What We Do
Hock My Rock offers the following services: 1. We purchase fine jewelry including diamonds and precious metals. Our objective is to pay our Customers in a timely manner, giving you the ability to sell your jewelry from the comfort of your home; 2. We offer a Marketplace on the Shop page for Sellers to list their fine jewelry for sale to third-party Buyers. Our objective is for Sellers to have a protected and anonymous ability to list their item for sale and for Buyers to have the ability to purchase pre-owned jewelry from third-party Sellers with confidence as we authenticate every purchase before it is shipped to the Buyer and before payment is released to the Seller.

Once we receive your item, we will use our reasonable efforts to give an offer to you within two (2) business days. If you accept that offer, that will represent your legally binding commitment to sell the item. Payment in the form of check or PayPal will be made to you within one (1) business day.

Selling on the Marketplace: Fill out the Marketplace Form on the Marketplace Form page by clicking “Sell” on the top navigation bar, then “Sell on the Marketplace.” Your item will post to the Marketplace on the Shop page within one (1) business day. Your item will remain on the Marketplace until it sells or until your notify us that you would like your listing removed. If for any reason your item is no longer for sale, you must notify us immediately in writing so we can remove your item from the Marketplace. If your item sells, you will be notified via email. You will have five (5) business days to ship your item to Hock My Rock. You must notify us when you ship your item and send tracking information to us. Once we receive your item we will open it under video surveillance and a gemologist will endeavor to authenticate it within two (2) business days to make sure it is as you described on the Marketplace Form. Once authenticated, we will issue payment to you in the form of a check within one (1) business day and ship the item to the Buyer. The check amount will be the total sales price of your item minus a 15% commission. During the authentication process, if we find that your item is not as you described on your Marketplace Form, we will notify both you and the Buyer. The Buyer can choose to continue with the sale as is, request a price adjustment or cancel the sale. In the case that the Buyer chooses to cancel the sale or you and the Buyer cannot agree on an adjusted price, Hock My Rock will issue an invoice to you for the cost of return shipping. Once paid, your item will be returned to you.
Buying on the Marketplace: If you purchase an item listed for sale on the Marketplace on the Shop page, the Seller will be notified.

Once authenticated, we will issue payment to the Seller and ship the item to you within one (1) business day. Please note, if you purchased any additional services it may take longer to ship the item to you.

Every Customer must be eighteen (18) years of age or older in order to sell an item to Hock My Rock or on its Marketplace. Every Customer must be the actual legal owner of any and all property sold or attempted to be sold to Hock My Rock or on its Marketplace, and that property must be owned free and clear of any liens, claims, security agreements or other encumbrances or defects in title. Every Customer must be acting on his or her own behalf and not as the agent or representative of another person. By selling or attempting to sell any item to Hock My Rock or on its Marketplace, you agree to hold Hock My Rock or any third-party Buyer harmless from any claims brought by a third party claiming ownership of any items Hock My Rock purchases from you or any items a third-party Buyer purchases from you on the Marketplace.
Hock My Rock may, but shall not be required to, request documentation or other proof of compliance with the requirements listed above. We reserve the right to reject any Customer or potential Customer.
You will not give Hock My Rock any false or misleading information. You will not send items to us that do not contain diamonds and/or precious metals. You will not send hazardous materials to us. You will not use Hock My Rock for any unlawful purpose, including money laundering. You will not impersonate any person or entity, or give false information to misrepresent your association with another person or entity.
Filling out the Estimate Form and Marketplace Form
Before you send your item to Hock My Rock for an official offer to sell, you can request an Estimate of what we might pay for your item. To receive this Estimate, you must accurately fill out the Estimate Form. To list an item for sale on the Marketplace (on the Shop page) you must accurately fill out the Marketplace Form, in which we will also send an Estimate to you of what we might pay for your item should you decide to sell directly to Hock My Rock.
For either form, if you have more than one item, you must fill out one Estimate Form or Marketplace Form for each item, unless selling more than one item as a set. If you do not know the answer to a question or correct information to complete the field you must select or enter “unknown.” Do not guess. If you do not have paperwork stating specific information about a diamond or item, then select or enter “unknown.” After submitting an Estimate Form we will attempt to contact you via email within one (1) business day with an estimated value.
If the Estimate Form or Marketplace Form contains any inaccurate, false or misleading information, and you then deliver an item to us that is inconsistent, in any significant respect, from the information on the Estimate Form or Marketplace Form, you will be required to reimburse the Company for the cost of shipping and insurance to us, and the cost of return shipping and insurance back to you. You will not receive your item back until you have paid the Company for these costs.
On both forms we ask that you upload photos, but only on the Marketplace Form is it mandatory that you upload clear photos of your item. If you fail to upload clear photos of your item we may choose not to list your item on the Marketplace. Also note, Hock My Rock reserves the right to crop or brighten any photo that you submit to appear on the Marketplace for the purpose of cropping out any background that does not include the item and brightening the photo if it appears dark. We may also black out or blur any personal information that appears on paperwork in a photo, but we will not be held accountable to do so. In no way we will edit or manipulate a photo outside of these stated guidelines.
Any Estimate that you receive from us is not binding in any way, and Hock My Rock will not be held accountable to pay any amount stated to you via the Estimate Email. Until we have physical possession of your item we are not able to give you a binding offer.
What We Authenticate
When we receive an item that was sold on the Marketplace, a gemologist will compare the details of the Seller's listing to the item in hand. The gemologist will authenticate the following when applicable: diamond type (natural or synthetic); determine if the diamond is clarity enhanced; center or main diamond shape, carat weight, color and clarity; metal type; size of ring; damage if any. Please note, diamonds and other fine stones are graded as mounting permits.
Authenticating exact details - If any of the following authentication properties are not exact or do not fall within the parameters listed by the Seller we will notify you: diamond type (natural or synthetic); clarity enhancement; center or main diamond shape, color and clarity; metal type.
Authenticating approximate details - If any of the following authentication properties are outside of the following stated parameters we will notify you: center or main diamond carat weight must be within .05 carats (graded as mounting permits); size of ring must be within 1/4 of the stated size.
Unknown information - If you purchase an item that is listed with unknown information, you are agreeing to purchase the item as is. For example, if the item is listed to have a center diamond that is unknown in color and clarity, during the authentication process we will not notify you to let you know the color and clarity of the diamond. The authentication process compares the item in hand to what is listed on the Marketplace. If you would like to have an appraisal detailing the item purchased with a value attached to it for insurance purposes, you may purchase one under the Boxes and Services section of our Shop page.
Normal wear and tear - All items sold on the Marketplace are pre-owned, unless otherwise noted, and there is a normal amount of wear and tear to be expected with pre-owned items. Signs of normal wear and tear include: small superficial scratches in the metal or stones, cracks in the stones that may or may not be visible to the naked eye, spots on the metal that is worn off if gold or platinum plated. If there are any signs of normal wear and tear that are not noted by the Seller, during authentication we will not notify you as this is to be expected.
Damage - Damage to the item falls outside of the normal wear and tear parameters. If there is any damage to the item that is not noted in the listing, we will notify you during authentication. Please note, if the damage to the item is listed, we will not notify you. The following are considered examples of damage: center or main stone has deep scratches or cracks; metal has any deep scratches or is bent; setting is damaged and it appears that a stone is loose enough to fall out.

We will contact you and get your consent to remove a diamond or other precious stone before doing so. It may also be necessary to place certain acids on metals, or to scratch or scrape items in order to remove the top layer of material so that the testing apparatus can accurately determine the true grade or karat of the item in question.
