CJ Charles Jewelers.

Vahid Moradi, president and CEO of CJ Charles Jewelers, is proud to announce that CJ Charles Jewelers is expanding their legacy of exceptional watches and jewelry. Opening mid-August, CJ Charles Vintage will focus exclusively on certified preowned watches, estate fine jewelry and the highest grade heirloom diamonds.

The CJ Charles Vintage store will carry previously loved watches which have been rigorously tested by their watchmakers; they must pass the highest of standards to become a certified preowned watch. Every certified preowned watch is meticulously restored to factory specifications and polished to perfection. CJ Charles Vintage has a certified preowned selection of fine watch brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe, Panerai, Audemars Piguet, A. Lange & Söhne, Cartier, IWC, JLC, Breguet and more.

In addition, they will house an impressive collection of highest grade heirloom diamonds and fancy colored stone jewelry. Their carefully curated selection of estate jewelry ranges from signed brand pieces such as Tiffany & Co., Bvlgari and Cartier, to period pieces from the Art Deco and Victorian era. At CJ Charles Vintage, you will find unique heirloom pieces and extraordinary jewelry.
