Applying economies of scale, jewelry industry expertise, and artificial intelligence algorithms / eCommerce know-how to a large and antiquated market space, Gleem provides a long-needed alternative to pawn shops and eBay at one end of the spectrum, and ultra high-end timed auctions at the other. Finally, a solution that benefits the end consumer, be she a buyer or seller: a single destination for the most exceptional treasures, with exclusive deals (because we eliminate the middle men), trusted appraisers, and personalized white-glove service. And because our average order size is upwards of $2,000, our costs are low and margins substantial.

Gleem first consigns the merchandise, offering free two-way shipping (insured, and tracked, by Brinks). We then have it appraised by leading accredited appraisers, polished up, and photographed by expert jewelry photographers (both stand-alone and on-model). The result is a beautiful online storefront, where customers can be delighted as they learn about unique pieces of jewelry and receive personalized recommendations. We provide the same after-sale services as a local jeweler, but with a better assortment, price point, and return policy.

Remember Diamond District shenanigans pre-Blue Nile? We're focused on a single disruptive aggregation platform rather than family feuds and back room dealings.

Remember shopping cosmetics pre-Sephora? We offer a multi-brand and specialty assortment without the pushy commission-driven sales associates.

Gleem is jewelry buying & selling made easy, transparent, and fun!

Nikki is one of the most savvy and hard working CEOs I know. She has a passion for merchandising and jewelry that shines through in the product. She has brought together a stellar team that is building a best-in-class marketplace. It's a strong team of jewelry professionals and eCommerce experts who are all committed to building THE go-to site for selling and buying designer jewelry. The market is huge and fragmented and I believe Nikki and her team will move quickly to command a large share. Seller and buyer customer interviews were positive, sighting a seamless selling / buying process with excellent customer service.
