At auctions big diamonds go usually very high, but small diamonds are only
benefit for the auction houses. People react more at auctions to the design than
to the real value from the pieces, and mostly dealers buy and sell at auctions.

David Wirtenberg, 28 Outrageous Auctions (eBay User ID: outrageousauctions)
New York City Projected 2006 Sales: $8 million to $10 million
Description: Engagement rings, wedding bands and other jewelry
Turning Talk Into Sales: David Wirtenberg loves to talk. "I could talk your
ear off," he says. "I love what I do. I'm a very passionate
person." His ability to make sales, and his prior experience in sales for
Bear Stearns and Auto Data Processing, helped him build his business from
scratch in 2003. His father-in-law became his inspiration and behind-the-scenes
mentor. "He said, 'Let's see if we can sell jewelry on the internet,'"
Wirtenberg recalls. "I went to 47th Street in Manhattan. I knocked on every
door. I didn't know anything about diamonds at the time. I was looking for
suppliers, for an education, anything." He ended up buying a couple of
diamond rings, and he immediately sold them for a profit on eBay. "I
thought, 'This could be something.'"
Many Facets to His Business: Today, Wirtenberg sells through his websites ( www.outrageousauctions.com
) and through eBay. "I use eBay to get new customers and new traffic,"
he says. "Most of my diamond auctions start at 99 cents. Sometimes I lose
money; sometimes I make money. Whatever makes the customer happy, I do. Our
packaging is second to none. Sometimes we pack our diamonds in Faberge eggs [for
free]. Once you have customers, you have those customers for good."
Personal Touch: Wirtenberg speaks fondly of the personal connections he has made
and recalls the time he and his wife, Danielle, personally delivered a $14,000
ring to a customer in California. "The fringe benefits touch you deep
inside," he says. "You play a huge role in people's lives. I have
provided advice on people's engagements. I feel I am blessed every single day
with the direction this business has taken."
We wish you a
brilliant diamond day.
