We contacted Carl to sell approximately 25 pieces of estate jewelry. He was extremely responsive and followed up the same day. His secretary was fantastic getting us an appointment read more quickly. Carl spent a long time explaining the pricing, appraisals, value, and process and made us feel very comfortable selling to him. We are extremely pleased with the entire experience and will definitely recommend him to others!
Fastest and most honest experience by far. I tried selling my old wedding ring with other jewelry buyers last year but the process was so confusing and extensive I gave up. I found read more these guys and a few other sites online last weekend and decided to give it another shot. Carl and his team purchased my ring, received my shipment and sent the money (which was the highest and only definitive offer out of anyone) to my account all in less than 4 business days. The communication was thorough, timely, and responsive every step of the way.
I was very happy with the service I received with this company and Paula made it very easy for me to follow all directions!!! I would definitely do business here again and recommend read more them to my friends!!!....Mickie
I worked with Paula the most and she was great. Very patient, very kind; answered all my many questions. Received agreed upon payment extremely fast, as promised. It is scary to send read more jewelry in the mail, but everything worked as I was told it would. I would do this again.
Exceedingly pleased and impressed with this service. I worked with Paula who is professional, personal, and accountable. Everything happened as said from beginning to end, which was read more hard to believe at first. I re-read reviews even after I boxed up my items because of the anxiety! Paula helped normalize a sentimental event and held my trust throughout the whole process (which was actually very fast and exactly to description). Highly recommended and would use again without hesitation. Thank you Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers, especially Paula!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Extremely professional, kind, and intelligent staff. I felt confident selling my diamond ring because Paula and Jackie were honest, sincere, and communicative and made the process easy. I was indecisive because of the sentimental attachment to the ring but they were very patient and understanding. They didn’t just give me the quote, they answered all my questions and helped me to understand the specific reasons for the value of the diamond. I needed the money for medical bills for my daughter and it was nice to deal with people who I felt really work hard at, and care about getting the best price possible for the customer.
I sold a diamond engagement ring and a wedding ring. Paula was exceptional to work with. She answered all of my questions and assuaged any concerns that I had. I know the price I got was fair, as I had a prior gemologist look at the rings, but I was not comfortable dealing with that outfit for reasons other than the price.
I am comfortable with my decision to sell my engagement ring, and I know I got the best offer I could get at this time. I highly recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. Thank you, Paula, for all the time you spent with me. You have immense patience and empathy.
Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers are good as it gets. Alex is a true professional who understands the importance of attention to detail. I was hesitant at first to sell my Rolex to a business where I would have to ship my valuable time piece in advance of payment, but Alex reassured me of the process and offered excellent communication STEP BY STEP. Carl exceeded my expectations in standing by their initial appraisal and I simply could not be happier with the entire process timeline (48hrs start to finish). If I could give them 6 stars instead of 5 I would.
I inherited a vintage Rolex. About 40 years old. Though I didn’t have the original paperwork or box, DEJB were open and interested in working with me. Paula Dabney was EASY, accommodating, knowledgeable and comforting during the process. The initial price she quoted me was the price we ultimately agreed on after inspection. The process was quick and efficient and any concerns or questions I had were answered promptly all along the way. I’d recommend checking out these folks if you’re interested in selling watches and jewelry.
Wonderful service! Paula made the selling process so easy for me from beginning to end. I live out-of-state, and she walked me through, step-by-step, exactly what to do to work with Diamond Estate to sell my diamonds. The process was effortless on my part! The owner gave me an excellent price. Paula was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with Diamond Estate.
Working with Carl was probably one of the most straight forward, uncomplicated transactions I've experienced. After leaving a voicemail I received a prompt text and then a call where Carl clearly explained the process. I immediately felt confident that I was working with the right buyer to sell my Rolex. After sending clear pictures of the timepiece, Carl followed up with a phone call and quoted me a very competitive price. We agreed to the deal, I sent the timepiece fully insured through FedEx at his cost and after he had confirmed receipt and saw the timepiece he wired the money directly to my bank account. I highly recommend working with Carl. He's a man of his word and runs a top notch business.
When deciding to sell a special piece of jewelry, especially when you are sentimentally attached to it, it is very difficult to part with it. Then I realized that I would never wear it and keeping it in a box for years and years was useless. So I “made the call” to Lori after doing a little background reading of Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. I was apprehensive about sending jewelry through the mail but it went very well and I was pleasantly surprised. Am I sure I received the best price? I have no way of knowing, but I was happy with what they offered and I am satisfied. I will no doubt use their services again.
We had a 14 carat diamond and were nervous of mailing it out of state. We were reassured from the beginning of the easy process, but we decided to fly out to California to meet the people at Diamond Estate. From the very beginning we were met with professionalism and treated very well. After given a reasonable quote, we decided to get a GIA certificate for the diamond just to be sure what it was. Jackie drove us all over the place to different jewelers to look at it as well as the GIA lab. She spent a whole day making us feel at ease. Jackie took us around fully knowing that we could go with other people’s offers and still chauffeured us to each place. In the end we found exactly what we are looking for with the Help of Carl and Jackie. Great experience for 2 girls from Colorado. I would recommend them to anyone.
I needed to sell a 2 carat diamond and based on the excellent reviews, I decided to contact Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. I sent an email with the GIA report details and within 30 minutes I had a response from Paula with an estimated offer. After deciding to move forward, Paula emailed me shipping instructions and a prepaid FedEx label. I shipped my diamond and everything went incredibly smoothly. Paula, the buying consultant with whom I worked, was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. I am absolutely thrilled with my experience and would recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to anyone looking to work with true professionals.

