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 Harry Winston.

Harry Winston was founded in New York City in 1932 with Harry Winston, himself, as the founder. He was soon crowned the “King of Diamonds” and “Jeweler to the Stars” for his high-end creations. One of the most notable pieces he acquired was the 45.42-carat Hope Diamond, a heart-shaped grayish-blue diamond crown centerpiece, which was passed along to King George IV of the United Kingdom. Today, it is found in Washington DC as part of the Smithsonian Institution displays. Source:

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.

On occasion, we may request that you leave your items with us for further evaluation and authentication.

Get started on your fine jewelry loan by filling out the form to the right. We will then schedule an appointment if your item is of interest to us.
