Types of Jewelry We Buy

If you're like many people, you've got a few old pieces of jewelry or scrap gold lying around that you're unsure what to do with. You know they have some value, but you're not sure what they're worth and don't know what to do with them. Thankfully, we make it easy. Our expert appraisers will evaluate any piece of jewelry or scrap gold you like, and we stand by our estimates as fair and accurate. We purchase a wide range of jewelry pieces, including:

Customer Stories

Nick P.:

I visited John Laughter Jewelry after inheriting a large collection of costume jewelry from my mother. Most of it was costume jewelry so I just assumed it wasn’t worth anything. After John evaluated my inheritance he found 3 pieces of jewelry that were worth $10,000, $5,000 and $4,000! I am so pleased I took the estate to John Laughter Jewelry, because of their honesty I had an extra $19,000 to put my boys through school.


Susan G.:

I went and saw Grant to sell my mothers Rolex. I didnt take his offer at first and shopped around, even mailed it to some dealer in New York. He beat all the other offers by $2000, the first time. I wont visit any other shop. - Susan


Cornelius W.:

Tammy bought my engagement ring when my girl and me split up... got a new cbr1000rr. Best decision ever.


Jill J.:

My husband and I went to John Laughter Jewelry in Waynesville to have Tammy look at some jewelry that I had and could no longer use. She took the time go over each piece and give me her opinion of the value. Tammy made this a very pleasant experience. She takes her time and never makes you feel rushed. That is very important to me. When she was done, she explained the choices I had and I made the choice to sell most of the pieces. I will definitely be back to the store in the future. My husband and I were very impressed with everything about Tammy and all the people involved with John Laughter Jewelry.
