First Look: Store5a Sells Vintage, Pre-Owned Jewels in Short North

Taylor Starek

Brought to you by the owners of the Diamond Cellar, Store5a is an all new shop in the Short North.

You'll find cases chock-full of pre-owned jewels there, priced affordably, and luxury handbags that have been gently used.

(Seriously, we spotted this stunning Celine bag, priced at $2,700, and somehow resisted the urge to snag it.)

The store caters to the fellas, too, offering beautiful vintage and recycled watches from Breitling, Bell & Ross and Rolex.

All jewelry and accessories are refurbished and authenticated by GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certified employees.

The idea for a brick-and-mortar Store5a location came only after the Diamond Cellar launched an online shop last summer, offering refurbished gems at up to half off original prices. You can still browse or buy items at

Located at 765 N. High St., the store officially opened on June 16. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. The shop is closed on Sunday and Monday.
