Jewelry To Sell, We are the Place

For many reasons, you may have jewelry to sell. At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler we have the expertise to determine the best value for your jewels and turn them into cash.

In our discreet jewelry studio we can provide you with a very professional atmosphere to sell unwanted jewelry. We have all of the state of the art tools and years of experience to accurately evaluate your valuables and then pay you the optimum price.

We can't buy every piece of jewelry brought in to us, but will be happy to help you assess what you have and guide you. Sometimes it makes sense to sell a piece of jewelry, while at other times it is better to gift the piece along to future generations.  We buy some pieces to sell strictly for scrap, while others we may be able to resell.

Here is an example of a recent estate that we are evaluating to buy. There are many varied items and we are doing research to determine how to get the best value to our client.

If you have jewelry to sell, I promise to be as fair as possible to offer you the maximum amount for your treasures.

Buying and Selling Diamonds of All Sizes

One of my favorite pastimes is educating clients about diamonds, whether they are buying or selling. 

At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler, we take our time to make you aware of the many attributes of diamonds that affect the price. In our state of the art diamond lab, we explain to you about the 4Cs - cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. We feel that there is a 5th C that needs to be addressed when making an important decision about a gemstone, that is confidence in your jeweler. We use our years of experience to explain the differences in diamonds, so you can make an educated decision.

With our state of the art tools in our gem lab, we review all of the characteristics of the diamond with you.  Using our gem-scope, scale, diamond tester, tweezers, loupe, and years of experience we guide you through the process so you will understand the value of a diamond. 

I feel that many people make the unfortunate mistake of walking into a store and buying a diamond based on the passion of the moment instead of making an educated decision.

At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler in Overland Park Kansas we will find you the perfect diamond and mounting. We would also be happy to coach you through the selling of your gemstone.

It's Never Too Early to Plan Your Holiday Jewelry Gifts

I hate talking about the winter holidays when we are in the midst of a beautiful summer. But if you are thinking of a custom made piece of jewelry using a fabulous gemstone to give as a gift this year, now is a great time to get started.

As my business is growing it becomes more evident that I need to plan ahead to accommodate our client's custom jewelry desire. It is important to me that each client gets the personal attention of their private jeweler. We are working on numerous projects for the fall and winter season, all of which should be completed in a timely fashion. If you have a project in mind that you have been thinking about starting it is not too early to contact me.

Here are a few of the projects we are working on presently.

Make sure you also visit our online store often as we are always adding new exciting items. 

We look forward to assisting you in creating your next jewelry moment - a gift that will last a lifetime.

Understanding The Selling Process

Obtaining a new appraisal for jewelry you want to sell can be very expensive and is sometimes unnecessary.

You should know the role of an appraisal in the selling process. For instance, if you have the original paperwork that came with a piece of jewelry and other insurance records, that is very helpful. Using existing records in combination with an on-site evaluation allows us to determine a fair price. We conduct our own evaluations of your diamonds, gold, and precious metal before we give you an offer for your valuables. Therefore an appraisal before selling jewelry is not always mandatory.

Celebrate Your Anniversary with Jewelry

Make your anniversary a special and unforgettable moment in time by creating a jewelry moment.

An anniversary is a perfect occasion to celebrate your history together with a gift that will be enjoyed for years to come. 

When I have evaluated and appraised jewelry over the years, couples love to tell the story of receiving a beautiful piece of jewelry to commemorate that special day in their lives. Gifts often include a beautiful pair of diamond earrings, pendant, anniversary ring, or a custom crafted piece of jewelry. 

Come see us at Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler, in Overland Park Kansas, to make your next anniversary one that will never be forgotten. 

Helping You Sell Your Estate Jewelry

At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler, we are here to support you to help make good decision with estate jewelry.

We have had the opportunity over the past three years to buy many interesting estates with treasures comprised of individual's lifetime collections, many pieces acquired during travels around the world. We have restored many pieces of jewelry so that they can be worn. It is fascinating to think that a piece of jewelry is over 100 years old. I enjoy thinking about the artisan that crafted this piece of jewelry and the talent they used, not having all the modern tools we have today. It is also fascinating to me to think about where this jewelry has been and the stories it could share.  

Evaluating, distributing and selling estate jewelry is a difficult task. At Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler, we can use our years of knowledge to help you with this decision making process. We have the tools in our professional studi, to accurately assay treasures from the past to give you a fair summary of their value, so you can make informed decision as to what you want to do with the estate.

Rose Gold Selection at Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler

Rose gold's popularity dates back to Victorian times and is growing again!

We have purchased estates with rose gold antique jewelry and now we have designed and created a new selection of pink gold jewelry. Rose gold first became popular in Russia in the 19th century and was even referred to as "Russian gold". The popularity of rose gold spread to the Victorian era and is back today.

Rose gold gets it unique color from the addition of copper to yellow gold to create its beautiful pink hue.

Here are some examples of our new and antique collection of rose gold jewelry.

Stop in to our Overland Park studio to see our selection of rose gold jewelry or design your own rose gold keepsake.

Custom Jewelry Project for the Holidays

Start planning for the holidays with a custom crafted piece of jewelry, new diamond, or estate jewelry to make this season special. 

We offer many hand crafted items for holiday gifts, but because the production of these is limited, time is of the essence to see our collection. In addition to custom crafted pieces, we have a wonderful selection of diamonds at prices that are very competitively priced. We personally work with you on each purchase to explain how to get the best value for your money. The quality of our jewelry is noticeably better, adding to the long term wear-ability and enjoyment of each piece.

All items shown in this gallery were made in state of the art jewelry shot at Richard Dolgin Private Jeweler in Overland Park Kansas.

We look forward to making this a special holiday by creating or finding you a beautiful heirloom piece of jewelry that can be treasured for generations to come.
