Selling Your Jewelry - What You Need To Know
I have been buying and selling fine jewelry including engagement rings, gold, and diamonds in Kansas City for decades. Before you visit my jewelry store, here are a few details to know including the process.
I try to make selling jewelry, gold, diamonds, and/or engagement rings as painless as possible. My jewelry store is a low pressure environment. The process is usually very straight-forward and quick.
Gather Your Items
Decide what you want to sell, what you are may sell, and group them.
If you have information such a prior appraisal or purchase receipt, please gather that as well. I will ask for it. If you do not have anything or know anything about your jewelry, NO PROBLEM. Do NOT pay someone for an appraisal.
Make An Appointment
When you reach out to me, I will ask for pictures or any information you have. I do that to make sure that I am interested in buying the jewelry you have.
Marsha and I will appraise your items. We are normally very quick. For example, a meeting in which someone wants to sell 10 pieces usuaully takes about 30 minutes. Most appointments take about 15 to 20 minutes.
If I am interested, I will make you an offer. The environment is safe and low pressure. If you want me to explain my offer, I will show how I figured the cash value I did. On rare occasions, I will need more time to put together an offer in which I will ask you to leave the jewelry with me, secured in my vault and insured while I put that together. You are welcome to consider my offer for a few days.
If you accept the offer, I will write you a check which you can deposit in your account or cash downstairs at the bank. Before writing you a check, I will need a take a copy of a current and valid government ID such as a drivers license.
