Clean & Assess
We will most likely ask you if we can clean your piece(s). This allows us to better evaluate the overall quality of the piece, the gemstones, the diamonds, etc. After cleaning, we determine if the piece can be sold in our “estate” or pre-owned jewelry case or if it needs to be purchased for its materials (or “scrap value”). If we can resell the piece in our case, your chance for getting a larger return increases.
Check for Designer Hallmarks
Because of our expertise in buying jewelry, we are able to find designer hallmarks on your jewelry from notable fashion houses such as Van Cleef and Arpels, Bvlgari, Tiffany & Co., Cartier and more. If your jewelry has a hallmark from one of these brands, it could be worth significantly more.
Detailed Explanation of Our Evaluation
After we’ve determined our offer for your jewelry, we will present it with a detailed explanation of how we determined the value. If you are interested in selling, we simply take a copy of your Driver’s License or ID, and pay you while you wait! We are able to give you cash or a check for the items we purchase.
