Sell Jewelry | Local Buyer

If you have antique jewelry that you no longer want, or if you have fine jewelry from a modern top designer that you've changed your mind on, you might be ready to sell your jewelry pieces for cash. The best way to do that is to sell to a local buyer. Don't just go to a regular gold buyer, since they might just pay you for the melt value of your gold, rather than the full value of your diamond jewelry. To get paid the highest prices, visiting pawn and jewelry stores like Greenbrier Pawn is wise. Not only are we buyers of gold jewelry, but we're diamond buyers and buyers of silver jewelry, too. No matter what type of jewelry you're hoping to get an immediate payment for, Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake, Virginia is the right place to sell. Paying great prices is what we do!

How to Sell Jewelry

Selling a piece of jewelry is easy! This is especially true when you work with jewelry buying professionals and estate jewelry buyers with many years experience, like Greenbrier Pawn. Come to our local store with your unwanted gold jewelry and other pieces, and we'll show you just how easy the whole process actually is!


Sell to Our Pawn and Jewelry Store

If you're still wondering if you should sell jewelry online, consider the benefits of selling to us instead. The entire process at your local pawn shop will be hassle-free and fast. Not only do we offer the fastest way to get quick cash for your jewelry, but we also pay great prices!


Gather Your Jewelry

Once you've decided that selling to us is a good option, you'll need to gather up your unwanted jewelry. Take a few minutes to look through your jewelry box to decide what you want to sell. Luckily for you, you can sell pretty much any jewelry that you don't want here. You might have an old wedding ring or old engagement rings that you want to sell, or you might have a couple of tennis bracelets that you haven't worn in a while. We buy antique rings, vintage jewelry, and designer jewelry.


If you have jewelry that isn't in wearable condition, don't worry -- you can bring it in, too. Sometimes, our jewelry repair professionals can repair damaged pieces, so they often still have resale value. Even if your jewelry is in really bad shape, it still likely has scrap value based on the sum of its parts, like the precious metals it was made from or the valuable diamonds or gemstones in the piece.


Remember that preowned jewelry isn't the only thing we pay the most money for, either. We are always looking to buy Swiss timepieces and luxury watches, for example! These are just some of the items that we'll pay the best price for!

  • David Yurman jewelry

  • Sterling silver jewelry

  • Diamond rings

  • Wedding rings

  • Modern jewelry

  • Antique estate jewelry

  • Fine watches

  • Patek Philippe jewelry

  • Van Cleef & Arpels pieces

  • Tiffany & Co. jewelry

  • Diamond engagement rings

Bring Your ID

Pawn shops in all 50 states across the country have regulations, and that's true for our high-end jewelry and pawn shop, too. Because we're required by law to see ID and document basic information from customers who sell us jewelry and other items, we do ask that you bring your ID along with you. After all, you don't want any delays or issues when you're selling your jewelry for top dollar!


Get a Free Valuation

The first step we'll take when you come in is to look at your unwanted jewelry and determine its approximate value. If you're worried, don't be -- we have years of experience in handling, buying, selling, and even repairing jewelry from all different time periods and brands. Our free appraisal only takes a few minutes, so you'll have your fair offer in no time.


Get Paid

As a professional jewelry buyer, we know you want to get paid on the spot! We'll pay you in cash on the spot, or we'll give you store credit if that's what you'd prefer. Cash is the obvious choice for many, but if you've been thinking about buying a new piece of jewelry or anything else from our pawn and jewelry store, store credit is great. It's a good way to basically trade a piece of jewelry that you don't want for something that suits your personal style more.

How Much Can I Get for My Jewelry?

Whether you're selling a couple of wedding bands or a large collection of jewelry, you're likely curious about the true value of your pieces. It's easy to find out how much you'll get for your jewelry; you just have to come in and ask, and there's zero obligation. If you don't like our offer, it's no problem; you can take your jewelry home with you, and there's no need to pay us for the valuation. However, if you're actually interested in selling your jewelry, we think you'll be happy with our offers. We will even let you know how much we are offering for each individual piece -- if you're bringing in a large collection -- so you can decide what you do and don't want to sell.


Is Your Jewelry Ready to Be Resold?

As you likely know, the reason we buy pre-owned jewelry is so we can add it to the inventory here at our store front. If your jewelry is ready to be re-sold as is, it has a higher value than if it has to be repaired first or if it is only valuable because of its melt value. Don't let this stop you from bringing in jewelry that isn't in pristine condition, though, because we do buy it all.


Do You Have Designer Jewelry?

In the jewelry industry, we understand the value of designer jewelry from popular brands like David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., Patek Philippe, and more. We're always on the lookout to purchase designer pieces. Your designer jewelry is worth more here.


Is Your Jewelry Rare?

Some jewelry pieces are quite rare, such as limited edition pieces from designers or certain antique pieces. If your jewelry is rare, it's worth more at Greenbrier Pawn!


