Hello and welcome back to the H. Moradi blog! In our last blog post, we began talking about what to do when you’re ready to sell your estate jewelry. It can be overwhelming when you are responsible to not only divide up your passed-away loved one’s jewelry, but to make sure that everyone is happy with what they got. Instead of dividing up grandma’s or grandpa’s jewelry, why not sell it ? Money is always easier to divide than a diamond or a watch.

What Do I Need to Do to Sell Estate Jewelry? – Part 2

Once you’ve gotten your jewelry cleaned and gathered up all the necessary paperwork and packaging, it’s time to sell your jewelry for cash!  

Get It Appraised

When you’re ready to sell, it’s time to get your pieces appraised. Always get your items appraised by a graduate gemologist, a horologist (watchmaker), jewelry wholesaler, jewelry retailer, or jewelry buyer.  Anyone can present themselves as a professional who can provide advice. Before you take your jewelry to anyone, make sure they have the credentials to be looking at your jewelry. Avoid pawn shops and those who require you to mail your jewelry to them for appraisal.

Get a Second Opinion

Even when you take your jewelry to a professional, it is always best to get a second opinion. A second opinion will make sure that you are getting what you deserve for your jewelry. Even if you bring it to the jewelers, it is best to get a second opinion. When you invest the time to get the best idea of what your jewelry is worth, you will have peace of mind and know that whoever you ultimately sell your jewelry to is giving you the highest payout possible.

Choose the Jewelry Buyer For You

Choosing the right jewelry buyer for you may feel like one more decision that you need to make. However, besides actually accepting the offer of the jewelry buyer, this is your last big decision — you are almost done! When choosing a jewelry buyer in La Jolla:
