With the country shutting down because of COVID-19, we've been looking for ways to help our consignors and local businesses to earn more for their jewelry (engagement rings, earrings, bracelets, fine gold, fine sterling silver, diamond or other fine gemstone jewelry), watches, timepieces, coins, couture and designer label fashion pieces and accessories, desirable smalls, and collectibles such as trading cards, vintage video games -- all from the comfort of their homes. With quite a bit of gusto, we are introducing the latest initiative born from our search ... consign by mail.

BRG BlogWe've streamlined the process as much as possible to maintain stay-at-home orders and social distancing. Now you, too, can consign your valuables with our easy "mail-in" service.

What is Consign by Mail?

Consign by mail is exactly as it sounds. It's a safe and secure way for consignors to submit their valuables for sale. The process is easy, seamless, and transparent.

Contact. Consign. Collect.

BRG Blog

Essentially, those interested in consigning their valuables simply contact us. We will send out an electronic consignment agreement. When the agreement is returned to us, we send out a consignment kit which includes shipping box, pre-paid return postage (BRG provides appropriate tracking and insurance along with a prepaid shipping label), packing materials, and instruction card. The valuables are shipped back to us. The valuables are unpacked in a secure location to be inventoried, cataloged, photographed, and placed in one of our online auctions. Consignors will receive their consignment payout check (all will favorable commission rates) shortly after the sale closes.
