4 Tips for Selling Your Diamond or Estate Jewelry


4 Tips for Selling Your Diamond or Estate Jewelry

To help unravel the mysteries of diamond selling, here are four tips to consider before selling your stone.

1. Identify valuable pieces

Before making any decisions on estate jewelry or old personal items, take stock and identify your valuable pieces. Don’t throw things out, but rather pare out items you know don’t have intrinsic value. Outside of the family, heirlooms and sentiment don’t always hold worth. Before you go out and buy that new car, have one of our qualified appraisers give you an analysis of your jewelry. We have GIA certified gemologists on staff that can evaluate and explain current market trends for any vintage jewelry or loose gemstones. We can provide written appraisals for estates or insurance purposes or simply make verbal offers to buy items outright. Regardless of your choice, getting a professional appraisal is your first step.

2. Establish realistic prices

Understanding which pieces are valuable is only the first step. It is important to take into account the buy/sell dynamic. Unrealistic expectations for jewelry, watches and diamonds will always lead to disappointment. Again, sentimental value and age don’t add up financially. Knowing what items can sell for is an important piece of information, but dealers have to resell items after assuming all risks, and expenses to resell an item. U.S. Coins and Jewelry will clearly explain both sides of the market usually offering compatible items or prices realized to substantiate pricing.

3. Know your options

Having culled through and evaluated your properties, knowing the various ways to sell is important to making a sound decision. The modern age offers sellers a number of avenues for liquidation, but each with its own fees and risks involved. Selling directly to the public may net the seller a top price, but these transactions are fraught with pitfalls. Selling directly to U.S. Coins and Jewelry will cut directly through the red tape while providing the seller with a safe trade environment, a secure and private transaction, and most of all a fast and fair price.

4. Timing the sale

Know when you’re mentally ready to sell. Jewelry and gemstones can often be keepsakes from the past reminding the owners of family and friends. Emotional attachment can be a strong deterrent to selling. Coming to grips with psychological attachments can help a seller avoid any remorse after the check has been cashed. At U.S. Coins and Jewelry we understand the bonds we build with our simple treasures, and will process all appraisals and purchases with the utmost respect for the sentimental value held by each piece we handle. Our evaluation uses damage free processes to ensure each piece is treated with the care it deserves.

If you are planning on selling estate jewelry or diamonds, don’t forget these 4 tips, Know what you have, set a realistic price, investigate your selling options, and most importantly, be emotionally ready to sell. When you are ready to sell, visit U.S. Coins and Jewelry. U.S. Coins and Jewelry is registered with the State of Texas as a Precious Metals Dealer and our scales are not only certified but also calibrated by the State of Texas.

U.S. Coins and Jewelry has been my go to for buying and selling coins, silver and gold for years. My most recent experience was quick and easy. The staff are friendly and helpful. They really take the fear and uncertainty out of investing in precious metals and coins, and their exchange fees are very reasonable.

I walked into this place for the first time and was wonderfully greeted by some very friendly associates. This shop is a treat and seeing all the great things it had to offer was amazing. From comic books to coins to even art and watches this shop has it all. I will most definitely be coming back and they offer great deals on buy backs. What a time to be invested in precious metals!

They were very professional, personable and efficient. They trusted - without seeing the actual paper - the quote I received elsewhere for a Rolex watch. They didn't meet it - THEY BEAT IT! Very nice, safe place to do business.

Before going to U.S. Coins, I went to another location much closer to me and the price they gave me did not seem right. So I went to U.S. Coins and they more than double the buy. After speaking to the person I dealt with I decided to only sell my deceased wife's necklace and they still gave me much more than I would have gotten from the other dealer. U.S. Coins were polite and very easy to deal with.
