When you are ready to sell your Tiffany ring, necklace, brooch, bracelet or earrings, Sotheby’s can help you realise the highest price for your jewelry consignment. The value of your jewels can be pleasantly unexpected, and that’s the excitement of auction.
Founded in New York in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young, Tiffany & Co. captures an essential American elegance in their exemplary gemstones and classic yet fresh designs. A perennial favorite of prominent American families such as the Astors, Vanderbilts, and Whitneys, Tiffany has been the jeweler of choice for first ladies from Mary Todd Lincoln to Jacqueline Kennedy, who wore Tiffany Schlumberger bangles so frequently that they were nicknamed “Jackie bracelets.” Sotheby’s is proud to sell Tiffany jewelry at auction, engaging our network of specialists in major selling centers such as Hong Kong, Geneva, London and New York to provide one-on-one attention to connoisseurs and collectors around the world.12 Dazzling Contemporary Jewels by Tiffany & Co.Launch Slideshow

Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the most popular Tiffany jewelry collections?Art Deco Tiffany jewelry from the 1920s and 30s is highly admired by jewelry connoisseurs as are the house’s modern collections by star designers such as Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti, and Angela Cummings. In particular, exuberant Tiffany animal brooches - from Donald Claflin’s emerald-and sapphire-set seahorses to Jean Schlumberger’s glittering turquoise-studded parrots - are widely adored by collectors for their vibrant colors and playful designs. Additionally, Tiffany engagement rings such as the ‘Lucida’ and ‘Legacy’ collections are high quality and very desirable at auction.
- Is every Tiffany piece marked with a signature?Usually, yes. Modern Tiffany signatures vary widely depending on the collection and designer, but will typically read ‘Tiffany & Co.’ or ‘T & Co.’ Older pieces may have markings that are more difficult to identify; simply send photographs of any inscriptions you see to our specialists, who will use their knowledge of Tiffany workmanship and markings over time to confirm the piece’s authenticity. For diamonds of significant size, Tiffany provides an official certificate and dossier, which is very helpful in establishing the provenance of your piece at auction.
- How much is my Tiffany jewelry worth?Sotheby's specialists have years of experience in valuing Tiffany rings, necklaces, brooches, and other jewelry. When you submit your Tiffany jewelry online, our specialists will consider its general condition, presence of a Tiffany signature, prices achieved at auction for similar pieces, quality of the gemstones, and its history of ownership before determining an appropriate auction estimate.
