Our Process

At Austin Jewelry & Diamond Buyers, we are not a cash for gold style business. We carefully assess all items that are brought to us and try to give you the highest amount possible. This is especially important when selling gemstone jewelry and vintage jewelry as many gold buyers do not have the knowledge to give you an offer beyond material value. We are experts in fine natural gemstones, antique jewelry, and designer jewelry. 
When you come in we will carefully evaluate your pieces. This can involve weighing, measuring, and examining stones under a microscope. We do not use invasive methods that will harm your pieces. Please bring any certificates (GIA, AGL, EGL, etc.), receipts, or any other materials you may have for your pieces that will help us give you the strongest offer we can.  
A note on appraisals: 
We do not offer appraisals as they are highly subjective and are only relevant for insurance replacement purposes. The replacement value on an appraisal will not factor into any offers we give on your items. If you are looking to get your items appraised, we can recommend a reputable appraiser in town. If you are looking to get an idea of the value of your items, we are happy to provide our opinion free of charge.
