The process of selling your jewelry and luxury goods can be a stressful experience. There’s quite a bit of information to absorb and you never quite know if you’re getting the best deal for your valuables. However, at Watch and Wares we want to ensure you feel confident in any sale process. If you’re attempting to sell jewelry or any luxury item, here are the questions that you need to be asking.
Questions to Ask When Selling Jewelry
What is the current demand for my estate jewelry?
Having an educated estimate of what your estate jewelry is worth is key to ensuring that you receive a fair offer for your items. Do the prior research and then ask your buyer this question when the time comes.
What measurement are you using to weigh your gold?
The general consensus method of measuring gold is in grams. You might also see some gold and jewelry buyers use troy ounces so it’s best to keep in mind conversion rates between the two measurement systems. If your buyer is using another method, then you could find yourself being paid less than what you deserve.
What’s the value of my gold jewelry?
As with other types of jewelry, you want to have an idea of how much your gold jewelry is worth prior to meeting with a buyer. If possible, measure your gold jewelry and get an accurate measurement to help determine its value before receiving a valuation.
Questions to Ask When Selling Luxury Items
Can you tell me about the quality of my handbag’s leather?
Expensive designer handbags will have high-quality leather while a knockoff will have one of lesser quality. By discovering your handbag’s leather quality, you will have a better grasp of its value.
Can you tell me about my handbag’s stitching?
A handbag’s stitching is indicative of its quality. Higher-end designer handbags are carefully hand-stitched with delicate touch and care. Ask your buyer about your handbag’s stitching to help with your valuation.
If I have the original box and papers of my watch, will I get a bigger price?
The answer to this question should usually be yes. Having the original box and papers for your watch will raise its value and help you earn more on your transaction. Make sure to mention this to your buyer to ensure that it’s accounted for in their valuation.
