About

I've always been drawn to bright and shiny objects.

• As a kid, I combed creek beds for teeny bits of quartz, scavenged silvery drops of solder from my father's workshop floor, and rummaged through my mother's tin of buttons in the hopes of finding "pearls" and "crystals." Later, I sought out special jewelry pieces at estate sales and acquired many that were handed down from friends and family. I started Encore Jewelry and Gems with an appreciation for the craftsmanship and materials that go into such beautiful vintage pieces.
• My partner, Kelly, is in charge of the wholesale side of our business. Kelly grew up in a family of antique, silver, and jewelry dealers, and has collected treasures since childhood. Kelly is an award-winning jewelry designer and expert in precious metals and gemstones, and does an amazing job finding, assessing, and curating quality vintage pieces.
• Currently, I am working toward my GIA Certification. Meanwhile, I have Kelly and some of the finest gemologists, jewelers, and antique dealers in the St. Louis region on my side! Thanks to all of you, who are making my bright and shiny dream possible.
• Whatever your budget, you deserve bright and shiny things that thrill you! That's why we have dedicated ourselves to providing fine vintage pieces at great values. We don't mark up our prices to support a fancy brick and mortar store...this is it! Please support us in our efforts to keep the deals coming by favoriting our shop, and all the items that appeal to you.

DO YOU RESIZE RINGS?
If you've got your eye on a ring that would need to be resized to fit you, just let us know. We are always happy to provide this service on any ring that can be safely resized. Most gold rings and some (but not all) silver rings can be taken up or down a few sizes for a reasonable fee, within a week of purchase date. We'll do our best to make it work and get that ring on your finger ASAP!

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE CONDITION?
We seek the best quality pre-owned jewelry there is! Unless noted otherwise, items are well cleaned, sanitized, and lightly polished. "Condition" is an assessment of wear that has effected the appearance or functionality on a finished manufactured item or natural object. We are upfront about flaws or damage in our listings, and point them out in close-up photos when possible. Our statements of Condition are graded as follows:
EXCELLENT - Little or no obvious signs of wear for a vintage piece
VERY GOOD - Vintage quality, with minor scratches, dings, or wear appropriate for its age; many are not readily visible
GOOD - Clearly vintage; with some visible dings, dents, scratches and/or wear that is acceptable for the item's age
FAIR - Very rarely, we will post an item that has obvious wear or damage, yet we feel its rarity or distinctive quality still makes the piece desirable
Please ask if you have any questions!

DO YOU OFFER LAYAWAY?
We provide free layaway on most items over $100! You can break up your payments over several months. For example, a $600 item on 3-month layaway would have 3 payments of $200 each. If you've "gotta have it" we will help you make that possible. Just let us know and we'll set it all up.

CAN YOU SHOW A PICTURE OF THE ITEM BEING WORN?
Yes! We are happy to take some additional photos for you. The pieces will not always fit us perfectly, but the extra photos will help you visualize how the jewelry will look on you. (Fabulous, no doubt!)
