We all have that one piece of jewelry collecting dust in our jewelry box. Whether it’s the diamond earrings from an ex, the silver necklace you haven’t touched in years or the gold watch you used to wear all the time, you may be ready to let it go. Selling is an option for those looking to get some cash for those pieces. But sometimes you need a little advice on how and where to get started.
Here are our tips for selling your jewelry in West Palm Beach.
Know What You Have
Do you know how much your jewelry is worth? There are many factors that influence the resale value of your piece including the quality of the gems and metals, the amount of wear and tear and the potential needed repairs.
Take your piece to be appraised by a certified appraiser. This professional will meticulously examine your piece in order to determine its retail replacement value. Knowing the current fair market price of your piece is a must if you want to avoid being taken advantage of.

Do Your Research
Prior to approaching an establishment for sale, make sure to extensively research the places you are considering selling to. What kind of reviews do they have from previous customers? Are they accredited with a reputable organization like the Better Business Bureau? Do they have an onsite expert who has the training and expertise to accurately assess what you have?
The decision to sell something so valuable is not one you should rush or take lightly.
Now you’re ready to sell and you’re looking at your options. You could consider the pawnshops or the online auction sites such as eBay or Craigslist but the truth is, you should be able to sell your old jewelry to experts you can trust. You want to work with highly trained and seasoned jewelry buyers who can not only appraise your gold, silver and diamond jewelry, but will also give you a fair market price for your old treasure.
