Other brands will almost always take more time. Older diamonds are often damaged and require re-cutting. I did buy 2 bottles of tums but I only bought one box of the breathe right. Evaluating and pricing a luxury watch is a little more complex than it might seem. If you are not sure if your materials actually contain gold, silver, platinum, or palladium bring them into any of our 6 Colorado locations 7 days a week for a no-obligation evaluation. I for one will never go there again and suggest others dont either. Luxury watches do hold some value.

James February 24, at 9: Chuks March 7, at 4: But we will buy that diamond as long as it is.
Always keep in mind that any broken diamond will ultimately need to be re-cut. Re-cutting a diamond causes weight loss, and has other possible consequences, so that diamond is immediately worth less; plus re-cutting a diamond cost money. But my diamonds is an antique! Doesn't that make it more valuable? Actually, not so fast! Older diamonds are often damaged and require re-cutting.
They almost always require re-polishing. The exceptions are high-end rare stones fashioned into old styles with huge price tags. If you have an old stone in a shape like that, the diamond has to be re-cut into a modern shape in order to be sold.
Re-cutting and re-polishing a diamond requires work, and that work cost money. To be frank, old diamonds are just old. They are not MORE valuable simply because they are old. Why don't you give prices on the phone? Determining a cash value for your diamonds requires that we can physically evaluate the rarity of each stone one an individual basis.
There are many many factors that go into how we arrive at a cash offer for your diamond. We need to physically evaluate each of the specific characteristics that determine the rarity of your diamond in order to know how to make a cash offer.
The best, and only, way to get a cash offer on your diamond is to bring it into the Gold Rush location nearest you. Do you buy colored diamonds? Naturally colored diamonds are rare and are typically not found in easily accessible jewelry stores i. Colored diamonds that you see advertised on TV are very very low quality diamonds that have been treated, typically with radiation, to change their color. These kind of color-treated diamonds have zero value after they leave the jewelry store.
Do you buy other semi-precious gemstones? Does my diamond have to be certified? Most diamonds are not certified, or not certified by impartial diamond grading companies. So, unlike most of our competitors, we do not have any requirements that your diamond needs to be certified in order for us to buy it. What is a GIA certification? GIA is the international standard in diamond grading.
You can read more at www. Are there other certifications? Yes there are other certification companies. But none of them have the same value as a GIA certification. Please bring any other certification paperwork with you; however it does not necessarily mean your diamond will be more valuable. What about my diamond jewelry appraisal? Any jewelry appraisal is generally engineered for insurance purposes and nobody will truly stand behind that dollar amount on that appraisal. The dollar amount on your appraisal is often about double the retail value or retail price paid.
It does not, in any way, dictate the true market value of your items. Please take a moment and read the fine print on your appraisal.
The dollar amount on your appraisal and the true market value for your diamond is almost always very very different. Can you give me a written appraisal on my diamond? No, we are not licensed appraisers. Any value we give you on your diamond is a genuine offer to pay cash for that diamond right then and there.
Will your offer change while I shop prices? The diamond market does fluctuate. Ultimately, it is driven by the retail buying public and that group is very trendy. If you bring a diamond to us on Monday, for example, and we make a cash offer for that diamond, the offer will generally be the same later in the week. If you chose to wait a month or two, the offer is likely to change to match the current diamond market at that time.
When you are buying or selling a home, you get an appraisal from a state licensed appraiser. That licensed home appraiser is licensed by the state, the same way real estate agents are licensed and governed by the state, and held to very strict standards about how he or she will ultimately come to a value.
They have guidelines, processes, and procedures written into law as to how they go about their job since that appraisal sets the bar for what that home is worth and subsequently a sale price is reached from that information. The only people overseeing a jewelry appraiser are the trade organization they belong to. No regulations, no government oversight or standards, etc. What a great deal!
Take just a moment and think about how much sense that makes…. Appraisals have little to zero reflection of the actual retail price which can be 10X the actual true market value of the jewelry or diamond. The fine print written into almost any appraisal is also interesting to take note of.
