OUR STORY

 

Hello! My name is Jared and I am the co-founder and CEO of JEWEL SWAP.

I am a fourth-generation jeweler with a family tradition built on the jewelry business in which we have been a part of for more than 100 years. 

Myself and my family have manufactured and sold jewelry to some of the largest retailers, designers, and diamond dealers in the world. With that experience, I have also noticed (and grown sick of) the insane markups on diamonds & other fine jewelry — markups that regularly reach well over 100%. 

Throughout my career I have made many close friends and family the engagement rings of their dreams at a fraction of the retail cost by cutting out the retail channel and dealing directly with the customer, then going directly to the diamond dealer.

Each time, I think to myself, “This dealer definitely paid half price for this diamond from a person looking to sell their personal diamond and didn’t know any better its true value.”  

After venting these frustrations to family and my lifelong friend Ryan, there was no other option. Something had to be done. 

That's when myself and Ryan, the other co-founder of JEWEL SWAP, took action.

We developed a no-brainer idea that focused on helping everyday people while disrupting the greedy jewelry industry. 

We wanted to find a way to get maximum value from all jewelry, including diamonds, across a trusted network backed by jewelry professionals with decades of accreditation. 

Then, JEWEL SWAP was born.

Ryan and myself realize this not just a problem with diamonds; this is a problem with all jewelry. The more a piece costs, the worse the markup gets. 

JEWEL SWAP is here to fix exactly that.

We've cut out the middlemen. We've eliminated the insane markup that goes with them. And we are on a mission to offer high-quality jewelry at the best possible price, as well as a trusted way for people to sell jewelry they no longer want or need.

Everything we do at JEWEL SWAP is backed by our family name and reputation, fully insured from start to finish, and most of all, meant to make life easier for people like you — whether you're a buyer, a seller, or both.

At JEWEL SWAP, you can trust your jewelry's value, your money's safety, and the community in which this innovative jewelry-sales site thrives. We're here for you.
