Come Spring cleaning, if you want to get rid of some old items cluttering up your closet or desk and you’re looking to sell watches Boca Raton may be a few steps ahead of you, but you can still get rid of those old watches without having to lose a lot of money on the deal. Here are a few ideas to sell those old watches without taking a major loss in the process.
You’ve heard of wine and cheese improving with age, right? Why not watches? Insist that the gold on the band tastes that much better once a watch is a few years old. In all seriousness, classic watches are certainly rarer, and the industry guidelines for vintage place the label on watches at 20 years or older. So if you want to sell a Rolex from the late 90′s in good condition, it is technically vintage.
2. Don’t Just Cash it in

Cashing your watch in for the gold content may be tempting, but if it’s a good one, then it’s probably worth a lot more when sold to an estate jeweler. Take the time to find someone who can help you sell it for its value as a watch – not its gold content.
3. Trade Up

Kidding aside, you don’t always need to sell your watch for cash. You might be able to trade it in for a watch more suited to your style. Perhaps you’re ready to part ways with a watch you bought years ago in favor of upgrading – after all, your tastes have probably changed and -ahem-elevated as your watch knowledge grew.
Marquise engagement rings had their first heyday in the late 70′s and early 80′s. The elegant, elongated shape, combined with the fire and sparkle that only a brilliant cut affords made this diamond cut enormously popular for engagement rings. The settings then tended to combine the cut with yellow gold and possibly a smattering of channel set accent diamonds. However now, we see a trend in women who sell engagement rings with marquise cuts – or better yet, bring in their diamonds to upgrade their wedding set. And while sometimes our clients like a totally different cut and shape, sometimes all it takes is a new setting to breathe new life into a cherished diamond. This stunning 5 carat marquise needed a little zsush – so it met a gorgeous platinum setting studded with .5 ctw of round brilliant diamonds and .93 ctw of baguettes. Of course, pictures and descriptors don’t do this deco inspired beauty justice – so we’re sharing video!

Graff 4 Carat Marquise and Pear Shape Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring with GIA report
This gorgeous ring is one of our favorite estate engagement rings. When a client visits our Boca Raton jewelry store to sell diamonds, quality is the first thing our expert buyers look for. This star of our pear shaped engagement rings collection has a fantastic quality of cut, which is what gives a diamond its sparkle. The pristine color lets the diamond truly shine while extremely well matched pear shaped side stones add a layer of depth to the ring’s shank. Of course, we think all of our engagement rings make for excellent eye candy, but the fire and sparkle in a diamond are virtually impossible to photograph. Which is why we love taking these short little videos! The beauty of this ring lies in its sparkle, and there’s no better way to admire it (except, of course, for on your hand).
