Sell Your JAR Fine Jewelry
In this moment of Marie Kondo and doing away with excess, many people find themselves looking through their belongings and weeding out those things that are no longer useful or meaningful for them. This is a deeply personal decision, especially when it comes to things like jewelry which represent a sentimental moment and/or and expensive purchase.
But when it comes to selling jewelry, you can’t trust just anyone. Not only do you want to make sure your items will remain safe and secure but you also want to know that you will be getting the best price for your item. Worthy prides itself on filling both these roles.

We work to make your item looks its best, with cleaning and polishing when necessary, and auctioning it to a group of vetted diamond buyers who know the market and the true value of your item.

Jewelry For Jewelry Lovers: JAR
Joel Arthur Rosenthal (JAR) is an American who has lived and worked out of a Paris studio on Place Vendome his entire career. His mystique and fine jewels have earned him a cult-like following by collectors around the world. He makes fewer than 100 pieces a year, and each is one-of-a-kind. In 2013, a retrospective of JARs work was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2006, Ellen Barkin, following her divorce from Ron Perlman, sold the collection of jewelry he had given her at Christie’s. The highlight of the sale was 17 pieces of JAR, including a thread ring with pave set diamond rings swirled around a 22.76 ct diamond. The total collection sale reached over $20M.
Why Sell JAR JewelryWhile jewelry from JAR is exquisite, for many of us without red carpet events, our opportunities to wear it are few and far between. And if that piece comes from an old relationship, all the more reason for it to sit unworn in a jewelry box. Selling JAR jewelry can make room for new, more wearable jewelry and/or help you move on and begin a new chapter.
The Value of Branded Jewelry at Resale And It Can Be Determined?
In 2014, Mckinsey & Company looked into the performance of sales of branded jewelry in the secondary market. The results show the market is growing steadily and researchers expect it to continue to 30-40% by 2020. There is plenty of room for growth, however, as branded jewelry constitutes for less than half of the market and items already there are in high demand. Well-known brands such as Tiffany & Co., Cartier, and Van Cleef & Arpels are recognized as superior quality jewelry and therefore in high demand.
But value in the secondary market is determined by more than the strength of the brand name. Buyers are still looking for exceptional stones like a large diamond with a high color and clarity rating, a noted provenance, or items from an era where the style remains very popular, like Art Deco. Other factors include the condition of the piece, its age, the quality of the side stones and mounting, and the design.
