Exquisite Gold & Gems, Thunder Bay’s Jewellery Store, is the first choice for many who want to sell old, unwanted, and broken jewellery. We buy all of our Estate jewellery directly from our customers. Our professional appraisers carefully select only the best pieces for our Estate Jewellery Collection.
If your jewellery is in good condition, we highly recommend that you sell your jewellery privately for best value. If you are not sure of what your jewellery is worth, we offer professional appraisal services so you can find out the value of your jewellery for insurance purposes or to help you set a resale price*.
However, if you simply do not wish to go through the time and hassle of selling the pieces yourself or if your jewellery is broken, please contact us and we can arrange a time to meet. In most cases, we pay scrap value for older jewellery. However, unlike some gold buying businesses, we will often purchase diamond and gemstone items. Payment can come in the form of cheque or store credit, whichever you prefer.
From time to time, Exquisite Gold & Gems will acquire certain pre-owned pieces that are stunning in their beauty, intricacy, and craftsmanship – beautiful pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. Most jewellery that we accept for our Estate Jewellery Collection comes to us in near-perfect condition requiring no more than a polish. Other pieces require minor repairs to bring them back to useful life.
Either way, our Estate Jewellery Collection always offers something unique making them great gifts for very special occasions. Plus, estate jewellery usually sells for a fraction what it would be if it were new. You get great pieces at great prices!

*An appraisal is not a guarantee of resale price. As with buying and selling any type of item, you may get more or less for the piece due to sentimental value, craftsmanship, demand for the type of jewellery you are selling, and other factors.
