Looking to sell Cartier jewelry without box and papers? The first step in the selling process is always to gather any information and documentation that you have about your jewelry. This is helpful in ensuring that the jewelry you have is authentic and it helps to identify what model it is and which materials it is made from.

If you are looking to sell your preowned Cartier jewelry without the box and papers and don’t know where to start, these questions are helpful to keep in mind:
- Do the box and papers of my Cartier jewelry matter?
- What information do I need to sell my Cartier jewelry?
- How much is Cartier jewelry worth?
- Where can I sell Cartier jewelry without box and papers?
Do the box and papers of my Cartier jewelry matter?
Yes, but you can still sell without it. Cartier is synonymous with luxury and decadence. Founded in Paris in 1847, it has become a household name in luxury jewelry, popular for its iconic designs – such as the Love range.
The Cartier brand commands high prices, it is a highly popular and sought-after brand within the luxury jewelry sphere. This means that there are unfortunately a substantial number of counterfeit Cartier items on the market.
With this in mind, jewelry buyers are extremely cautious and careful to thoroughly authenticate each piece prior to making an offer. The original Cartier box and papers are a strong indicator as to the authenticity of a piece and therefore add value. However, as specialist jewelry buyers, we are able to establish the authenticity with or without this.
What information do I need to sell my Cartier jewelry?
In an ideal scenario, you will have retained the original box and papers for your Cartier jewelry. This includes any of the following: presentation box, warranty card, certificate of authenticity or an information booklet. It can also include the original receipt, which if bought recently could even be a digital copy.
These original documents will help certify the model and authenticity of your jewelry and if it is to be sold on to a collector, these documents are often required.
Note: If you are missing this information you can still sell your Cartier jewelry.
It is helpful to know:
- The specific jewelry collection: Cartier Tank, Love ring, Trinity de Cartier etc.
- Type of gold: rose gold, white gold or yellow gold
How much is my Cartier jewelry worth?
As Cartier is a household luxury jewelry name, the items tend to have a good resale value. The value is determined on the model and condition of the jewelry as well as the materials it is made from and its age. Typically this falls anywhere between 25%-35% of retail price.
It is important to note however that if you have an appraisal from a jewelers, this determines how much your jewelry is worth in terms of insurance purposes rather than resale purposes.
