Sell Your Engagement Ring in Virginia Beach

If you're ready to sell your old ring, you might be looking for engagement ring buyers who will pay you a great price. Instead of looking for a private buyer, consider coming to Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach. Here, we buy and sell fine jewelry every day. In fact, many people in the Virginia Beach area consider us to be more like local jewelers rather than a pawn shop. We can show you the best way to get a higher price for your diamond engagement ring, all while enjoying an incredibly easy selling experience.

Selling Your Engagement Ring is Easy at Hilltop Pawn

The process of selling your engagement ring is incredibly easy at Hilltop Pawn. Just bring your ring in anytime during our regular business hours. One of our staff members will carefully determine the value of your ring. Then, we'll make you a fair cash offer. You aren't obligated to accept our offer or sell your ring, nor do you owe us anything for looking at it and determining its true value. However, since we offer the most money for engagement rings, we think you'll be more than satisfied with our offer!


If you decide you do want to sell your ring, we will need to take down some information from your government-issued, unexpired ID. Because we like to do things in the easiest way possible for our customers, this actually isn't our rule; it's something we're required to do by the state.

Once we've documented the information, we'll hand you cash on the spot for your ring. There are no wait times to get your money and no checks to cash. In no time, you will be walking out the door with your cash payment in hand.


Even though we do everything we can to make the process easy, you might still have some questions about what is involved in selling an engagement ring to us. That's okay! Our friendly and intelligent staff members are always ready to answer your questions, no matter what they might be. If you have any questions before or during the process of selling your engagement ring, just ask. We'll do our best to help you out!


How Much Will I Get When I Sell My Engagement Ring?

Sometimes, people call us on the phone to find out how much we will pay for their engagement ring. We understand that you're probably pretty anxious to find out how much you can get, but we'll need you to stop in at the store. Because we look at so many different things when valuing rings, we'll need to be able to look at it.


The first thing we will look at is the precious metal that was used to make your ring. After all, 18K gold engagement rings are worth more than 10K gold engagement rings, although we do pay top dollar for both.

We will then assess the stones in your ring. The carat weight, cut, clarity, and color are all things we will look at when assessing diamond engagement rings.


Next, we'll look at other things. We are sometimes able to pay more for vintage or designer pieces, and some styles are more popular than others. We'll also consider the overall quality of your ring. Basically, can it be resold as-is, does it need some work, or will it need to be sold for its melt and diamond value?


If you have questions about how we value rings or why we valued your ring like we did, don't be afraid to ask. We'd be happy to tell you more.

Why Sell My Engagement Ring to Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach?

Of course, Hilltop Pawn isn't the only place where you can sell an engagement ring. You also have the option to sell your ring to an individual buyer, for example. It can be a bit of a hassle to find a buy on Craig's List or Facebook, though, and you never know if the person is actually going to show up, or if it's safe for you to meet. An individual might try to lowball you, either because they don't understand and appreciate the resale value of your ring, or just because they're hoping to get the ring for the cheapest price possible.


There are other local pawn shops and jewelry stores out there. Many jewelry stores will offer to let you sell the ring on consignment, but you never know how long it will take for your ring to sell if you do this. Other pawn shops do buy diamond engagement rings, too, but many of them don't deal in jewelry quite as much as we do. This means that many of them simply won't pay as much for engagement rings as Hilltop Pawn.


Lastly, of course, you can look for an online jewelry buyer who will purchase your ring. These buyers will typically require you to send your ring in to them so they can appraise it. Once they've done so, they will send you a check or a deposit for your ring. This has its downsides. There is a wait to get paid, and there is the possibility that your ring could get lost in the mail. Additionally, if you don't like the offer they make you on your ring, you may actually have to pay for them to ship your ring back. Then, you'll have to wait to receive your ring back so you can look into another option for selling it.


You don't really have to worry about these problems when you sell to Hilltop Pawn. You'll be working with a local, trusted, reputable business, so you don't have to worry about scams or lowball offers. We deal in engagement rings on a daily basis, so we'll pay you what your ring is worth, since we do want to buy your ring and because we have experience in valuing jewelry. Plus, you'll get paid in cash the same day that you come in, so there are no wait times!


Why Does Hilltop Pawn Offer Top Dollar for Engagement Rings?

You could be wondering why we're willing to pay top dollar for engagement rings. The answer is simple: we strive to keep a nice selection of engagement rings (as well as other fine jewelry, from designer jewelry to fine estate jewelry and antique jewelry) on hand. After all, we have become known in the area as the go-to place to find jewelry, and we want to maintain that reputation. When we purchase pre-owned engagement rings from customers like you, we are able to keep our jewelry cases full with the jewelry pieces that our customers are looking for.


In many cases, when engagement rings are brought to us, we will make any necessary repairs and clean the piece thoroughly so it's ready to be put up for sale. However, this is not always the case, depending on the condition. If someone brings us an old ring that isn't really repairable, this doesn't mean that we won't buy it. We do buy these rings, too, although for a lower amount in most cases. However, the diamond or other valuable stone has value because of its carat weight, and these stones can even be used in other pieces of jewelry. The precious metals of the ring can be melted down and reused, so we pay top dollar based on how much the precious metals are worth. Because we deal in diamonds and precious metals, we're willing to pay a fair price for even the most damaged of engagement rings.


Other Engagement Ring Services Offered at Hilltop Pawn

Many people know that we are some of the top diamond buyers out there, but we are much more than just jewelry buyers at Hilltop Pawn. We also offer other engagement ring services, making us the best place to go for pretty much anything related to diamond jewelry.


For one thing, if you are actually in the market to buy an engagement ring -- rather than selling one -- we can help you out with that. Hilltop Pawn is well-known in the area for being a fine jewelry store. We offer pre-owned engagement rings for a fraction of the cost of the big jewelry stores. This is your best option for buying a white gold engagement ring, a diamond engagement ring, or any other type of ring that you have in mind, all for a fair price. We also offer wedding bands, too. If you're looking for a high value engagement ring for a reasonable price, Hilltop Pawn is here to help. We offer all of the leading bridal jewelry brands!


We also make loans on engagement rings. Unlike other local pawn shops, we will give you a higher immediate cash offer for your pawn loan. Bring your ring to us, take out a fast and easy cash loan, and get your ring back when you repay it.


Lastly, we offer jewelry repair services. If your engagement ring doesn't fit properly, we can help with resizing it. If your ring is missing its center diamond or an accent stone, we can put it back in place or replace it for you. We also help with prong repairs and any other repairs that your engagement ring might need, and we offer professional cleanings, too. Bring your ring to us, and we'll make it look as good as new with our years of experience in the jewelry and jewelry repair industry.
