One of the great things about handmade jewelry is that you can own one of a kind pieces. These pieces can be designed yourself and made by an expert. Or, more often, they can be uniquely designed by the expert jewelry maker.
First take a trip to your local mall. Look, but don’t buy your diamond ring there. In a couple of hours you will become familiar with “The 4 C’s”, and you want to judge with your own eyes the difference between the lowest grade diamond, and a high grade expensive diamond. The 結婚對戒 salesperson will most likely pressure you to buy their most expensive diamond. Don’t be shy: ask to see their least expensive diamond as well. Then move on to the next Jewelry store.
Pawn shops and secondhand dealers are another type of walk-in and sell option. Most work on a cash evaluation of the jewelry. The cash value on most estate jewelry is a percentage of the intrinsic value. The key to understanding this buying environment is the percentage. Some dealers pay close to 90% of the intrinsic value, while others pay as low as 33%. The only way to find the best price is to physically take the jewelry around to a number of shops. Then sell to the shop that offers the best value.
When you buy your diamond get the assistant to write on the receipt the exact Carat, color, clarity grades and the diamond dimensions on the receipt. Check these against the diamond certificate when you pick the ring up.
A large culet will allow one to see through the diamond even more, making the diamond look as if it has some discoloration or a large colored inclusion right down the center of the diamond.
Many women will spend considerable money on jewelry as they believe it will show just how wealthy they are. However it is not always simple to define if the person’s jewelry is really that expensive. Over the past few years more and more ‘imitation’ jewelry pieces have flooded the market.
As you can see, buying or selling jewelry isn’t nearly as difficult as it may appear. It just requires doing research, some legwork, asking questions, getting certificates and other related jewelry material. The work will pay off once you see how it can help you with your jewelry buying and selling goals.
