1. Find The Best Place To Sell Jewelry Near Me:
One of the best ways to sell jewelry is to locate places near you that buy jewelry. You can do this by doing a simple Google search and researching local jewelry buyers. Simply pull out your cell phone and go to Google and type in “jewelry buyers near me”. Google will then display several companies, their contact details, and reviews.
Take your time an gather a list of several different places with good reviews. You can call these companies and get an estimate over the phone, however, anyone that actually purchases your jewelry will need to see it in person. That is why it is best to visit these places physically and to get firm estimates.
2. Sell Jewelry Online:
Another great way to sell jewelry is to list it on websites or apps that have an audience of potential buyers. Certain websites are excellent places that allow you to list your jewelry for sale. Below, listed are just a few of the places that allow you to sell jewelry online. If you search the internet you are sure to find additional outlets.
- Facebook Marketplace
This is a great way to get tons of free exposure to people that might be interested. However, there are tons of scammers online so you need to always use your best judgment. Also, meeting strangers can always be tricky, so be extremely careful.
Should You Get a Jewelry Appraisal Before Selling?
This is a question that we often get asked at The Diamond Exchange. When a jewelry appraiser does the appraisal they will often put a “Retail Replacement Value” number on the appraisal. However, this number is usually crazy high. For example, we might sell an engagement ring for $5,000 then it will have an appraisal done on it and value it at $10,500. So, the appraised value is usually nowhere near the actual resale value. So, No, you do not need to get an appraisal done on it if you are going to sell it to a jewelry buyer. Diamond Exchange Houston and other jewelry buyers alike will make their own independent appraisal before they lay out any cash for jewelry.
If you want to sell your jewelry to a private party or to someone online then having an appraisal could be helpful. The appraisal will tell you important information about the jewelry item such as what type of metal, diamond carat size, and the other 4 C’s. Make sure to get an appraisal done by a certified appraiser who is a Gemological Institute of America (GIA) graduate gemologist.
3. Consider Jewelry Consignment
If you want to get the most money when selling your jewelry then jewelry consignment is a fantastic option. At Diamond Exchange Houston we offer a jewelry consignment program.
