Estate Sales

Estate Sales is a popular feature at Bob Thompson Jewellers. There is always a unique piece of jewellery to be discovered or a beautiful stone to be reset in a brand new customized ring. If you would like to sell your jewellery, gemstones or watches through us, bring them in. There is no appointment necessary, nor is there any charge, to have your jewellery examined by our gemologists to determine its resale value in our estate collection. In an effort to make this process as simple as possible, customers are under no obligation and may retrieve their items from the estate at any time.

No Discounts are offered on Estate pieces.

We also purchase jewellery for materials only; based on gold/silver content and/or stone value at fair market prices.  All such sales are handled with compassion and discretion as we value our customers and strive to build relationships to last through generations.

Insurance Replacement 

We can replace almost any piece of jewellery for insurance claims by recreating it from a drawing, photograph, or brief description. Additionally, we are able to redesign your heirlooms to suit your personal style and everyday needs. Make an appointment with our Insurance Specialist to work through your claim.
