Is it worth it to sell old jewellery?

It all depends on the piece you have, as well as your expectations. If you’re looking for payout in the top margins then these are a few factors that jewellers look for:

  • Condition- If a piece of jewellery is in poor condition and requires repairs, this will have a negative impact on its value. For example, a gold ring which is scratched will be worth less than one in pristine condition.
  • Brand- There are certain high end brands which have a higher value on the second hand market, such as Tiffany & Co, Chanel and Van Kleef & Arpels. A ring from one of these brands will always fetch a higher price than an unsigned ring with very similar qualities.
  • Raw materials- When you bring your second hand jewellery in for appraisal, their raw materials will always be checked. The precious metals which make up the piece will be assessed and weighed- then the results of the quality and carat will in large determine their value.
  • The original box- Designer jewellery, when bought first hand is always packaged in a box and papers which also come from the brand. If you still have the original box and papers this will increase the value of your second hand jewellery. This is particularly true when it comes to the buying and selling of pre-loved watches.
