You’ve inherited jewellery that you know you will never wear.
You have treasures hidden in your safe-deposit box that no longer have sentimental value.
Since your retirement or major lifestyle change, certain jewels no longer suit your style.
You plan to use the proceeds for a worthy purpose such as financing your children’s or grandchildren’s education or home down payment.
Your taste has changed and you want to upgrade your collection.
It’s more practical to leave money to your children than try to fairly divide a large assortment.
At this time in your life you want to share your good fortune and donate funds to charity.
You’re the executor of an estate.
The qualified staff at Dupuis has up to date market knowledge and decades of experience
to evaluate your pieces and suggest a realistic pre-sale estimate.
Your pieces will be well presented in glamorous catalogues seen by sophisticated buyers around the world.
The competitive bidding environment and our global reach ensures you get the highest price possible for your jewellery.
We reach local and international buyers through many channels, including our catalogues, media advertising, publicity events, social media, mobile apps, and our website.
Prior to the auction, we conduct public and private viewings for prospective buyers.
In certain cases, Dupuis can provide a partial advance payment before the auction. And remember, every aspect of your consignment is confidential.
