How much is my jewelry worth?

How is my jewelry evaluated?
Our expert appraisers take various factors into account when assessing your jewelry, such as its design, mineral and metal content, fashion and artistic value, age, uniqueness and condition. We also consider the jewelry’s maker, country of origin and whether the piece is signed.
Does retail value influence pricing?
While retail value may factor into the offer we present you with, particularly for more contemporary pieces, pricing is primarily based on the composition, condition and desirability of the piece.

I do not live in Skokie, and I don’t want to ship my jewelry. Are there any other options?
We do have appraisers that can visit your home, office or another mutually agreed upon location, such as a bank, hotel or office building, and appraise your jewelry, if the circumstances call for it. We appraisals all over Skokie.
I have an appraisal on my piece. Will you just pay me the appraisal value?
We assess each item on an individual basis, considering its structure, design, condition and overall value. In some instances, we may offer you an amount similar to the pieces appraisal value; however, oftentimes appraisal values are inflated. An appraisal value is the retail amount you would have to pay to replace the piece; it takes into account the profit margin of both the manufacturer and the retailer. As such, appraisal values are often much higher than the pieces actual value.
Does it matter if I have a certificate for my item?
It can. Generally, any certificate by a major accredited lab will add value to your piece. However, over the years, many diamonds and fine jewelry pieces have not been accredited; this lack of a certificate does not devalue the item well assess your pieces value regardless. However, if you have a G.I.A.- or A.G.S.-certified diamond, we may make you a verbal upfront offer on it over the phone, without seeing the diamond in person.
