How To Get More Money For Your Jewelry
We ALL have that one piece of jewelry that we simply can’t let go of. (Even if we urgently need cash!)
And there’s always some silly little reason to keep it around: “I’ll never know when I’ll need it.”, “If I sell it, I’ll regret it.”, “I’m afraid the jewelry buyer won’t give me a fair price for it.”
Do any of these lines sound familiar?
Then it’s time to cut loose.
Here are 3 ways to get (more) money for your used jewelry:
1. Be Aware Of What You Have
It’s important that you know as much as possible about your item before going to a jewelry buyer. Where did you get it from? What is it made of? How old is it?
The Pro Tip: Google your piece if you think you can find it, but don’t obsess over what the Internet says, as it cannot possibly tell you the true value of your piece. Always bring your piece in for an appraisal – the jewelry buyer will be able to accurately assess its worth.
2. Only Go To A Reputable Jewelry Buyer
You’d think this one goes without saying, but it doesn’t hurt to hear it one more time: don’t go about selling your jewelry online. In-person appraisals are essential for getting the right price. And when it comes to choosing a physical store…
The Pro Tip: Never go to shady locations or to pop-up events, even if you’re in a hurry – you’ll get ripped off! Instead, go to an established local store with a good reputation in the area. What you want is the opinion of an experienced, reputable jewelry buyer.
3. Clean It Up
Don’t just rush out that door with the jewelry in your pocket! Before visiting the jewelry store, take the time to prep the piece to the best of you abilities.
The Pro Tip: If you’re looking to sell gold or silver jewelry, clean the piece with warm water and a touch of gentle soap. Rub around the edges with your fingers or a soft toothbrush to remove grime. Pat dry with a clean cloth and voilà: your jewelry is now ready for sale!
