Is Pre-Owned Tiffany & Co. Jewelry High Quality?

Updated: Mar 4

There’s no question at all that Tiffany & Co. makes the best jewelry on Earth. Their brooches are lovely and have been since they introduced them. A life-sized flower made of gold and silk—who could ask for better than that? Their necklaces and pendants are exquisite. Their bracelets add a luxurious appeal to any outfit, and their earrings make a beautiful woman stunning. Even their charms are just as elegant and lovely as they are playful. Their engagement rings? Well, Tiffany & Co. engagement rings are legendary, and almost every engagement ring on the market from almost any company uses a variation of the ground-breaking Tiffany setting. This kind of quality, though, can sometimes make Tiffany & Co. jewelry a bit out of reach for the average customer’s budget, so it’s only natural that you might be considering pre-owned Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Of course, considering something pre-owned might make you nervous. What kind of quality can you expect?


First and foremost, you should keep in mind that any diamonds in the jewelry are almost certainly just as perfect as they were when they were first set. Diamonds are the most durable naturally occurring substance on Earth, so it’s almost impossible to cause them even a scratch! Tiffany is famous for diamonds, and you can be certain that a Tiffany & Co. pre-owned diamond is just as beautiful today as it was when it was first cut. However, gold and platinum are not like diamonds, so you’ll want to take a very close look at the metal. You’ll also want to be sure to buy from a reputable dealer who can verify the authenticity of the item and also make any small repairs that are necessary. We recommend you buy pre-owned items from jewelers like us, licensed jewelry buyers who have to follow a very specific set of guidelines when they purchase the items in the first place.
