There are times when you have to, or want to, sell your jewelry. The reasons for selling your jewelry can vary from wanting to buy something new, hardship or the dissolution of a relationship, and these situations can cause you to ask for varying amounts of money for your Tiffany jewelry. Use the steps below to try to sell your Tiffany jewelry.
Appraise the value of your Tiffany jewelry. This can be a time-consuming and expensive process through an appraiser. If you cannot afford to have your jewelry professionally appraised then try to do the research yourself. You may be able to get an idea of the worth of your piece of jewelry by searching for the price others are selling the piece for, or a similar piece for, online.
Clean your Tiffany jewelry. Having your jewelry professionally cleaned may not make a difference to an appraiser but it will to the average consumer who is viewing what you have to sell. A buyer will most likely choose the piece that sparkles more than another even if the pieces of jewelry are identical.
Check your local jewelry store to see if they would be willing to buy your used jewelry. Often a jeweler will offer you a price based on what they believe they can then turn around and sell the item for themselves in their store. This is somewhat like trading in a car instead of selling it outright; you will receive less money by selling your Tiffany jewelry in this way.
Sell your jewelry online if the other options are either not open to you or if they do not give you the price you feel you need to get for your jewelry. There are many different sites available from auction sites to free classifieds sites. Each of these sites will offer you different options that will affect the amount of money you will be able to sell your item for. A free classified site will cost you nothing to advertise on while an auction site will most likely charge you a fee. The auction site may have more visitors, though, which means it is more likely you will sell your jewelry for the price you want.
If you need quick money for an emergency, you can sell your items to a pawn shop or use it as collateral for a loan at a pawn shop. The problem with this is that you will get pennies on the dollar for your jewelry.
