Although you will get more money for your jewelry, selling individually may not be your best choice if you need money now. By taking a drive into town, you’ll more than likely see a place or two you can unload your jewelry for cash. Whether you sell this at a yard sale or a flea market, these are alternative locations for quick transactions. Without a doubt, choosing these alternate locations will bring you a lot more money than you would receive from a pawnbroker or a jeweler in town. It all depends on how quickly you want the money and how badly you need it.
If you have attractive pieces of jewelry that are in good condition, you may be able to get the best price for them online. eBay is certainly one of the best online sites to put your jewelry on, however there are additional options available to you. The great thing with online auctions is the ability to set a minimum price for your items, which means you needn’t worry about somebody bidding pennies and winning your item. If you post your jewelry online, make sure you have good photos, as this is essential if you want bids. Only dealing with folks who have an honorable feedback score is the best way to go when using online auctions.
Keep in mind that selling your jewelry to a stranger you have never met, or even a business that you are not familiar with, can possibly end up as a bad transaction. There are, unfortunately, scam artists and outright criminals who operate on sites such as Craigslist who will arrange to meet you with the intention of robbing you. Valuable items like automobiles are often the targets of these criminals, which may include the jewelry you are selling if it is very valuable. Stay away from evening transactions that put you in a dark location that you are unfamiliar with devoid of people. Always try to find out you’re dealing with before you meet them. Being sensible, and careful, are all things you need to be when you are dealing with people you do not know that you find online. To get the absolute best price for your used jewelry you may have to wait a bit. It’s best to wait, rather than hurry, to get the best price. You should try to ask a number of places how much they’ll offer you for your jewelry. If waiting isn’t an issue for you, you should attempt to sell your jewelry as individual lots, as you may get a much better price. Remember, you don’t have to accept an offer if you feel it’s not worth it.
