Let's be real now, if you want to sell your jewelry with the price you bought it with then, selling your jewelry isn't a good choice. This is because preordained jewelry aren't as valuable as new one. For example, couples who want to buy a ring for their marriage won't go to an estate jewelry center to buy ones already used. This is because of some superstitious reason, they will think that it's an ominous sign to their marriage. If you want to get the most out of your used jewelry, you should start to take good care of it as soon as you bought it.
The condition of your jewelry is one major factor when estimating its values. A broken or damaged jewelry needs restoration fee and sometimes the estate dealer won't want to pay for a jewelry that needs to be fixed. The style of the jewelry is also a factor. If your jewelry is out-of-date the estate dealer might not want to purchase your jewelry, if they did it would be difficult for them to sell it out. Selling you jewelry to an estate is something that needs compromise from both. Not everything goes the way you wanted and compromise is a step that needs to be done for the better. Trust plays a big part when making a deal, who's gonna do the action first? are you going to give in your jewelry before the dealer gives you the money? Or are you going to wait for the money?
