Circa Jewels, a leading buyer of preowned fine jewelry, diamonds and luxury watches, has opened in La Jolla for its 22nd location worldwide.
Thuyvi Tran, a graduate gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America and former director of Circa’s San Francisco operation, is bringing her knowledge and experience to the new office at 4225 Executive Square. She invites clients to schedule complimentary jewelry evaluations with immediate payment for the items they wish to sell.
Tran addressed several questions about the business:
Q. What is Circa? What is its mission?
A. Circa is the industry leader, buying preowned fine jewelry, diamonds and luxury watches from individuals who wish to sell. We have a global team of highly trained experts and convenient online services to sell from the comfort of home. Circa’s mission since 2000 has been to elevate the selling experience while providing great value and rewarding ways to sell the items our clients no longer wear or want.
Q. What is your experience with Circa?
A. I have been with Circa for over a decade. Prior to joining in 2012 as a senior buyer in New York City, I had over 10 years of experience in the fine jewelry and watch industry. In 2015, I became director of Circa San Francisco and in 2021 I opened our Palo Alto location. Now I’m thrilled to be back in my beautiful hometown of San Diego to launch Circa’s newest addition.
“Selling the jewelry we no longer want or wear can grant us the permission we crave to indulge in the luxuries we really do want.”

Q. How can clients sell to you? How does it work?
A. Clients can schedule a private in-person appointment or start a free online submission.
