Leading International Buyer of Jewelry Helps Chicagoans Make Room for New Treasures

CIRCA, the leading international buyer of jewelry, diamonds and watches, encourages people to sell possessions that they no longer utilize or wear, nor desired by anyone in their family in order to invest in new possibilities. Fiscally savvy consumers understand that there is value in selling to buy.

Uncertain about which pieces to sell, what to hang on to and how to identify jewelry trends versus mainstays? Ruth Thuston, CIRCA’s Chicago Director, offers guidelines to help make it easy to update your jewelry box this season and beyond.

  • Use: Are you wearing the brooch you inherited from your great cousin 20 years ago, or is it just taking up space in your jewelry box? All jewelry, diamonds and watches have value. Sell the piece to CIRCA and explore new treasures and possibilities.
  • Balance function with emotion: Oftentimes people hang on to items bequeathed, because they aren’t sure how to gauge the value. One’s jewelry collection should be balanced with pieces you care about along with a few select family heirlooms. Invest in your family’s future by selling pieces that you are able and willing to part with.
  • Stay true to you, while staying on trend: Do you have classic style with a box full of costume jewelry? Do you prefer bold, modern looks but stick with pearls because that’s what you own? If you have outdated items, consider selling them as an opportunity to build out your jewelry collection with new pieces you will feel confident wearing.

Additionally, turn to CIRCA to settle an estate of jewelry assets or to sell gold, jewels and watches simply sitting in a safe. In any case, whether looking to identify the value of your jewelry, interested in selling certain items or if you just have questions, CIRCA’s expert team can help you sell your pieces, seamlessly. CIRCA offers a simple and efficient buying process – clients bring in pieces they are looking to sell, meet with one of CIRCA‘s expert buyers for a complete analysis of the items, and receive immediate payment that day for future investments.

CIRCA’s Chicago office purchases tons of thousands of pieces of jewelry, diamonds and watches per month while offering consistent, outstanding service to every client. Recent acquisitions have ranged from a $120 snowman pendant to a half a million dollar pair of diamond earrings. CIRCA examines each piece with the same level of care and attention regardless of value.

“At CIRCA Chicago, we offer unparalleled client service in a safe, confidential and welcoming environment for those looking to sell their pieces,” stated Thuston. “We strive to educate our clients about the selling process and our expertise every step of the way.”
