How Can I Get Money for This Pretty Valuable Piece of Jewelry I Have?

A while ago, my aunt had a replica of the Titanic's 'Heart of the Ocean' necklace made. This particular replica was made in Santa Monica and has a big blue sapphire as the heard, and there are 80 very small diamonds on the chain. Since then she's passed, and I need a bit of help with college. How can I get compensated for this? Thanks

  1. If your going to sell it let your family know,they might want to buy it from you,always remember what means little to you is priceless to someone else.I’ve seen this happen so many times I get sick to my stomach even thinking about it.

  4. you won’t get compensated for that. You might get a fraction of what she paid for it and you will probably be sorry later on that you ever sold it.

  5. Short Answer: You are never going to get back what your Aunt paid for it.

    Long Answer: Custom pieces like this are always big money makers for a jeweler and you are likely to only get a fraction of what she paid if you try to sell it. I would suggest trying to sell it on eBay or you can try one of the many jewelry buyers around. I have used American Gold & Silver Exchange a couple times this year and have been happy with their offers.

    Good Luck!

  6. Hi there,

    You have a great piece of jewelry in your hand.

    First of all, you have to figure out the value of stones in the necklace. There are so many online calculators to determine the price of the stone.
    Never ever go to a jewelry store to sell it ’cause your jewelry worths much more than what they will offer.

    You might try to put it on a sale @ Amazon. Please do not rush to sale it.

    Good luck with your studies,