Diamond Estate Jewelry offered the best cash price for my watch; $300 more than the local place I talked to. And the wire transfer was very simple and smooth. Recommend them and would use them again
After reading many of the reviews about Diamond Estate on the internet, I decided to take the plunge and contact them about a vintage Rolex watch that belonged to my father and had been tucked away for about 40 years. They responded immediately and walked me through a very simple process to evaluate the watch and arrive at a fair price. The entire transaction was very positive, and I am really glad I discovered this company. I would definitely recommend them and will certainly do business with them in the future if I have any other items of value to sell.
I appreciated their professionalism and responsiveness to me. I have been deciding if I want to sell my watch. Paula kept in contact, explained the process to me and followed up with me each step of the way. And it was fast! I highly recommend using them if your deciding to sell some of your high end jewelry.
Thank you so much Paula for your professional handling of my heirloom diamond. When we first talked on the phone, your totally professional and knowledgeable demeanor regarding the diamond business assuaged any trepidation I had about sending my diamond. I was impressed with the way you shopped my diamond to get me the best possible price. When we agreed on the price the money was wired to my account within the hour. Well done! I will not hesitate to recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to my friends and will tell them to ask for you by name!
Absolutely seamless sale of a two tone Rolex Submariner. The buy bid was honored, no changing of bid after receiving the watch. As far as I am concerned this is the only place to sell your jewelry and watches. Paula was super professional and easy to do business with. I was a little apprehensive, but after reading all of the reviews, I felt confident, and so should you.
I had a timepiece that I was looking to sell and searched high and low to find a reputable dealer to appraise the piece and would offer a fair price. I came Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers online. At first I was hesitant to try an online service for this type of transaction but let me tell you, they were great. Paula helped me through the process and just as their website describes, it is a safe and secure method for this type transaction. It was a very smooth, seamless transaction…and the price was fair. I hope this review will allay any concerns people may have. I was hesitant at first, but now they will be my go-to people for this type of service in the future. Thanks again Paula for great customer-centric service.
I reached out to Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to sell my husband’s Rolex. Lori was very nice, knowledgeable, & inspired trust. Most importantly to me, there was absolutely no pressure to proceed—I felt very comfortable with the pace of the process. Lori gave me an estimated range of what the watch would be worth, subject to adjustment based on their appraisal once their buyer was able to examine it. She provided all details and the Fed Ex labels for shipping the watch—it was not hard and I was fully confident it would go without a snag. Lori called to let me know as soon as the watch arrived. The next day it was appraised by their buyer and Lori called to let me know the adjusted price. They dealt fairly with me, so I accepted and wire transfer was made same day to my bank account. Nicely done, Lori!
While selling an engagement ring is never an emotionally fun experience, it was finally time to give it a new life. Working with Paula made the process so much easier. She is very professional and responsive, and showed a lot of empathy when I got misty-eyed on the phone. While I’ll admit to having been nervous about shipping my engagement ring off based on a few emails, the process went very smoothly. I was provided with an insured shipping label and instructions for packaging. I received a reasonable offer for my ring the day it arrived at their store. The transaction was settled exactly as agreed, and within hours of my giving final word. There is absolutely nothing to be concerned about in dealing with Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers via the web, and I would gladly use them again.
I can’t express how much Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers’ employees will go to bat for you. Over a period of 2 weeks working with them on a piece of jewelry and a watch, I truly felt they understood the way my wife and I felt about those two pieces. I especially want to thank Paula and Jacqueline for going above and beyond to get us the cash to make my wife’s dreams come true. Thanks again to Paula and Jacqueline for a job well done.
I worked with Paula the most and she was great. Very patient, very kind; answered all my many questions. Received agreed upon payment extremely fast, as promised. It is scary to send jewelry in the mail, but everything worked as I was told it would. I would do this again.
I’m so happy that I found this amazing jeweler! The easiest and fastest transaction I’ve had. I sold my Cartier Roadster to them in 24 hours I had the money wired into my account. They are pleasant and honest people who will take good care of you! I highly recommend them!
Let me tell you, Paula was the best she helped me so much with my fathers watches. Money was put in my account as soon as she got the watches. I would recommend this place always thanks for such great service.
I was very happy with the service I received with this company and Paula made it very easy for me to follow all directions!!! I would definitely do business here again and recommend them to my friends!!!....Mickie
Paula was so great to work with! Very professional, and they offered the best price for my Rolex GMT II (over 2 other watch companies that buy used time pieces). No bait and switch here—take good photos of what you are selling and give them as much detail as you can so they can offer you the correct amount to start with. No surprises. They paid exactly what I was offered. Great experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone. Thank you!

I had a wonderful experience selling them my diamond ring. Paula was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely do business with them again.
I had never sold anything online before, so was a little nervous about selling my Rolex. Based on Yelp reviews, I visited DEJB’s website and was pretty impressed. Worked with Paula to text some pics and got an estimate within hours. I got estimates from three other places and DEJB was right in line with two others, but was a touch higher. Based on the great customer service, I went with DEJB. Once I said I was in, Paula got me the prepaid, secure, insured shipping information within hours. Once received, they let me know my Rolex was as described and wired the full amount immediately. What else can I say? Fast, secure, friendly, fair – what more can you ask?
This company was excellent to deal with and very fair on their offer. Paula Dabney took care of my transaction and kept me informed of everything. The money was wired to me within an hour after the received my watch. I highly recommend this company.
My name is Ron Hazel and I recently completed some business with Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. I found them to be very professional and straight forward. Paula Dabney did exactly what she said she would do and precisely when she said she would do it. She made it easy to understand the value of my jewelry. In this uncertain world we live in it’s nice to work with a company that is trustworthy and expedient.
