Dustin Explains, "Why the Edison Exchange"
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.
