If you looking for the best place to auction Tiffany jewelry, Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers has a better alternative. We have helped hundreds of people around the country sell Tiffany jewelry, while eliminating the substantial fees, wait, and uncertainty associated with large auction houses and online jewelry auctions.
Many people believe that auctioning Tiffany jewelry is the best way to obtain a best cash offer for their items. Beyond traditional auction houses like Christie’s and Bonhams, there are internet auction portals like eBay and new online auctions specializing in Tiffany diamond rings and fine jewelry.
However, if you have never tried to auction Tiffany jewelry, you may be unaware of all that needs to be considered when making a smart selling decision. So, let’s cover some of the important issues now and explain why thousands of clients have chosen Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers as the best place to sell Tiffany & Co. jewelry and diamond estate jewelry from other luxury brands.
Should I Auction Tiffany Jewelry at an Auction House?
Sellers who wish to auction rare Tiffany & Co. jewelry that is valued into the five and six figures often look toward a prestigious auction house like Sotheby’s or Christie’s, who have long traditions of selling estate jewelry from the world’s most legendary brands.
What these sellers often do not realize is that auction houses charge more than just a commission on the final sales price. When auctioning Tiffany jewelry, there are also associated fees which can ultimately add up to 40% of the final hammer price.
In other words, after waiting up to six months for the Tiffany jewelry auction to take place, you may end up receiving only 60% of the final sale price (IF your Tiffany item sells). And if your Tiffany jewelry does not sell for the reserve price, you will actually lose money—because you still will be charged photography and processing fees.
That is why so many sellers of Tiffany rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets choose to sell their item(s) to Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. We often can provide you with a generous cash offer that comes close to the final amount you might have received when auctioning your Tiffany jewelry through a traditional auction house—and there is no wait or hidden fees attached.

What About Auctioning Tiffany Rings at an Online Auction?
In the past couple years, some online jewelry auctions have emerged which promise to get you more money for your Tiffany diamond rings, pendants, and necklaces. It is always a good idea to approach these online jewelry auctions with caution.
Keep in mind that an online jewelry auction is only as good as its network of buyers–and it takes many years (if not decades) to establish a strong international network of Tiffany & Co. jewelry collectors and engagement ring buyers.
The only online jewelry auctions worth considering are those who have a deep background in Tiffany jewelry that can be easily verified. Their Tiffany “experts” should provide first and last names, so their credentials and experience can be assessed. And the business should be registered with the Better Business Bureau with an A rating.
Also be aware of the potential for inflated Tiffany appraisals when dealing with online auctions that sell Tiffany diamond rings and jewelry. An inflated Tiffany jewelry appraisal is how an unscrupulous online jewelry auction can convince you to sell your Tiffany item with them. The final sales price could be well below that initial Tiffany appraisal, and you could be on the hook for selling your Tiffany jewelry at that much lower price.
Check whether the auction website is publishing prices from past Tiffany jewelry auctions. While the auction prices you see may be higher than what your local pawn shop or jewelry store offered, it could be thousands of dollars less than what a professional jewelry buyer like DEJB would pay you for your Tiffany ring, pendant, or earrings.

Should I Auction My Tiffany Diamond Ring on eBay?
When it comes to auctioning Tiffany jewelry on eBay, this generally works best only for those who are established fine jewelers who have bricks-and-mortar businesses.
There are simply too many fake pieces of Tiffany jewelry on the market. Thus the potential for fraud is too great for most buyers to risk spending thousands of dollars on a Tiffany diamond ring or pendant—even with the increasing safeguards that eBay has put into place.
Sellers should also take into account the hassle and time involved in setting up a proper and professional looking eBay listing for their Tiffany & Co. jewelry—including well-written text descriptions, quality photographs, etc.
In contrast, selling your Tiffany jewelry to Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers is very easy and fast. By using our highly-secure Sell Tiffany From Home service you can be guaranteed a fair and prompt cash offer for your Tiffany jewelry, while having complete confidence in the security and confidentially of the process.
