ABOUT US

When you do business with Blue Diamond, you immediately learn that we are different from other companies that buy and sell with the public.

WE ARE EXPERTS

WE ARE EXPERTS

People who know what they're talking about don't have to guess about the authenticity, value and marketability of the merchandise at hand.  We know what we're talking about!  That enables us to make our best prices whenever we're buying and selling, and that enables our customers to deal with confidence.  Click OUR TEAM to meet our colleagues and see their impressive credentials.  Also, we have deep knowledge in categories of merchandise that may be of interest to you even though they're no longer popular; let us help you understand how to acquire or liquidate those items.  Nobody in South Texas surpasses our collective experience and certification.

WE ARE LICENSED TO DO WHAT WE DO

WE ARE LICENSED TO DO WHAT WE DO

Ask other companies for their license number and they'll probably replay, "Huh?".  We are collectively and individually licensed by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), the Office of Consumer Credit (OCC) under  the authority of the Texas Department of Public Safety (TDPS), the Federal Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as graduates of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the American Numismatic Association (ANA) grading program.  Even our scales are sealed for accuracy by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).  We've recently done appraisals and liquidations for the Trust Departments of Broadway Bank and Randolph Brooks Credit Union, and for the San Antonio offices of the FBI and the DEA.  We are committed to providing the public with accurate information and professional, drama-free services.

WE MAKE OUR BEST PRICES THE FIRST TIME

WE MAKE OUR BEST PRICES THE FIRST TIME

No, we don't haggle.  We proudly display our sale price on each and every item we sell, and that price is truly our best price.  If we have a piece of merchandise for too long, we'll automatically lower the price on the tag and, if necessary, we'll pull it off the shelf and sell it to the highest bidder at our next public auction.  When we make offers on your unwanted valuables, we'll carefully examine and evaluate each piece, then make you our best offer the first time.  We don't ask you, "What are you looking to get?", and we don't play the "How about...?" game that they play at virtually every other establishment.  You don't have to like our prices but, whether you're buying or selling, the price you get is truly our best price... the first time.

WE EDUCATE OUR CUSTOMERS

WE EDUCATE OUR CUSTOMERS

We jokingly brag, "We know everything... Give us your best shot!", but we're only half kidding.  If we don't know, we'll tell you that we don't know but, almost without exception, someone on our team will know.  We are educators at heart, and we enjoy sharing our knowledge with you.  Let us help you to understand whatever merchandise you're looking at; it's free and without obligation.  No appointment is necessary.  When you offer us your unwanted valuables, we don't disappear into the back room, then return with a number; we examine everything right in front of you, tell you everything that we see and everything that we're thinking, and we explain how we'll go about evaluating each and every piece.  Our customers repeatedly tell us how much they appreciate that they learn something every time they visit us.  Compare the Blue Diamond Way with our competitors, and we'll plan on seeing you again and again.

WE ARE NOT A MUSEUM

We don't fill our store with sketchy merchandise, then wait for just the right buyer to come along.  We showcase only the best pieces in the most popular categories.   We are traders: we are constantly buying and selling.  Plan on seeing new and different merchandise every time you visit us.

WE'RE HAPPY TO TALK WITH YOU

If you need insight into any facet of any merchandise at all, let's sit down and talk about it.  Whether you're looking for something rare or seeking to dispose of an entire estate, we're confident that you would benefit from sharing your needs with us.  There's never a charge to pick our brains, and we even provide free verbal appraisals.  Call us or come see us whenever we can be of service.  We're looking for lifelong relationships, and we're willing to work to earn that privilege with you. 

WE DON'T ADVERTISE

If we tell people how wonderful we are, they may not believe us; we need YOU to tell them!  So, we don't waste a cent on advertising.  We totally depend on our customers having a positive experience whenever they visit us, then leave Google reviews and tell their friends and family about us.  We'll never do anything to threaten our happy relationship with you because we're counting on you to help us spread the word.  Please check out our Google reviews, then come in and experience the difference.
