At Janus Jewels, every commission is an intensely personal affair, and integrity is key. For clients looking to extend their collections, Janus will advise on and source specific pieces to both complement and build on existing compendiums of jewelry or gemstones. Equally, for clients needing more guidance, Janus takes great pride in locating or creating exactly the right piece that will continue to bring joy for years to come.
“At Janus, we are guided by beauty. Everything we handle is genuinely special and the best of its type. Undeniably, these are items of considerable value, But, in the perfect stone there is more magic than money. With that comes responsibility: we are both custodians and matchmakers.”
The London jewelry dealer of choice for those requiring the utmost discretion; whether buying or selling jewelry, clients are assured of complete confidentiality at all times, together with expert, honest evaluations and highly competitive rates. Importantly, transparency is an essential element of each, individually agreed commission. Clients are kept informed throughout every step of the sales process, and when promises are made, they are kept. In the rare instance your expectations cannot be realised, we will let you know immediately.
