People sell their high-end jewelry for a variety of reasons. It may be that it is something that they no longer wear, something that they inherited or that they simply need the cash. The bottom line is that selling your Harry Winston ring, Chopard necklace or Graff earrings will allow you to generate money. And this can be put towards upgrading your jewelry, paying off your mortgage, vacations… the list is endless.

Whatever your reason for selling, the most important thing is to find a trustworthy seller that will pay you a fair amount. There are 2 steps to follow in order sell your luxury jewelry:

  1. Find the details on your piece
  2. Research the best ways to sell

 

  1. FIND OUT THE DETAILS ON YOUR PIECE

Any buyer will want to know the details of the item that you are looking to sell. Below we have outlined the information you need:

INFORMATION YOU WILL NEED
DIAMONDSThe carat weight, color grade and clarity grade.
METALIs it gold, platinum or silver? If it is gold, what is the karat weight?
GEMSTONESCarat weight.
BRANDIs it Tiffany, Cartier, Graff, Harry Winston etc.?
TIME PERIODIs this a modern, vintage or antique piece?

You may have the original paperwork on your piece that details the brand and the quality of any precious metals or stones. In which case you are in a good position to start selling.

If you do not, then it is important to get an educated opinion. A local jeweler can often give you a good idea of the characteristics of your jewelry at no cost. You do not need to ask for a written appraisal (there are costs associated with this).
