As time passed on, diamonds, for their value and glory became to be greatly sought after for engagements rings. Men started to gift women diamond Jewelry new. Party the reason behind choosing diamonds was that this was the hardest stone to find anywhere on earth. Therefore the rarity of the diamond rings symbolized passion and significance if it was placed on a diamond ring. This also was a symbolic bond between the bride and the groom. In the fourteenth and the fifteenth century that the diamond rings became famous for being used as wedding rings. Because of the cost, these diamond rings were gifted only by people who were rich and affluent.
Condition is a major determining factor of the price received for your jewelry. Damaged and broken jewelry many times justify the restoration costs but most of the time damaged jewelry is only valued at its intrinsic worth. Jewelry repair in many instances is counter-intuitive. I have seen jewelry that has been mangled in such a way that the cost of restoration is minor and easily justified. On the other hand what appeared to be an insignificant problem rendered the jewelry unrestorable. Jewelry repair is one area you don’t want to be a “do it yourselfer”. Let the professionals do it, or it could end up costing you a ton of money.
Each method of selling estate jewelry has it strengths and liabilities. Besides the price received for the jewelry, the time investment you have to make to sell the jewelry enters the equation. What are your time and energy worth? I have known people who have driven around town for two days just to make more. Don’t over look the ease of transaction. Not all people decide to buy and pay cash on the spot. Some individuals take two or three visits just to make up their mind to buy. There could also be a measure of trust in shipping the jewelry across the country or even a payment plan could be the only way a person could afford your jewelry. The balance of dollar paid versus method of payment can be very tricky.
The All Gold Name Charm Mothers Necklace is a personal favorite of mine. Delicate and beautiful, the artist creates each necklace when ordered especially for you. As she shapes the 14 karat gold charm and inscribes baby’s name and date of birth in her own elegant script, she imbues it with all the love and passion in her heart for creating beauty and happiness. Even the 14 karat gold chain is of an unusual and lacy pattern. To complete the mothers necklace, she fastens a Swarovski birth stone crystal to the charm and then attaches them both to the chain. This is a lovely birthday gift for new moms who will look forward to adding more charms and crystals.
The overview of the determining factors of estate jewelry is style, condition, and intrinsic worth. Remember you don’t get paid for the jewelry in relation to what you paid but the condition and demand when you sell. Clean jewelry shows the item at its best and helps in evaluating the design and gems.
New Moms love wearing their baby’s close to their hearts as a precious reminder of the miracle that has graced her life. That is why the heart of Gold mothers necklaces are so popular with new moms, like Jennifer Garner. The simplicity of this handcrafted Mommy Jewelry is the secret of its charm. The heart of Gold has two tag-shaped charms made from recycled silver. The large tag features a 22 karat inlaid heart of gold in the center and bordered by the words Bebe Love, expressing exactly how she feels. The second tag, smaller by half, features baby’s name and date of birth. You can add as many charms as you like and even a special message of love and tenderness.
Pawn shops and secondhand dealers are another type of walk-in and sell option. Most work on a cash evaluation of the jewelry. The cash value on most estate jewelry is a percentage of the intrinsic value. The key to understanding this buying environment is the percentage. Some dealers pay close to 90% of the intrinsic value, while others pay as low as 33%. The only way to find the best price is to physically take the jewelry around to a number of shops. Then sell to the shop that offers the best value.
