For nearly 100 years, we have prided ourselves in being the most experienced and most trusted diamond and estate jewelry buyer in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Virginia, and Maryland areas. Key to that is our full-service approach. Our in-house experts include gemologists, experienced jewelers, and certified diamond buyers. We have been an appointment-only family-owned business for a long time, where our clients come first. Now, in these unprecedented times, we have elevated the experience to being contact-free, appointment-only, to guarantee the safety of our clients and our staff.
You might be wondering what that means exactly – after all, any sort of person-to-person interaction can’t be entirely contact-free. And you would be correct. What we have done however, is install new plexiglass screens in all of our consultation spaces. We have a small opening for our customers to share their valued pieces, whether it is jewelry, coins, watches, silverware, or other pieces of estimation. This way, we can speak face-to-face, with the security of having a clear wall between us for the benefit of both parties’ safety.
At any given time, there are at most five staff members throughout the entire office. We have the benefit of being in an office building, rather than a store front, which makes it easier for us to prioritize one client a time without the worry of any walk-ins. It also makes it easier for us to sanitize and disinfect our spaces. Rather than having a large, open store, we have dedicated consultation spaces that enable us to prioritize the safety and health of our guests.
Not only that, but we have taken it a step further. We believe in going the extra mile to ensure our clients are treated with the utmost respect and care. Where we might have had several one-on-one consultations taking place simultaneously, we have changed our appointment model to one client at a time. This way, we can make sure we thoroughly clean before and after each client to maximize the safety of both our staff and our guests. We are committed to providing a safe, sanitary environment for everyone during these uncertain times.
When you meet with us for your one-on-one consultation, you’ll have our full attention. We might be wearing masks and gloves for your safety and ours, but you will still get the same expert experience that we are known for. During the evaluation of your valuables, our certified buyer will explain what he or she is looking for. We will walk you through the process of assessing and evaluating your item and are happy to answer any questions you might have. Once the evaluation is complete of your valued items, we will make an offer on the spot. If you so choose, you can walk out with your cash in hand right then and there.
Right now, we are living through unprecedented times where safety is paramount. Fortunately, Samuelson’s Buyers has always prioritized one-on-one consultations, making it easy for us to easily enhance that experience. In addition to our standard of service that we have become known for after nearly a century, you can also expect a standard of safety that puts your health and well-being first. Call us at (301) 804-2709 today to schedule your contact-free, one-on-one consultation.
