Tips for Determining Value
If you have any type of jewelry that you are thinking about selling, the first thing you should do is gather up information about it and see if you can identify how much it may be worth. If this is not something you have done before, it can be difficult to get started. While you may not be able to get an exact number on your own, you can at least get a ball park figure so you know whether or not you are being ripped off by the person you are trying to sell it to.
Read through the following simple tips that you can follow in order to help get a good idea of the price range that you should be looking for. With that in mind, you can decide whether or not you want to sell jewelry in Union County. It can also help if you are going to try to negotiate a price with a jewelry buyer because you will have a better idea of the true value of your items.
Simple Tips for Determining Value
These are simple explanations of different things you can do to help figure out the value of your jewelry. If you have any questions about any of them, please feel free to call our shop or stop in to talk with one of our jewelry experts. We will be happy to help you in any way we can.
• Know the Materials – The most important thing you can do is figure out what your jewelry is made of. If you have a ring for example, you need to know if it is made of true gold, and if so, how pure the gold is. Also, know the size and cut of any diamonds or gemstones in the piece.
• Price of Materials – You can look up how much these materials are worth based on their weight quite easily. Gold today, for example, is very valuable so if you have a piece made with a lot of gold, it is likely going to be worth quite a bit.
• Historical Value – While not common, some items may have some significant historical value. If it is an antique, or it was owned by someone famous (and you can prove it) the price is likely to go up.
• Demand – If you have an item that is in high demand, it can help it to sell faster and for more money. Check what the current fashion trends are for the type of jewelry you are selling and see if what you have is hot or not.
While these tips can help you to get a better idea of what your jewelry may be worth, the best thing you can do is bring it into a shop that is known for treating their customers fairly. You can stop in our shop and have one of our jewelry experts give you a full, free appraisal. This appraisal is complimentary and does not require you to sell to us. Once it is done, we’ll let you know how much we can buy it from you for so you can make an informed decision about whether or not you want to sell jewelry in Union County.
