San Diego Estate Jewelry Buyers - Sell Vintage Diamond Rings and Necklaces

It isn’t difficult to sell estate jewelry in San Diego. A Google search of estate jewelry buyers will bring up dozens of businesses who buy previously-owned fine jewelry, such as old diamond engagement rings, 18k gold necklaces, Art Deco diamond bracelets, vintage designer jewelry, and more. The difficult thing is deciding which San Diego estate jewelry buyer will pay you the most cash for jewelry.

The honest answer is that there isn’t one “best place” to sell estate jewelry in San Diego county. Why? Because every jewelry buyer is knowledgeable about certain estate pieces (i.e. items that they commonly buy and resell), and other pieces that they are less familiar with.

For example, one estate jewelry buyer might be the best place to sell Tiffany jewelry, because they already have private buyers waiting for Tiffany pieces. Therefore, they know what the resale price will be. However, that same San Diego jewelry buyer might not be the best place to sell an unusual vintage cocktail ring, because they have rarely re-sold a similar ring and aren’t sure about its resale value. Therefore, they will make a low offer based on the “melt-down” price.

Capital Jewelry & Loan is one of the best places to sell estate jewelry in San Diego because we are knowledgeable in many types of pre-owned fine jewelry: from vintage Cartier rings and bracelets to diamond engagement rings from today’s most popular jewelry designers, and from Retro gold necklaces to Men’s rings and cufflinks. (See below a gallery of our most recent estate jewelry buys.)

We suggest that you talk with several estate jewelry buyers in San Diego, before making a final decision. Start now by contacting us for a preliminary cash quote.
