Jewelry Sold at Sotheby's

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is the best way to evaluate and sell my jewelry?
    Trust Sotheby’s to inspect and evaluate your special ring, necklace, bracelet, brooch, earrings, cufflinks, diamonds and gemstones. If you are considering selling your signed or unsigned diamond, sapphire, ruby, emerald, pearl, gold or platinum jewelry, simply send photographs, relevant paperwork, gemological certificates and other background information to Sotheby’s for an auction estimate.
  • How is today’s diamond market performing?
    The increasing rarity of the most exceptional white and colored diamonds means that the top end of the market is very much supply driven. There is a huge imbalance between supply and demand for colored diamonds as clients are willing to compete for the chance to own these rare and beautiful gems. Because colored diamonds are not commoditised, Sotheby’s has played a vital role in establishing and fueling this market, setting trends, and educating clients. Sotheby’s world record-breaking stones demonstrate the lengths that clients will go to in order to own a diamond valued in the same realm as a work of art by a master artist.
  • Are rubies, sapphires and emeralds also in demand?
    With the extreme shortage of fine quality gems, prices for truly exceptional Burmese rubies, Kashmir, Burmese and Ceylon sapphires and Colombian emeralds continue to soar. Demand is outpacing supply and the auctions of incredible private collections and phenomenal gems have been generating remarkable prices. With Sotheby’s exemplary history of bringing exceptionally rare gems to market, we invite you to join us in making market history. Take advantage of a strong market and consign now. We are currently accepting consignments for Sotheby's international jewelry sales.
  • What factors do you consider when evaluating jewelry?
    Sotheby's specialists take into account several factors when evaluating your bracelet, necklace, earrings, brooch, ring, or other jewelry. General condition, the maker (such as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, or Harry Winston), provenance, and comparable auction prices all play a role in determining the value.
