Frequently Asked Jewelry Consignment Questions

We accept fine jewelry of the type that would be purchased in a jewelry store. Diamonds, gemstones, gold, platinum, pearls, jade, high-end watches, and high-end designer jewelry.

All items must be accompanied by a recent 3rd-party independent appraisal with "appraised replacement value" of at least $750.

If you do not have a current 3rd-party independent appraisal, we recommend that you have your item appraised at Pacific Gem Labs of Portland. P.G.L. is one of the Pacific Northwest's oldest and most trusted jewelry appraisal services. Note: We are not affiliated with P.G.L., nor do we receive any royalties or commissions for referrals.

Pricing is determined by several factors. First and most important is the 3rd party independent "replacement value" appraisal. Generally, the starting price is about 40% to 50% of the appraised replacement value, but that can vary significantly depending on condition, age, and demand for the particular style.
You may recommend an amount for our pricing specialist to consider, however we cannot accept consignments if we feel the item won't sell because the price is too high. Most consignors are very pleased with our pricing recommendations as they provide a fair return and a quick sale.
We give you options regarding the selling price. You can specify that the price is to remain firm, or that you will accept an offer of a pre-determined amount lower than the ticket price, or you may even specify that we contact you with offers.
This fantastic benefit is included at no charge! We are the only consignment store in the northwest that maintains on a daily basis an online database of items offered for sale in our store. Although this is a significant added expense for us, we feel that the benefits to the consignor and to the customer far outweigh the expense.
We will contact you when it is time to pick up your items if they haven't sold.
No. Please ensure that your jewelry is clean and in good repair before bringing it in on consignment.

A potential buyer would be very reluctant to purchase an expensive piece of jewelry without a written, unbiased appraisal of value from a certified gemologist. An Independent 3rd-party appraiser has no reason to inflate, devalue, or conveniently apply a specific value to any of the items they appraise. In addition, independent appraisers are incredibly thorough and competent and typically provide the customer with a great deal of specificity and details on the jewelry they appraise. We have chosen to use Pacific Gem Labs as our preferred appraiser, as they are one of the Northwest's oldest and most respected independent appraisers.

On the other hand, jewelry retailers who provide a free "in-house" appraisal may indeed have a conflict of interest.
