Why Selling Estate Jewelry to Specialized Online Estate Jewelry Buyers is Your Best Option

When it comes to selling your estate and/or antique jewelry, there are several options available. However, while some of these alternatives may seem attractive at first, they can come with potential downsides that make selling to a specialized online buyer within the jewelry industry the best option.

Let’s dive in.

Specialized online buyers vs selling on consignment

Selling your estate jewelry to a specialized online buyer like White Pine is the best option if you're looking for a quick and hassle-free process that ensures you receive a fair and competitive offer.

While selling on consignment may seem like a good choice, it can come with risks such as extended timeframes, fees, and no guaranteed sale.

With an experienced buyer like White Pine, you don't have to worry about these downsides, as you'll receive an immediate offer and can trust in our expertise to assess the true value of your jewelry.


Specialized online buyers vs selling to an auction

Selling via an auction is another option that interests some consumers. However, it's important to note that auctions can come with potential downsides, such as high fees and uncertain sale prices.

On the other hand, selling to a specialized online buyer offers a straightforward and efficient process, with no hidden fees and a clear understanding of the value of your items. By choosing a reputable buyer, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’ll receive a fair and competitive offer for your estate jewelry and a much quicker process.


Specialized online buyers vs selling on an online marketplace

You may have also thought about taking your estate jewelry to Ebay, Etsy, or another online marketplace. Though this may seem like a simple way to sell your jewelry, sellers often don’t receive a fair price when selling on online marketplaces. Plus, the process is usually time-consuming and stressful if you get a difficult buyer (or worse – a scammer).

On the flip side, when you sell to a certified diamond jewelry buyer like White Pine, you can rest assured that you'll receive a fair price for your jewelry and that the transaction will be safe, secure,hassle-free and fast.


Specialized online buyers vs selling to your local jewelry store or pawnshop

Another option is to sell your estate, antique, and vintage jewelry to your local jewelry store. While this may seem like a convenient alternative, you often won’t get the best bang for your buck necessarily because your local jeweler often only has a handle on local pricing and has a local market for your pieces, meaning you could miss out on better offers from national online buyers.

When you sell online to a specialized online buyer, you’ll often get more competitive offers because of their expertise to accurately value and assess your estate or antique jewelry and understand the resale value/market value at the national level.



Selling estate jewelry on consignment, at an auction, on an online marketplace, or to your local jewelry stores can result in:

  • Lower sale prices
  • Much longer wait times
  • Higher fees or commissions

Selling your estate jewelry to a certified buyer can provide you with:

  • Competitive offers
  • Fast & safe transactions
  • No hidden fees

  • How do I authenticate my estate jewelry before selling it?

    Authenticating estate jewelry involves verifying its quality, condition, and origin – which can be time-consuming and difficult for the average seller. A certified appraiser or gemologist can help you authenticate your jewelry and provide a detailed report outlining its characteristics, including metal type, gemstone quality, and hallmark. If a report is not important to you, you can have a buyer do the exact same job, as well as make you an offer. Buyers won’t offer on inauthentic items.
