Head shot 2015Looking for a jewelry & gold buyer in the Chicagoland area? Well, look no further than Sterling & Knight Jewelry & Pawn! J. Ford Sunderland, owner of Sterling & Knight, has been a jewelry buyer for over 30 years and, as a gemologist, is one of the foremost experts in the Chicagoland area.

As an industry expert, J. Ford Sunderland has been featured in articles in the Chicago Tribune, Crain’s Chicago Business, Fox News  and on the TV Show 190 North.

J. Ford Sunderland has a long history in the Chicago area jewelry industry. As a founder of James & Sons Fine Jewelry, he helped to grow that business into a four store fine jewelry chain featuring RolexTag HeuerHearts on Fire and Tacori. His 28 years of buying at James & Sons has honed his skills and expertise in buying diamonds and fine watches.

After selling his stake in James & Sons, J. Ford Sunderland went on to become a jewelry industry consultant, before going back to his first love and passion, which is jewelry and estate buying. Sterling & Knight Jewelry & Pawn was started in 2008, and has quickly become one of the fastest growing and most respected jewelry, gold and estate buyers in the western suburbs of Chicago.
