Washington, DC – October 10, 2023 – Today, Resale-as-a-Service platform Recurate launches resale program, Re-Jeweled, for Lizzie Fortunato, a New York City-based accessories brand founded by twin sisters Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato. They are the first jewelry brand to launch an integrated branded resale marketplace onto their site.
With Re-Jeweled, customers can resell previously purchased Lizzie Fortunato pieces (whether they were purchased directly from the brand or from a retail partner) in exchange for credit towards their next purchase. Those items will be available to purchase as part of the brand’s Re-Jeweled collection, featured on the main navigation page. Recurate’s technology facilitates the listing form, approvals dashboard, shipping label creation, and program analytics. Because Recurate’s resale platform integrates directly with Shopify, customers can purchase with a cart containing new and pre-loved items in the same checkout experience.
“I’m thrilled to be a pioneer in the jewelry resale space and to offer Lizzie Fortunato fans a place to access those special pieces that ‘got away,’” says Lizzie Fortunato. “So often we have customers who will email us in search of a style from a few seasons back. Given the limited-edition nature of our collections, past styles are often very hard to find (we produce runs of 100 or less units for most styles). So we’re delighted for Lizzie loyalists to find coveted pieces on Re-Jeweled. Kathryn and I have always set out to create accessories that can be passed down between generations and worn for years. Now in addition to our robust repair program, we’re so happy to have another way for customers to extend the life of their pieces by selling and buying on Re-Jeweled.”
“Lizzie Fortunato has cultivated an extremely loyal customer following online and through their retail partners, which makes their limited-edition pieces coveted on the resale market,” says Recurate CEO & Co-Founder, Wilson Griffin. “Now with Re-Jeweled, customers have a new entry point to access their colorful, eclectic pieces and give their designs an even longer life.”
