Consignment items represent jewelry that is owned by an individual, who wants to liquidate their pre-loved piece, usually at a substantial savings to the consumer. These pieces are priced by the owner and belong to them, but have been contracted to Hoppe’s to display in our store and on the web site. Hoppe Jewelers has cleaned, polished, and, examined the pieces to determine the quality and descriptions are accurate. Hoppe's has also determined that the jewelry is in good wearable condition but, Hoppe Jewelers does not own or warranty these pieces. Any transaction for these pieces is between the buyer and the owner, and Hoppe Jewelers serves only as a broker for these pieces.
