  • Selling Jewelry is Like Selling a Car

    Selling Jewelry is like selling your car

    Selling jewelry is like selling your car.

    In today’s disposable world, there are not many things you own that are actually worth re-selling. Your automobile is one of those items, of course. However, another is your fine jewelry and watches. If you are like many people, you have pieces tucked away in a jewelry box or safe deposit box that you never wear. Wouldn’t it be better to turn those into cash? If you decide to do that, make sure you take care of the process and treat the sale like you would an automotive deal—this protects you and helps assure you get a good price for your items. Consider these five points:

    Maintenance Counts

    You will get the best price for your jewelry if you keep it properly maintained. Therefore, it may be worth investing in a little extra care—even if you plan to sell soon.

    Sell to a Reputable Dealer

    It is important that you know whom you are selling your car to so that you can trust the price you are quoted. The same goes for jewelry. Do not just pick a name out of the phonebook. Do some research and choose a company that can provide you a measure of confidence.

    It is Possible to Trade-In

    Just like you can trade in your car for a newer model, you may be able to trade unworn jewelry for a treasured piece. Talk to your jeweler and find out if this is an option. You could find the Rolex watch you have always wanted by trading in an old ring to a diamond buyer.

    Not Every Deal is the Same

    While not every car is a Mercedes, not every piece ring or necklace will have the same value to a jewelry buyer. Have your pieces appraised and understand that there will be a difference in value from one item to another.

    Hold on to Your Paperwork

    While you will likely be unable to sell your car if you don’t have the title to go with it, you may run into trouble selling individual jewelry pieces if you don’t have paperwork to go with it too. Keep your certificate of authenticity, if you have one as well as any boxes or pouches. It can help boost the value in the future.

    Just like you would not sell your beloved old car to just anyone, make sure you take your vintage jewelry, estate jewelry or any favorite pieces to a jewelry store you can trust. Since 1855, Roy Herzl Fine Diamonds & Estate Jewelry and been the diamond buyer NY residents turn to when they want to sell their jewelry.
