Inheriting jewelry can be a bittersweet experience. While it carries sentimental value, it also presents an opportunity to unlock its worth by selling it. However, navigating the process can be overwhelming, with considerations ranging from sentimental attachment to the complexities of the market. Yet, one crucial aspect often overlooked is choosing the right buyer. Enter Westlake Gold, your trusted partner in turning inherited jewelry into liquid assets with transparency and reliability.

Ready to find out how much your inherited jewelry is with? Contact Westlake Gold today for a free consultation and jewelry cleaning.

Assess Your Inherited Jewelry

Before diving into the selling process, take stock of what you have. Evaluate each piece based on its material, craftsmanship, and sentimental value. Items crafted from precious metals like gold, silver, or platinum, adorned with high-quality gemstones, tend to fetch higher prices. Sentimental value is significant, but remember, it doesn’t always translate to monetary worth.

Research Potential Buyers

Not all buyers are created equal. It’s essential to conduct thorough research to find a reputable and transparent buyer. Westlake Gold stands out in the crowd with its sterling reputation for fairness, honesty, and professionalism. With decades of experience, they offer a seamless selling experience, ensuring you get the best value for your inherited treasures.

Transparency is paramount when selling inherited jewelry. Westlake Gold understands this and operates with full transparency at every step of the process. From the initial appraisal to the final transaction, you’ll receive clear explanations and fair assessments. No hidden fees, no shady dealings—just transparent, straightforward transactions.

Joel took time and patiently explained the value of my jewelry and how he calculated it. I believe I got a good, honest deal and I would highly recommend him.

I could not have been more pleased and satisfied with Joel at Westlake Gold. If you have spare jewelry and gold that you want to get top dollar for, this is the only place that you need to go. Do not go to downtown LA. Do not go to any jewelry store and especially do not go to a pawn shop! Joel is the only man that you need to see. He is professional, kind, and as sincere and honest as they come. He has a low overhead for his business and he is without question going to give you the best possible price for your valuables. I didn’t even know that some pieces that I had were worth more than I had expected… but Joel being as honest and sincere as they come made sure that I had what I needed and did with a gracious understanding and very friendly demeanor. After leaving this place, I was both impressed and so happy to see that there are still people out there that do care about others. Do not waste your time and go anywhere else… this is the man to see!!!

The team at Westlake Gold was both kind and professional. Joel is very knowledgeable and fair - and I really enjoyed working with him on the sale of some estate jewelry. I highly recommend!

Dana Barrett July 10, 2023

*Respectful, surprisingly great appraisal, very safe and honest.* Joel meets his customers in a clean and neat office inside of an office building, instead of many others in the area. This allows me to feel more comfortable to start with. He was very respectful, friendly, and courteous. The best part comes with the pricing. This was not my first time releasing old gold and jewelry, and I received way more than I thought I would have given my past experience with other jewelry buyers. Thank you, Joel. Wish I had met you in the past, but sure am happy I do now.

What a hidden treasure, pun intended. Overwhelmed with a large collection that I wasn't sure was costume or the real deal. impressed with how each piece was tested even the ones marked for authentication. professional and honest.

janie ahlberg May 14, 2023

If you are looking for an honest appraisal and fair deal, this is the place to go! I walked in with what I thought was seven 1oz Canadian silver dollars worth $25 each, turns out they were 1oz Canadian platinum coins with worth $1,000+ each!! He operated with 100% integrity and patience with me. He took the time to educate me on coins. I will defiantly return!

Patrick rohn September 10, 2020

I bought two rings from Joel and was blown away by the experience. He is extremely honest, professional, and knowledgeable. He normally doesn't make jewelry sales to walk in customers, but just so happened to have exactly what we were looking for. And he even arranged to have our rings resized and polished. They are beautiful and exactly what we wanted.
