Jewelry Auctions & 2015 Reader’s Choice Voting

May 22nd, 2015 by James L. Sweaney, CGA, FGA. GG


Mardon has placed a rare vintage watch for a client in this upcoming Important Watch Auction held at Sotheby’s New York venue. It’s Lot # 163, page 136 – you can browse the catalog at this URL,

This last year, we’ve added Jewelry Auctions to the list of services available through our extensive network of experts and colleagues. Many of our clients have expensive jewelry items they wish to sell for various reasons– for example, they have an inheritance that needs to be divided, they have pieces no longer worn or they simple want to raise cash. While Mardon buys all types of fine jewelry for cash, sometimes a high end item can only be properly valued thru an active market like auctions.

Auctions can be intimidating, especially to a person with no experience selling thru an auction. Auction houses charge fees for shipping, insurance, publication and promotion, and a commission based on the hammer price. Mardon has connections with such fine auctioneers as Sotheby’s and Christie’s. We can sell your jewelry through the appropriate auction for fees similar to what you would pay if you did all the work of estimating, shipping and insuring yourself. We’ll help you decide if selling your pieces thru an auction is the appropriate choice. No worries, no trips out of town, and you’ll be dealing with a local business established in our community since 1961.

Just a friendly reminder – Voting in the 2015 Reader’s Choice survey ends soon. If you’d like to be counted, it’s easy to do– just click on the red banner on the Mardon Jewelers Home Page,, — it will take you right to the Press Enterprise online ballot. You don’t have to complete all the categories, just the ones you want. It only takes a bit of time and you’ll enjoy giving recognition to the restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues that are important to your life.

So, please, check out the ballot in the Wednesday and Sunday Press Enterprise– look for Best of Inland Empire 2015. Better yet, vote on line at

We hope you’ll send a little love our way –  We work hard to bring you the very best in jewelry and to provide the expert services you need. We depend on your support and patronage to sustain our very small business. Thank you.
