Cartier is synonymous with luxury and decadence. Founded in Paris in 1847, it has become a household name in luxury jewelry, popular for its iconic designs – such as the Love range. It is a highly popular and sought-after brand within the luxury jewelry sphere. This means that there are unfortunately a substantial number of counterfeit Cartier items on the market.

If you are looking to sell preowned Cartier jewelry, the first step in the selling process is always to gather any information and documentation that you have about your jewelry. This is helpful in ensuring that the jewelry you have is authentic and it helps to identify what model it is and which materials it is made from. However, unfortunately things do go missing and if you have misplaced your Cartier jewelry documentation, you are still able to sell it.

If you are looking to sell your preowned Cartier jewelry without the box and papers and don’t know where to start, these questions are helpful to keep in mind:



In an ideal scenario, you will have retained the original box and papers for your Cartier jewelry. This includes any of the following: presentation box, warranty card, certificate of authenticity or an information booklet. It can also include the original receipt, which if bought recently could even be a digital copy.

These original documents will help certify the model and authenticity of your jewelry and if it is to be sold on to a collector, these documents are often required.

Note: If you are missing this information you can still sell your Cartier jewelry.

As Cartier is a household luxury jewelry name, the items tend to have a good resale value. The value is determined on the model and condition of the jewelry as well as the materials it is made from and its age. Typically this falls anywhere between 25%-35% of retail price.

It is important to note however that if you have an appraisal from a jewelers, this determines how much your jewelry is worth in terms of insurance purposes rather than resale purposes.
