Trade your unwanted jewelry for something new that excites you. When you meet with our buyer, one of the options he will give you is a trade in value to exchange your items for something you will actually be excited about wearing. How awesome is that? Exchanging your items is a great way to turn your unwanted, broken or damaged jewelry into something you can enjoy. At CJEX we offer a higher percentage on exchange value so that you can get the most on a trade for something new. We are only talking jewelry, not husbands so let’s just settle down.

There is a hidden tax saving bonus as well: you will only pay tax on any difference owing, not on your trade in amount. For example if you are buying a piece that is $1000 & your trade is $1000, there would be no tax due. But if the piece you are buying is $1100 & your trade in is $1000, you would pay tax on the $100 difference.

Your trade in can be used at CJEX (Canadian Jewelry Exchange) which is our exclusive shop for preloved, estate & vintage jewelry. Your trade in may also be used at our sister store, Perrara Fine Jewelry, at the same location. Perrara is our home for new jewelry and brands like Tacori, SimonG, Noam Carver, Birks, Carlex, Parade Design & so much more. Think of the fun you can have. Something old for something new.


What happens to the items I trade in?
That all depends on the condition, style & salability. If you have a broken chain, missing an earring, rings that have small diamonds missing, chances are we will salvage these items, in other words, melt them down. If the piece is in great condition and a style that we feel may sell, we will restore it and try to resell it as a preloved piece.

Can I use my trade in toward repairs?
Omigosh, of course! We’d be happy to accept your trade in as payment on repairs but please note at this time we are only able to service jewelry that was originally purchased at CJEX. There are many great jewelers around the Okanagan – if you would like a referral, please give us a call or contact us here.
