At Bruford & Carr we understand that fashions change and you may wish to trade in items from your collection. We are always interested in buying unwanted jewellery items and in particular high quality antique, vintage or pre-owned pieces at our store in London’s West End.
Bruford & Carr takes pride in its reputation for offering fair prices and immediate settlement. This provides an excellent alternative to selling at auction where long lead times, uncertainty of success and high commissions present an expensive, awkward proposition.
Typically auction houses charge sellers commission of 15% +VAT, whilst buyers are charged a premium of 25% + VAT meaning that as much as 50% of the overall value of an item typically stays with the auctioneer. Furthermore, there is likely to be a 3-6 month lead time from the moment an item is submitted through to the eventual receipt of funds; and of course there is no guarantee the item will be sold.
Bruford & Carr’s buying-in service is perfect for anyone looking to update or refresh their jewellery collection. Items can be sold with immediate payment, or the value can be put towards a new piece from our exquisite jewellery collections.
If you are thinking of selling or part exchanging your jewellery, please email us with photographs in the first instance, then either send items by registered post or bring them to store in person for valuation & sale guidance.
