How Appraisals Works
We first discuss your expectations regarding the sale or trade of items. If you are looking for updated paperwork, please se appraisal services.
Appointment and Visit
Schedule a VIRTUAL or in person appointment to view items. IF the consultation is at a place of business, then an appointment will be made to VISIT THE BUSINESS for purchase.
Call / Visit
We can conduct the appraisal at your place of business, residence or the Mayflower offices located in Towson, MD.
Gold Buying Services
Mayflower is a subsidiary of Nelson Coleman Jewelers who has been buying gold in Baltimore longer than anyone. Since 1856, we have strived to provide the most secure, ethical, and enjoyable experience to every customer that we visit. Unlike the majority of diamond and jewelry buyers, we sell directly to our own private clients and collectors, enabling us to pay the highest possible prices for your gold, silver, jewelry, diamonds, and watches. We strive to save each and every piece you sell us, and we only melt items when we absolutely have to.
The Buying Process
We can come to your home, office or the place of your choosing to discuss your needs. However, all purchases must be made at the client’s residence or the Mayflower Estate Buyer’s offices in Towson, MD. There is never any pressure to sell, and our industry professionals will carefully examine your jewelry and discuss what your best options are. Should you wish to sell, payment is immediate. The entire process is strictly confidential.
How It Works
We first discuss what your expectations are regarding disposal of your items for cash or trade or if you really are just looking for updated paperwork (see appraisal services).
Appointment & Visit
After we determine your expectations we would schedule an appointment to come and review your items for consultation. If the consultation is at a place of business then an appointment will be made to visit the residence for purchase.
Offer / Payment
If you move forward with the cash or trade offer there is no consultation fee. If you decline the first 45 minutes of the consultation are free, after that each hour is $75. At the time of consultation an offer would be made; if the offer is accepted then payment is immediate. Consignment is also an option on a select basis.
