Preparing Your Jewelry For Auction
To achieve the highest possible price your jewelry undergoes a rigorous cleaning process before videos and photographs are taken.
Free Secure Shipping
Prepping your jewelry for auction will require you to ship it to us. To do that you can either schedule a FedEx pickup, or drop it off at a nearby staffed FedEx location. Shipping is fully covered by Divorce Your Ring and fully insured FedEx.
The professional jewelry cleaning process involves carefully removing dirt or tarnish to improve its appearance and make it sparkle for the auction.
Video & Photo Shots
Your engagement ring is professionally photographed in high-definition from every angle so that buyers can get a closer look and place higher bids with confidence and trust.
We partner with objective industry-leading labs such as GIA, GHI and IGI who inspect every piece we receive. If time is of the essence we will occasionally use an independent Gemologist to do do an appraisal.
Divorce Your Ring will create a dedicated listing for your jewelry that includes a professional description, video and photographic shots and a third party grading report. Once the auction is live, buyers are able to view this listing and bid on your jewelry
A reserve price is the lowest amount you would be willing to sell your jewelry for. Once the external grading report for your jewelry is ready, we will generate a recommended reserve price for you. At this point you can choose to either accept it or set your own reserve price and start your auction.
Our Buyer Network Includes The General Public
Professional industry buyers are registered on our platform and compete for various jewelry pieces sold with us. However; we also market to the general public through our extensive websites and social media.
