know your jewelry's worth

Estate Jewelry Appraisal near me.

If you live in Miami and are looking to find out how much your antique or estate jewelry is worth, a jewelry appraisal is the best way to establish its market value and Dover Jewelry & Diamonds offers world-class jewelry appraisal services.

Do you have a collection of high-end or high-value jewelry pieces? Would you like to determine its value for estate planning purposes, or would you like to sell one or two individual pieces for extra cash?  Have you ever thought, How can I sell my diamond ring online? Perhaps you need to adjust an existing insurance policy so that your jewelry’s current value is more accurately reflected.  Whatever the reason, Dover places the highest importance on protecting the integrity of the appraisal process, every step of the way.

Selling gold jewelry

  • Separate your gold by its karat weight: This will not only help you begin to assess its value, but it can point out items that are not even gold. Your first task is to learn how to tell if gold is real.
  • Find out how much fine gold your jewelry contains: The best indicator of this is the hallmark, which will normally show 375, 585, 750, or 916.
  • Determine the Gram Weight of Your Gold: Determining the weight of your scrap gold will help you to calculate its base value. This doesn’t necessarily represent the price you will get, but it’s good to have this figure as a reference when starting negotiations and obtaining a gold jewelry appraisal.

The first step when selling your jewelry is going to a qualified jewelry appraiser that has the market experience and recognition to perform such a service. A qualified jewelry appraisal first aims at identifying the main characteristics of the antique jewelry item and then looks to assign its right market value, in case the piece is put to sale later on or is part of a trade-in or trade-up.

Selling diamond jewelry

  • Know your pieces: The first step to properly selling your jewelry is knowing exactly what kind of pieces you own. Do your own jewelry research regarding the time period, style, design, and stone quality of your pieces, and always be aware of any cuts and scratches they might have.
  • Get certifications: If you don’t have a GIA Certification, you won’t be considered certifiable, but if you do have one, then it will raise the value of your diamond.
  • Do your own research: Look for prices of similar pieces on eBay (DoverJewelry on eBay) and antique jewelry stores and factor in a discount for your pre-worn jewel.
