It’s always helpful to do a little research and figure out an estimate for the value of whatever you’re trying to sell. It’s also helpful to keep in mind that the price we offer you keeps that value in mind while also allowing us to make a profit. When it comes to your jewelry, it’s not always easy to figure out what it’s worth, because many pieces of jewelry are unique and because there are a number of factors that determine the value of your jewelry.

If you’re trying to figure out the value of your jewelry, here are a few factors to keep in mind:

  • The biggest factor that affects the value of jewelry are the materials used. Is it silver, gold, white gold, or platinum? Are those real diamonds or cubic zirconias? Even if you’ve been told that an item is made of such and such materials, it’s always best to have a professional inspect your jewelry for you to tell you what your jewelry is made of.
  • The condition of your jewelry also impacts its value. If it’s tarnished or rusted, look into having it cleaned and/or repaired. If it’s missing some gemstones or it’s a watch that doesn’t work, this will certainly impact the value of your jewelry.
  • The rarity of your jewelry makes it more unique and often more valuable, but it can also make it harder to price. So, have a professional jeweler examine your jewelry to figure out its value.

Before you try to sell any of your jewelry, be sure to clean it thoroughly. If it is damaged, look into having it repaired as well. Do some research to get a ballpark estimate of its value beforehand, and then come to sell it with an open mind and a willingness to negotiate.
