Selling Estate Jewelry in Montreal


Selling Estate Jewelry in Montreal

There are a multitude of reasons for selling inherited diamonds, diamond rings or estate jewelry. Since diamonds are a store of wealth and maintain value over time, it is always possible to monetize this asset even in troubled economics times. Sometimes it’s because the jewelry has gotten out of style or doesn’t fit your personal taste or simply because you don’t wish to wear it anymore.

Whatever the case may be, Laferriere & Brixi Diamantaires is an important buyer of estate jewelry with an emphasis on single diamonds of over 1 carat, regardless of their characteristics. We buy old European diamonds, large chipped diamonds, diamonds of any shape and colour, with or without certification. Because we have an advanced gemological laboratory equipped with the latest tools, we can uncover any characteristics that might contribute to the value of your jewelry.
