Signet-Owned Rocksbox Now Sells Pre-Owned Fine Jewelry
“Pre-Owned Luxury by Rocksbox” offers secondhand jewelry from Kay, Zales, and Jared to members and non-members.
The move marks another step for Signet into the secondary luxury market. Kay, Zales, and Jared offer pre-owned fine jewelry on their websites.
For Rocksbox, it’s the first time it will offer a fine jewelry collection for purchase on its website.
The brand started with fashion jewelry, later expanding to demi-fine.
“Pre-Owned Luxury by Rocksbox” offers pre-owned fine jewelry for rental or sale that has been inspected and certified by parent company Signet.
The jewelry is from fellow Signet-owned jewelers Kay, Zales, and Jared, and includes pieces from the “Disney Treasures” and “Enchanted Disney” collections.
Shoppers can find classic styles like pearl earrings and gold hoops as well as more whimsical Disney-themed jewels, like a “The Nightmare Before Christmas” pendant and “The Lion King” lion-shaped earrings.
"With the launch of the Rocksbox Pre-Owned Luxury collection, we are excited to expand our fine jewelry offerings and give these pre-loved pieces a new life while making a wider range of styles accessible to jewelry lovers nationwide," said Gina Gorman, vice president of marketing at Rocksbox.
The collection features jewelry in 10-karat and 14-karat gold and sterling silver. Some pieces have diamonds weighing up to 1 carat.
The collection is generally priced from $100 to $600.
Current offerings range in price from $114 for a sterling silver and diamond pendant to $599 for a 10-karat white gold and diamond pendant.
Members and non-members can purchase the pre-owned jewels, while Rocksbox gold-level members—those who have spent at least $1,000—can rent them.
In May, Zales launched its own fine jewelry rental service.
The beta program, launched earlier this month, further strengthens its position as a force in “the circular jewelry economy,” said Rocksbox.
The new program could welcome more cost-conscious customers into the world of fine jewelry.
Rocksbox said its pre-owned fine jewelry offerings can help customers build up their fine jewelry collections, try out a new style, find the right piece for a special occasion, and experience wearing fine jewelry.
