Do you know the value of the grenade necklace that is just lying around in a box on the dressing table? The jeweler's price for a short model with antique garnets of, for example, three rows of beads with a gold lock can easily be worth around 1000 euros. It does matter how big the stones and the closure are, but still, you can often get a nice value for this type of jewelry.
All too often local and regional jewelry disappears somewhere in the back of the closet. These old cultural artifacts are no longer fashionable and do not match our current clothing style, you are afraid to go out with such valuable jewelry or the closure is worn.
Do you wonder if it would be better to sell or insure the red coral necklace, the earrings and the antique gold cap ring of your late grandmother? We welcome you to have your jewelry appraised on one of our free appraisal days.
Our team of appraisers worldwide consists of hundreds of people with extensive knowledge and expertise in their specific field. For the Netherlands, this means that we have skilled people among our appraisers who are aware of the history and value of your regional jewellery, traditional costumes and other collections with cultural-historical value. After all, not everyone knows that a jet necklace in combination with jet earrings and cloth pins were only worn during the mourning period, and fall under the so-called mourning jewelry in the Netherlands.
You may also have pearl jewelry at home. If you haven't pulled them out in years, you should. Do not be alarmed if you suddenly see that your pearl necklace has completely turned yellow. That happens with pearls that are not worn. If you don't wear them, don't let them turn yellow. You can sell them and buy something with the proceeds that you do like to wear. During our walk-in days we appraise them for you free of charge.
