How To Sell High-End Jewelry OnlineJune 21, 2017 - Jewelry Articles
Whatever your reason for selling, the most important thing is to find a trustworthy seller that will pay you a fair amount. There are 2 steps to follow in order sell your luxury jewelry:
FIND OUT THE DETAILS ON YOUR PIECE
Any buyer will want to know the details of the item that you are looking to sell. Below we have outlined the information you need:
|INFORMATION YOU WILL NEED|
|DIAMONDS||The carat weight, color grade and clarity grade.|
|METAL||Is it gold, platinum or silver? If it is gold, what is the karat weight?|
|BRAND||Is it Tiffany, Cartier, Graff, Harry Winston etc.?|
|TIME PERIOD||Is this a modern, vintage or antique piece?|
You may have the original paperwork on your piece that details the brand and the quality of any precious metals or stones. In which case you are in a good position to start selling.
If you do not, then it is important to get an educated opinion. A local jeweler can often give you a good idea of the characteristics of your jewelry at no cost. You do not need to ask for a written appraisal (there are costs associated with this).
