We are very confident that you will keep us in mind when selling items in the future.

It can be difficult to trust a buyer. However, with our first-class services, there is no need to take our word for it as the quality of work that we do leads to us getting a great many enthusiastic reviews. See below for what one very happy client has to say about us:

β€œLet me start by saying I usually never leave reviews. I was very apprehensive about selling my jewellery not knowing who to trust and whether I would be ripped off!

I was recommended Burlingtons and liked the idea of a home visit. Daniel Ives arrived promptly and instantly made me feel at ease with his very down-to-earth friendly manner. The entire process thereafter was seamless, professional and with due care to my situation.

We agreed on monies and the immediate bank transfer was done without any hiccups. I would highly recommend Daniel Ives and Burlington’s a very professional and pleasant experience indeed.” – Sangeeta Bhari

We operate across the UK from our offices in London, and we are a well-known and established part of the antique community. Our experience and levels of service make us an outstanding choice when you want to sell vintage brooches and any of the other high-value items that we buy.

How Much Will I Get For My Brooches?

Certain things will affect the value of your gold vintage brooches. For example, a brooch from a unique or notable maker might fetch a higher price. Certain styles, such as Victorian bar brooches, may also be quite collectable – so specific styles can be quite valuable in the antique market.

As so many factors are in play, you need to visit us to determine the true value of your items. But, rest assured that gold is a stable commodity so you will get a good price. We also boost the amount you will get with these value-adding service features:

  • Zero auction fees.
  • Zero deductions.
  • Free and no-obligation appraisals.
  • Private appraisals in your home.
  • Instant cash payments.

Frustratingly, we cannot estimate the value that we will arrive at for your old gold brooches. Without a thorough inspection, it would be impossible for us to estimate what we will offer and it is unethical for us to give you a figure if we do not possess the full details of what you have for sale. However, as long as your brooches contain gold or diamonds, we will want to buy them.
