Expert Jewelry Buyers
HOW DOES THIS WORK????
There are many reasons you may want or need to part with jewelry. Many items may be out of style, are never worn and the pieces hold no sentimental value to you. These items you can easily turn into cash. The experts at Allura Fine Jewelers will evaluate all of your unwanted jewelry and provide a fair offer to purchase some or all of your pieces.
Call Allura at 847.433.2444 to schedule an appointment to bring your jewelry, precious metals and stones. It can be a single piece or a suitcase full of items. The experts at Allura will sort through everything and help you decide what you to sell and what you may want to keep. You may come in with pieces that are especially rare and/or valuable that may be worth keeping.
After everything has been sorted and examined, you will be offered a price—for the lot or piece by piece, however you are more comfortable. A check for the accepted offer will be issued on the spot.
Allura makes the entire process fast and easy, and look forward to finding a new home for many of your items.
