SAN DIEGO, CA, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Carl Blackburn has announced the sale of his former business San Diego Jewelry Buyers (SDJB). As owner of SDJB from 2008-2013, Blackburn developed the company into one of Southern California's largest and most recognized buyers of portable luxury assets, including gold jewelry, diamonds, designer watches, and sterling silver.
Carl Blackburn sold the successful company in order to establish a new estate buying firm Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. The new business is headquartered in La Jolla, CA and serves clients nationwide. "At SDJB we bought all types of gold, silver and diamond jewelry from the public. However, my new company deals exclusively with clients who want to sell higher-end jewelry items worth over $5000, such as diamond engagement rings from Tiffany and Cartier; prestige timepieces from Patek Philippe and Rolex; and fine antique and estate jewelry pieces," says Blackburn.
Recognized for his work as a consumer advocate, Carl Blackburn was interviewed in 2009 by KUSI TV News, as part of an investigate report on how to sell gold jewelry for cash. At the time of the report, San Diego Jewelry Buyers was the only dedicated jewelry buyer in the San Diego area to have earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau--a top rating it maintained the entire time the company was under Blackburn's stewardship.
The special San Diego gold buyers report was conducted by Emmy award winning reporter Sasha Foo and titled "Selling your gold? Don't get scammed!" Ms. Foo warns viewers that while legitimate gold jewelry buyers do exist, some San Diego gold buyers are not so "straight up." She then talks with Sheryl Bilbry of the Better Business Bureau about the many complaints filed against a well-known cash for gold company, which at the time of the report had a D- rating with the BBB, and later filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
In contrast, Carl Blackburn is presented by Sasha Foo as one of San Diego's legitimate and established gold buyers. A jewelry industry veteran for over 25 years, Blackburn is both an internationally-recognized jewelry designer, as well as one of the country's most recognized luxury estate buyers. He tells San Diego gold sellers that the selling process should simple and straightforward:
"When you are calling on the phone trying to get a per gram price for the day that you are coming in, if the person on the other line doesn't want to give information, that should be a red flag... Don't be bullied. Transactions should be comfortable."
