Designer jewelry can be a stunning, classy addition to your wardrobe, but it can also be a lucrative opportunity. Beyond the value provided by the name, the materials used to make designer jewelry are often extremely high quality, which means it will be worth more than lesser-quality pieces even if the brand falls out of popularity.

When your luxury watch stops keeping time, your designer bracelet snaps, or you simply aren’t wearing certain pieces anymore, you can turn them into a nice payout. Save the money for later use, like for a trip abroad, or even to update your wardrobe with some new jewelry.

How To Sell Your Designer Jewelry

What Is the Best Place to Sell Designer Jewelry?

If you’re wondering where to sell designer jewelry, you have a couple of options. The traditional option is to sell to a pawn shop, jeweler, or other in-person buyer. However, selling to an online buyer like Diamonds USA is becoming increasingly popular and may be the better bet. Here’s how the two compare.

In-Person Buyers

With this type of buyer, you’ll typically need to drive to their location and give your items to an associate for an assessment. They’ll come up with an amount based on how much they can resell your jewelry for, then offer you a percentage of that amount.

Online Buyers

With this type of buyer, you can start the process from home (or anywhere with internet access) on the buyer’s website. Then, you’ll mail your items for an assessment and wait to receive an offer. Offers from online buyers are almost always significantly higher than those from in-person buyers because they have fewer overhead costs and are typically interested in the materials and not the resale value of the jewelry as-is.

If you’re still not sure where to sell luxury jewelry, here’s the bottom line: pawn shops and jewelry stores just can’t keep up with online buyers. Because of how easy it is and how much more money you can get, selling online is definitely the better option.

How Much Can I Get for My Used Luxury Jewelry?

The amount that you can get for your jewelry depends on a number of different factors. Here are just a few things that will be taken into account:

  • Type(s) of materials: The different precious metals and gemstones used to make the jewelry will each have their own value.
  • Quality: Precious metals have a single price regardless of quality, but gemstone prices can vary by the quality of the stone.
  • Market prices: The current market price is used to determine how much a material will sell for at a given time.
  • Weight: The weight of each material is multiplied by its market price to give a final value.

The only way to know for sure how much you can get for your jewelry is to have it assessed and get an offer from the buyer. 

We Buy All Kinds of Designer Jewelry

Unlike other buyers who are concerned with having to resell your jewelry to customers, we’re interested in buying your jewelry for its material value. If a pawn shop has too many pieces from a particular designer or has a hard time selling their jewelry, they might not buy those items. At Diamonds USA, we’ll buy your designer jewelry no matter what it looks like or how the brand is doing.

Luxury brands we purchase include (but are not limited to):

  • Cartier
  • David Yurman
  • BVLGARI
  • Tiffany & Co.
  • Harry Winston
  • Van Cleef & Arpels
  • Chopard
  • Boucheron 
  • Graff

Again, it doesn’t matter whether your designer items are in good condition. If your jewelry is scratched, broken, missing gemstones or damaged in some other way, we’re still happy to take it off your hands and give you cash in return.
