Jewel in a Box is definitely not your everyday shop. It is more of a concept than anything else. Jewel in a Box is the ideal broker – trading between you, the buyer and another private customer, the seller. Jewel in a Box creates a real value on quality jewellery and watches instead of selling an illusion.
Jewel in a Box distinguishes itself from other second-hand jewellery shops by issuing a certificate for all your purchases. The certificate guarantees the authenticity and origin of the watch or jewellery – but most importantly, it guarantees the price.
We take our appraisals very seriously, which is why for security reasons, you are asked to leave your jewelry with us for a period of 3 working days in order to allow us to perform this task carefully.
Being a professional broker and acting as the middleman between the buyer and the seller, we have to be objective to satisfy both customers. Each prospective seller is offered a price that is lower than the original retail price but still higher than the price any jeweler would offer. If the seller agrees on the proposed price, a showcase can be rented for a minimum of 2 months to have the jewelry displayed for sale.
Jewel in a Box is located on the Schuttershofstraat, the most prestigious shopping street of Antwerp. We have almost 500 boxes for rent, giving you the opportunity to appreciate each and every jewel.
Our variety ranges in price, quality and style – from contemporary design pieces to antiques. Two different prices shown in each box – one for the Actual Sales Price (Jewel in a Box price) and the Estimated Retail Price. The sales price includes our commission.
Since we act as a broker between two private customers, every transaction is exempted from the 21% Value-Added Tax (VAT). This works as a great advantage for both parties.
The pieces we have on offer can be found via our online shop. Due to our unique concept, if you wait too long, the piece may no longer be in stock. If the item of your choice is available, we can reserve it for you for a period of 2 days.
If you are interested in any of the items we have online, feel free to contact us by e-mail, fax or phone. You can always rely upon us for great customer service.
