Choosing the Right Jewelry buyer

There are quite a few different types of buyers out there, so understanding a little about the pros and cons of each one will help you to make the right decision.

Types of Jewelry Buyers
The following are basically the most common categories of Monmouth County jewelry buyers. The information about them is mostly from a high level perspective, and each individual will be unique. Whenever selling jewelry, however, you need to do all you can to make as much money as possible and stay safe throughout the process.
• Online Distance Buyers – Many buyers spend most of their day on sites like eBay finding jewelry they can buy. In most cases, they are simply bidding as low as possible because they know that these auction sites typically result in great deals for the buyers, at the expense of the sellers.
• Local Online Buyers – There are also local sites, such as Craigslist, that allows local buyers to find jewelry that they can purchase. While this can work out well in some cases, there have also been a lot of examples of people meeting to complete a sale only to get robbed, or worse. If you go this route, make sure you take precautions to stay as safe as possible.
• Pawn Shops – Pawn shops have a very long history as safe jewelry buyers. The problem is, some pawn shops are more interested in squeezing every dime out of every customer than actually providing a good service. If you feel like you’re being pressured or manipulated, you are in the wrong shop.
• Friends & Family – Another common place to sell jewelry is to friends and family. Unfortunately, they will be looking for an extremely good deal since they know you personally. This is often the worst place to sell jewelry, unless you are only interested in helping the other party and you don’t mind losing a significant amount of money.
