How to Sell Jewelry – The Changing Times
Historically, selling one’s jewelry simply wasn’t done. Even as recently as a generation ago, the thought of a woman selling some of her jewelry, or more precisely for the time, having to sell some of her jewelry, implied nearly unfathomable financial difficulties.
Women are now selling jewelry for a variety of reasons, and not simply extra money.
At that time, typical diamond purchases were usually so-called “life occasion” jewelry, made of higher quality stones that marked an anniversary, a birthday, or significant milestone in a woman’s life. When an influx of smaller, more affordable diamonds became available in the 1980s, some diamond jewelry became both less expensive and, in some ways, trendy.
As times and fashions have changes, more and more women are selling their fine jewelry for cash, for a variety of reasons. While some of the reasons have to do with simple economics, there are other considerations as well, from the demands of fashion to the changing nature of women’s relationships with jewelry.
Sell Jewelry – Reason #1
It’s Just Another Liquid Asset
An Art Deco Diamond Bracelet Recently Bought By Diamond Estate
Perhaps the simplest explanation for why more women are choosing to sell old jewelry is economic: jewelry is viewed more today as simply another asset among many, and like any asset, it can be liquidated when conditions warrant. This is especially true of inherited jewelry. With the price of gold climbing so dramatically over the last decade, many women’s perceptions about that old brooch or earrings their grandmother wore are changing.
No longer viewed as an archaic, unwearable heirloom, that old piece is now easily converted to cash. Once liquidated, women are using that newfound cash for all kinds of purposes, like taking a long overdue vacation, making a college tuition payment, adopting a more contemporary jewelry look, or even paying down some old debt.
The market for estate jewelry is strong today, especially for larger diamonds. Some professional investors are even including estate jewelry, along with real estate and fine art, as part of a well-diversified portfolio. Branded jewelry in particular, like Cartier, Tiffany, or Harry Winston, continues to appreciate faster than the value of the precious metals and stones themselves.
Sell Jewelry – Reason #2
It’s NOT Just Another Liquid Asset

Beyond the simple economics of why women sell their jewelry is a complex relationship between the jewelry items, memories, experiences, and ultimately, happiness. As the market has grown for selling pre-owned fine jewelry, any number of options have sprung up, from local jewelry stores and pawn shops to full service, dedicated buyers of estate jewelry.
At Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers, we offer a simple and discreet service to women looking to pare down their jewelry assets — selling diamond rings and other pieces for the best possible price. Our owner Carl Blackburn has been in the business of purchasing estate jewelry since the 1980s, and has seen the market grow, but notes some recent changes outside the realm of dollars and cents.
Carl has observed that many women are now selling their jewelry for self-discovery and personal growth. The same jewelry box that holds treasured memories and pieces that mark milestones in life can also contain hidden resentments and unresolved emotions — all of which can impede continued growth and happiness.
How to Sell Jewelry by Smartsizing

Knowing which jewelry items to keep is as important as knowing which ones you can part with. When considering downsizing or “smartsizing” a jewelry collection, Diamond Estate recommends a careful assessment of the fine jewelry you own and what it means in your life today, both personally and professionally.
Jewelry from a past marriage or relationship can evoke a mixture of emotions, and result in a kind of dissonance or stagnation in one’s life’s journey. Letting go of an old engagement ring can be powerfully liberating in many ways.
Any inventory of your jewelry box will necessitate an inventory or your personal emotions and the current state of your spirit as well. Perhaps your collection includes some fashion-driven designer jewelry. These pieces tend to be worn by professional women as “status” pieces, and often lose their appeal as career status and relationships change.
As you age and mature, the your personal style may no longer match the style of jewelry you once owned.
A careful examination of what you currently wear might shed light on which pieces to let go. As you age and mature, the style of the person you are currently might not match the style of earrings, necklaces or bracelets you own from as recently as a few years ago.
Consider that the jewelry you wear says quite a bit about your sense of self-worth or self-confidence, and that what you wear and how you wear it can greatly affect the way people experience you. As you carefully consider all the items in your collection, It is likely that you will find certain pieces in your jewelry box that do not reflect the kind of person you have become, or may want to become.
As you determine which jewelry items you can place in the “sell pile,” remember that the arc of a life’s journey is one of evolution, in which each of us continues to grow. Think of your personal goals, and be aware that the value stored in your jewelry might be better utilized in attaining dreams and aspirations for the future.
Am I Ready to Sell My Jewelry?

After you have determined which jewelry items you wish to sell, take a deep breath and make sure you’re really ready — rash decisions can be lamented later on. When you are ready, there are any number of businesses ready to help you sell your portable luxury assets.
The best advice here is work with a buyer who has a strong reputation, is registered with the Better Business Bureau, and is willing to help you with a free estimate.
Educate yourself about the market, contact a few buyers who meet this criteria, and choose the business you’re most comfortable with. The decision to smartsize your jewelry collection should be a liberating one, and the right buyer will help you feel good about the entire process.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of selling your jewelry, please contact Diamond Estate. We enjoy talking with our clients about their jewelry and how much your items are worth — regardless of whether or not you decide to sell your jewelry to us.
