How do you value my Van Cleef & Arpels diamond jewellery ring, necklace or earrings?
We will let you know if your Van Cleef & Arpels’ pieces are from one of their celebrated high jewellery collections such as the Alhambra®, Perlée™ or Frivole®. More modern Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery featuring colourful, bejewelled petals in full bloom, dainty miniature forest creatures, four-leaved clovers and other dreamlike emblems can be assessed for market value against the maker’s own online resources.
Van Cleef and Arpels has a distinct, recognisable, high-quality persona. Being able to lend on a Van Cleef and Arpels piece from such a beautiful range of jewellery is quite frankly a privilege, and we can offer owners attractive finance in return. From leather-strapped, delicate watches, to dainty butterfly bracelets, floral necklaces, and charms, there’s an option to borrow funds on most pieces from each Van Cleef & Arpels collection – depending on various valuation criteria.
Most important valuation factor are:
1. Material type:
- Platinum gold
The stonepresent within the necklace, watch, bracelet or other fine piece. As an example, when appraising your Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery our pawnbrokers tend to use the following fine gemstones as criteria:
Diamonds are classic, exquisite gems which never go out of style, and are present in collections such as the Perlée diamonds range. This includes highly sought-after pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings, mostly entwined with stunning gold.
A dazzling red gem found in many of the Solitaire rings, which can be valued at several hundred thousand pounds depending on the condition. The floral Van Cleef & Arpels Folie des Prés collection also features these regal gems, created to celebrate the beauty of wildflowers and the harmony of nature; a real selling point when visiting our Central London pawn shop.
Shades of deep, enchanting blue make sapphire a rigid choice. As well as classic Solitaire rings, the Brume de Saphir earrings, as part of Van Cleef & Arpels’s Palmyre collection, are a hint to the enchanting shades of the ocean and are hand-crafted with delicate gems. If you own a pair, they can release over a hundred thousand pounds in capital, when in good condition.
Deep emerald green is an exotic, sought-after gemstone which oozes elegance in many forms. Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery which includes emeralds consist of historic pieces, as well as the Pomme de pin clip, which is a timeless addition to the collection and can be pawned for a terrific value when presented in solid condition.
3. The 4Cs + an additional one!
Our pawnbrokers will always take into account the four Cs of any diamond gemstone when deciding on a loan price, but bear in mind, Van Cleef & Arpels prides itself on taking this to the next level. They have introduced a self-imposed constraint in the form of ‘Character’, taking it up to a 5Cs grading scheme.
The value of Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery at pawn shops heavily depends not just on competitiveness with other businesses, or current market value, but also on the condition of the piece at hand. Rarer pieces will, of course, be harder to sell, but can come at a greater price.
Although it can often be quite subjective for some shops, if you have a popular piece which is several years old, and isn’t in the best condition, it can hinder the price. For example, medium-sized Cosmos earrings originally bought for approx. £70,000, with several years of wear without the original packaging can be pawned for £20,000, resulting in a -70% deduction. Alternatively, high jewellery in fabulous condition can be pawned for near to, if not the same amount as originally sold for, even when purchased several years ago. So it really does pay to keep items such as original packaging, boxes, and jewellery pouches.
Finnaly, finer varieties of diamonds can also sometimes come with a laboratory report, special certificates from the GIA, HRD (Diamond High Council), and Gem Lab – all of which will confirm the authenticity of your Van Cleef & Arpels Jewellery, allowing our pawnbrokers to estimate borrowing levels better.

Selling vs. financing your Van Cleef &
Arpels Diamond Jewellery
You can sell numerous different jewellery items from Van Cleef & Arpels to a pawnbroker, but the impact of doing this is sometimes not even worth the research, time, and the emotional impact. Using your Van Cleef & Arpels earrings, engagement or wedding ring, necklace, bracelet and similar jewellery as collateral for a loan is a much more beneficial way to source money as opposed to selling in entirely, for numerous different reasons.
First thing’s first, remember that pawnbrokers are unlikely to value your Van Cleef & Arpels at its fair price, and on many occasions you don’t get anywhere near what it’s truly worth. The reason behind this is that many pawnbrokers who actually buy jewellery as opposed to lending against it, will have to sell it on for a profit, so the likelihood of getting a good (or even semi-acceptable) deal for your Van Cleef & Arpels is few and far between.
Let’s not forget about how final actually selling an item is. Van Cleef & Arpels is a prestigious and very expensive brand, and regardless of how you became the owner of a piece, whether that was through a special gift, a treat to yourself, or inheriting from someone close to you, it’s likely the thought of parting with it forever isn’t a nice once.
At New Bond Street Pawnbrokers, we only lend against fine jewellery like Van Cleef & Arpels, up to the term of seven months, so you won’t be without the item for too long. Once the loan is repaid, the jewellery is back with you after being kept safe and secure. The emotional toll of selling such a special piece of jewellery is one many are not familiar with, and believe us when we say if you don’t have to, then it’s best not to find out.

Can you pawn broken Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery?
Generally speaking, the majority of pawnbrokers don’t tend to loan against Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery which has been broken, and sometimes even damaged. This does come within reason though – it mainly depends on the extend of the damage of the piece, or how badly it has been broken. The industry in general looks at the rule at any gold, platinum or diamond jewellery can be sold for the weight of precious metal or gems, but of course, any damage or breakage makes it worth less. It’s worth popping in to see us, as we will review each broken or damaged jewellery piece on a case-by-case basis. For example, that Van Cleef & Arpels pendant might just contain a rare diamond which is worth a substantial amount.
Can you pawn stolen Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery?

Pawn Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery store, especially the reputable ones, will work with the police about any stolen jewellery that has yet to be found. Any pawnbroker regulated by the FCA can be charged with receiving stolen goods, especially jewellery, and will have to report suspicious activity to the police instantly. Here at New Bond Street Pawnbrokers, we always ensure we comply with all FCA regulations, as it is our legal responsibility to report any suspicious activity to the police.

The same might apply to someone who finds your lost Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery, might be looking to finance or sell the item at pawn shops. This, however it never the case in the eyes of the law. The Theft Act 1968 means an individual is guilty of said crime if they dishonestly appropriate property (including cash) belonging to anothe. If a piece of jewellery is found, it will continue to belong to another, until the point where the rightful owner confirms they no longer want, or need said item.

Our rigid application process ensures proof of identity and ownership throughout, so you can rest assured.
Can you pawn engraved Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery?
Engraved Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery obviously makes it a very personal piece. As part of the lending process, if any broker, including us at New Bond Street Pawnbrokers, needed to sell the Van Cleef & Arpels piece for reasons like the loan payment not being completed during its term agreement, engraving would reduce the value. Although, it’s worth keeping in mind that it really does depend on the piece in question. For example, some types of engraving will make a piece even more valuable, especially if this is paired with rare/sought-after gemstones or materials. This is also the case if the jewellery has a historical or special background. However, we’re always on hand to advise on this, even if it’s over the phone to start, and if you’re able to bring the piece to us, we can review in full, and confirm how much said engravement is impacting the value.
