Selling Jewellery in London ?
About selling old jewellery
As antique jewellery buyers we are always interested in buying quality antique, vintage jewellery or ‘second hand’ jewellery at our shop in the West End.
We appreciate that as times change and different jewellery styles come in and out of fashion so do our tastes. Many customers use Susannah Lovis to refresh their jewellery collection by either selling or part exchanging their collection with us in our central London jewellery store.
This service is perfect for anyone looking to update their jewellery look or private collection. Items can be sold in exchange for cash, or valued and then put towards a new item from our exquisite range of high-quality items in stock.
In our Burlington Arcade Jewellery shop we offer a full sale appraisal service for clients which we offer on a walk-in basis, with no appointment necessary. Our expert team of in-house buyers are able to give you a quote for the value of your piece on the same day, and depending on peak times can also offer this while you wait.
Selling enquiry form
Please send us as much detail as you can using the form below. If you have had previous valuations then include these with your photos (photos of documents are fine). This will enable us to better understand the piece without seeing it in person.
Due to the volume of enquiries received we are unable to respond if the item(s) submitted are not of interest to us. This can be for a variety of reasons – we may already have similar items in stock for example. If you require a valuation for insurance purposes please see our insurance valuations page.
Files must be smaller than 5mb each to be uploaded.

What can you expect when selling Antique Jewellery :
If you are looking to sell a vintage or antique piece, perhaps a family heirloom or an item that has been inherited, our expert team will examine the item and thoroughly research the piece to find out everything about it. This will include its full history, who made it, and when it was made.
The primary focus in our antique jewellery purchasing will be to examine the quality of metal that has been used. So, for example, whether it is Gold, Platinum or Silver as well as what pureness it is which is defined and measured by its carat. The measurement of carat when selling antique or vintage jewellery is one of the key components in defining an item’s potential worth. Many customers do not know what the carat of their jewellery is, This if often the case for gold rings and necklaces, but our team are able to assist you and find out everything about the item.
We will also inspect any gemstones that have been used in the piece and look at their individual quality. Where we are able to make an offer to buy jewellery we will make a payment to you on the same day. We are happy to have a look at all customers’ antique jewellery items with no obligation to sell.
We also buy ‘second hand’ and vintage Jewellery
In addition to buying antique jewellery in central London we also buy newer pieces from established brands and vintage items, which is anything that is 25 years and older.
We particularly specialise in buying signed and designer pieces and are able to offer same day payments for these items. If you are looking to sell Cartier jewellery or sell Tiffany jewellery for example, we are able to offer premium prices for these brands.
We offer a hassle-free, reliable service which can often be completed on the same day, with no need for the customer to have to take photos in order to sell an item online.
