Judy Scheuer, owner of Belle Roche
Estate Jewelry Buyers, has been in the jewelry
business for over 25 years. A native San Diegan,
she got her start in an estate jewelry buying shop in
1987 as an assistant to the owner. She has worked
in various aspects of the jewelry business ever since,
as manager of several estate jewelry retail stores and a
wholesale diamond company. Through the years her
favorite job was buying from the public, and her goal
was to open her own business doing this. She did
so in 2006, establishing Belle Roche Estate Jewelry
Buyers, a business that caters to the "selling
"In other places I worked, the public had to come in to
the shop and stand at a counter with other prying eyes
over their shoulder," says Judy. "I wanted to
create an environment where an individual could come and
sit in a private and comfortable office away from other
customers. Often the person has a sensitive
situation when they are selling personal valuables.
Someone could be going through a divorce, a broken
engagement or financial troubles, have experienced a death in the family, or some other
intensely personal circumstance. In a private
setting such as the one I have set up, a person dealing
with such difficulties may feel more at ease and safe."
"As for my buying policy," says
Judy, "we take the time to evaluate each piece
carefully so that we pay the most we possibly can.
We operate on the principle that people in need deserve
to be treated with respect and be given fair and honest
treatment when parting with their property. We
never try to take advantage of any difficulty a person
may be having."
Dano McCarthy, Buyer for Belle Roche
Estate Jewelry Buyers, also a native San Diegan, has
been in the jewelry business for over 25 years as well.
He has been a buyer of estate jewelry and watches for
most of that time. He has extensive experience in
particular with fine Swiss watches such as Rolex,
Cartier and Patek Philippe.
Dano has been interviewed and quoted in
National Magazines on everything from current metal
market trends, men's jewelry fashion and even the
environmental benefit of re-using and recycling jewelry.
"What I love about estate buying is that you can never
say 'I've seen it all.' Every once in a while a
customer will bring something in that needs to be
evaluated, investigated, and eventually invested in. The
most rewarding part of this job is helping clients get
the most out of their estate pieces."
