2 Ways To Sell Estate Jewelry

If you have estate jewelry that you want to sell, you want to make sure that you get the best price for your jewelry. To do that, you are going to have to look into the various ways that you can sell that jewelry. You might try one of them, or you might go with a combination of them, depending on the kind of jewelry you are selling and what its value is. 


Before you do anything, you should contact an appraiser. The appraiser will look at the jewelry, the state that it's in, and what it is made of. The reason you want to get the pieces appraised is that you want to know what the value is. Knowing that number will give you a good starting place when it comes to selling your jewelry. 

Local Jeweler

One place that you can start when you are selling your jewelry is a local jeweler. This would be especially true if you have a jeweler who specializes in older jewelry. If you have antique estate jewelry or heirlooms, this might be the best way for you to try. You can take your jewelry to the jeweler, along with the appraisal, and see what they can offer you. They might not offer you as much as the appraisal because the jeweler has to make a profit, but the appraisal can help the jeweler because it will let them know that the jewelry is worth what you say it is. 

Auction Houses

Another way that you can sell off your jewelry is to contact an auction house. The auction house could be one that is local to you, which might run frequent auctions on all kinds of items. You can also work with an auction company that works specifically with estate sales. If you are selling off a whole estate, this can be a good way to do it, since the auction house will tell you what you need, and can help with all the set up and advertising it. If you have really high end pieces, you might want to work with a more prestigious auction house that has a wider audience. 

If you have estate jewelry that you want to sell, there are a lot of ways that you can do it. You might just use one type, or you might use a combination, depending on what kind of jewelry you have to sell and what its value is. Find a reputable estate jewelry buying shop near you. 

About Me

The Beauty of Turquoise

Since childhood, I’ve loved jewelry. When I was a kid, I enjoyed trying on the beautiful rings, necklaces, bracelets, and brooches in my grandmother’s jewelry box. Because of my admiration for her cherished pieces, my grandmother started buying me jewelry when I was 5 years old. Now that I’m an adult, I’m always looking for interesting items to add to my extensive jewelry collection. One of my favorite gemstones is turquoise. The earthy green tones of this gemstone are breathtakingly beautiful to me. Amazingly, turquoise is mined in my favorite mountain town. On this blog, I hope you will develop an appreciation for turquoise jewelry. Enjoy!
