. A selling partner, Worthy is dedicated to helping sellers get the most money possible for their jewelry.
The benefits of using Worthy?
Their expert gemologists will professionally clean and photograph your jewelry in HD, showing off every angle. Then they have your diamonds professionally graded by the GIA to provide you with objective information that you can use to set your own reserve price for an exclusive auction in which Worthy puts your piece in front of 1000 professional buyers. What sets Worthy apart is that they actually help you understand what your diamond jewelry is actually worth. They’re on your side.
What’s special about an evaluation from Worthy?
Worthy’s grading partners include the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and Gemological Science International. Gradings carried out by these partners are extremely thorough and are the most trusted labs in the industry. Think of them as the gold standard. Worthy’s exclusive network of buyers are all industry professionals. Because of Worthy’s evaluation, they know that what they see is what they get, and ultimately place higher bids, earning sellers up to double what they’d get from a local jeweler.
Why not use a local jeweler?
Selling pre-owned jewelry like diamond rings to a local jeweler will often bring minimal value (perhaps just slightly better than going to a pawn shop). When a local jeweler buys an item like this, they will normally sell it to a dealer who then will sell it to a wholesaler. That means there are at least three people who need to make a profit which leaves little money for the seller.
It’s not that jewelers are scammers, they are just trying to make sure that they are getting the best deal possible since they are the ones buying. With all the “behind-the-scenes” variables, your local jeweler’s appraisal is going to be a bit skewed in their favor. With Worthy and their grading partners, you don’t have to worry about that.
Unlike local jewelers, Worthy is not the ultimate buyer of your valuable item. Every evaluation is objective and their agenda is aligned with yours. Their goal is to get the most money for their sellers as possible through a fair and objective process.
So, forget going to your local jeweler and sell with Worthy to get the most for your diamond jewelry!
