If You Don’t Wear It, Sell It!

Americans love their jewelry. You can tell because the average American consumer spent $136.33 on jewelry in 2021, second only to China. And that’s not even considering that 42% of American inherited family heirlooms older than 50 years. As new and more fashionable designer jewelry becomes available, you may no longer have much use for your older, more expensive pieces. In this case, your best option is to sell it!

What’s the point of holding on to unused items? If you have a jumble of unused jewelry, gold, or silver pieces collecting dust in a box, selling them seems like the most practical option. You could use that money toward something that you actually use. Here is a look at why you need to sell unused items, tips to help you sell, and where you can sell jewelry.

Why sell it? All the gold, silver, or jewelry you don’t use can become profitable

Question is, why not? If you don’t wear it, sell it! That seems sound advice, as you won’t miss the pieces anyway. Moreover, you might use the proceeds to do something meaningful, such as supplementing your income or fund a special purchase.

Some options for selling jewelry include pawn shops, traditional jewelry stores, the virtual marketplace, and of course Doylestown Gold Exchange. You might make several hundred dollars or more based on the item’s make, model, and market value.

Statista reports that around 35% to 45% of Americans have valuable jewelry, merely sitting around doing nothing. What is the use in keeping that broken necklace, old bracelet, or other jewelry you never wear?

The value of these expensive items may diminish when you ignore them and leave them to gather dust. Get some money for your jewelry instead of letting it sit around unused. You can utilize the cash from selling your items to pay off debt, vacation, or buy new jewelry that catches your eye.

Tips for selling your unwanted items

1. Know the value

Don’t rush to sell until you have a clear idea of the value and authenticity of your item to avoid getting low offers. You can hire an independent third-party appraiser to help you determine the wholesale value of your item if you believe it to be valuable.

2. Set realistic values

It would help if you remembered that the buyer would also have to turn a profit after selling the jewelry or any other unwanted item. Demanding the full price for a piece is off-putting to potential  buyers, so you won’t find many takers, if any.

3. Where to sell

If you want a great bargain on jewelry or any other valuable item, an excellent place to start would be your neighborhood pawn shops. Since they have dealt with similar situations before, jewelers in your area can accurately assess your jewelry instantly and offer to buy it.

Doylestown Gold Exchange: A New Kind of Jewelry Store

Fall Jewelry: Colors and styles you will want to wear

The ready-to-wear trend cycle is a tricky beast, but jewelry is entirely different. Beauty accessories are more personal, intimate, and less likely to oscillate from one fashion trend to the next. So, it’s a delicate balance for jewelry brands to parse out future accessorization without losing sight of the current trends. When it comes to seasonal jewelry trends, many designers operate from within to choose what’s next.

We are likely to see chunkier jewelry formats evolving beyond the chain-link necklace this fall season. For example, the statement earring à la Schiaparelli is quickly gaining popularity, signaling a future filled with flora and fauna. After all, who doesn’t adore the joy animals and flowers bring? Overall, here are the top jewelry trends to keep tabs on this fall: Continue reading Fall Jewelry: Colors and styles you will want to wear

Gold Coins: Should You Be Collecting or Investing?

Investing in gold coins and collecting coins are both valuable ventures. However, collectors tend to purchase valuable coins as a hobby due to their rarity, while investors invest in gold coins as a hedge against a dwindling economy. Either way, both collectors and investors have one thing in common: a strong appreciation for gold coins.

If anyone could pick a day for the explosive beginning of coin collecting in America, then May 25, 1857, would be a likely candidate. According to David Thomason Alexander, the author of “10 Great Moments That Shaped American Coin Collecting,” copper was used in the Flying Eagle cent as the base material for the penny. It was unpopular, but news that the large cent would soon be no more caused people to want to find and save the coin. Continue reading Gold Coins: Should You Be Collecting or Investing?
