How We Determine Value.
We work diligently to be the best pawn shop to inspect your item and provide our clients with excellent customer service. Discreet Collateral Loan (DCL) has a network of international buyers that we work with and we pass that value onto our clients. The value of your item depends largely on what the current market conditions are. We base this on several factors, such as the price of gold, silver, or platinum, and what diamonds are currently selling for on a wholesale/retail basis, and lastly the demand for your particular item.
Estate Jewelry and gold are usually valued based on the current market values. We typically pay more on name brands regardless of the condition of the jewelry. However, for your standard jewelry items, the weight of the metal, diamond size and quality are the determining factors.
For luxury handbags or designer shoes, the condition of your item absolutely effects the value. Handbags that are in demand and in excellent condition will be valued closer to the latest retail amount. This would 100% be the case for Chanel and Hermes handbags. Whereas that same handbag that has been used heavily, will come with a lower amount. It also helps to have the original box and paperwork.
Fine watches such as Rolex, Audemar Piguet, Omegas and Breitling are always in demand. The condition of your watch and if it comes with original box and papers definitely helps in the evaluation.
Diamonds - Does size matter? When it comes to diamonds, we pay close attention to not only the size, but also the color, cut, clarity and shape of the stone. It is very helpful in the evaluation of your larger diamonds for it to come with a GIA certificate. The diamond market is always fluctuating and typically we will price your diamond accordingly.
