We accept any pre-owned jewelry that contains gold, platinum, or diamonds. Whether it's a designer ring, vintage watch, or a gold chain, you’ll get the same luxury Worthyfew experience.
Because you won’t get a good valuation. Jewelry stores have massive overhead costs and usually take months to sell their inventory. They pass those overhead costs down to you when buying your jewelry. Pawn shops are even worse—they’ll often pay less than 20% of an item’s actual value.
Yes! Jewelry restoration is our specialty. When your jewelry passes through our restoration center, we clean, polish, and fix it—making it look new.
This allows us to pay you what your jewelry
Yes, your kit can safely hold over 30 pieces of jewelry.
Yes! We send you free packaging designed to protect your jewelry during shipping. And because your jewelry is insured, it’s just as safe in the mail as in your drawer at home.
You get paid 3-5 days after we receive your jewelry at our NYC headquarters. The only thing you’ll have to wait for is the delivery of the check.
You can still reject the offer if the original check is returned without being cashed.For more details on rejecting your offer, please see our Rejection Terms.
We prefer to sell your jewelry as a whole piece—which is why we have a restoration center dedicated to making old jewelry sparkle like new. Melting gold down—which many buyers called “scrap gold”—is something pawn shops and jewelry stores do to make a quick buck. For us, it’s the last resort.
You will only receive one bundled offer for all the jewelry sent in. Often, you will get an itemized breakdown for each piece and its corresponding worth. You will only have the option to accept or reject a single offer.
We’ll update you every step of the way using the email address you’ve provided. Once we have your offer ready, we’ll ship you a check with the exact cash amount your jewelry is worth. Have a question for our experts? Contact us here.
We send you a check for your total offer amount through USPS First Class mail.
Your check will be shipped out immediately via USPS First Class and typically takes 2 to 3 days to arrive.

Because our kits are specially made to keep your jewelry safe, they are also expensive, so we only replace them on a case-by-case basis. To request a new kit, contact our support team here.
The postage on your kit never expires. If your kit is over 20 days old, our shipping insurance expires and we no longer grant jewelry returns. Contact us if you’d like to extend the life of your kit’s insurance and return policy.
We only reject jewelry with no precious metals or if it only contains trace amounts of silver valued at less than $20—typically seen in costume jewelry. Unfortunately, to cover return shipping costs of low-value items, you’ll have to pay for shipping—which is a flat-rate $50 fee.
Yes, our appraisal acts as an offer to buy your jewelry.
Yes. We need to perform a detailed inspection in person to assess condition, authenticity, and quality accurately. To request a free Jewelry Shipping Kit and find out what your jewelry is worth, click here.
Our experts use data from thousands of past jewelry auctions, while accounting for gemology, jewelry market trends, and current material value. If your jewelry needs any restoration, we make our assessment on its post-restoration condition. The evaluation and sale of each piece of jewelry is a constantly evolving process. Our primary mission is, and will always be, to pay you the highest possible price.
The Worthyfew team of jewelry experts consists of GIA-certified gemologists, bench jewelers, and sales specialists. Their combined experience gives them a unique ability to evaluate your jewelry, taking into account gemology, material value, and marketplace demand.
All mounted diamond and gemstone grading is performed by GIA standards. By those industry standards, stones are not removed from their mounting, as they would damage, if not destroy, the original setting. On that basis, all items are valued and inspected by our certified gemologist.
Counterfeit jewelry can contain trace amounts of precious metal (or none) but is deceptively designed and marked to appear much more expensive. It can be plated with precious metal but marked “925” or “14K” as if it were solid silver or gold, contain simulant/synthetic gems while posing as the real thing, or be mislabeled with a brand name.
If we suspect that submitted jewelry is not authentic, we will contact you for proof of purchase to establish your jewelry’s authenticity. Our policy states that if someone sends us counterfeit jewelry, all their jewelry will be discarded at our facility.
Not at all. Counterfeit jewelry is rare, and the owner of it is usually aware of its deception.
Worthyfew does not accept items that have been reported as lost or stolen. By law, it is our responsibility to hand over any illegally obtained items as well as the information of the sender to the proper authorities.
No. Our in-house process is the most advanced in the industry. We work with a nationwide network of trusted jewelry stores. And, as often as possible, your jewelry is sold to a jewelry store in need of your specific jewelry. It’s how we can generate so much more money for our clients than traditional in-person jewelry buyers. The typical pawn shop pretends they will sell your piece in their store, but they don’t. Instead, they purchase your jewelry and sell it to a middleman. Few jewelry stores will keep it on their shelves, either.
We don't have any brick-and-mortar stores for you to visit at this time. We’re strictly an online business for now. We keep our overhead costs low so that we can deliver high payouts to our customers.
Unfortunately, not at this time. But hopefully, in the future!
