Get the Best Collateral Loan Terms For Your Jewelry
If you have a valuable piece of jewelry and you need help regaining your financial footing or you simply want some cash immediately so you can make an essential purchase, a collateral loan from Raymond Lee Jewelers is a great option.
First, you won’t have to give up your jewelry forever. You can pay it back over time with our very reasonable loan terms. Second, you don’t need to go through a credit check and all the hassle that comes with an unsecured loan. Not to mention, the time it takes to actually receive the loan. With our collateral loans, you get cash in hand on the spot.
We proudly offer the highest price and the best terms for collateral loans in all of Boca Raton, regardless of your credit standing as there is no credit check needed because your jewelry is used as collateral in case you default on the loan. What’s more, our appraisal is completely free, as well as pressure-free, so you have nothing to lose by making an appointment with us. The best part is, we are super flexible on the loan terms, so if you can’t complete payment by the end of the agreement, we will offer new repayment terms for you. Most jewelry stores offer around 60-day terms, ours can go as long as 10 years!
So, if you have prized jewelry that you don’t want to sell off, but you need cash now, definitely consider our collateral loan service. There really is very little risk for you thanks to our fair, flexible loan terms.
Should I sell my jewelry or get a collateral loan?
There are two questions to ask yourself to answer this.
Do you want the jewelry back?
Do you think you will be able to manage the monthly payments for the loan term?
If you want the jewelry back and you know you will be able to pay the loan off, then a collateral loan is what you should go for. Conversely, if you don’t really care about the jewelry and you don’t want to deal with monthly payments and interest fees, then selling it outright is the way to go.
Selling your jewelry is pretty straight forward, we appraise it, make an offer, then you can decide if you want to sell it or not. If you decide to sell it, you get cash immediately.
Collateral loans for jewelry is also very straight forward. Here are some of the key points for Raymond Lee Jewelers’ collateral loans :
- No credit check or applications
- Cash immediately after accepting the loan terms
- Low-interest rates paid each month
- Monthly payments
- 60+ day loan terms (up to 10 years)
- No fees for renewing loan (all you have to do is pay the monthly minimum)
- Your assets will be 100% secure in our state-of-the-art vault until you have paid off the loan and you come to pick them up.
So, if your jewelry has sentimental value and you know you will be able to meet the terms of the loan agreement, then go for a collateral loan. If you don’t wear the jewelry anymore, it doesn’t hold much meaning to you, it’s broken, or not your style anymore, then definitely sell it. The fine jewelry you have lying around the house is literally cash just waiting to be handed over to you.
How much money will you get when selling your jewelry or for when accepting a collateral loan?
It depends on what you are selling. For scrap gold and platinum, and most jewelry that is not from a top designer brand, you will get the market price for the precious metal and the loose gemstones we value based on a variety of factors, but mainly the size and the quality of the cut. Stones under 1 carat do not hold much value. Anything over 2 carats will land you a premium.
If you have a gorgeous private label piece that we can sell intact (not meltdown for the materials), then you will be looking at a higher selling price. As for designer jewelry from brands like Cartier and Tiffany, we pay more than the intrinsic value as well, as the jewelry is worth more than just the intrinsic value of the precious metal and stones.
For collateral loans, we will value your jewelry the same way we would if you were selling it. There is no limit on how much we are willing to pay. However, our average loans range from $1,000-$10,000.
How do we value jewelry?
Jewelry is valued based on its brand/manufacturer, condition, precious metal, gemstones, age, and the current market demand.
It will be impossible to say how much your jewelry is worth without looking at it. Fortunately, we offer free appraisals, so you have nothing to lose. You can set an appointment with us ASAP, or use our mail-in service as well.
What jewelry are we most interested in?
Fine Jewelry (earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles, rings):
- Gold Jewelry
- Platinum Jewelry
- Diamond Jewelry
- Gemstone Jewelry
Designer pieces will land you a premium, especially if they are iconic designs like Cartier Love Bracelets.
Designer pieces are worth the most: Tiffany, Cartier, Roberto Coin, Chanel, David Webb, David Yurman, Bulgari, Van Cleef & Arpels, Seaman Schepps, Schlumberger, Shreve Crump & Low, Faberge, Fouquet, Garrard, Georg Jensen, Asprey, Boucheron, and Buccellati.
The above is not an exhaustive list, so if you have a piece of jewelry from a different brand or a private label piece, don’t hesitate to contact us so you can make an appointment to have your jewelry appraised.
Why Raymond Lee Jewelers is better than a pawnshop?
When thinking about selling your jewelry or getting a loan, you probably first think of a pawnshop, but this is a major mistake as you will not be getting a fair deal when selling or pawning your jewelry to a pawnshop. Raymond Lee Jewelers is a much better option than a pawnshop for various reasons…
Selling Your Jewelry – Why We Are Better Than A Pawnshop:
First, we offer a higher price for jewelry because we actually know what it is worth. Most pawnshops don’t have the extensive knowledge needed to appraise jewelry appropriately. Because of this, they offer a lower price to reduce their risk. Put simply, they aren’t sure how much it will (or should) sell for, so they offer a lower price to the seller to ensure they turn a profit. At Raymond Lee Jewelers, we know exactly how much we can and should sell jewelry for and what the fair market value is for loose stones because we are experts in the field. Therefore, we can offer a price that is fair for both parties.
Second, Raymond Lee Jewelers has expert gemologists on staff and a state-of-the-art jewelry workshop with a master jewelry maker, so we can use scrap gold and loose stones ourselves, with no need for a middleman. This enables the seller to get a higher price for their broken or scrap jewelry as we handle everything in-house.
Third, we pride ourselves on fair business dealings, especially in times like this. We aim to build a long term relationship with our clients and customers so we would never want to lowball you. Sadly, the vast majority of pawnshops have a business model that is based on lowballing people so they can turn a profit.
Fourth, pawnshops deal with many items, not just jewelry. So, it will be much easier for us to resell your piece. This means we don’t have as much risk as a pawnshop, which allows us to pay a higher price.
Collateral Loans on Jewelry – Why We Are Better Than A Pawn Loan:
The answer to this is simple, our terms allow for longer payment periods, our interest rates are lower, and we offer more money. This holds true for even against the most upscale pawnshops. On top of that, we actually know the value of the jewelry at hand as we are expert jewelers and gemologists, where a pawnshop is more of a “jack of all trades”. If you want a good steak, are you going to Denny’s or a Steakhouse? We all know the answer to this.
All in all, you won’t find a better collateral loan deal in Boca Raton than you will at Raymond Lee Jewelers.
