Earning Extra Money With Your Old Jewelry

There are many opportunities for you to make extra money, some of which may be hiding right under your nose. As an example, many people are now selling jewelry to make some extra money, although it is not going to be something that is available for the long-term (Source: Sell Diamonds to Diamond Buyers). If you sell diamonds, for example, you can expect to make a considerable amount of money if you sell them in the right location. You also need to consider the possibility of whether you are going to make more if you sell diamond ring components separately or if you are going to sell them as a single unit. In most cases, it is going to take some footwork on your part to determine which is going to be the best financial decision for you.

You can also use this information to learn about selling jewelry to learn how to buy an engagement ring. You are likely to learn that there are four C’s that need to be considered when making your purchase. They are cut, clarity, carat, and color. It is likely that you are not going to be able to afford a diamond that is flawless, so you may need to cut some corners somewhere to make it possible. The most important thing for you to consider is the cut and the clarity comes in as a close second. If the color is off to a certain extent, you will be able to save some money without sacrificing quality in most cases. The same is also true if the caret is very close to being a whole number but is slightly under, as that makes a difference in the price that you pay.

  1. I have some relatives who would appreciate this post, but for me, I don’t think I have the resources to go into a business like this. But thank you so much for this; will definitely share it :)

  2. Jessica Cassidy says

    that is nice that we can sell our old jewelry and use the money to buy new one :-)

  3. my mom’s old diamond earrings are still very beautiful up to the present because of its precise cut and clarity, she still owns a lot of “antigo” jewelries :) she was into jewelry selling during her younger days, the reason why she has a collection of beautiful jewelries :)

  4. Great post. I want to share this to my mom who loves to collect jewelry.

  5. Clarity, yes. I’ve been thinking of that every time I think of selling a ring (not worn for half a decade now due to civil status change), although I don’t have any idea yet how much would 12 dots (all diamond) on 24k gold sell.

  6. diamonds are forever and diamonds are girl bestfriends! But i cant’s afford to buy diamonds, except the diamonds in playing cards :D its a good business and investment, but maybe I need to earn a lot of money first :D

    It looks promising, but given that many are heirlooms, it can be quite difficult to get people to separate with their bling.

  8. Your tips are clear and helpful, unfortunately I have no jewelries to sell.

  9. A jewelry business is really profitable if you have the knowledge in jewelry. :) It’s too bad that I’m not too keen on jewelry, but will share this. Thanks! :)

    Hmmm I don’t think I have jewelries to sell. I’d rather represent for a friend who does jewelry business. Thanks for sharing! :)

  11. I learned the 4 C’s of selling jewelries today. Jewelries are indeed a nice source of funds and a good investment alternative as most of the time its price appreciates.

  12. Never appreciated jewelries until my bf gave me an engagement ring :) its actually a good investment <3

  13. My mom loves investing on jewelries,

  14. I remember selling one of my old earrings when I lost one of the dangling hearts with crystal it has :/ Now I miss it…how about old coins?

  15. My aunt does jewelry business and so far it’s doing good. I just don’t have jewelry to sell, I only have engagement and wedding rings…

  16. I never really got an interest with jewelries. But my parents buy jewelries because they see it as an investment.

  17. Diamonds are a girls best friend and they are forever, so just in case I will be given a chance to have my own I will definitely keep it rather than sell it. Also, I think I am going to share this post to my mom because she’s into investing a lot when it comes to jewelry.

  18. I don’t want to sell diamonds…I want to have them. The problem is I don’t have the money to buy the finest diamond.

  19. Hi.
    Thanks for your tips.
    Some old vintage jewelery also can get high price among their collectors.
    If it is vintage, just check them on the net first before you’re thinking baout selling them.

  20. Personnally, i chose to trade CFD online… it’s a bit more risky, but you can get some earning with that..
