How to Sell Your Jewelry


Trying to sell your Jewelry? You may have had the experience of trying to sell to places with signs, "Highest Prices Paid for Your Diamonds!", "Free Appraisals!". Was the offer price in a whole different category of prices than what you bought it for? Why do you think those appraisals are free? Because the appraisers are biased, and want to buy your stone for the least possible.

Just as you shouldn't rely on an appraisal which was done by the same place you are buying your Jewelry from, we wouldn't recommend getting a free Appraisal at the same place that you are selling your Jewelry to. It is best to go somewhere impartial to the sale.

Many people want to know where the best place is to sell their Jewelry. While there are many options, in order to maximize the selling price, we would suggest either bringing your Jewelry to an Auction House, or listing it in a Classifieds section or online Auction. If you need to sell immediately and want an offer right away, then it may be worthwhile to go to a Jewelry Store. But make sure you find out first, through a totally independent appraiser or gemologist what your Jewelry is worth in order to get the best offer.
