Tiffany & Co. Collections are simply iconic. But you may not know that Tiffany & Co. wasn’t originally known for its jewelry collections. Instead it was marketed as a stationary and fancy goods emporium. Likewise, although Tiffany & Co. is known as a NYC brand, the company was actually founded in Connecticut. But it took less than a year for the booming business to relocate to 259 Broadway in Manhattan. Today, Tiffany & Co. items, including their iconic jewelry collections are in high demand the world over. But you don’t have to pay full retail price for designer jewelry. Although no two pawn shops carry the same inventory, some pawn shops do buy and sell all the iconic Tiffany & Co Collections.
Tiffany & Co. Collections in Ontario
Tiffany & Co. collections include luxury items ranging from bracelets and necklaces to rings and charms. Other collections include cuff links, accessories, and even baby items. Here’s a look at some of the most sought-after collections.
Return to Tiffany Collection
Tiffany jewelry is easily identified by its signature printing that reads “Return to Tiffany & Co. New York” The idea was born of keychains that were first inscribed with these instructions in 1969. The idea was to ensure that if the keychain were lost, the person who found them could put them in a mailbox to have them sent to Tiffany & Co. in New York. Today, the Return to Tiffany collection has become one of the brands most famous collections, with the slogan printed on everything from bracelets to necklaces.
Frank Gehry Collection

The collaboration yielded cutting edge designs that featured both traditional materials, and natural materials including stone and wood. Today, this collection remains coveted by collectors worldwide.

Reasons to Shop for Tiffany Collections at a Pawnshop
If you’re looking to add pieces from one of the iconic Tiffany collections to your personal jewelry collection, don’t forget to shop at pawnshops. The most obvious reason to check out the inventory in your local pawn shop is because you’ll save a fortune. You can reasonably expect to save 30-50% on luxury jewelry in pawnshops.
You may also be able to buy rare pieces that are extremely hard to find elsewhere. This is because pawnshops buy from their local community. So you never know what item they may have recently purchased.
Buying luxury items from a pawnshop is also better for the environment. With an urgent need to go green as soon as possible, shopping locally reduces carbon emissions. No fuel is needed for shipping and there’s no wasteful packaging, making pawn shops a more environmentally friendly option than shopping online.
Can I Sell Tiffany & Co. Jewelry to a Pawn Shop?
Some pawn shops will buy luxury items such as jewelry, watches, and handbags, and others may not. Pawn shops know what their customers want, so they will only buy inventory they know they will be able to sell.
But, when you find a pawn shop that does buy luxury jewelry, it’s probably a suitable place to take your Tiffany & Co. jewelry to sell. Pawn shops are always looking to add new inventory, so a pristine piece from one of the iconic collections at Tiffany’s is likely to be of interest to them.
