How Can I Sell My Jewelry and Make the Most Money? | Hilltop Pawn

Selling jewelry is a good way to clean out your jewelry box, make room for new items that you'll wear more often, and put some quick cash in your pocket. If you're wondering how you can sell jewelry, the answer is simple...there are actually quite a few different ways to sell fine jewelry. 


However, what's important is ensuring you get a fair price, which makes things a little more complicated. Not all jewelry buyers will pay you what you deserve for your jewelry, but if you sell to the right buyer, you can get what you deserve. As your local jeweler, Hilltop Pawn is the best place to sell your unwanted gold jewelry and more. Come see us, and get paid the best price today! We pay more than most pawn shops and jewelry stores.

How Can I Sell My Jewelry in Virginia Beach?

Of course, there are a few different ways that you can look for potential buyers for your gold and diamond jewelry. You have the option to visit a local jewelry store or pawn shop, or you can look for an online jewelry buyer. The best way to sell an unwanted engagement ring or other piece of jewelry, however, is to sell to Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry, your local pawn and jewelry store!


Why shouldn't you sell your jewelry online? Well, there are just so many things that can go wrong. Plus, even though buying and selling things online can be a lot more convenient than doing it in person in a lot of cases, this isn't necessarily the case when it comes to selling jewelry. You have to go through the process of getting everything all set up on the online jewelry buyer's website, or you have to go through the trouble of taking pictures and creating a listing about your jewelry, all in hopes that you will find someone who is interested in buying. Then, you either have to meet up with a stranger locally or send your jewelry in the mail, depending on how you choose to sell. Meeting up with a random person from Facebook Marketplace might not be the safest thing to do when you're selling an expensive piece of jewelry, and you also have to worry about people not showing up or not offering you what you deserve for your piece.


Dealing with an online jewelry buyer can work out, and some of them are reputable. However, the process is slower than selling to Hilltop Pawn, which can be done on the spot. Plus, you have to worry about mailing your piece in to the buyer, which can be more of a hassle than it's worth. Plus, it may take days or longer for you to get paid for your jewelry.


​Selling to a pawn shop makes a lot of sense, but you have to choose the right pawn shop. Some will make you a fair deal, while others will try to low ball you and not pay you fairly for your piece of jewelry. If you want to have a great experience and if you're hoping to get paid high prices for unwanted pre-owned jewelry, come see us at Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry. It doesn't take a long time at fact, in most cases, you'll be in and out in a few minutes. You don't have to worry about the risks or issues that go along with selling your jewelry in other ways, and you'll get paid in cash, right then. There's truly no reason to keep spending time looking for potentially interested buyers for your high end jewelry...we are interested in your diamond necklace, platinum jewelry, or whatever jewelry you are selling, and we are ready to make a deal now. Come find out the value of your jewelry today, and let us pay you in cash!


How Can I Make the Most Money When Selling Jewelry?

No matter who you sell your jewelry to, how much you will be offered depends on the specific piece that you're selling. Naturally, a dazzling diamond ring is going to be worth more than a simple gold band in most cases. If you want to get the most money when selling jewelry, you should pick out the pieces from your jewelry box that are the most valuable. You can bring in several pieces of jewelry and sell them all at once if you'd like to boost your payout a little more. We will appraise each item and make you a separate offer for each one, so you can decide which items you want to sell and which ones you want to keep.


Of course, there are other things that impact how much you will make when you sell your jewelry. Who you sell to is a big factor. Selling to Hilltop Pawn -- the local Virginia Beach jeweler with years of experience -- should give you peace of mind. If you ask our customers, they'll tell you...we pay a higher price for new jewelry, vintage jewelry, luxury watches, or whatever other fine pieces you are looking to sell. Plus, we're always easy to deal with, and our employees do everything they can to make our customers happy!


Hilltop Pawn Shop Buys Jewelry & Pays Top Dollar

If you haven't visited our local store yet, you're missing out. Many people in Hampton Roads know us as being the best jewelry store around. When you're shopping for jewelry, you can buy great pieces for the best value here. If you're hoping to sell your diamond ring or other jewelry, we can help with that, too.


What makes us the best? Well, unlike the average pawn shop, we are set up more like a high-end, luxury jewelry store. A lot of pawn shops don't really have a specific focus on jewelry. This can affect you when you're selling jewelry for a few reasons. For one thing, if the store doesn't really deal with a lot of jewelry, they might not be willing to pay a lot for your unwanted pieces. After all, they might not really care if you choose to sell to them or not, since they might focus more on other things, and their customers might not really come to them for their jewelry selection. This can lead to you getting a lower offer than what you really deserve, even if you have a really nice piece of jewelry that you're interested in selling.


That's not the case with Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry at all. We are well-known for being a great option when you're shopping for jewelry. Many people come to us looking for jewelry of all different types, including antique jewelry, designer jewelry, and so on. Because of this, we have an incentive to buy pre-owned jewelry from customers like you. We actually want your engagement ring, wedding band or necklace...we have to buy jewelry so that we always have a rotating, interesting inventory for our customers to check out.


Another benefit of selling to a pawn shop that is more of a jewelry store is simple: we have more experience with jewelry. There are some pawnbrokers out there who are very fair and reputable, but they simply don't deal with jewelry that much and therefore don't know a whole lot about it. 

This can be a problem for you as a jewelry seller, since if the person doesn't recognize the brand name when you're selling designer jewelry, or if they don't really know how to appraise your nearly flawless diamond, they may not offer you what you deserve. This might not be done intentionally, but the result is the may end up selling your jewelry for a lot less than what we would have offered you for it.


This is never a problem at Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry. We are long-time jewelry sellers and buyers. It's the number one thing that we do, and we work with jewelry all day, every day. We know about the biggest designer brands and the latest trends. We have examined and valued many, many diamonds and valuable gemstones. We can look at your piece and tell you what it's worth in no time.
