How do I approach jewelry buyers?
The safest way to deal with jewelry buyers is through an experienced precious metal and gem buyers' network like Worthy. The reason for this is that Worthy works with a pre-selected team of partner appraisers who know precisely how to sell and accurately appraise your jewelry for you, so you don’t have to worry about selling for anything under the highest market value. Selling with Worthy also turns the usually lengthy affair into a quick, simple process to sell jewelry fast and make you cash. All you have to do is request an evaluation by submitting a short description of your jewelry via the Worthy site or over the phone. You’ll then receive a market value estimate shortly after.
What kind of jewelry appeals to jewelry buyers?
The majority of serious jewelry buyers are looking for engagement rings, diamond earrings, pendants and bracelets made of 18 karat gold or more. The jewelry can even be scratched or have links missing or even a latch. So don’t be discouraged if you have broken jewelry tucked away in your closet. You can still sell it and make good money.

Once you decide that Worthy is the best place to sell your jewelry, you'll ship your items directly to our headquarters. All of the shipping and insurance costs are covered by Worthy. Upon arrival, it will be treated to a deep cleaning, after which it will receive an expert evaluation at no cost to you.

Next, we publish a very detailed description and professional photograph of your item on our online jewelry buyers’ platform. Interested buyers will begin to bid on your item and we won't rest until the highest market value offer comes in. Once we close the final sale, you’ll receive your cash almost immediately.
