Sell Jewelry For a Better Price
Last updated: February 17, 2019
Today's Women Sell Jewelry to Finance Their FutureFor years, women have been keeping collections of fine jewelry that ultimately go unworn. Some of them were presents or engagement rings, some were inherited and others they bought for themselves. But after having kids, building careers and businesses, many women find less purpose for elaborate earrings and designer jewelry.
To many women, great grandma’s cameo brooches, lockets and hat pins are looking less like treasured antique jewelry and more like a way to finance a business move or college tuition for their child (or themselves!). This is a big transformation from generations past, when there wasn't as much demand to sell jewelry. Now, that the demand has grown, there are more places to sell jewelry both locally and online.
Best Places to Sell Diamond Jewelry
With the fluctuating value of gold jewelry and diamonds, it is important to choose the very best place to sell jewelry, that fits your needs and can give you a fair offer. Selling jewelry locally or with a jeweler near you comes with a significant challenge as the retail markup for jewelry far exceeds its market value and a conflict of interest exists when it comes time to buy those pieces back. Many individuals prefer to try locally first and work with a trusted jeweler. However, many people find that their jeweler has a limited ability to provide a fair offer and ultimately turn to online solutions with expanded offerings.

Getting a Fair Market Price for Your Diamond Jewelry
The immediate benefit of selling jewelry online is plain and simple - more offers. When working with a single jewelry buyer, the value of your jewelry is up to them at any given time. When there are multiple jewelry buyers, the true market value of your jewelry can more easily and accurately be determined. From a larger pool of demand, comes a greater likelihood that a fair, even competitive offer will be made.
Worthy taps into this very concept with the Worthy auction platform. Once your diamond or jewelry has been graded by either GIA or IGI, professional, trusted jewelry buyers from Worthy’s Buyer Network are invited to bid on it.

Worthy Diamond Jewelry Buyers
What makes a Worthy jewelry buyer?
Worthy only works with vetted, trustworthy jewelry buyers. Every buyer that applies to the Worthy network is screened, some even requiring professional references. Worthy screens them to make sure that they are currently in the jewelry industry, understand the value of your item and are able to stand by the substantial offers they make at auction. Every item is guaranteed, and every bid is binding.
What kinds of jewelry do jewelry buyers bid on the most?
Worthy auctions consist of diamond jewelry in addition to loose diamonds and watches. These items garner the highest demand. Jewelry items containing diamonds that are worth over .5 carats each are most preferable.
How do your jewelry buyers hear about my valuables?
Buyers in our network have set their preferences for the types of jewelry they would like to bid on. When you tell us about your jewelry piece, we already get to work to build interest in your item. When you decide to proceed with an auction following the IGI/GIA grading, we invite buyers that are expressly interested in your type of jewelry. They have 5-7 business days to place their bids, and receive daily updates to encourage competition.
Luxury Item Protection
Worthy provides up to $100,000 in insurance coverage for every shipment. We trust Lloyd's of London, a global leader in insurance since 1688, to protect all valuables auctioned on our platform.
