    BUYING

    When it comes time to sell your jewelry, you should expect the same expertise and reputation that you do while buying your jewelry. For over 148 years Springer's Jewelers has been trusted by customers across Maine and New Hampshire for all their jewelry needs - including when it's time to part with it. We believe that selling your jewelry should be easy, informative, and, most of all, honest. That's why we've put together this in-depth look at our process...

    • Precious Metals (Gold, Silver, Platinum)

    • Designer Jewelry
    • Fine Swiss Timepieces

    Gold Buying

    What Items Qualify For the gold buying process?

    • Items that contain no stones and are made of silver, gold, or platinum

    • Items that contain melee stones of low quality
    • Items that contain semi-precious stones under 3ct or 10mm
    • Items that contain precious stones under .50ct or 5mm

    How Is An Offer Calculated?

    We will sort your jewelry by its metal and stone content. Then we'll weigh each group and give them a cash offer based on today's gold prices. Stones that fall below a weight requiring a separate offer are weighed as gold.

    Do I Need An Appointment?

    No. Stop by anytime! However, having an appointment does allow us to better prepare to give you (and your items) the attention you deserve. Just give your preferred store a call, answer a few preliminary questions about the item(s) you plan to bring, and we'll find a time that works for you!
