Decluttering Your Jewelry Box: How We Can Help with Your Spring Cleaning

decluttering your jewelry box

Now that you’ve had time to settle into the New Year, it’s time to declutter and make room for the new things that 2022 will bring. It’s the time for spring cleaning, and there’s no telling what you might find hiding in the back of your closet, corner of your attic, junk drawers, or in those boxes in your garage. And here’s a pro tip: add a “Sell” pile to your “Keep,” “Trash,” and “Give Away” baskets. As you get into the spirit of the season, decluttering your jewelry box and other places can also allow you to cash in in the process!

Decluttering Your Jewelry Box this Spring

When decluttering your jewelry box, you’d be surprised what you can get back when you sell your preloved items. You could be sitting on extra cash for a date night, new shoes, a tank of gas, and more. One person’s old or unused jewelry, coins, and valuables are our treasure! So, bring in your stuff, and let us take a look to see what we can offer you back in cash or check the same day.

And if you’re thinking you can’t bring in a piece of jewelry to sell because it needs a little TLC, think again! We buy used and broken jewelry as well as the new stuff. Come in and allow us to value your haul—a handsome payday might be in your future!

Coins & Collections

You don’t have to have an entire coin collection to make a visit worth your while. A single coin can get you a worthwhile offer. It’s well worth it to have our experts evaluate the worth of any coins you may be unsure of. 

We Take Sterling Silver Flatware & Hollowware

A particular relic of the past that usually holds a lot of sentimental value—but doesn’t get a lot of use—is sterling silver flatware and hollowware. These are the pieces in the wood case that may be a family heirloom or inheritance. If you have both flatware—forks, knives, spoons—and hollowware—coffee pots, tea kettles, platters—they can take up a good bit of space.

If you can tolerate parting ways with yours, we’d love to take a look at it and see what we can offer you. We determine value based on the weight of the items that are sterling silver. Take a look at this video to help you determine if your flatware and hollowware is real silver.

10 Minutes or Less

One of the best parts about working with us is that we don’t just value your valuables, we value your time too! Our evaluation and offer process usually takes 10 minutes or less, depending on the size of your haul. There’s no reason not to head our way after decluttering your jewelry box, junk drawers, and more!

We love meeting new people and helping long-time customers, alike, so stop by and show us what you’ve found. We’re conveniently located on University Drive in College Station!

Why We Love What We Do at David’s Jewelry & Coin Exchange

david's jewelry and coin exchange

David’s Jewelry & Coin Exchange is owned by David and Danelle Weaver, a husband and wife team with over 30 years combined experience in the jewelry and coin industry. They love what they do and that they get to be a part of the Aggie community while doing it!

What We Do

Buying, selling, and trading jewelry, collectible coins, gold and silver bullion, Louis Vuitton, and Texas A&M collectibles means we are around a lot of high-value items every day. As great as it is to admire the new, vintage, and rare pieces that come in daily, that’s not the best part about what we do or why we love what we do.

David’s Jewelry and Coin Exchange Is Part of the Community

Being in industry for over 30 years, we’ve formed relationships in the Aggie community, and we’re known around town. We love seeing our customers in the Brazos Valley! Beyond that, we also have an online eBay store, and we love serving our online customers across the country.

As mentioned, we have the great privilege of serving the students, athletes, staff, faculty, and alumni of Texas A&M University. Our ties to this close knit and beloved community are stronger than diamonds (pun intended). We are continually grateful to have such a close bond and working relationship with Aggieland and its amazing people.

We Love, Love!

If you’re looking for an engagement ring or wedding set that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else, we’re your go-to! We have a vast inventory of one-of-a-kind rings in every style and taste. We also have many loose diamonds in different cuts that are ready to be added to a setting to make a custom piece. We love that we get to play a small part in two people’s love story. Helping couples pick out their lifetime ring is truly a blessing that we don’t take lightly. 

We Believe in Return Appearances

The David’s Jewelry & Coin Exchange jeweler has years of experience repairing broken necklaces, bracelets, and watches and resizing rings. We find a special joy in seeing an old, broken piece of jewelry turned into a new custom piece that will be loved for generations to come. 

Whether we are buying or selling jewelry, coins, or bullion, we love getting to know the people of the Brazos Valley and being a part of their celebrations and milestones!

We’d love to get to know you, too! Stop by in person or shop with us on our eBay store. You never know what you’re going to find!

Reasons to Sell Your Unwanted Christmas Valuables to Us

christmas valuables

We’ve all been there: so excited to open a Christmas gift from a family member, friend, or coworker. Then we open it to find something just a bit disappointing. And it’s not that you’re ungrateful! It’s just not your style. You won’t get much use out of it, so it’s going to end up gathering dust. Gifts are hit or miss. When they miss, how do you decide what to do with them? Keeping them will only further clutter your house and take up space that you don’t have to spare.

Sell Your Unwanted Christmas Valuables to Us!

You know what they say: one man’s unwanted vintage watch is another man’s treasure. If you’re not sure what to do with a Christmas valuable gifted to you, consider selling it to us. There are a few good reasons to let us take those gifts off of your hands for you. Read on to find out what they are.

