Sell Antique Jewelry, Diamond Engagement Rings, Necklaces, Brooches in San Diego, CA

Selling antique jewelry in San Diego is pretty easy. Just do a quick Google search of San Diego jewelry buyers and you’ll find lots of jewelry stores and pawn shops who buy antique diamond engagement rings, antique gold wedding bands, and other antique jewelry. The tough part is trying to figure which one of these San Diego estate jewelers is the best place to sell your antique jewelry.

To be honest, there actually isn’t one best place to sell antique jewelry in San Diego, CA. The reason is that it all depends on the piece of antique jewelry you are selling, and your jewelry buyer’s experience with reselling that particular kind of item.

For example, one buyer might be the best place to sell an Edwardian engagement ring, because they have resold several similar Edwardian diamond rings recently, and are confident with a higher cash offer. However, that same San Diego jewelry buyer may not be the best place to sell a Victorian diamond brooch, because they have rarely (or never) re-sold a similar brooch, and thus have to make a low-ball offer based solely on the precious metal meltdown price and loose diamond value.

Capital Jewelry & Loan is among the best places to sell antique jewelry in San Diego because we regularly buy and resell many types of antique jewelry: from antique diamond solitaire rings and 18k wedding bands made during the Edwardian period to Victoria era brooches and diamond pins, as well as antique signet rings, and Georgian & Art Nouveau jewelry (Scroll down to view our updated gallery of recent antique jewelry buys.)
