Customer Stories

Nick P.:

I visited John Laughter Jewelry after inheriting a large collection of costume jewelry from my mother. Most of it was costume jewelry so I just assumed it wasn’t worth anything. After John evaluated my inheritance he found 3 pieces of jewelry that were worth $10,000, $5,000 and $4,000! I am so pleased I took the estate to John Laughter Jewelry, because of their honesty I had an extra $19,000 to put my boys through school.


Susan G.:

I went and saw Grant to sell my mothers Rolex. I didnt take his offer at first and shopped around, even mailed it to some dealer in New York. He beat all the other offers by $2000, the first time. I wont visit any other shop. - Susan


Cornelius W.:

Tammy bought my engagement ring when my girl and me split up... got a new cbr1000rr. Best decision ever.


Jill J.:

My husband and I went to John Laughter Jewelry in Waynesville to have Tammy look at some jewelry that I had and could no longer use. She took the time go over each piece and give me her opinion of the value. Tammy made this a very pleasant experience. She takes her time and never makes you feel rushed. That is very important to me. When she was done, she explained the choices I had and I made the choice to sell most of the pieces. I will definitely be back to the store in the future. My husband and I were very impressed with everything about Tammy and all the people involved with John Laughter Jewelry.
