Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept costume jewelry?


No, unfortunately costume jewelry does not hold value to benefit the charity.




What type of items do you accept?


We accept rings, bracelets, brooches, watches, earrings, necklaces and coins. Please inquire about other jewelry items not listed.




Are donated items tax-deductible?


Yes, according to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a taxpayer can deduct the fair market value (FMV) of the item. Fair market value is the price a willing buyer would pay for the item and is generally dependent of the condition of the piece. By law, a charity cannot advise you on the worth of your donated item; it is the responsibility of the donor to determine the item’s worth. Learn more about fair market value here: IRS.gov




Will I receive an itemized receipt with my donation?


Absolutely! You will receive both an itemized receipt and the appropriate tax receipt.




Should I get an appraisal?


Because many pieces of jewelry (especially those designed with gems) are specialized in nature, we always recommend our donors consult with a reputable appraiser. The appraisal should include (but is not limited to) a description of the piece, the style, cut and setting of the gem, along with whether or not the piece is considered contemporary or antique. If classified as antique, the possibility of having the item redesigned, recut, or reset should be reported in the appraisal. The stone's coloring, weight, cut, brilliance, and flaws should also be documented on the appraisal. Although sentimental personal value has no effect on FMV, if the donated piece was once (or is currently) owned by a famous person, its value might increase.




What courier should I use to mail in a donation?


You may mail your donation via FedEx or USPS C.O.D. Purchasing insurance for an item over $5k is always recommended.
