Auction is the most trusted, and surprisingly simple, way to sell jewelry. Let us guide you through the process step-by-step, from consignment to payment.
Is It a Good Time to Sell My Jewelry?
Our 2014 worldwide jewelry auctions totaled $603 million, an increase of 14% from the previous year. On April 21st, New York held its most successful jewelry sale to date, with particularly high prices paid for top-quality diamonds, colored stones and signed jewels. Bidders competed from 40 countries, driving the bidding on jewels by David Webb, Tiffany & Co. and Harry Winston well beyond their presale estimates.
Do you no longer wear your diamond necklace? Has your grandmother’s emerald ring been sitting in the vault for years? From a few photographs and details, we will advise you on your jewelry’s potential at auction.
