I recently sold my wedding band set and after a quick google search of the many diamond brokers in NYC, I reached out to five, plus the store in Upstate where the set was originally purchased. Wedding/Engagement rings are not only very valuable, but emotionally tied to you, so it can be very difficult to know what you are getting is fair, so I will ONLY work with Manhattan Buyers from now on for a several important reasons: Fair: Of the three buyers in NYC that I actually ended up showing the rings to, all three including Manhattan buyers were in agreement about the quality of the stones. The main stone was deeply set in gold and there was some question about being able to see it for what it was. My set came with an EGL certification which is not GIA certification (know EGL is not specific or respected as GIA, and buyers are very cautious as a result …there is a big difference!). I also had an written estimate of what the original jeweler would buy it back from me for (25% of what they sold it to me for BTW). Without knowledge of that estimate, Arthur quoted me within $50! Although I was disappointed that the value was much lower than what it originally cost (READ I paid much too much for this set originally), I got the BEST price from Manhattan Buyers AND it was just what the jeweler who knew the stone would give me to buy it back. Honest: I was amazed by the whole process of how diamonds are marked up as they move out of NYC. They were clear on how and why it happens and what I can do to ensure I don’t over pay next time, which actually made sense. I cannot stress enough, his quote was almost exactly what the original jeweler who actually knew the stone, offered to buy it back. Although he offered me cash, I was nervous traveling with that much money, so he wrote me a check. I must admit I was concerned about that too, but he reassured me, and in fact the check cleared quickly, without a problem at my local bank. Professional, yet very personable: From the very start, they responded to me quickly via email and phone. I got an estimate over the phone – it was a range, but it gave me a ballpark which was helpful. They adjusted my first appt time easily due to travel issues. Both Arthur and Aba knew their business, spoke directly and frankly, but were kind, open and understanding to my situation. I called the next day unexpectedly (30 mins prior to their closing time) to finalize the transaction due to my work schedule and Arthur came in immediately to meet with me, paid me what he quoted me and I was on my way feeling really good about the transaction. Selling something so valuable and sentimental is a difficult process…and Arthur and Aba made it so much easier. Fair, Honest and Professional in a business that can be tricky to navigate is what sets Manhattan Buyers apart. And if you want to BUY a diamond, go to the source, NYC, for the best price for the highest quality and see Arthur or Aba at Manhattan Buyers.
Arthur was very knowledgable and handled my transaction quickly and efficiently. Brought in a bunch of random items – he took the time to review each piece and explain how it was valued. Highly recommend – will definitely go back again.
Manhattan Buyers is a wonderful place where you find professionalism, knowledge and most importantly kindness. Aba A. Yunayev goes beyond the call of duty to make sure that you get the best deal and feel at home. Stop by and work with Aba and the staff of Manhattan Buyers. You will be glad you did!
Aba was great. Very honest and straight forward about my options for selling my watch. I would recommend Manhattan Buyers to anyone.
Honest, fast service, courteous and professional. Everyone in the office is really nice and they make you feel welcome. The entire process took about 15 min and they were able to pay straight away.
The staff at Manhattan Buyers are phenomenal. Arthur and other members of the team assisted me with selling my old assets and offered a price that was fair and reasonable. The transaction process was speedy and I left the office confident that I received the best offer. I will definitely recommend Manhattan Buyers and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
I was a little nervous about selling my piece of jewelry, but Arthur made me feel very at ease. He walked me through the good points and bad points of my piece, and explained why I paid what I paid, and how he came up with his offer. I walked out with what I thought was a fair price (I was given the option of cash or check), and received what I felt was a very professional and pleasant experience. I would definitely go back to Arthur when I’m in the market to buy or sell new jewelry. Thanks so much, Arthur!
The Best In The Business. I was in a very serious financial situation and I drove into Manhattan from Upstate New York to MBI. I met with Arthur and he took very good care of me. Arthur was very personable and understanding to my situation. He treated me with dignity and respect, which i appreciated in my time of need. The entire staff is polite and very well articulated. This is a class establishment and I would recommend them to anyone. If you have a problem and need cash fast go to see Arthur at Manhattan Buyers Inc. in Manhattan on the corner of 47th Street. You will be treated like a person. I am definitely going to share with my friends and family the service I received from Arthur and his staff. Keep up the good work.
I was looking to sell a diamond and knew the basics but wanted to pick a company that understands a lot of selling a diamond is based on service and trust. I quickly found the MB website and within 30 seconds the live chat appeared and 30 seconds later I had a range for my stone (unseen of course). After reviewing the site and live chatting I had a very convenient time set on Saturday (which was not offered by everyone) and I received an appointment reminder with directions and contact information. I arrived a few minutes early to the very nice and secure offices and was let in and shown upstairs to the waiting area. I was offered refreshment and made to feel very welcome and right on time I discussed with Mr. Yunayev the sale of a stone. It was a very good experience and I would recommend MB to anyone. MB offers great service before and during the visit, a fair price, a secure and very nice location, and a gracious staff that made me feel rather welcome. A+.
