  About Hamilton York Estate Buyers
 Hamilton York Estate Buyers is your direct connection to the international diamond, fine jewelry and luxury watch markets. Our domestic wholesale offices in California, New York and Indiana, along with associate global offices in Tel Aviv, Antwerp, Bombay and Hong Kong, provide unparalleled market expertise.
We are uniquely qualified to identify, appraise and purchase exotic estate jewelry collections, highly complicated, limited production watches and ultra-rare natural fancy pink, blue, red and yellow diamonds, assuring that your choice to work with Hamilton York Estate Buyers is based on complete confidence.
 What does this mean for you and your clients?
 When your client wishes to sell diamonds, fine jewelry or luxury watches, Hamilton York Estate Buyers is the best option for a number of reasons. First, we pay your client more than local dealers or retail jewelry stores that often purchase jewelry from the public, or from an estate or trust and then sell to us; second, we outperform others because jewelry stores and local dealers generally lack exposure and requisite expertise to accurately appraise and purchase large diamonds, complicated watches or exotic gemstones; and third, we reimburse any appraisal charges to you or your company profit center when we purchase merchandise we appraised. 
 Unlimited Purchasing Ability and Immediate Payment
Because selling items held in an estate or trust requires expediency and professionalism, we meet you and your client in a bank, trust organization, or attorney’s office for assessment and payment. With unlimited purchasing ability, Hamilton York Estate Buyers initiates an immediate direct wire transfer to the bank account selected by your client.
Our express purchasing procedures eliminate the uncertainty and delay associated with selling merchandise through an auction house. Furthermore, if your client’s item doesn’t achieve the reserve price, they are still responsible for shipping and insurance charges along with illustration fees; if the item does sell, a 10% seller’s fee and 25% buyer’s premium are assessed. Given these charges, Hamilton York Estate Buyers’ immediate payment frequently results in higher benefits to your client.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
