The Good Old Gold Consignment Service
So you’ve visited the pawn shops.
You’ve visited jewelry stores that purchase and trade estate diamonds and jewelry to get the “highest prices paid”.
You may have even considered or tried selling your diamond online to no avail.
There is an easier, much less complicated way that will guarantee you the most money possible for your diamond short of you trying to sell it for more than it’s worth.
Welcome to Good Old Gold’s newly featured “Consign Your Diamond & Jewelry” service! Here’s how it works.
You have a diamond or jewelry item valued over $2000. Next step is you’ll fill out the form at the bottom of this page so we can estimate what you’d be able to get for your diamond. If you are happy with our estimate the next step is shipping it to us for a live evaluation.

FAQ's on Good Old Golds Consignment Service
- Q: How much commission does Good Old Gold Inc. make on a diamond/jewelry item we leave on consignment?
A: Anywhere between 10-50% depending on the value of the item and what kind of policies we place on your diamond/jewelry item. We are going to make a higher percentage on lower valued items and a lower percentage on higher valued items. Should we, at our discretion choose to back your product with Lifetime Policies, allowing the public to get back what they paid for your item with Good Old Gold Inc. we will make a higher commission than if we don't back it with Lifetime Policies. With consignment you, in essence become our wholesaler/supplier and we, as your distributor make our commission accordingly. We've been selling online since 1998 so we have a pretty good handle on what fair market value is.
- Q: How do I ship my diamond/jewelry items to Good Old Gold Inc.?
A: Firstly ... DO NOT SHIP anything until you've filled out the form above and have received an RA# from us. Packages without an RA# will be refused. We must know of and be expecting your package. If you have your jewelry items insured, FedEx or UPS should be fine but you'll want to make sure with your insurance company first . Otherwise if they are not then we highly recommend shipping via USPS (United States Postal Service) registered mail and they will insure your package for the full amount. If you ship via USPS do not tell them what is in the package, just the value you need to insure it for. Overseas clients will just follow the necessary laws in their own country for shipping insured items to the US. If you have any questions you can email us here.
- Q: How fast will my item sell?
A: Our most popular question! :) Answer: We don't know. Some items we take on consignment sell within 24 hours after publishing. Some take weeks, some take months and in some cases even years. :) The success of sales on the internet are based on supply & demand as well as the amount of exposure. We're going to give it some of the greatest exposure it will get on the web and you can even share the link with friends/family/Facebook page, etc. but we can't control the first part. On average we generally have items sold within 1-3 months.
- Q: How long can I leave my item on consignment?
A: For as long as it takes to sell or until you want it back. We suggest leaving it on consignment for at least 3 months though.
- Q: Is there any "fine print" I should be aware of?
A: Yes. The only thing you need to be aware of with the consignment process is if you send us your items to feature for sale on the web and we spend the capital publishing, photographing, generating the necessary Reports, etc. and then you decide to take the item back there is a non refundable $250 publishing fee + return shipping on loose diamonds and $100 + return shipping on standard jewelry items (not loose diamonds).