​What Precious Metal is Your Jewelry Made From?

A lot of people bring us gold, silver, and platinum jewelry. Gold and platinum are typically more valuable than sterling silver, although we pay top dollar for sterling silver jewelry, too.


Does Your Jewelry Have Diamonds or Valuable Stones?

Of course, your jewelry's overall value is impacted by a number of things. What many people don't know, though, is that the diamonds or valuable stones in a piece of jewelry are often the most valuable part. A simple gold ring definitely has value, but that value goes way up if the ring features a large, good-quality diamond or a nice emerald or ruby. We're quite experienced at examining and valuing diamonds and stones based on size, color, cut, and clarity. Also, if your ring or necklace features multiple diamonds or valuable stones, each one has value, including the smaller accent stones. All of these things will be considered when we're making you an offer.


Best Place to Sell Jewelry

Any time that you're selling gold, silver or platinum jewelry and want to enjoy an easy process, finding the best jewelry buyers is important. In many cases, the best jewelry buyer is a pawn shop! Using other methods to sell jewelry can be a real hassle, but you can get great results by selling your jewelry to a local pawn store.


Sell Jewelry Locally

One great reason to sell your jewelry to a pawn shop is because it allows you to sell locally! There's no reason to work with mail-in secondhand precious metals dealers or jewelry buyers when there are jewelry experts right here in the Hampton Roads area.


Get Paid in Cash

If you're selling your pieces of jewelry because you're in a financial pinch, or if you just want to get everything done and over with quickly, selling to a pawn shop makes sense. After all, you'll get paid in cash, and you'll get paid on the spot!


Best Pawn Shop in Town

You can get a great offer and a great experience when you sell your jewelry to a pawn shop, but naturally, this depends on just which pawn shop you visit! If you're in Chesapeake and are looking for the best pawn shop in town, you've already found it: Greenbrier Pawn. Sell your jewelry items to us or use our other services, and you'll see why our customers come to us time and time again, whether they're buying, selling, or taking out a pawn loan.


Greenbrier Pawn is a Trusted Name

People from all around Hampton Roads know and trust Greenbrier Pawn. After all, we're locally owned and operated, and we've been here since the 1990s! We have knowledgeable staff, we pay competitive prices, and we buy all different types of jewelry! We are a full service jewelry store, too. Many people in Chesapeake know us as a premier jeweler; we're the best place to go to buy the perfect engagement ring for a fair price, or you can shop for the perfect piece of jewelry for a night on the town or a gift for your mom.


It makes sense to want to sell your jewelry to a jewelry buyer with a good reputation, as opposed to an unknown person from an online marketplace or one of the online buyers that you don't know much about. Any time that you want to deal with a reputable pawn and jewelry store -- whether you're selling jewelry or anything else -- Greenbrier Pawn is a great place to go.


We Pay More for Jewelry

Although enjoying an easy experience is nice, getting the highest cash offer is probably your primary concern when you're selling jewelry. We get it -- you want to get as much for designer or vintage jewelry as possible! As a superior pawn and jewelry store, it's our goal to pay you the highest cash value for old gold jewelry, loose diamonds, and more. There's no reason to get paid the minimum price for used and new jewelry, when you can get paid a good price here!


We Always Pay in Cash

Some professional jewelry buyers pay with a check. Online buyers will sometimes deposit the money in your bank account. If you don't have a bank account, don't want to wait a long time for a check to clear, or don't want to pay check cashing fees, come to us. Here at Greenbrier Pawn, we know that cash is still king, and we pay all of our customers in cash, on the spot.


Enjoy Our Many Pawn and Jewelry Services

In addition to paying top dollar for antique and designer jewelry, Greenbrier Pawn is so much more. If you want to buy a diamond ring or gold coins at a fair price, visit us first. We always have a great inventory, and our prices always offer the best value! There's really no reason to pay higher prices for jewelry or other items when you can shop with us. You can also ask us about our pawn loans, jewelry repair services, and more. Greenbrier Pawn really does it all, so there's no reason to visit any other pawn shop in Chesapeake! Also, if you're looking for the best pawn shop in Virginia Beach, we think you'll love visiting Hilltop Pawn, our sister store.

Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry

If you happen to be in Virginia Beach please visit our Sister Store, Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry for the same great service you'll get from us here at Greenbrier Pawn.

Why is Greenbrier Pawn Shop & Jewelry Different?

Lots of pawn shops buy and sell diamonds and jewelry. However, few really specialize in jewelry like we do here at Greenbrier Pawn Shop. In fact, when you walk into our shop, you will probably notice that resembles a high-end jewelry shop more than it does a traditional pawn shop. Even though we offer all of the same services that other pawn shops offer, many of our customers see us as more of a jewelry store. Once you stop in and check out our selection once, you’re sure to find that we’re your new favorite go-to Jewelry Store.
