My name is Mike Jacobson, owner of Cook County Buyers. I provide a convenient alternative to selling your jewelry to a pawn shop or cash for gold store. Most people sell their diamonds, gold, sterling silver, or designer jewelry for much less then it is worth.

Because I specialize in designer jewelry and one caret and larger diamonds as well as antique pieces, I can pay a more competitive price for your items then the average gold buyer.

Sell your diamonds, gold, silver, and designer jewelry in Chicago! We buy loose diamonds, diamond engagement rings, and other diamond jewelry. Sell single diamond stud earrings and pendants, and better quality diamond bracelets for top dollar.

GIA Certified diamonds will be worth more! Designer signed jewelry from Tiffany & Co., David Yurman, Cartier, Van Cleef and others are highly desirable so we will pay the most for these pieces!

We also specialize in purchasing estate and antique diamond jewelry from the late 1800's and early 1900's.

I also buy scrap gold jewelry including old fashioned yellow gold and even broken chains, mismatched earrings, Sterling flatware, bullion bars, and coins. Larger quantities will bring higher rates!
