We Offer Trusted Verbal Appraisals for All Your Gold, Silver, and Platinum Jewelry

When you need a verbal appraisal, or valuation, on your jewelry or inherited heirloom pieces, the highly trained experts at Southwest Jewelry Buyers provide verbal appraisals to determine the actual market value of your diamonds, gold, silver, platinum, and precious gemstones.

Don’t Be Fooled by Exaggerated Retail Appraisals

Retail appraisals are meant to account for manufacturers suggested retail price, which is usually quite a dramatic difference from its current market value. Retail jewelry often has some of the highest markups — as much as 800% (or more) of the actual value of your ring, bracelet, necklace, or other piece. That’s because a retail appraisal also considers labor, manufacturing, and overhead expenses in addition to the value of the gold, silver, and gemstones.

Since there are no government regulations for appraising jewelry, it’s often difficult to know the true value of your items based solely on a retail appraisal. That’s where Southwest Jewelry Buyers comes in. We can provide you with the true value of your diamonds, gold, platinum, and silver pieces based on the current market value of precious metals and gemstones.

Our Appraisers Have the Highest Credentials in the Business

Each of our jewelry appraisers at SWJB has attended classes and passed the rigorous standards of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Our skilled appraisers weigh your jewelry, examine it carefully, and assign a fair market value based on these strict guidelines.

After the appraisal, we make you a cash offer, if you’d like to sell. If not, there’s no pressure and no obligation, and you walk away knowing exactly what your jewelry is worth, should you decide to sell, or if it becomes lost or damaged.

We Love Making Our Clients Happy

In addition to being highly-skilled in the art of jewelry appraisals, we’re also recognized for our consistently exceptional customer service. We make every effort to live up to our prestigious A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, so every client we conduct an appraisal for has the best experience possible.

Locally, Southwest Jewelry Buyers was also awarded the Spectrum Award for Best Customer Service from City Beat News. So, in addition to the most accurate appraisals in the business, you can rest assured you’re doing business with a company that operates with the highest standards of ethics and honesty. We’ve been living up to these high principles for our customers in Scottsdale, Phoenix, and the Valley since 2000, and continue to do so every day.

When you’re ready to come to see us for an accurate, fair market value, no-obligation appraisal for your gold rings, bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry, give us a call 480-773-8004. Or, you can contact us here to schedule a confidential appointment. We look forward to meeting with you.

We got a really lowball offer from another gold buyer in town. Eric tested all of our jewelry right in front of us, paid us the most, and it was a truly professional experience. We have sent in many family members.
Hello! Just writing a quick note to thank you for buying our gold. We shopped it around two a few places and you were by far the highest paying. I've already sent 3 friends to you just FYI.
We sent a large amount of jewelry to one of those internet sites claiming to pay top dollar. They made us a ridiculously low offer, and charged us fees + shipping to get our jewelry back. Eric's offer was over double what they offered and it was risk free and...
Eric is one of the nicest and most honorable people I have ever met. He always pays on time and it is always a pleasure to do business with him. I look forward to future business!

I was going to send my gold off to *********.com. They sent me a gold pack, but I felt uncomfortable with only $100 insurance on the package. I decided to find a local company, and came across SW Jewelry Buyers. I thought I had about $200 of gold. My check...
I met with two other dealers both of which didn't even make me an offer. I met with Eric on a Saturday, received a very good offer, and left with a check in 10 minutes.
After doing a ton of research, we sold our large diamond ring, and several other items, to Eric at Southwest Jewelry Buyers. I cannot recommend them strongly enough. They paid us a great price, and best of all they are direct buyers. We met with several...
Southwest Jewelry Buyers paid far more than the other dealers I went to. I strongly recommend them if you are in the market to sell your diamond.
When I couldn't get to Eric's office, he offered to meet me at a bank near me. He paid a very fair price for my engagement ring, and it took all of 5 minutes to walk away with a check.
Eric was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. He took the time to show me the actual value of my diamond jewelry, and I left with a nice check. Thank you again Eric.

I tried selling my diamonds on line and in a classified ad. It was an absolute nightmare. I must have been approached by a dozen scam artists. Selling my diamond ring to Eric was safe, easy, and I got an excellent price. He even met me at a bank, which really...
We met Eric on a Saturday morning (could not meet during the week because of my job). He evaluated our many rings in no time at all, and paid us considerably more than we thought we would get. My husband and I highly recommend Southwest Jewelry Buyers.
My fiancee said no - so I wanted to sell my engagement ring quickly and forget about the bad memories. I tried to sell it on consignment - big mistake. It sat there for months before I had to go in and get it back. They paid me a very fair price, on the spot,...
I had a large number of broken jewelry items that I thought were worthless. I took everything to Southwest Jewelry Buyers, where they carefully sorted through my entire collection. I went home with a LARGE check which was just such a pleasure as I thought I...
My wife and I were just so pleased with our dealings with Eric at SJB. He is very knowledgeable, and always pays us great prices on everything we've sold from a larger diamond to our large collection of older gold jewelry. Thank you again.
Just wanted to write you a note to thank you for buying our gold jewelry. We called several dealers you paid 70% more than the lowest one, and 20% over the highest! Thanks again for giving us a fair price, and we will be back!
Eric thanks again for giving me such a good price for my ring. ***** ****** really low-balled me. You gave me almost 2X more. Considering how much I paid, I really appreciate it.
