When Global Gold & Silver receives a piece of our client's jewelry, our team starts the offer calculation process by doing research on the item. Next, we offer a free but detailed evaluation or appraisal. In some cases, the value of the items we get may exceed that of its diamonds or other precious metals. For example, a vintage pin, a valuable coin collection, or a designer watch. We will pay our clients the best price that the market will bear. If the value of the item does not exceed that of its raw materials, the piece will be priced accordingly.
Understanding the Resale Value of Your Valuables
When you purchase a diamond bracelet or engagement ring in a store, these items often go through two rounds of markups, i.e. the retail markup and the designer’s markup. You should keep in mind that these markups are rarely recovered. Professional jewelry buyers often value jewelry by considering the quality and weight of the item's precious components. That is why you should think carefully before selling pieces that you are deeply attached to or are still wearing.
Selling Old Jewelry
At Global Gold & Silver, we buy old jewelry too. Our jewelry experts can evaluate your items right in front of you. After weighing your valuables on state-certified, ultra-accurate scales, we will make you an offer. There are no assessment fees and you can take the offer home with you for further consideration. If you accept our offer, you will then decide how to receive the payment, e.g. by check or in cash. After that, we will provide our client with a written receipt.
