The Edison Exchange is proud to offer a great selection of Antique and Estate Jewelry. We absolutely love what we do and believe in what we do. 

The founder & Estate Jeweler, Dustin Ellis, offers selections from his personal collection and the inventory of The Edison Exchange. Pieces are acquired from collections and sometimes by chance. Anything can be anywhere at anytime!

Words from Dustin Ellis: “I have a few rules when I’m on the road buying, or looking at a collection. Two of those rules in my decision making process are as follows: Do I love it? Would I keep it? If I can answer yes to both of those questions then I never lose. The world of Estate Jewelry is one filled with beauty and history. At one time the artist and the manufacturer were one in the same. These pieces represent eras when quality and humanity once walked hand in hand. These pieces inspire me, they challenge contemporary artistry, and most of all tell a story. I absolutely love what I do.”

Many times people ask “why The Edison Exchange”? “It doesn’t remind me of jewelry”. That’s kind of the point. We pride ourselves on being a unique venue to exchange Estate Jewelry, gold, silver, vintage watches, coins and even costume jewelry for currency, while also offering said items to savvy collectors and enthusiasts. We want to provide a unique experience and we want unique items to find their way to us.

Our name refers to the Edison Phonographs and the bygone eras that have produced amazing quality precious objects. The style, architecture and music of the Art Deco era have even become our signature decor and vibe. Our name directly references the Edison Phonograph dealers in large cities like “The Edison Exchange of Chicago”, where numerous Edison Phonographs were distributed to the masses in the early 1900s. A time when technology, humanity and art fused together to change the world forever. The name is unique and timeless like the items we acquire and offer.
