Whether you want to sell for instant cash or get a confidential and secure loan on your jewelry, watches, diamonds, gold, coins, or collectibles, we can assist you today!

Established in 1991, Watch and Wares Jewelry and Loan is a full-service jewelry store, with our main location in the downtown historic district of Orange, CA, and our collateral loan branch in the city of Tustin. We specialize in the sales and repair of luxury jewelry, watches, and designer handbags. In addition, we have many fine art pieces and collectibles available. If you’re unsure whether your item qualifies, please contact us via phone, and we will be happy to assess it for you.
We specialize in luxury watches, including Rolex, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, and many other luxury watch brands. Our luxury watches, both modern and vintage, are sold in good working order with warranties. Most have been personally serviced by our master watchmaker or (less frequently) were recently serviced elsewhere and have subsequently passed our inspection.
Watch and Wares buys and sells unique antique and estate jewelry from the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Mid-Century Retro Moderne, and Contemporary periods. We travel and search extensively to find beautiful exceptional luxury watches, designer and couture items, and unique pieces of fine jewelry. We can also often provide information to our customers about hard-to-find items.
Watch and Wares Jewelry and Loan has built our impeccable reputation over the years through buying and selling thousands of luxury watches; all varieties of jewelry, including loose diamonds, engagement rings, earrings, pendants & necklaces, and brooches; as well as rare coins, precious metals and collectibles at top-dollar value. Our customers love us because we offer instant cash in-store and provide outstanding customer service and integrity that only a family-run business possessing over 30 years of experience can deliver.
We provide instant loans for all types of jewelry, luxury watches, gold, silver, and other precious metals, as well as diamonds, coins, fine art, luxury goods, and other valuable items upon our assessment in-person. As a certified cash buyer and licensed broker, we are able to provide easy, secure, and confidential loans using your item as collateral, so there are no credit checks or income verification. We can appraise your item within our stores while you wait, frequently at higher values than our competitors offer.
Our collateral loan process at our Tustin location is simple and hassle-free. All of your personal information is kept completely confidential and securely disposed of. We will weigh and analyze your items one-on-one in our store, providing same-day payment to you, in cash if desired.
We have a master watchmaker, expert jeweler, and handbag restoration specialist on our staff at all times in order to ensure that your luxury items are examined, treated, repaired, and restored right the first time. If you would like an item that is both of quality and unique, particularly (but by no means limited to) heirloom-quality Art Deco filigree engagement rings or antique wedding rings, you have come to the right place!
Located in the heart of Orange County, Watch and Wares Jewelry and Loan has been a cornerstone of the community for many years. We’ve built our impeccable reputation by selling fine quality watches, jewelry, diamonds, and precious metals at fair prices, and by offering outstanding customer service that only a family-run business can offer.
Watch and Wares can service just about any watch, from antique pocket watches to modern wristwatches. We stand by our work, offering a one-year warranty when performing a full service on vintage timepieces and a two-year warranty on their modern counterparts. We can perform exhaustive cleaning and detailing, replace batteries, add new crystals, or provide any other watch service you might require. Watch and Wares always provides free estimates for these procedures as well, courtesy of our expert watchmaker!
Talk about experience! Watch and Wares can repair just about any piece of jewelry, whether you have rings, necklaces, bracelets, or anything in between. Our jeweler has over 35 years of experience in the industry. Our facilities have the latest tools and equipment, providing our jeweler with unmatched creative capability. We can also perform custom work, including rendering your custom jewelry from just a picture or drawing. Please come to us with a description of what you would like to create, and we can provide you with an estimate for the work, free of charge!
Watch and Wares can perform both verbal appraisals and professional insurance appraisals. In addition, we have a GIA-graduate gemologist contracted with us. Our decades of experience with vintage and antique, delicate pieces give us a distinct advantage over our competition. If you are looking for hard-to-find information on your estate jewelry piece, we are the jewelry store for you! We can tell if a piece is authentically vintage or a reproduction just by sight examination. If you do decide to sell your pieces to us, your verbal appraisal is free!
