Getting the Most Money For Your Jewelry

Sell jewelry in San Francisco to earn instant cash and make room in your crowded jewelry cabinet. Nearly everyone has unwanted jewelry taking up much-needed space, whether it's that diamond bombe dome brooch from the 1970s or the 1980s gold geometric earrings you wore with your layered polo shirts. Here are a few tips on how to sell your unwanted jewelry for the best value.

What To Sell?
Local jewelry stores are often interested in buying jewelry from individuals for more than just the jewelry's scrap value of gold. Sometimes, the jewelry's setting and design are just as intriguing to local jewelers as the dollar value of its components. For that reason, jewelers buy pieces from a variety of sources, including:

  • Estate jewelry

  • Antique jewelry

  • Heirloom Pieces

  • Custom jewelry 

  • Old watches, brooches, earrings, necklaces and bracelets.


Tips on How to Sell

Know What You've Got
It's always a great idea to have an understanding of what your jewelry is worth before you take it to a local jewelry store. If your jewelry has been appraised recently, bring the appraisal with you. If you don't have a recent appraisal, take your treasures to a few jewelers to find out what they would offer you for a general value estimate. 

Research Your Options
In addition to getting estimates from several jewelry stores, it's important to check your preferred jewelry store's reputation. Read online reviews, ask friends and family members for recommendations and look for jewelers who belong to trade associations that hold their members to high ethical standards.