He is paying true market value for the setting and the diamond. You will typically never recover the full retail price of your jewelry or diamonds regardless of how you sell them. They use these inflated appraisal values to give the perception of big discounts. The insurance man charges you to insure your jewelry and diamonds based on the appraised value, even though that value is in no way related to the actual replacement cost or retail value of your items.
How much lower would your premiums be if they used the actual replacement value for your jewelry and diamonds? Do you also think that the insurance company is going to pay the appraised value if you have a claim when they already know the replacement value is far less?
Please also not that common luxury brands like Rolex, Tag Heuer, Omega, and Breitling can be valued and purchased, typically, in a few minutes.
Other brands like Chanel, Cartier, Hublot, Patek Philippe, etc take a little more time to put a value on as those brands are far less common.
That translates into far less buyers for those brands thus it takes more time to put an aggressive cash value on them. Is there a limit to how much you will pay for my watch?
We will use our evaluation process to determine a true market value for your watch and then make an all-cash offer. No luxury watch is too expensive, or off limits, for Gold Rush. Gold Rush deals in high-end luxury watches. Seiko and Citizen, for example, make fine watches — but they are not of the same caliber of a Tag or Rolex or similar luxury brand.
Does my watch have to be in good working order? No, but a non-working watch is worth significantly less than the same watch in complete and working order. The cost to refurbish and repair a non-working Rolex, for example, can be thousands and thousands of dollars.
Does the original box and paperwork make my watch worth more? Depending on the brand, the extra links can be several hundred dollars EACH! That cost money and reduces the value of your watch. Can you tell if my watch is fake? Yes, most of the time.
We will thoroughly evaluate your watch before we make any offer. If you are unsure, call and make an appointment to have it evaluated. In some cases we will pay small amounts for counterfeits to use as training materials for our staff of Specialist. Will I get retail prices for my watch? Your watch is used and will be bought and sold as a used watch.
Luxury watches do hold some value. We have all received gift cards as rewards, gifts, or for returned merchandise at some point in time. The total volume of gift cards sold by retailers in the U. Bring all of your unused and unwanted gift cards to any Gold Rush location and we will pay you cash on the spot for them! We will verify those balances and make an all cash offer on the spot. We do a little paperwork and you get to enjoy your immediate cold hard cash anyway you choose!
If we can not get an independent balance verification then we can not purchase your cards. For most brands this is simple and easy. Other brands require more work, like having an on-line account with that merchant for instance, to verify the balance. The very minute we produced such a list it would be out of date. The best thing to do is come into the Gold Rush location nearest you and we can tell you quickly and definitively if we can buy your card or not. For instance, a Walmart gift card must be at least 5 days old before we can purchase it due to fraud.
A Target gift card and a Starbucks gift card must NOT be connected or registered with your on-line Target or Starbucks account in order for us to purchase it. Again, the best thing to do is bring your gift cards to the closest Gold Rush location and let our Specialist give you all of the details.
Do you exchange gift cards? No; we pay cash for the unused balance of your gift card. The ONLY way to get full value for your gift card is to spend it with the merchant. Apply some common sense here.
Why would any business, or any individual, give you full value for your gift card? If you want full value for your gift card you will have to spend the gift card with the merchant.
What do you pay? These factors change constantly so the best way to find out is to stop by and let one of our trained Specialists make you an all-cash offer. The entire process can be done in a few minutes, start to finish!
How long does it take? And there is some paperwork required for every Gold Rush transaction. But the whole process should only take a few minutes from beginning to end. Do I need an appointment? You can give a traditional, plastic gift card or order an eGift Card, which will be sent to the recipient's email inbox. Either kind can be redeemed at Walmart or Sam's Club stores or at Walmart.

The cards can be used:. As you make purchases, the gift card amount decreases. You can add to the gift card balance anytime at a Walmart store. You can also check your card's balance anytime that's convenient for you in stores or online.
