What Do I Need to Know About Selling Old Jewellery?
Do you have a drawer full of jewellery that you never wear? Are you looking for a good place in Calgary to sell your old, outdated, or unwanted silver, gold or platinum jewellery? Troy Shoppe Jewellers has you covered with plenty of options! Want to sell your gold for money outright? We can do that! Want to use parts of the jewellery and get store credit for the rest? We can do that too! Want to redesign an old piece? You guessed it, we can also do that. Selling jewellery has never been easier!
When you bring your gold and jewellery to us to sell, we sort the items into the different karat weights and examine the quality of any gemstones for value. We will then make you a competitive no obligation offer. Please bring a piece of government issued ID such as a valid drivers license or a passport. If you decide to sell, we will issue you a cheque for the value of your items.
What happens to old jewellery once we buy it?
All items that we purchase from customers are disassembled into their parts. We do not resell any previously owned items, no matter how good the condition is. The gold is sent away to be refined back into its pure metal content, which we reuse. Most gemstones require us to repolish them if there is enough value to do so. For the vast majority of diamonds, recutting and repolishing is needed to meet stringent standards of the type of diamond cut we use in the store today.
It is important to understand that any labour that went into creating the item, or any sentimentality the item may have does not increase the value of the materials. We will purchase the items for the value of the materials. Call today to speak with one of our jewellery experts about selling your jewellery!
