Instead of going to the internet or buy sell shops, consider buying your jewelry from a pawn shop instead. Pawn shops offer additional advantages that jewelry stores or individuals do not.

1. You can buy it at or close to wholesale

When someone brings in a piece of jewelry into a pawn shop, the item is thoroughly tested for authentication and a percentage of the value is given. The price is based on the wholesale price and the type of piece plus condition. The value is based on the wholesale price that the jewelry could be purchased new for from a wholesale supplier. This is the same place other jewelry stores buy from and then mark to retail prices to sell to the public. (Yes, many pawnbrokers buy new jewelry to resell and go to jewelry show.) Because the broker is buying or giving a loan below the wholesale value, the merchandise is sold at or below wholesale! This gives the customer a great value without the inflated price that drops once you wear the jewelry. Plus you know you are buying real product as the item was authenticated before the broker put money into the item. You do not get that from an individual!
