Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy new jewelry, and that’s kind of the same thing, right? But you know what makes buying new sparkle even sweeter? Selling your old designs you no longer love for cash to increase your new jewelry budget! We buy a lot of jewelry – in fact we’re best known in Orange County for our “Previously Enjoyed” collection, and in our experience, jewelry that you are interested in selling falls into one of three camps:
Out of Style Sparkle
When you’re digging through your jewelry box, we bet you’ll find at least one design that is still as beautiful as the day you bought it, but you no longer wear, either because it’s not on-trend at the moment or your own personal style has changed. Why not lead these designs to a new home and make some extra cash for jewelry you WILL be excited about wearing? And don’t worry if your design is out of date – our Master Jewelers are experts at redesigning jewelry for today’s trends, so you’ll still get top dollar. We also sell to other dealers across the nation who have a market for pieces which might not currently be “hot” in California.
Bent, Broken, or Busted Bracelets, Rings, Necklaces, Earrings & Watches
We’ve all got those designs that have been pushed to the back of our jewelry boxes because they are unwearable in one way or another. Maybe the clasp on an old bracelet is broken, or a ring needs to be resized. While we’d be more than happy to repair these items for you, if you’ve had jewelry in this position for over a year and haven’t come to see us for a repair yet, you will likely get more enjoyment out of the cash from selling it!
Make Room for New Memories
Sometimes you have jewelry or a watch that’s still stylish and in great condition, but it holds not so great memories. Perhaps it was given to you by a person who’s no longer in your life or you wore it during a particularly trying time. Instead of allowing these memories to take up space in your mind and your jewelry box, set them free by selling them to The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest. You’ll feel great knowing you’ve moved on and you’ll make room, and cash, to stock up on new jewelry and memories.
Not Sure if We’ll Buy Your Jewelry or Watch?
One of the most common questions we receive is if we’ll buy a specific jewelry design or collection and we’re happy to report that most of the time, the answer is YES! We pay top dollar for a wide array of jewelry, watches, and more, including:
- Gold, Platinum, & Silver
- Fine Jewelry
- Designer Jewelry, particularly gold and silver fashion designs from Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels, David Yurman, Judith Ripka, John Hardy and the like
- Diamonds, both loose and in a setting
- Fine Watches, including Rolex, Michele, Omega, Cartier, and Tag Heuer
- Rare & Antique Watches
- Sterling Silver Hollowware & Flatware
- Gold Coins & Silver American Coins
- Dental Gold
That being said, to make you our best possible offer, we do need to see your items in person. We recommend bringing any documentation and original packaging you have for your designs with you to the store as well. Appointments are not necessary, but if you have additional questions or would like to confirm when our Orange County team will be buying, we welcome you to reach out to us!
