewelry as well as pre-owned, high-end watches such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Cartier, Omega and many other fine brands.  Because our inventory is on consignment, Joint Venture Estate Jewelers offers two unique benefits to our customers.  First, we have a diverse array of jewelry from across the country, and second, we provide exceptional value because, unlike traditional jewelry stores, we do not own our inventory.      

Joint Venture Estate Jewelers, established in 1990, started as a Mom, Pop and daughter business and has grown to include a son-in-law and a wonderful, knowledgeable, long-time staff.  The concept of Joint Venture Estate Jewelers is to provide a safe and reliable business for people to partner with in retailing their jewelry when they decide they want to part with it.  Before the opening of Joint Venture Estate Jewelry, there was no venue for people to sell their jewelry other than the extremes of a pawn shop or an auction house such as Sotheby's or Christie's.  

At any given time we have thousands of active consignors from all across the United States, each having anywhere from one piece of jewelry to hundreds of pieces on consignment with us.  Some consignors are private individuals, some are estate dealers and some are manufacturers of fine jewelry.  If you are interested in consigning jewelry or watches with us, we are always accepting new items for consignment.  Please call us at 843-722-6730 for details on the consignment process. 

Joint Venture Estate Jewelers has a jewelry designer and a goldsmith on staff that can help you turn any old or broken jewelry into something new and fabulous.  If you are looking through your jewelry box and see unmatched earrings and dated pieces that you never wear, contact us for a consultation to see what new treasures you can create.
Joint Venture Estate Jewelers is a full service jewelry store.  Our staff provides the following services:

  • Appraisals & gem identification by a GIA Graduate Gemologist 
  • Jewelry design  
  • Pearl & bead stringing 
  • Watch batteries & bands while you wait 
  • Watch repair & restoration, including high-end brands

Payment Options: We gladly accept all major credit cards, personal checks, wire transfers and money orders.  We also make available to our customers a very liberal layaway plan.  Since our inventory consists of many one-of-a-kind pieces we suggest the use of our layaway plan to secure the one-of-a-kind piece of your dreams.
