Which Types of Jewelry Are Best to Sell at a Pawn Shop?
From watches and necklaces to earrings and diamond rings, there are all sorts of jewelry which you can sell at a pawn shop. The best types of jewelry to sell depend on several different factors, such as:
- The type of metal used to make the piece of jewelry. Platinum and gold are worth a lot more per ounce compared to silver or “gold plated” jewelry.
- The overall condition of the piece. For instance, with watches, they should be working, not have a broken face, and be a popular brand name.
- The rating of the “4 Cs” for diamonds. The carat, cut, clarity, and color will all determine the value of diamonds. Other precious gemstones like rubies and tanzanite use a similar rating scale to determine value.
- The current demand for the jewelry. If diamond necklaces are trendy and selling quickly, then you could get more for your diamond necklace.