  • Walk Out with Cash

Unlike other preloved and resale jewelry stores, we don’t just buy your jewelry for melt costs. Most of our items are sold to customers and cherished for another lifetime. Because we buy to sell, we pay more than other stores. This means more money in your pocket. This is a better alternative than returning your Christmas valuables to the original store. If you return it, you’ll only receive a store credit or be able to exchange the item for something of equal or lesser value. It also helps you avoid the awkward conversation of asking for a gift receipt from whoever gifted you the present—if not included in the gift packaging.

  • It’s Hassle-Free

With resale websites, you have to deal with shipping and transporting to the buyer. And with shipping, there can be delays and even package loss. With us, all you have to do is bring your item into the store, we evaluate its price, and then you’re able to walk out with cash or a check. There’s no worrying if a money transfer went through or if the buyer is trustworthy. It’s also faster. It usually takes no more than ten minutes to assess the value of your item and get you your money.

  • We Take Broken Items

Whether you received the item damaged due to shipping or you accidentally broke it yourself, you don’t have to worry about having it fixed before you sell it to us. Our expert jeweler can repair all manner of damages to jewelry, so it’s like new when we put it out for display.

So come on by and show us what you’ve got. It’s exciting to see new jewelry pieces, whether they’re rare or common, estate or personal, broken or brand new. We’d love to do business with you!

Why We’re the Go-To for High-Quality Holiday Gifts

Estate Jewelry Makes an Excellent High-Quality Holiday Gift

We’ve been serving the Bryan/College Station community for over 25 years. In that time, we’ve built up an inventory of over 3,000 estate pieces of jewelry, coin collections, and gold and silver bullion. Many of the items you find here are no longer in circulation or are one-of-a-kind items themselves. Usually, the older it is, the rarer it is, too.

If you’re looking for holiday gifts that are high-quality, but also less likely to be seen around another’s finger, neck, or wrist, we’re your go-to! We have rare pieces that you won’t find anywhere else.

Create a One-of-a-Kind Holiday Gift

If you want something exclusive, nothing quite says, “I love you,” like a custom-made piece of jewelry. When you build something from scratch with us, you’ll be able to choose from 100’s of diamonds, including GIA certified. If you already have a design in mind, our team can help you build the piece of their dreams—knowing they’ll never see someone with anything like it.

If you want to make something with even more sentimental value, bring in a starter piece for us to work with. Some customers start with a family heirloom diamond or ring setting to build off of. This makes the piece especially special to the giver and the recipient knowing it’s been passed down through generations, and they will get to be a part of that.

Complete a Collection

The coin collecting community is expansive and passionate. Whether you’re a collector yourself and know exactly what you’re looking for or know someone who is and would like to gift to their collection, we can help you. Our inventory of coins is large and changes daily. It includes Morgan Silver dollars, Peace Silver dollars, Half-Dollars, Buffalo Nickels, mint sets, proof sets, and more. Have a specific coin you’re looking for? Come in and see us.

Unique Pieces to Love

Don’t forget to browse our collection of fine jewelry, sterling silver, and turquoise jewelry. Looking for something to wear to a dance or a new, everyday statement piece? We’ve got you covered with vintage white and yellow gold pieces or more casual necklaces, rings, brooches, and pins. You’ll also find single pieces of sterling silver as well as matching sets.

One of the allures of our store is our exquisite assortment of turquoise jewelry. Squash blossoms, conchos, belt buckles, and money clips are just some of the unique items you can walk out with today.

We’d love to help make your gifting dreams come true. Contact us if you’re looking for something specific, or come see us on University Drive East!

What to Know When Needing a Jewelry or Coin Appraisal

Do you have a collection of jewelry or coins that you need appraised? Are you unsure if your jewelry or coins are worth anything or do you know they are valuable but need to appraise them to insure them? Here  is some information to help you get the appraisal you need.

There are two types of appraisals that we provide for jewelry and coins.

There may also be a charge for this service on very large collections but that is determined on site.
  2. Item Identification and Written Appraisal
    Should you need a written appraisal for insurance, estate or financial reasons, bring your items to our store and our expert associates can walk you through the formal appraisal process.For jewelry, we will gather information, take photos and measurements so you can take your jewelry home with you as we work to write up the appraisal. This process generally take less than a week.For coins, we will need for you to leave the collection with us so that we can set aside time to research, identify and value each coin. This process generally takes a week.

Appraisal Costs

For onsite, quick appraisals of value, the service is free. Come in anytime with your item and we are happy to assist while you wait. Some exclusions may apply depending on the size of your collection.

Written appraisals for jewelry are $55 for the first piece of jewelry and $35 for each additional piece. If you have a large collection that you need a written appraisal on, we offer bulk rates. Please call for more information.

Written appraisals for coins are $100/hour.

If a collection is too large to bring to our store, we can go on-site for the appraisal. Please call us for more information on this service.

For more information on what is included in the written appraisal, please see our Appraisal Service page.

Tips for a Successful Appraisal

  1. Bring your jewelry or coins to our store.
  2. Don’t worry about cleaning, sorting or researching your items ahead of time.
  3. If your items are broken, bring them anyway. We can still appraise them and even fix them if you are interested in that service.
  4. Come anytime. No appointment necessary. We strive to make this process pain free and easy to knock off of your todo list.
