Frequenty Asked Questions About Selling Your Jewelry?

How much will I get paid?

I answer this question after I inspect the jewelry. It can be difficult to do without a close assessment. With appraisals and GIA reports, I can sometimes give an estimate; however, I need to see the item.

What percentage do you as a jeweler pay for jewelry?

This question is similar to the previous one and depends on the piece. In a few instances, I have paid WAY more than some insurance appraisal values (150% more than the appraisal value). Other times and more frequently, I have seen appraisal values 1000 times more than I could pay.

What is the process for selling unwanted jewelry?

Setup an appointment in my small and discreet Overland Park jewelry office. You can text me to setup a time. Our meeting will be quick. I will assess your piece and make you an offer. If you chose to accept, the offer I will write you a check.

How do you pay?

We pay with a check and do require a valid government-issued photo identification such as a drivers licence or passport.

What jewelry do you buy?

The list is long, but here are some highlights: engagement rings, diamonds, bracelets, earrings, estate jewelry, heirlooms, antique jewelry, gold, gold bullion and coins.

Do you trade-in jewelry or credit towards a new piece?

Yes, we commonly take old or unwanted rings, diamonds, and jewelry as payment or partial payment when we are making a new piece or completing a jewelry repair.

Is it a good time to sell my gold, diamonds, rings or jewelry?

Yes, offers are based on current market conditions. As of July 2024, gold and diamond markets are strong now versus where they have been most of life. We are selling and believe it is a good time.

What can I expect when selling my jewelry?

Marsha and I are jewelry professionals and will complete a thorough and honest evaluation. Our office is safe and low pressure. In addition, Marsha and I will give an honest assessment, which sometimes is not what someone wants to hear. We aim to make lasting relationships with clients.

Do I need paperwork or an appraisal?

No, it is not required. Though, please bring any paperwork you have including a GIA grading paper, original receipt, or insurance appraisal. Please note: there is no need to pay a jeweler for an updated appraisal if you are going to sell an item.
