Once CANARY has reviewed your jewelry information, we will be in touch to provide details such as handling fee on returned items, as well as our address to send your jewelry. We may also request photos of your treasure at this time.
Upon receipt, we will have a gemologist review the item(s) and a listing price will be determined. We will email you our proposed price before your treasure is posted on our website.
Your item will be highlighted on the New Arrivals page of our website, waiting to be found by another jewelry-lover.
