Appreciation Guarantee
An investment in family

The vast majority of jewelry bought by the general public is actually worth nothing more than its weight in scrap. Even some so called ďartistís piecesĒ often posses little more than sentimental value as soon as the sale is final; this is because demand dictates the resale value and demand usually only increases after the artistís death, many times long after the metal in most of their works has been reclaimed. It has always saddened me to hear about the handmade jewelry, sometimes quite old, that disappears forever into the melting pots, because the metal was worth more than the piece.

House of Dubhrós is the only artifactioner that guarantees our pieces to actually appreciate over time. To ensure this we offer a buy back guarantee, so that each of our pieces will always be worth more than simply the sum of its parts.

We will buy back any piece created by House of Dubhrós under the following terms.

We will offer 10% of the original purchase price of the piece within the first two years of the purchase date from House of Dubhrós. This is already more than most jewelry today resales for, and twice the price of scrapping it in many cases.

After the second year our offer raises to 20% of the original purchase price.

After the third year it goes up to 30% of the original purchase price.

After the fourth year it goes up to 40% of the original purchase price.

After the fifth year it goes up to 50% of the original purchase price.

After the sixth year it goes up to 60% of the original purchase price.

After the seventh year it goes up to 70% of the original purchase price.

After the eighth year it goes up to 80% of the original purchase price.

After the ninth year it goes up to 90% of the original purchase price.

If you choose to sell your House of Dubhrós heirloom ten years after purchase date we will offer to buy it back at the original purchase price. And from the eleventh year on our set offer will actually be 110% of the original purchase price.

We have been asked why we stagger our buy back policy. The answer is simple: we want to you to buy in confidence and assure you that your work of art will appreciate over time. We are in the business of making timeless pieces and family heirlooms to be treasured across generations, not liquid asset investments. This is a way to offer you a solid guarantee without having to deal with the folks who view art as a get rich quick scheme.

The buy back guarantee only applies to items in the original condition in which they were purchased from House of Dubhrós. Certificate of Authenticity or written verification of original purchase date and price (receipt etc.) must be provided in order to process transaction.
This lifetime guarantee is only valid for the original purchaser, and is non transferable.

From time to time offers may be made for certain pieces not in original condition (therefore not covered by this guarantee). This is done solely at the personal discretion of the owner and is not subject to this guarantee or its appreciation scale. In other words, donít bring in a damaged ring with the stones removed and expect original value, folks.
