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.
