Through the partnership, Fink's Jewelers clients can access CIRCA's expertise — through in-store buying events and a year-round mail-in program. This year, CIRCA will host more than 20 in-store buying events at Fink's locations nationwide. At the buying events, CIRCA expert buyers meet with Fink's clients to evaluate every piece of jewelry and present an immediate offer and payment or an incentivized store credit. Additionally, all Fink's locations now offer access to CIRCA's year-round mail-in program, which offers a direct line to CIRCA's expert buyers at all times. CIRCA manages the key logistics of this program that includes both insurance and shipping coverage.

"This partnership is an important addition to the services we offer our customers," said Marc Fink, President & CEO of Fink's Jewelers. "For over 80 years, we have built lasting relationships with our customers and this is an important step in offering our customers the best possible service. Working with CIRCA, we can expand the services we offer our customers who are looking to upgrade or transform no-longer-worn jewelry into a new watch or piece of jewelry. Until now, there has not been a resource we have felt confident offering to our clientele and we look forward to this exciting new customer offering."

CIRCA's Senior Director of Global Satellites, Craig Miller added that the initiative is an important step forward for CIRCA's Authorized Purchasing Agent Program, adding another premier jeweler to CIRCA's exclusive jewelry buying program.

"Fink's Jewelers is one of the most trusted jewelers in the industry and this exclusive partnership will add great value to both of our companies," he said. "This model creates a winning scenario — we match our buying expertise with their selling expertise and shared passion for impeccable client service, creating a partnership that has a proven track record of increasing jewelry sales while providing a value added service for clients to dispose of their unwanted jewelry."
