CIRCA Celebrates 10 Years In Chicago: It’s Time To Consider Selling Your Jewelry!

October 24, 2013 • Bling/Jewelry, Chicago, Fashion Blog


Do you have jewelry you don’t wear any more that is just sitting in a drawer collecting dust? You may need to think twice about why you keep it and maybe should consider selling it. CIRCA, the leading international buyer of jewelry, diamonds and watches is right here in Chicago and is celebrating its ten year anniversary. Established in New York in 2001, CIRCA has redefined the experience of selling your jewelry by providing trusted expertise, the best value and immediate payment. CIRCA is the leading buyer of jewelry worldwide and the first company solely dedicated to this concept.

I had the opportunity to meet Ruth Thuston, Director of CIRCA Chicago at a breakfast at NOmi at the Park Hyatt on Tuesday. She brought to light some great reasons for selling your jewelry. If you sell it to CIRCA you will get the best price from industry accredited and highly trained jewelry buyers. Your heirlooms won’t be ground down and destroyed for its gold, so you can feel confident someone else will be able to wear and appreciate it!


Here are some of Ruth’s guidelines to help make it easy to update your jewelry box this season and beyond.

• Are you wearing the brooch you inherited from your great cousin 20 years ago, or is it just taking up space in your jewelry box? All jewelry, diamonds and watches have value.

• Balance function with emotion: oftentimes people hang on to items bequeathed, because they aren’t sure how to gauge the value. Your jewelry collection should be balanced with pieces you care about along with a few select family heirlooms. Invest in your family’s future by selling pieces that you are able and willing to part with.

• Stay true to you, while staying on trend: do you have classic style with a box full of costume jewelry? Do you prefer bold, modern looks but stick with pearls because that’s what you own? If you have outdated items, consider selling them as an opportunity to build out your jewelry collection with new pieces you will feel confident wearing.


How it works

At CIRCA you will receive the highest value for your jewelry. CIRCA does not charge commission, insurance or photography fees and provides several convenient evaluation options at no cost to you. CIRCA also offers immediate payment. The settlement of personal jewelry assets will not be constrained by an auction schedule or the uncertainty of consignment.

No item is too large or too small. CIRCA will settle assets as small as $50 dollars and up to $100 million and beyond.

Why not sell the jewelry you have that you never wear? I’m already going through mine!
