Valuing Your Jewellery

Our highly trained specialists consider many factors when valuing your jewellery to ensure we provide you with the most accurate and up to date valuation. The most important factors are:

BRAND

Jewellery from certain brands or makers such as CartierTiffany Van Cleef & Arpels tend to have higher resale values and hold their value much better over time.

PROVENANCE

If you have a certificate of sale or any papers that record information about your jewellery, this adds value. If you have lost or misplaced them, don’t worry, we will still be able to provide you with a loan estimate.

MATERIAL

Fine jewellery is mostly made of high value materials such as gold (yellow, white, rose), platinum and silver. Look for the hallmark stamped on your jewellery as this certifies the purity (9 – 24 carats).

CONDITION

We understand that over time your jewellery might have some wear and tear damage, though any significant dents, scratches or other damage can impact the value. Broken jewellery made of precious metal can still be valued by weight gemstones can be valued separately.

GEMSTONES

Diamonds are assessed by the fundamental four C’s: colour, clarity, cut and carat. To achieve the highest potential value for your diamonds, we welcome the 5th C: certificate. Laboratory certificates from GIA, HRD, and Anchorcert all help maximise the value of the diamonds set in your jewellery.

MARKET VALUE

We consider any recent information we can locate from auction and private sale records to ensure our valuations, which are based on auction estimates, are accurate.

CAN I PAWN MY SECONDHAND ENGAGEMENT RING?

Common items of jewellery that are used to secure a loan at Suttons and Robertsons, pawnbroker in Central London will be rings, of all the rings that are seen, probably the most common will be; Both the ancient Egyptians and Greeks can be credited with the birth of the engagement ring. The history of the ring, though can be reliably traced back to ancient Rome. In many countries, the ring is placed on the ring finger of the left hand. This finger was supposed to contain the ‘vena amoris’ or vein of love, which led to the heart. The first well documented use of a diamond engagement ring was by the Archduke Maximilian of Austria, to his betrothed, Mary of Burgundy in 1477. This then influenced the upper classes to use diamonds in engagement rings. The medieval Italians called the diamond the “Pietra della Reconciliazione” (stone of reconciliation) because it maintained concord between husband and wife. On this account, it was recommended that the stone be set in wedding (or espousal) rings, not on account of its beauty, therefore. A Gimmal ring, is a ring with two or three hoops or links that fit together to form one complete ring. The name gimmal comes from Latin gemellus, twin, via Old French. In the 16th and 17th centuries, such rings were fashionable in England, Germany, and other countries, and were often used as betrothal rings. The engaged couple would wear one hoop each and rejoin them to use as a wedding ring. With triple-link rings, a third person could witness the couple’s vows and hold the third part of the ring until the marriage. In 1866 diamonds were discovered in South Africa by 1872 and output exceeded one million carats a year. This then enabled those of lesser means were able to purchase diamond engagement rings, though they primarily remained in the domain of the aristocracy nobility. The vogue at that time was for a simple band ring. The diamond price collapsed during the 1930s and the Great Depression in the USA. Hence, in 1938, the diamond cartel De Beers started a merchandising campaign to galvanise the market. One of the first elements of this campaign was to educate the public about the 4Cs (cut, carats, colour, clarity). In 1947, the slogan “a diamond is forever” was introduced. Ultimately the De Beers campaign sought to persuade the consumer that an engagement ring is indispensable, and that a diamond is the only acceptable stone for an engagement ring. The idea that a man should spend a significant fraction of his annual income on an engagement ring originated from De Beers marketing materials in the mid-20th century in an effort to increase the sale of diamonds. In the 1930s, they suggested that a man should spend the equivalent of one month’s income on the engagement ring; later, they suggested that he should spend two months’ income. In 2012, the average cost of an engagement ring in the USA as reported by the industry was US$4,000. In the UK, estimates of the average cost of an engagement ring range from £1200 to £2000. In Nordic countries, engagement rings are worn by both men and women. Traditionally they are plain gold bands, although more ornate designs and other materials are gaining popularity. Traditionally, women in the British Isles may propose marriage to men during a leap year. Women proposing has become more common in recent years, to the point that some jewellery companies have started manufacturing men’s engagement rings. They resemble typical men’s rings, often with a diamond centrepiece. Whatever the style price point, engagement rings will typically be of higher value than other rings purchased as gifts, this makes them ideal items to be used as collateral for pawnbroking loans.
