Bring your unwanted jewelry, diamonds, watches or gold to one of our locations and have one of our highly trained graduate gemologists or trusted numismatic experts examine your item(s). Our buyer will then make you a cash offer to purchase your item(s).


If you want to freshen up your look by getting a new piece of jewelry, trading in your old piece could be an ideal option for you. We typically give between 20-40% more in total value with a trade-in compared to our cash price.


If you have an item of particular quality and value that you're interested in selling but don't have an immediate cash need, consignment might be the best option for you. Items on consignment will normally yield the customer between 75-90% of the sale price, all of which will be agreed upon at the time the consignment item is received. We typically reserve consignments for items of a particular quality and value. On average items that we take in on consignment will sell between 90-180 days of receiving the item, but in some instances can take up to a year. When you place an item on consignment with us, you always have the option to sell your item outright, trade it towards another piece of jewelry, or request to receive it back. Simply call or email the contact information on the consignment form.


At International Diamond Center, we buy all types of jewelry, so whether you are looking to sell an engagement ring, sell a Rolex, sell a diamond ring, or are simply looking for jewelry stores that buy quality jewelry near you, we are the jeweler to trust. Make an appointment now to have your jewelry inspected, learn our offers, and select the offer that's right for you.


In addition to being your local diamond experts, we employ a team of highly trained graduate gemologists and trusted numismatic experts offering the maximum return for your unwanted jewelry, diamonds, watches and gold for nearly 40 years. We provide our customers with in-person professional consultations, top value for their treasured pieces and quick and secure transactions.


Jewelry is something we all have lying around - whether it is ours, our mother's, or even our grandmother's. But unless you bought it yourself, how do you know what it is supposed to be worth? And even then, how do you know you bought it at a fair price? Many people don't know what to look for when buying (or selling) jewelry, so we contacted a local jeweler - M. Rahal Jewelers - for some good advice on how to avoid being ripped off.


Mounir Rahal explained buying jewelry to me with this analogy: Shopping for jewelry is very similar to shopping for a home or choosing a restaurant to dine at. You could spend $5 on a happy meal, but there will be no long-term satisfaction. It will not be good for you and you'll have issues with the decision later. Whereas if you bought a more expensive dinner (as is with a more expensive piece of jewelry), which uses better ingredients that are better for you, it will have better long-term effects, it will be more rewarding, and require less upkeep.


3. Trust the person you are buying the nice jewelry from. The saying is, "if you don't know your jewels, at least know your jeweler." So who are the best jewelers to know? The local ones, like M. Rahal Jewelers.


Special thanks to M. Rahal Jewelers for contributing their expertise. If you don't know what the jewelry you have is worth, we recommend checking with Rahal at M. Rahal Jewelers for an honest appraisal!


Get fair market value for your jewelry and watches and receive an additional 20% applied immediately towards a store credit or trade for anything in our store. We are a family owned business and will evaluate and appraise your jewelry to the highest standards in order to maximize your return in cash.

Which is more fun, getting a root canal, paying your taxes, or selling your jewelry? Not much of a choice, but following is some knowledge that can take the frustration out of selling your jewelry. And answer the hard questions like: Will I receive a fair price for my jewelry? Or did I pay too much?


Estate is a general term used to describe previously owned. That fact is one of the determining factors. Preowned jewelry by in large is not as valuable as new. Some people will never buy a previous owned engagement set for superstitious reasons. I have had clients who could have saved hundreds of dollars if they would have bought a preowned ring, but refused.


Here are some cleaning tips. Never clean gold and gems in chlorine. Ammonia based cleaning products are used throughout the jewelry industry, but they can damage some gems. Try and avoid them if you can and know for certain if they well not hurt the gems in your jewelry. Use a mild soap with warm water and a soft toothbrush, then rinse thoroughly for most jewelry. A hard toothbrush and toothpaste or toothpowder will scratch gold and hurt some gems. The best cleaning tip is to know for certain the best cleaners to use on your jewelry and do it carefully.


