How to Sell Expensive Jewelry for the Best Price

You likely know the value of your jewelry, and you probably don't want to sell it for less than what you deserve. Of course, you often aren't able to re-sell your jewelry for the same amount that you paid for it. However, you can recoup more money by selling to the right professional jeweler. No matter the type of jewelry you are hoping to sell, you can get a higher resale value by selling to the right buyer.


If you're in Virginia Beach, consider selling your jewelry to a reputable jeweler like Hilltop Pawn. We have built a great name for ourselves in the Virginia Beach community for a reason, and buying and selling jewelry is what we do here. You can avoid the listing fees, potential scams, and assorted other issues that go along with selling jewelry online by selling to a local buyer instead.


​Maybe you don't want to sell jewelry online, but you could be wondering why you should choose us instead of our competition. Well, because our pawn store puts its primary focus on jewelry, we are adept at accurately valuing many different pieces of jewelry. It's what we do all day long! 


We like to stock our store with high-end pieces, so we are willing to pay handsomely for them to encourage sellers like you to sell to us.

Sell a Diamond Engagement Ring for More at Hilltop Pawn

For many people, their engagement ring is the most expensive piece of jewelry that they will ever own. Although there are certainly ways to get great deals on diamond engagement rings (like shopping at Hilltop Pawn), many people spend a lot of money on a nice diamond ring. If you have an engagement ring that you want to sell, you probably don't want to sell it for a low price. Instead, you're probably hoping to get a higher price so you can recoup some of your losses.


Luckily, it's entirely possible to sell your engagement ring for top dollar. In fact, there's an easy way to do it...selling to Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry. We know just how valuable diamond engagement rings are. We buy and sell them every day!


What impacts how much a diamond engagement ring is worth? Well, the number one thing that we usually look at is the center stone. After all, this is usually the most expensive part of the ring. We will determine the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight of the primary stone in your engagement ring, and this will be the base for our offer. We will also look at any complementary stones...even tiny stones in a halo can add significantly to the value of your ring.


​Does your ring have a different stone than a diamond? Some people opt for alternative stones, like sapphires, rubies, emeralds, or other stones for their engagement rings. Of course, these stones are valuable, too, and we will look at them similarly to how we would assess the value of a diamond. We look at the carat weight and quality of these stones, for example.


Lastly, of course, we'll look at what your engagement ring is made from. Platinum and 18K gold are some of the most valuable precious metals that are commonly used for making engagement rings. Of course, we also pay top dollar for engagement rings made from other precious metals, including 14K gold (which is also quite popular), 10K gold, sterling silver…


If you aren't sure how much your engagement ring is worth, bring it in for us to take a look at it. Because we buy and sell so many engagement rings, we will easily be able to value your ring. Then, you can get paid top dollar for your ring in cash, or you can use it as a trade-in value toward your upgraded engagement ring.


Are you actually in the market for an engagement ring? We encourage you to come to Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry, the best place to buy an engagement ring in Virginia Beach. We always have a great selection of modern and vintage engagement rings for great prices. You can potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on your engagement ring purchase, and our friendly staff will help you with picking out the perfect ring.

Sell Rare Vintage or Antique Jewelry for More at Hilltop Pawn

Vintage and antique-inspired jewelry is very popular, but perhaps you know that there is nothing quite like the real thing. Maybe you have built up a collection of authentic vintage or antique pieces, or perhaps you have recently inherited a loved one's collection. If you have antique or vintage jewelry, you shouldn't sell to just anyone...instead, come to Hilltop Pawn, where we know and appreciate the value of authentic older pieces.


​With some of the antique pieces, it's rare to find authentic pieces that have been taken care of and that are in good condition. If you have good-quality vintage or antique jewelry, you likely know that it's special and worth a significant amount of money. Bring these pieces to Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry, and let us make you an offer. It's a great way to sell older pieces, and you'll know that the jewelry buyer that you're selling to appreciates the value of antiques and vintage items.


We Buy Loose Diamonds & Precious Stones on the Spot

Maybe you don't actually have a diamond ring or other piece of valuable jewelry that you want to sell. Instead, you might have loose diamonds or precious stones. As you probably know, the diamond is usually the most valuable part of a piece of jewelry, so you're probably hoping that you can get paid a great price for a loose diamond. The good news is, we offer a good option for selling loose stones. If your diamond fell out of your engagement ring or if you otherwise have a loose diamond, bring it to us. We will carefully inspect it to determine carat weight, color, clarity, and cut...the 4 C's of diamonds. Then, we will make you an offer.


Sell Precious Metals for More Money in Virginia Beach

If you actually have precious metals instead of estate jewelry, we can help. Gold, platinum, and silver are all quite valuable, whether they were used to make jewelry or not.

Any time you want to be paid the most money for your precious metals, dealing with our pawn and jewelry store is a good idea!


Get a Loan on Expensive Jewelry at Hilltop Pawn

If you own expensive jewelry, did you know that it's your ticket to being able to borrow large sums of money without a credit check?

Bad credit doesn't matter, and how much you can borrow is based on the value of your collateral (ie: the jewelry you bring in). It's very easy, and it's a great way to put some cash in your pocket without selling the high-end jewelry that you love.


If you are looking for the best place to get the best price for your valuable, high-end jewelry, there's no reason to bother with other pawn shops or jewelry stores.
