Looking to sell your jewelry in Boca Raton

Jewelry can be sentimental, and often difficult to let go of. Maybe you have an old diamond ring that once belonged to your grandmother. Or perhaps you’ve decided to part with a wedding ring from a prior marriage. No matter the circumstances, our jewelry buyers at Devon's Diamonds & Decor, will allow you all the time and privacy you need to make your decision. We will not try to pressure or persuade you to sell your jewelry; the decision is left entirely up to you!

 

How to Get the Best Price for Your Jewelry

When selling or trading in your unwanted jewelry there are two things you can do to make sure you get as high a price as possible:
  • BRING DOCUMENTS 

If you have any documentation related to your jewelry, make sure to bring it with you when you visit our jewelry store in Boca Raton. Certificates are the most useful because they help our experts establish the quality of your items. Beware though, sometimes appraisals are for retail replacement value and are inflated. Do not be surprised if the offer you receive is significantly less than what's on the appraisal. 

  • CLEAN YOUR JEWELRY

The better your items look, the more attractive they will be to the buyer. This is especially important if you have diamonds or other gemstones because if they are free from any dirt, our experts will be able to establish their quality more accurately. Although at Devon's, we will clean your jewelry anyway, it is good to have your piece cleaned for when it is first viewed.  

 

Sell Fine Jewelry

Receive the most value for your unwanted fine jewelry when you sell to Devon's Diamonds & Decor. We purchase all types of fine jewelry containing diamonds, gold, sterling silver, platinum, precious gemstones and semi-precious gemstones. We would be glad to purchase single pieces or an entire personal collection. Whether it’s designer jewelry or simply an old item you discovered buried in your jewelry box, bring it in to have it authenticated and evaluated! Here at Devon's Diamonds & Decor, we will buy your old or broken jewelry, custom jewelry, vintage/antique jewelry or designer and fine jewelry, engagement and wedding rings, and fine gemstone jewelry. 

Sell Designer Jewelry

Designer jewelry benefits from the years of excellence and marketing that our most favorite brands have invested in. The top brands retain their value at a better rate than ordinary jewelry and at Devon's Diamonds & Decor, we will research each price individually and return as much money to you as possible. If you still have the original box and paperwork that your designer jewelry came with at purchase, it will generally add to the value of your jewelry on the secondhand market.

We Buy Estate, Antique & Vintage Jewelry

Have you found yourself confused about the differences between estate jewelry, antique jewelry, and vintage jewelry? Most preowned fine jewelry falls within one of these categories, but how do you identify which category your items belong to? Here is a quick breakdown to help you better understand the different kinds of jewelry you may be interested in selling at Devon's Diamonds & Decor. 

    

Sell Estate Jewelry

  • Estate jewelry - this is somewhat of an umbrella term for all pre-owned jewelry whether it is antique or vintage – it’s any jewelry that is not new.  Oftentimes, estate jewelry is sold as part of the estate of someone who is deceased. This can sometimes be a collection of items, or individual pieces.

    Family heirlooms, particularly jewelry, can be incredibly valuable depending on their time period, condition, rarity and other factors. Estate vintage rings have become popular items owing to their uniqueness and beautiful craftsmanship. At Devon's Diamonds & Decor, we buy estates of fine jewelry from every era. We'll buy the gems of the Georgian, Victorian, Art Nouveau, the Edwardian, Art Deco and the Retro periods. To get the best price for your valuables, sell your estate jewelry in Boca Raton at Devon's Diamonds & Decor.


Sell Antique Jewelry

  • Antique jewelry - for an item to be considered antique, it must be 100 years old or more. These pieces are usually handed down through generations of relatives and are often unique and one-of-a-kind. Antique jewelry might have been created during particular eras such as Victorian jewelry, Art Deco jewelry, Art Nouveau jewelry, and more. This results in differences in styles, values, prominent manufacturers and collectability of pieces. The worth of a piece cannot always be determined by its beauty; in fact, many antique pieces that people find gaudy or out of style are worth far more than they appear. That’s why it’s best to sell antique pieces to an expert in the industry. At Devon's Diamonds & Decor, we can provide you with an accurate estimate of how much a piece is worth before purchasing them from you. If you’ve got antique earrings, necklaces, bracelets, chains, rings, and more, stop by our Boca Raton jewelry store today.

 

Sell Vintage Jewelry

  • Vintage jewelry - this is a term used to classify jewelry items that are 20 years or older but not over 100 years old (because then that would make it an antique). These pieces are typically pre-owned and can be characterized by the period from which they originated. There are several factors to be considered when determining the value of your vintage fine jewelry including: condition, rarity, history, period significance, and demand. Some vintage jewelry was created in particular eras such as Retro jewelry, Mid-Century jewelry, and Modern jewelry. Stop by our jewelry store in Boca Raton and have our experts take a look at your vintage jewelry. 

 

DIFFERENT ERAS OF FINE JEWELRY

At Devon's Diamonds & Decor, we buy fine jewelry from every era such as:

  • Georgian Jewelry

(Circa 1714-1837) Distinct characteristics of Georgian era jewelry include flower, ribbon, feather, and foliage motifs. These pieces are all hand made and feature intricate metal work.
  • Victorian Jewelry

(Circa 1837-1901) Victorian era jewelry was crafted during an age known as the Romantic Period. Therefore, it is not surprising that many of these pieces are shaped as hearts, arrows, and love knots. These jewels were often crafted from 18k gold and usually featured gemstones such as agate, diamond, emerald, and garnet.
  • Art Nouveau Jewelry 

(Circa early 1890’s-1910) Art Nouveau pieces were crafted more uniquely than the jewelry of other eras. These pieces were often made of materials such as animal horns, including ivory. They frequently featured depictions of nude women, which was rather risqué for the time period. There was not a great deal of focus on gemstones but rather on other details.
  • Edwardian Jewelry 

(Circa 1901-1915) Edwardian era designs closely resembled eighteenth-century jewelry. Pieces from this era emphasized flowing, graceful lines making them very feminine. Common Edwardian motifs include florals, lace, ribbons, bows, and other curved designs.
  • Art Deco Jewelry

(Circa 1920-1935) Most pieces from the Art Deco era were made from white gold or platinum as the popularity of yellow gold declined. These special pieces feature distinct geometric designs and filigree details commonly seen in the movie The Great Gatsby.
  • Retro Jewelry

(Circa 1940-1950) Retro jewelry pieces were designed during a period of transition, namely World War II. These events inspired the design of these jewelry pieces, such as wartime restrictions on platinum. Most retro pieces were fashioned from yellow or rose gold. The retro period also saw brooches become a popular addition to women’s fashion.
  • Modern Jewelry 

(Circa 1950’s-present) Advances in technology have enabled jewelers to create pieces using a variety of different materials that were previously unconventional and/or unpliable. Many pieces often still feature traditional designs but with unique details and exquisite gems, particularly the diamond.
