(SD SP)  Age teaches that life changes. Relationships evolve for both better, and sometimes worse. Families grow & move. We deal with illness & death. What we like and want changes too. There are things we accrue and hold near to our hearts. Then, other things we have may no longer hold the same meaning or reflect the style or personality of who we’ve grown to become. 

Throughout life, we accumulate and shed. While we have things we treasure, sometimes we want to give our things away. Other times we recycle possessions by selling them perhaps with hopes of trading a possession for an experience, education, bills or something that we find more fun and reflective of our current style.

Recently I became aware of an interesting site called Worthy which is a jewelry selling partner. Basically it works like this: You submit your item and speak with one of their representatives about the fine diamond(s) or jewelry you wish to sell.  Safely, securely and fully insured by Lloyds of London — you ship the jewelry that you would like to recycle into cash or replace with a more fitting piece. Worthy’s gemologists clean, photograph, and professionally grade your jewelry while staying in touch the entire time. They’ll give you an estimate and help you understand what your piece is worth. At that point, you set a minimum reserve price. Next, the jewelry goes up for auction to Worthy’s exclusive network of industry buyers. Upon sale, you are paid via your preferred method, minus Worthy’s success fee. 

With over 1,000+ reviews on Trust Pilot, Worthy looks like a worthy partner because their business objectives are partnered with yours: Getting the best price for the fine jewelry that no longer “fits” your personality. 

If you have fine jewelry that you no longer wear or appreciate quite the same way — maybe it’s time to put it up for auction at Worthy and turn it into cash, new experiences, a piece more fitting, an education, a down payment for a car, a move or something else.
