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.
Selling your estate jewelry to a specialized online buyer 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.
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.
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.
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.

It's important to keep in mind that demand for specific types of estate jewelry can sometimes change over time, so it's a good idea to do your research and work with a reputable buyer who can help guide you towards the most in-demand pieces at the moment.
Before selling your estate jewelry, it’s important to know at least some information about your pieces, the reputation and experience of the buyer you’re selling to, any potential fees or commissions associated with the sale, and the different selling options available to you.
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 can do the exact the same job, as well as make you an offer. Buyers won’t offer on inauthentic items.
Authenticating your estate jewelry will help you get a fair price and ensure to potential buyers you’re selling a genuine piece. Inaccurate or false claims about the authenticity of your fine jewelry can result in legal and financial consequences.
