Gold & Diamond Buying

Thinking about selling your gold and diamond jewelry you no longer wear? Come to Caleesi Designs Jewelers in Austin, Texas and sell your gold and diamonds. We can also help design you a new piece of jewelry from your old gold, diamonds, and gemstones. If you're interested in designing a new custom piece of jewelry, please visit our Custom Jewelry Design page. 

Just looking to say goodbye forever? No problem, we can give you a quote for selling your gold and diamond jewelry while you wait. If you're interested, and want to leave your jewelry on consignment with us, we can help you sell your special jewelry piece. We will also purchase high end watches from you.
How the Gold and Diamond Buying Process Works:
  1. Stop in at our Austin location at your convenience, no appointment necessary. We wait on customers by a "first come, first serve" basis.
  2. We inspect your metal for purity stamps and look over the metals and diamonds under magnification and test any metals if necessary. We then weigh out any metals and diamond(s) and quote you a price. We base our pricing off of current market value for all metals and diamonds. Our goal is to quote you the best and most fair price we can offer.
  3. If we, ourselves are not interested in your diamond(s), we have diamond vendors we can show the stone to for purchase. We can have a quote from our vendors within a few days. This does require leaving the diamond in our possession until that time.
What We Purchase:
  • Gold: Any karat of gold from 8K to 24K.
  • Sterling and Fine Silver
  • Platinum and Palladium
  • Diamonds that are 0.25ct or larger. Not sure what size you diamond is, we can help.​
  • High end watches. We must get a quote from our watch broker. Sometimes this can be done while you wait, and sometimes you need to leave the watch with us.
What to Bring:

If you happen to have any appraisals or diamond certifications, this can help move along the gold and diamond buying process. If you don't have either of these things, not to worry, we can still buy your gold and diamond jewelry from you. If we end up purchasing diamonds or gold from you, we need to see a government ID in order to purchase, so that that on hand as well.
