Things to Be Aware of When Selling Jewelry

Things to Be Aware of When Selling Jewelry
Posted By: Kara Masterson on September 28, 2021

Selling jewelry can be a lucrative business move, whether or not you choose to make it on your own or simply sell what other companies offer. It’s a good way to make money quickly, with little risk of downsides. That being said, there are still some things you should consider before deciding to sell jewelry.

Avoid Acting on Impulse


This suggestion mainly applies to jewelry you wish to get rid of or have made yourself but might consider keeping. You should not be in a rush to sell ear piercing jewellery or any form of jewelry. You may be emotionally attached to the jewelry that you have. If the jewelry that you have means a lot to you, then you may want to wait before selling it.

Take Good Care of Your Jewelry


No one wants to buy jewelry that is dingy or broken. Thus, you should make sure to take care of the merchandise you wish to sell. Make sure that what you want to sell is clean, shiny, and eye-catching. Otherwise, no one is likely to even look at it.

You will also need to store your jewelry the right way, preferably in an airtight container. Avoid storing different types of jewelry in the same container. This avoids confusion later when you can’t find an item you might have sold or a buyer is interested in.

Get Your Jewelry Appraised


You have to set the right price for your jewelry.



You want to get as much as you can for your jewelry, but you should still set a fair price. You can take your jewelry for an appraisal before you set the price to get a better idea of what it’s truly worth.

Market Your Business


One of the keys to having any successful business is to market properly. There are several ways to do this. You can promote your jewelry on your social media accounts, across various platforms. You can also create a website to showcase your jewelry where people can purchase something directly. Additionally, you can promote your business at any arts and crafts shows in your area.

The main idea though is to get the word out and to generate interest in what you’re selling.

Shop Around


You shouldn't accept the first offer that you get, especially for higher-priced items. You can get the most for your jewelry by shopping around. You should also take the steps that are necessary to protect yourself. Take a picture of your jewelry and document it before you sell it. This will allow you to get reimbursed in case the jewelry is lost in transit or stolen.

Selling jewelry is a great way to make some money. However, it is important to avoid acting on impulse. It is also important for you to take good care of your jewelry. You need to market your business and get your jewelry appraised. Furthermore, you need to shop around before you sell your jewelry.
