Certified Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

Posted on December 07, 2016 by Grant Laughter

As a trusted Asheville & Waynesville jeweler, John Laughter Jewelry offers a wide selection of high quality jewelry to match any taste and budget. When it comes to watches, there is one name that’s synonymous with superb quality and exceptional craftsmanship and it’s Rolex. As the most recognized watch brand in the world, Rolex watches are highly desirable and prized by collectors the world over.

If you’ve been looking for affordable Rolex watches in Asheville or Waynesville, you should know that John Laughter Jewelry sells certified, pre-owned Rolex watches. Every pre-owned Rolex we sell has been meticulously inspected & completely serviced to ensure the highest level of quality & performance and is presented with a one-year warranty and box.

Why Buy A Pre-Owned Rolex?

Silver RolexIf you’re thinking about buying a Rolex watch, you may be wondering if you should buy a new watch or a pre-owned watch. Here are some of the benefits associated with buying a pre-owned Rolex that may help you decide which way to go.

You’ll Save Money

The most obvious benefit of buying a pre-owned Rolex versus one that’s brand new is cost savings. The quality and demand for new Rolex watches means that prices are often very high. And while a new Rolex watch you’re interested in may well be worth the price being asked, you may not be able to justify spending such a large amount of money for a brand new watch.


You Won’t Have to Worry About Depreciation

Another consideration when deciding whether to buy a new or pre-owned watch is depreciation. Just like when you buy a brand new car and drive if off the lot, a new luxury watch of any brand will depreciate in value as soon as you purchase it. This can be completely avoided with a pre-owned Rolex as the original owner has taken that hit for you.

You’ll Have Many Watches to Choose From

There are many more pre-owned Rolex watches for sale than new models. This can be very advantageous if you want to buy a particular Rolex you’ve been coveting for years as you are likely to find the exact model for sale at a price you can afford to pay.

How to Clean Your Jewelry

Posted on November 01, 2016 by Grant Laughter

At John Laughter Jewelry, not only are we proud to appraise, buy, and sell some of the highest quality jewelry on the market, we also want to help you enjoy your existing jewelry, as well! As Western North Carolina's largest estate buyer coupled with our years of experience appraising diamonds and other precious jewelry, we have a lot of experience working with and cleaning jewelry – and trust us, it's not as difficult as you might think. In fact, cleaning your jewelry is easy, and it doesn't require anything besides what you'd find normally lying around the house.

Making Silver Shine

Silver is gorgeous when it shines, but tarnish sets in quickly. For pieces that are just dull or only beginning to tarnish, mix a few drops of dish soap with water and wash the piece with a cloth, rinse it clean, and then buff it with a cloth until it's dry. For heavier cases of tarnish, use a paste of three parts baking soda to one part water, rub the paste in with a lint-free cloth, rinse it off, and buff the piece dry.

Keeping Gold & Gems Glittering

To clean gold or jewelry with gemstones, mix a few drops of mild dish soap into a bowl of sodium-free seltzer water or club soda, then let them soak for five minutes. Swish the solution around, using a soft-bristle toothbrush to go over the finer crevices and settings of the jewelry. Once finished, rinse the pieces clean, pat them dry, and then leave them upside down to completely dry, preventing water from seeping into the settings of the stones.

White Gold vs. Platinum

Posted on June 07, 2016 by Grant Laughter

At John Laughter Jewelry, we see and sell a lot of wedding rings and bands of all shapes, sizes, and materials - and one of the most common questions we get from customers is on the difference between platinum and white gold. Both metals are white or light silver in color, shine brilliantly, and are commonly used on wedding bands as an alternative to yellow gold. So how are they different, and which one is better for a wedding ring? To find out, let's compare the two metals.
