Estate Jewelry!

At PREMIER DIAMOND,we buy and sell Estate and Antique Jewelry! Beautiful and often rare, Estate and antique jewelry provides one of the greatest values in jewelry today. Often with gold content far beyond what could be included at today’s inflated gold prices, estate jewelry rings, necklaces and other fine pieces are a great buy... and a one-of-a-kind find! If you are in the market to sell a piece of fine gold, silver or diamond jewelry, we will offer the highest price... because we won’t melt down your jewelry for scrap. We’ll place it in our Estate Jewelry case to excite and please one of our customers with a newfound “treasure”. If your gold, silver or diamond jewelry is broken or not of Estate quality, bring it in anyway. We will still offer you the highest spot price because we want your business and because we buy more, we can take a lower percent profit on the volume of gold and diamonds we buy. Whether you are in the market to buy or sell Estate or Antique Jewelry, come to Battle Creek’s jeweler, PREMIER DIAMOND!

We Also Buy Gold and Vintage/Antique Jewelry! I-94 at exit 97 • 5225 Beckley Road, Battle Creek • M-F 10-6, Sat.10-5 (269) 979-2431 www.premier-diamond.com


Craftsmanship and Technology! On-site Jewelry/Watch Repair at PREMIER DIAMOND. Whether it’s a new battery for your watch, a clasp for a favorite necklace, the replacement of a link in a gold chain or any repair, we can fix it! Led by craftsman John Nelson, we repair jewelry and watches on-site. Stop by for a good faith estimate of your repair. We’ll fix your watch or jewelry as good or better than new, quickly and professionally. PREMIER DIAMOND, your hometown jeweler since 1989.
