Get Jewelers to Buy Your Old Jewelry

What sounds more fun, having a root canal, paying unwanted taxes, or selling your old jewelry for some extra cash? Now, of course, there’s not much of a choice in those scenarios but we know you picked selling your old jewelry. But most of the time there’s a lot of stress and frustration that comes with it.  There are always questions like will I receive a fair offer for my old jewelry? Will I get a return on my investment? Did I pay too much for it to begin with? Or how can I get the most out of my old jeweler by selling it to a jeweler? These are common questions people ask before deciding to hand over their pieces.

Make sure it’s in good condition 

The condition of one’s jewelry is one of the biggest factors in determining the price point. Though damaged and broken jewelry may still be sold, its value level will decrease drastically. In some cases, jewelry repair may seem counter-intuitive and in some cases, it’s not. 
We have seen jewelry where the cost of restoration is minor and easily justified. And we’ve also seen pieces with damage so significant that the jewelry was simply unable to be resold. Of course, worn jewelry impacts the value of it. And it’s sometimes difficult to repair or bring life back, you just have to assess the situation on hand. 
If you want the best return on your investment, be sure to keep your old pieces in good condition. Take care of them as if they were your child. And if you need to take them in and get them fixed before taking them to a potential buyer, please do so. Your jewelry should be properly working, in good condition, and cleaned before selling it. 

Have all the necessary paperwork

Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork – we cannot stress this enough. If you’ve invested a piece of luxury jewelry and it came with paperwork make sure you sell it with the proper paperwork. It’s necessary for all jewelry pieces to be sold with the proper paperwork, but it’s extremely important when we’re talking about luxury jewelry. I mean you wouldn’t buy a Dolce & Gabbana bag unless you knew it was real, would you?

Come with an open mind

Once you are able to understand the true value of your old jewelry, you will be able to come up with a realistic price to sell them for. Having realistic expectations for your pieces is one of the fastest ways to sell them. Neil Beaty, owner of American Gem Registry recommends that you determine an astute price before jumping ship with your jewelry. He also recommends first having the diamond appraised, asking a lot of questions, and discussing possible selling strategies prior to choosing a price. It also wouldn’t hurt to visit two or three diamond appraisers to get a second opinion. Beaty says that “Discussing pricing strategies is about 80% of the benefit of an appraisal for resale customers,” Using an appraiser can help you understand the markets trends as well as the highest potential resale value of your jewelry. You also want to have an open mind and be willing to negotiate with what they buyer thinks is fair.
