Why Sell Jewelry Locally vs. Online?

Since you have been thinking about selling your unwanted jewelry, you might have started looking online for options. Of course, there are ways that you can sell your jewelry online. You can list it on eBay, or you can work with an online jewelry buyer. These options might seem appealing, but they aren't always the great option that they seem to be.


With eBay and other similar sites, you have to take pictures of your jewelry and write up a listing, which obviously takes time. Plus, believe it or not, photographing jewelry is a lot harder than it seems! Then, you have to wait for someone to show interest in your jewelry and make you an offer. In some cases, you might get lucky, and someone might buy your jewelry quickly. This often isn't the case. There are just so many online jewelry stores and listings out there that you have to compete with. It might take a while before someone shows interest in your listing, which means it could be a while before you're able to make the sale and get paid. Then, you have to worry about paying eBay their cut, packaging and mailing the piece, and hoping that it arrives to the buyer without any issues. All of this can be a really big hassle, and it's not really necessary to sell your jewelry this way when you have better options.


As for online jewelry buyers, it's true that you won't have to wait to find someone who shows interest in your listing. However, there are a lot of scams online, so you have to be careful to make sure you're selling to one of the reputable online buyers. Additionally, you have to deal with the hassles of packaging and mailing the jewelry, hoping nothing goes wrong with the mail. Some jewelry buyers do try hard to pay their customers quickly, but you'll still have to wait for them to receive and value your jewelry and then pay you.


Why go through all of these hassles? When you think about the pros and cons of selling to a local store here in Virginia Beach, we think you'll see that selling locally just makes more sense. If you pick a trusted business like Hilltop Pawn & Jewelry, you don't have to worry about accidentally dealing with a scammer, which is unfortunately very common online. You don't have to worry about mailing-related hassles or problems, nor do you have to wait to get paid. It's all very fast, easy, and straightforward. All you have to do is take the short drive to Hilltop Pawn & Jewelry, let our staff know you want to sell your jewelry, and give them a few minutes to assess your jewelry and make you an offer. If you aren't interested in selling after you get the offer, you can walk away, having lost nothing but a few minutes of your time. Since we always offer the best value for jewelry, however, we think you'll like the offer you're given and will want to sell your jewelry on the spot. 


Basically, it can all be done and over with in just a few minutes, and you'll have cash in-hand for your jewelry in no time. Some people have decent experiences when selling jewelry online, but why risk it when there's a faster and easier way?


How Much Will Hilltop Pawn Pay for My Jewelry?

When you're wondering where you can get the best value for selling jewelry, the number one thing on your mind is probably money. We get it! Why sell your valuable jewelry for a low ball price when you can get paid more? If you're hoping to get the most for your jewelry, you've come to the right place.


Just how much can we pay you for your jewelry? Well, unfortunately, that isn't something we can answer online or over the phone. Jewelry obviously comes in a very wide range of prices. Costume jewelry doesn't cost very much, while certain diamond pieces can be worth millions! Chances are good that your piece falls somewhere in the middle, and in order for us to tell you the appraisal value of your piece, we'll need to see it in person. There are just many different variables that are looked at when it comes to jewelry.


Luckily, we will assess your jewelry and make you an offer for free, and there's never any obligation to sell to us if you don't like our offer. That's not usually a problem, since we offer more for jewelry than many other professional jewelers out there. We want to buy your jewelry, and we want you to walk away feeling good about the transaction. Because of that, we always make fair and competitive offers.


What do we look at when we're determining the value of your jewelry? Well, we actually look at a few different things. Is your piece rare, such as a limited edition or vintage piece? Is it a designer piece or something that is in high demand? If so, we may be able to offer you more. Naturally, we look at the condition of your jewelry...although even broken jewelry has value, you'll obviously get paid more in most cases for jewelry that's in decent or good condition. The precious metals that form your piece heavily impact value...18K gold or platinum jewelry is more valuable than sterling silver or 10K gold, for example.


The gemstones in your piece also have a big impact on value. With engagement rings, for example, the center diamond usually makes up the majority of the value of the piece. If you bring in jewelry with diamonds or precious stones, we will look at things like their size and quality when making an assessment on your jewelry.


We are more than happy to chat with you about how we value jewelry, and we are always fully transparent with our offers. After all, we want you to make an informed decision when you're selling your jewelry. Come see us today, and one of our helpful staff members will be more than happy to assess your piece, chat with you and answer any questions that you have, and most you top dollar in cash if you choose to make the sale!
