Loans Against Designer Jewelry


RK & Co. specializes in fine jewelry collateral & personal asset pawn loans for both modern and vintage jewelry.

Our GIA (Gemological Institute of America) trained gemologist will provide a fair valuation and will help those who wish to sell jewelry understand the premiums that signed jewelry and period pieces deserve. Our jewelry pawn shop specializes in signed jewelry, and we’re routinely purchasing and loaning against Cartier.

Founded in 1847 by Louis François Cartier, Cartier is been best known for their fine jewelry collection. The brand earned its reputation as “The Jeweler of Kings, the King among Jewelers,” pioneering the combination of platinum and diamond. Source:

  • Widely recognized as experts in Cartier, RK & Co. Luxury Lending is the premier buyer of high-end watches in the Atlanta area and, in fact, the state of Georgia. We are a family-owned jewelry store with deep roots in the community and a proven track record in truly having the interest of the consumer in mind. We are also an established buyer of fine watches locally and nationally through online channels. Thanks to our exclusive network of private Cartier buyers and collectors, we are able to regularly offer our clients more money than any other watch buyer, including online auctions.

    Founded in Paris, France, in 1847 by Louis-François Cartier, the company remained under family control until 1964. The company maintains its headquarters in Paris, although it is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Compagnie Financière Richemont SA in Switzerland. Cartier is well known for its jewelry and wristwatches, including the “Bestiary” (best illustrated by the Panthère brooch of the 1940s created for Wallis Simpson), the diamond necklace created for Bhupinder Singh the Maharaja of Patiala, and the “Santos” wristwatch of 1904. Cartier has a long history of sales to royalty and celebrities. For example, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been seen wearing the Cartier Ballon Bleu timepiece. Source: Wikipedia

  • Although signed goods are our specialty, fine earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, and pendants made of gold or platinum are certainly of interest to our jewelry buyers.

    When making a loan against or selling signed jewelry, please remember to bring any boxes and paperwork, including original receipts and GIA certificates.

    If you plan on selling us a diamond, the famous foursome of clarity, cut, color and karat are central to a fair appraisal by our diamond buyers. We use the Rapaport Diamond Report, an internationally recognized guide to determining the value of diamonds. If you have a certification from the Gemological Institute of America, the European Gemological Laboratory, the International Gemological Institute or the Gemological Association, please bring them in and we’ll take this paperwork into account. For sapphires, rubies, and other precious stones, we welcome certifications from the Swiss Gemological Institute and Gubelin.
