Tips for Selling Your Diamonds & Jewelry

Scott Gold Buying Tips

Scott King, Fifth Generation Owner of King Jewelers, Offers Expert Advice on Selling Your Diamonds & Jewelry

Are you intimidated by the thought of selling your family heirlooms? Although the process is filled with emotion and sentiment, an informed consumer can navigate the process easily with the help of an expert’s advice.
Scott King, a prominent 5th generation expert estate jeweler and diamond buyer, runs the family business which has expanded to include two luxury stores. King Jewelers has been well known in South Florida for over 105 years, and their newer location in Nashville, Tennessee has become a must-see destination in the Central South. Today, we asked Scott to share his best tips for individuals looking to sell their jewelry, diamonds, and watches, but aren’t sure where to start.

Deal With Someone You Can Trust

It can be daunting to find a jeweler that you can trust with your family heirlooms. When searching for a trustworthy jeweler, look for well-established businesses that carry the most prestigious brands in the industry, such as Rolex, Cartier, Chopard, and Harry Winston. Scott and his family are well known in the industry for their integrity, knowledge, award-winning customer service, and value. King Jewelers is also a distinguished member of the Jewelers of America 100 Club because of their continuous A+ rating in the jewelry industry for over 105 years.

Knowledge is Power

“It is important to get an evaluation on your treasures from more than one expert in the field,” says Scott King. “Be sure to deal with a reputable person in the jewelry industry who is familiar with the business of buying and selling estates, fine diamonds, and watches. Work with jewelers who do not need a middleman to evaluate or purchase your jewelry. The more people involved in your sale, the less money for you!” At King Jewelers, we don’t need a middleman, so the consumer always receives the highest price for their gold, diamonds, watches, and fine jewelry. The Miami Herald recently conducted an investigative report on retail jewelry store buyers and said “King Jewelers pays the highest prices!”

Consider Trading Old for New

When considering a new purchase it is beneficial to ask the jeweler to consider a trade. The jeweler has an added incentive to give you a better deal and you only have to pay sales tax between the trade and the new item being purchased. In the event your trade is higher than your new purchase, there is no sales tax and you will receive the difference back in cash.
If you can keep these tips in mind, the process of selling your diamonds, jewelry, and watches will be much easier and more profitable!
