The term brooch describes the original French word “broche” – a popular piece of decorative jewelry to wear on jackets or other clothes as something like a pin.

How we estimate the value of your brooches
Some buyers like local pawn shops or gold buyers only go for the gold. Often they only determine the quality of the containing gold, they weigh your brooch and offer a price based on the stock market price of gold. But that’s by far too superficial. Beside the gold also facts like the designer, the manufacturer, the gemstones, the craftsmanship, the original owner, the motif or the theme can affect the value significantly. Well, it’s self explaining that a diamond brooch reflects a very special value compared with a sober silver brooch but it’s not all about diamonds and other gemstones. Brooches which were made during a war-period or brooches made to honor important historical events are really common but sometimes rare, hence highly sought-after from collectors and valuable. It’s a sin to sell such brooches for the material value to melt it down. So many unskilled gold buyers destroy historical artifacts every day. In contrast to these guys, it’s our mission to spot brooches or jewelry with historic importance to prevent them from smelting. Furthermore it’s a huge benefit for you if you sell your brooch with us because we are able to offer higher prices than most competitors do. Your brooches are in best hands with reDollar.com.
