How much is my jewelry worth?

We can appraise your jewelry and will provide you with an instant cash or check offer.

How will my jewelry be evaluated?

Our expert appraisers take various factors into account when assessing your jewelry such as its design, mineral and metal content, fashion, artistic value, age, uniqueness, and condition.

Does the retail value influence pricing?

Retail value may factor into the offer we make you. Our offer will be based on the composition, condition, and desirability of the piece.

Can I visit your coin shop?

Absolutely! Oakton Coins & Collectibles is conveniently located at the corner of Kenton and Oakton in the heart of Skokie. It is easily accessible to Skokie residents. If you’re in the Chicago area, Skokie is a convenient place to have your items appraised in person. Complimentary parking is available.

How will I know that you are giving me the best price for my jewelry?

We encourage our clients to get offers from other jewelry buyers before visiting. We analyze each piece of jewelry individually and only offer fair, high-value prices. All our offers are cash offers, meaning we pay you cash (or check) immediately for your piece. Make sure any other offers you get are also cash offers.

How is Oakton Coins & Collectibles different from a pawn shop?

We are very different from a pawn shop because we pay more for fine jewelry and diamonds. Oakton Coins specializes in high-value items from a more sophisticated clientele. 

Can I get more money by selling my jewelry to an auction house?

While auction houses are reputable arenas in which to sell your fine jewelry, expect to pay substantial fees and wait a while before receiving payment. Auction houses usually charge fees regardless of whether your item sells. If your item does sell, the entire process can take up to six months or more.

Do you buy gold?

Yes, of course. Oakton Coins & Collectibles is known for giving the highest payout for gold. We buy anything gold, regardless of its condition.

Do you purchase watches?

We purchase fine watches, pocket watches, and designer watches.
