What Determines the Appraisal Value and who buys Estate Jewelry?
There are a number of different factors that buyers look for when they want to purchase estate jewelry. When we do a Victorian jewelry appraisal, we will look at the carat value and the weight of the stones to determine their value in today’s market. Of course, you don’t want to remove these stones and sell them individually, which is why this is just the starting point.
An art Deco jewelry appraiser examines the style of the piece, its age, and what time period it came from. Some styles are simply more popular and will have a higher value than others. The designer plays a part in this, too. Finally, estate jewelry buyers are often looking for pieces in outstanding condition. While pieces by certain designers will always sell well, you’ll get the best prices if you have jewelry in great condition. We help you get the best price possible, when looking up the market value of Estate jewelry & Antique jewelry. We also buy at the best prices and offer the option to have pieces auctioned if needed for collectors and whole estates.
Should I Sell Estate Jewelry to a Antique Dealer or to Our Auction Service?
It really depends on the size of an estate. Selling a large amount of jewelry or entire estates is much easier through an auction. Our 50+ years of experience in auctioning services can assist you with liquidating any inherited collection or family dispersal all at once. Selling to Antique buyers often means selling one piece at a time, so it can take a while to sell everything. So, it’s better go with an established Auction Service provider like us.
