Fine gems and jewels with history are our passion. We are a family owned small business dedicated to giving the Austin area an excellent experience whether you are selling estate pieces or shopping for that one of a kind vintage engagement ring.
Our owners, Jack and Caroline, are experts in jewelry history and gemology. Jack has been in the business over 15 years. He developed a love for jewelry and gemstones from a very young age due to his parents' work in the local flea market every weekend. He attended the Gemological Institute of America at 20 years old and has been expanding his knowledge every day ever since. Jack has become a leading specialist in sapphires and rubies with his personal favorites hailing from Yogo Gulch, Kashmir, and Mogok.
Caroline Quillinan has been in the business for five years and is particularly passionate about jewelry history and antique stones. Her favorite designers are Louis Comfort Tiffany, René Lalique, and early 20th century Cartier.
We started Austin Jewelry & Diamond Buyers to give the people of Austin a better option when it comes to buying and selling fine jewelry. It is extremely important to us that everyone we do business knows that their trust in us is cherished. Honesty, integrity, and knowledge are paramount in the way we do business.
