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.
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.
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.
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.
