SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The RealReal, the leader in authenticated luxury consignment, today announced the opening of a new valuation office in New York City that allows consumers to get free valuations of their fine jewelry and watches. The RealReal's team of graduate gemologists and watch experts will assess and value clients' items free of charge and provide them with a valuation document on the spot.
The new concept aligns with The RealReal's mission of offering its members a high-touch, personalized service across all categories, and addresses the gap in the market today for a reliable place to get accurate fine jewelry and watch valuations. The office, located in Midtown Manhattan, will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9am - 5pm and Thursdays from 9am - 7pm. Appointments can be made by calling 917-551-6523 or emailing email@example.com.
The RealReal's fine jewelry and watch category has become its fastest growing category. The company attributes the fast growth and success to its focus on authentication and transparency in pricing, a rarity in the market today. The RealReal's objective is to get maximum value for its consignors, evident through comparison research showing that consignors earn twice as much consigning their fine jewelry and watches with The RealReal than they do with any other reseller in the market.
"We're proud to now offer a free valuation service that you truly can't get anywhere else," said Senior Director of Fine Jewelry and Watches Michael Groffenberger. "Often, jewelry sellers treat pricing like a trade secret. What we're doing is sharing this information transparently so consumers know how much their fine jewelry and watches are truly worth. Even with four million members and growing, it remains extremely important for us to reach our clients on a personal level, which is why we're so thrilled to be able to offer this new in-person service."
