Accredited Jewelry Appraisers Resells Clients’ Historical Jewelry in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia


The most valuable jewelry in the world is owned by estates and wealthy collectors. The value of jewelry is determined by several important factors of which two stand out; the brand and characteristics of gemstones and metals.


Historical, brand name jewelry pieces with lots of diamonds and/or gemstones are what any jewelry enthusiast or collector would hope to acquire. The company that designed it is particularly something which greatly affects the value of jewelry because of its classic craftsmanship.


This type of jewelry is usually not found in your average jewelry store. Someone must either inherit the jewelry, get lucky enough to come across a rare find or bid on it at an auction. 


People who inherit jewelry items will sometimes not be interested in keeping it. They would rather sell their jewelry and receive top dollar for them. One common mistake that people make is they go to a pawn shop. The pawn shop will likely undervalue the jewelry piece and offer to purchase it for an amount that is significantly less than what it is truly worth. If they’re able to strike a deal, they’ll turn around and sell it for a lot more money.
