How we work with you

Our Process

We buy and sell high-quality antique or vintage jewellery, diamonds, gold and platinum for fair prices. You can rely on our many years of expertise, time and effort that we put into each piece to ensure a high standard, using top goldsmiths and world recognised gemmological laboratory reports.


If you are wanting to sell antique, inherited, estate or vintage jewellery.

Vintage Jewellery makes the process of selling your jewellery a simple and trustworthy experience. Our showroom in Zurich is the ideal place for a discreet evaluation. Our emphasis is on a fair, trustworthy and transparent process with the offer carefully calculated according to the value, rarity and condition of the piece of jewellery. We do expect to see signs of wear on antique and estate jewellery, with our experience we will price accordingly. Often showing our clients their jewellery under our microscope.


We like to buy antique and contemporary jewellery, signed pieces, period jewellery like Art Déco or Art Nouveau, forties or fifties jewellery.

Any precious piece that is very pretty and can be sold. Signed jewellery from Swiss jewellers like Gübelin, Meister Jeweller, Paul Binder, Gilbert Albert, Bucherer or Kurz, including international brands like Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Tiffany & Co, Pomellato, Boucheron, Chaumet and Bulgari. It is very important that signed pieces of international brands have certificates with their original boxes, including invoices.


The provenance of jewellery pieces is really important for the initial classification and we ask that as much detail as possible (or even a wonderful story) is included. Photographs, invoices, certificates and original boxes.


With any piece of jewellery, we do have to physically see it, before we can make a fair offer.

Sending photographs via email and or via SMS is a good idea to establish if we are initially interested or not. Once we have examined the piece, we can quickly determine the value and make you a non-binding offer. Please note: with many gemstones, we often first need to establish the origin and or treatment, before we can make an offer. We pay fair daily prices for gold and gemstones, with the intention of reselling the antique pieces.


Once the valuation is completed, we make a non-binding offer to you.

If you accept our offer we will pay out in cash or depending on the amount we will make a bank transfer into your account. If you decline our offer, we will return your jewellery to you.
