HOW TO SELL YOUR JEWELRY IN JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

Sell Diamond Jewelry Jacksonville

Floridians who call beautiful Jacksonville home may have a harder time selling their old jewelry than they anticipate. Though the jewelry shop windows may be full of gorgeous necklaces and rings, these are nearly all new goods because shop owners have little incentive to buy and resell jewelry.

Most of the time, the buy-low-and-sell-high model that has served jewelers for so long gives them almost no leeway to offer a fair price on used pieces. This hardly seems justifiable when considering that a diamond bracelet’s value is straightforward: it’s made of precious gems and metals! It often feels like the only strategy these days is to walk from store to store in the city, entertaining a handful of low offers.

Worthy offers a unique and effective solution for those who want to sell jewelry in Jacksonville. In fact, you can sell your jewelry right from your home or office. In this article, we’ll explain how to do it. But first, let’s understand what makes Jacksonville unique.

ABOUT JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

Jacksonville stands out as a significant cultural hub in Florida which is not surprising considering the city’s size and long-time popularity. Back in post-revolutionary times, former President of the United States Andrew Jackson served as the Military Governor of Florida, with this city named in his honor following his contribution.

Jacksonville, Florida has made significant contributions to American culture. Especially when it comes to music. There have been several different genres of music that were born or significantly influenced here – all varying wildly from one another.

Included on this list is the blues, a style that was first performed in Jacksonville over a hundred years ago. The beginnings of jazz made their appearance in the area as well, with Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and more traveling from far and wide to play at the Jacksonville Ritz Theater.

A bit further removed from the blues but nonetheless a Jacksonville original, Limp Bizkit was founded here in 1994. Their thrashing rock sound brought nu-metal onto the scene in the early 90s and was a crucial factor contributing to Jacksonville’s status as a center for this trend.

Limp Bizkit were not the first rockers to land here however. An even more famous pair of bands began here in the late 60s and established Jacksonville as the home of southern rock: The Allman Brothers Band (in 1969) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (in 1966), though the latter began as The Pretty Ones and changed their name in 1969.

But Jacksonville isn't just a musical hub. It’s also a tech and industry one, too. The father of the modern computer, Don Estridge, was a Jacksonvillian. The city has been a center of American civilization for hundreds of years, and therefore has also become a concentrated area for wealth. As a result, you will find many grand local jewelry stores here and pawn shops as well, all catering to the finer tastes among Jacksonville’s citizens.

WHERE CAN YOU SELL JEWELRY IN JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA?

You can go to many places in Jacksonville to sell your jewelry, but walking away with a fair market offer is not so easy. Here are the options available:

Local Jacksonville Jeweler: Go to a local pawn shop or jeweler to sell your diamond engagement or wedding ring, and prepare yourself for a disappointing price.

This is because the margins that your local jewelry buyer operates with are razor thin. And the only price that will give them a chance to earn back their investment will not necessarily be fair for you. By getting an offer and comparing it with other shops in the area, it’s possible to drive up interest, but it may also prove to be a journey that is hardly worth the effort.

Online: For those who want to sell jewelry online for the highest price and take the process into their own two hands, choosing Worthy as your selling partner is an easy, fast, and fun way to sell used jewelry at the best price.

Worthy pays for insured FedEx shipping to our facilities where we will conduct a professional photoshoot and GIA or IGI diamond grading to ensure your piece’s full value is understood. From your end you can always stay updated regarding the status of your item by following the auction online.

Let’s learn more about how you can sell your jewelry with Worthy right from your home in Jacksonville.


HOW TO SELL YOUR JEWELRY WITH WORTHY

Selling jewelry with Worthy is a fast and easy process designed to maximize your money from the sale of your diamond ring. Here’s how the process works:
  1. Submit a description of your jewelry through Worthy’s online form. Describe your diamond jewelry to see if it qualifies for auction. 

  2. Schedule a FedEx pickup – Worthy will prepare a FedEx shipping label for your jewelry. Your jewelry will be fully insured while in transit from Jacksonville to Worthy’s headquarters in New York City

  3. Grading & Auction Preparation – All jewelry on the Worthy auction platform is graded at a top gemological lab such as GIA or GSI. They will issue an official diamond grading report to let jewelers understand the characteristics that drive your diamond’s value.

    Next, your jewelry will be photographed in high definition from every possible angle. This provides potential buyers with all the information they need to make an informed decision during the auction process and enhances your jewelry’s value in their eyes. 

  4. The Auction - Worthy invites our network of high end professional jewelry buyers to place bids on your high-end jewelry. The GIA or GSI report presents buyers with the technical specifications of your jewelry. During the auction, jewelry sellers can watch the auction map live to see the bids coming in. 

  5. Claim Your Payment – If the highest bid meets or exceeds your minimum reserve price you set for your jewelry, you will get paid quickly. If not, you may request to have your jewelry returned to your address free of charge.

WHY SELL YOUR JEWELRY WITH WORTHY

Besides the opportunity to receive the best price — already a great reason! — there are many reasons why one would prefer selling their diamond jewelry with Worthy over selling to a local Jacksonville jeweler. These reasons include:

Security: The biggest concern when we handle items of value is how safe these items are. At all times, sellers using Worthy are insured against damage and theft for the value of their item. Worthy pays for insured FedEx shipping when the jewelry is in transit to our facilities and to the jewelry buyer. All customer financial and personal information is protected just as thoroughly.

Transparency: We know it’s difficult to let go of your old jewelry. Handing someone else your valuable item before getting paid can be nerve-wracking.

However, from the moment your diamond ring or jewelry leaves your hands it is fully secure and insured by us. Furthermore, you are kept well-informed on the status of the jewelry and the process throughout the entire process by our amazing customer support team.

From shipping, to grading, to photography and eventual listing on the auction platform, customers have thorough knowledge of how their item is being handled.

Objectivity: One often leaves a jewelry buyer with an “eyeball” offer – that is to say, one that is completely subjective. With precious metals and gems especially, it can be risky to accept an offer that isn’t based on the intrinsic value of the jewelry.

At Worthy, we never seek to assign an item’s value. Instead, we allow professional photography, gem grading, weights and nuanced details to speak to an item’s actual value. Buyers who can see the true value of something are more likely to place confident bids, meaning more cash in your hands.
