Why Sell Your Wedding Ring with Worthy?

Many of our clients find us after a quick Google search for where to sell their wedding ring. That’s because many satisfied customers have left outstanding reviews after their Worthy experience.

Mary DeCosta is one example. Her experience outlines the reasons why so many people decide to sell old wedding rings and other unworn jewelry with Worthy’s unique, high-value auction platform.

“I really wanted to sell my wedding ring via a trusted website where I could get my ring graded and sold fast,” says Mary. “I had some important home renovations to get done before winter started, and I didn’t have time to waste. After taking a look at Worthy’s website, I realized they were exactly the sort of company I was looking for.”

Like Mary, many clients mention how they appreciate seeing features such as Worthy’s excellent BBB rating, as well as the process itself, which lets multiple buyers compete for the items at auction. Worthy’s benefits include:

  • Better offers – Worthy’s professional buyers’ network sets our platform apart. With access to our nationwide network of professional, pre-vetted jewelry buyers, you benefit as multiple buyers compete for your wedding ring. This way, you get more for your wedding ring than you would when offering it to a single buyer.
  • Prepaid, fully insured shipping – When you submit your ring, you’ll be provided with a printable shipping label. Full insurance of up to $100,000 covers your item every step of the way, from the moment your ring is in the shipper’s hands to the moment it is sold to the highest bidder.
  • Complimentary grading – Understanding key features of your ring is vital to receiving a fair price for it. We partner with the world’s best gemological labs such as GIA, where your item is graded, cleaned, and photographed prior to sale.
  • Simple process – Instead of driving from one jeweler to the next in hopes of receiving a fair offer, simply print a shipping label, schedule a FedEx pickup, and we’ll do the rest. Grading, cleaning, photos, and marketing are taken care of on your behalf.
  • Work with a dedicated auction manager – When you sell your wedding ring with Worthy, you’ll work side by side with an auction manager who will walk you through every step of the process and keep you updated along the way. You will always know what’s happening with your jewelry.

We pride ourselves on the exceptional level of expertise and personalized service that we provide. It’s one of the many features that sets Worthy apart. 

We only trust the best diamond grading lab in the world, GIA, to grade valuables prior to auction. Diamonds sold with GIA grading reports are considered more valuable and can command higher prices.

Our Shared Success

What Determines a Wedding Ring’s Value?

When you get in touch with our team at Worthy to discuss selling your wedding ring, we’ll want to know everything about the ring itself. The more information we have and the more we know of the story behind the ring, the better prepared we’ll be to sell it for the best possible price.

There are also a number of physical factors that determine the value of a wedding ring, including:

  • Cut, Carat weight, Color, and Clarity are four key considerations in determining a diamond’s value. If your ring has a diamond or multiple diamonds set in it, we’ll need to figure out what they are worth individually. The better the diamonds in your wedding ring, the more money you are likely to receive. Diamond shape matters, too; if your diamonds are in a shape that’s currently trending, demand will be higher and you will be more likely to enjoy higher bids as a result.

  • Designer brands like Tiffany’s typically sell for more, but this is just one of several factors that buyers consider when determining how to bid.

  • When selling your wedding ring, it’s important to understand that condition plays a major role in how buyers bid. Most buyers want rings that are in good or excellent condition. If your rings are scratched or worn, they’re still likely to attract attention since some of our buyers want raw materials that can be used in new designs. Your personal account executive will work with you on this.

  • You might think that brand-new wedding rings would fetch the best prices, but this isn’t always true. In fact, some buyers prefer antique or vintage rings for their unique features. Our marketing experts use terminology designed to attract buyers who are interested in wedding rings of different ages, so the market determines the ultimate price.

  • Buyers are eager to purchase unique wedding rings, so interesting design details tend to attract lots of attention at auction.

All of these factors play a role in the price you’ll receive for your wedding ring. Your personal account executive—who will be working with you from start to finish throughout the process—will keep you informed about each of these elements and where your ring falls in each category.

How to Get the Most Money for Selling Your Wedding Ring

Selling your wedding ring online is the best way to make the most money. When you sell online, you’ll receive more offers for your ring. This makes it far easier to receive the true market value of your ring, as often fair and competitive offers come with a larger pool of buyers.

Worthy’s auction platform design is based on the concept that with a larger pool of buyers, there is a far greater likelihood that sellers will receive desirable offers. At the same time, our buyers appreciate Worthy’s transparent process, bidding confidently on items that have been graded by IGI or GIA.
