Maybe you've outgrown the style, or you've outgrown the relationship, or you just want something new. Whatever the reason, there may come a time when you want to sell your jewelry. However, whilst it may be tempting to simply put your items on eBay and hope for the best, this is seldom the best approach, particularly if you’re looking for a good return on your initial investment.

If you have decided to sell your unwanted jewelry and want to know the best way to do it, here’s a helpful guide.

How to Safely Sell Your Unwanted Jewelry for the Best Price

1)    Find a reputable reseller. If possible, avoid selling valuable jewelry on sites such as eBay. They’re competitive, occasionally unreliable, and it’s highly unlikely that you’ll make the money that your item is worth. Instead, do some investigation in your local area. Identify reputable jewelry stores that are happy to value and buy your jewelry.

2)    Get a valuation. If you want to get a good price for your item, it’s a good idea to know how much it’s worth. However, be aware that prices fluctuate, and your jewelry may not be worth the same as when you purchased it. A good dealer will weigh your jewelry, then offer you a price then and there for your consideration.

3)    Explore your options. Don’t simply settle for the first jewelry buyer you find. Don’t let price be the one and only factor influencing your decision either. It’s better to sell to a reputable dealer than one with a shady reputation!

4)    Be realistic. It’s important to be realistic when selling your jewelry. You may have paid thousands for it when you bought it originally, but if it has become damaged or scratched, this will affect its value.

5)    Know how you’ll be paid. Be aware that different jewelry buyers may pay in different ways. Some may offer cash on the spot, others may offer a bank transfer or check. If you’ve got any queries or concerns about payment, make sure you address them at the time, rather than leaving it until it’s too late.
