Knowledge Center

JewelRecycle is North Carolina’s trusted buyer of precious metals, fine jewelry, diamonds, and more. Whether you are downsizing, decluttering, or in the process of an important life transition, JewelRecycle is here to help you gain value from possessions you no longer want or need.

With more than 140 years of combined experience in the jewelry and precious metal industries, JewelRecycle’s staff is comprised of highly trained professionals. We are passionate about guiding our clients through our transparent process to help them discover the worth of their fine jewelry, precious metals, and other items.

As a family-owned local business, we take pride in offering our customers an exceptional, no-pressure experience. Unlike many other jewelry and precious metal buyers, we never take your belongings into a back room for evaluation. Our efficient, accurate assessment takes place right in front of you. As we work, our friendly staff takes the time to explain each step and answer all of your questions. Regardless of whether you decide to sell your items to us, we strive to make your visit fast, comfortable, and informative. As a result, over a third of our customers refer family and friends.

We are proud to offer our customers the most competitive rates for the items we purchase based on up-to-the-minute valuations. We buy gold, silver, platinum, palladium, fine jewelry, diamonds, watches, holloware and flatware, dental crowns and bridges, coins, and more.

Our inviting stores are located across North Carolina in Raleigh, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Wilmington. No appointment is necessary to receive your fast, zero-obligation offer.
