With any piece, we start by doing research. If we determine that it’s value exceeds that of its raw materials — such as for a designer watch, a valuable coin collection, or a vintage pin–we’ll pay you the best price the market will bear. If the piece is no more valuable than its raw materials, we price it accordingly.
Do you provide phone or email quotes?
Since our goal is to pay out well and accurately, we don’t like to quote prices over the phone or via email. For every precious piece, there are nuances that effect value— and we’re not just talking about karats. A certain designer, a limited edition production, a remarkable ember glow-all can add to the value of your piece, and we’ve got to see it to assess it. Anything else is unfair.
