Our History

Diamond Banc was founded by Mills Menser, a third generation jeweler and owner of the Buchroeders, retail jewelry company which has been in continuous operation since 1896. Mills believes in being a true 360 degree jeweler, assisting customers with all their jewelry needs, not only when they wish to purchase an item or get a repair, but also when they wish to sell or get a loan on an item. Due to Mills' experience in the industry and association with Buchroeders, Diamond Banc offers unmatched purchasing power, lending expertise and overall industry resources.

The name Diamond Banc derives from our mission to offer clients the same professionalism and confidentiality of a traditional bank that allows clients to turn to their jewelry for their liquidity needs whether they are selling an item or using it as collateral to obtain a loan. In order to give clients unparalleled service and a luxury experience Mills elected to start the Diamond Banc, whose sole focus is assisting customers with obtaining the maximum value for their jewelry whether it is a loan on the value or an outright sale.

In 2018, Diamond Banc partnered with Diamond Cellar Holdings to help extend our services to more people nationwide. Diamond Cellar Holdings, owned by the Johnson Family, is one of the largest independent jewelry stores in the United States, and is an authorized dealer of the finest brands in the world from Rolex, and Patek Philippe to David Yurman.