The jewelry industry has been recycling for millennia. In fact some of the gold in your jewelry could have been in use since the time of Jesus. Damaged beyond repair jewelry is bought at its intrinsic worth. The intrinsic value is the metal (gold, platinum, silver) price plus any gems. The refining process used to recover the metal utilizes strong chemicals and has strict environmental regulations which impact the price given for metal brought to be recycled.


If you would like to know how to calculate the metal price and do the math read on, if not skip to next paragraph. The formula used to calculate the price is the metal price(the daily spot price) multiplied by purity(the true noble metal content) times weight(can be in ounces, pennyweights or grams) . The purity is the karat of gold or percentage of noble metal (gold, platinum, silver). 24 karat is pure. 10 karat is 10/24 or .410 gold and the balance of weight is the alloys. 14 karat is 14/24 or .583 gold and 18 karat is 18/24 or .750 gold. Platinum most of the time is 90% pure and 10% alloy. Silver jewelry is usually sterling, which is .925 pure. The three units of weight used with precious metals are troy ounces, pennyweights, and grams. The troy ounce is equal to 20 pennyweights (DWT) or 31.15 grams (learn more about measure precious metal weights). So here is an example; say the spot price of gold is $300 and a 14K ring weighing 10 grams would work out like this. $300 (spot price) X .583 (the fineness of gold) equals $174.90 per ounce divided by 31.15 (troy ounce to gram) equals $5.63 per gram times our ring of 10 grams equals $56.30. Just remember to subtract some refining cost and profit for the dealer and you can find out the intrinsic metal value for your jewelry.


This list of ways to sell estate jewelry is not exhaustive. Personal creativity can show you the best way to sell your jewelry or one the more traditional methods may work out just fine. Examine your options and evaluate the benefits and drawbacks to find the very best way to sell your jewelry.


On-line auctions offer a lot of advantages and some risks. On-line auctions like e-bay are auctions conducted over the internet reaching a world wide audience. The cost of selling an item is modest if the object sells. Sales are not guaranteed. Which on line auction to use is a critical choice. The large auctions have many offerings and sales but it is easy to get lost in all that activity. Selecting the best category is another challenge. If you choose a smaller on line auction company, many potential buyers will not find your offering. The decision is best made with research on how your particular type of jewelry was sold. E-mail and ask other sellers if they got the price they wanted and how the selling experience was for them.


Jewelry brokers offer a professional service for a fee. Think of a jewelry broker as a hired professional working for you against a very sophisticated market like the jewelry industry. Make sure their allegiance is to you alone. Most jewelry brokers are highly trained in gems and jewelry. Jewelry brokers charge a percentage ranging from 10% to 50% depending on the type of service provided. Brokers can assist with a piece going to a top auction house or find a local dealer willing to pay top dollar fast. Some jewelry brokers also act as a dealer and buy out right for an immediate transaction. Jewelry brokers are usually found in major cities and include a jewelry and diamond finding service.


Pawn shops and secondhand dealers are another type of walk-in and sell option. Most work on a cash evaluation of the jewelry. The cash value on most estate jewelry is a percentage of the intrinsic value. The key to understanding this buying environment is the percentage. Some dealers pay close to 90% of the intrinsic value, while others pay as low as 33%. The only way to find the best price is to physically take the jewelry around to a number of shops. Then sell to the shop that offers the best value.


Consignment offers the incentive of a higher price when sold but the draw back of time. No one knows how long it will take or even if it will sell. The stores that offer consignment range from second hand bargain stores to elite jewelry stores. The type of estate jewelry you have dictates which store will attempt to sell your jewelry. If you have a high end piece in excellent condition the elite location could yield a fine return.


Newspapers offer individuals the best chance to sell to a retail customer. The classified shopping consumer, in all likelihood, comparison shops more then anyone else. They know the prices of your jewelry new and will pay a discount for a used article of jewelry. Also realize that the prices asked for in the paper are rarely achieved and do not reveal the true market value. Some times the jewelry is sold for very much less then advertised or never sold at all. But with some safeguards and timing the classified ad is generally one of the highest prices realized for average estate jewelry. 041b061a72
