Born and raised in Plain City Ohio, Seth moved to New York in 2008 with a dream of starting his own company.
Specializing in buying and selling fine jewelry and watches, his dream took him around the world with clients in Asia, Europe, South America, and the Middle East, and culminated in the founding of one of the world’s foremost jewelry and watch auction houses.
In his business and travels, Seth has had the opportunity to handle tens of thousands of pieces of jewelry, including some of the rarest, most exquisite, and most iconic pieces, collections, and estates—from Art Deco tiaras, to large colored diamonds; from signed French jewels, to European royal collections; from “Paul Newman” Rolexes, to the highly sought-after Cartier Crash.
Mentored by industry masters and veterans, Seth is recognized as a leading expert in the secondhand jewelry and watch markets and has been invited to present at prestigious events, from appraisal conventions to GIA alumni meetings..
Yet in all his endeavors, Seth has never strayed from his Midwestern roots. And this is why when his first child was on the way he knew it was time to come home.
