Used JewelryWinter is over, the snow is slowly melting, and it's just about time to tackle that spring cleaning list. Instead of breaking out the mop and broom, clean out your jewelry box and cash in on the old pieces you no longer wear!

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to sell your jewelry to a scrap metal refinery to get money for it. If your jewelry is still in good condition, selling it to your local jeweler will give you more selling options, and they may be able to offer you more for the item than its scrap value.

If you have used jewelry you are considering selling, continue reading and learn about all of the selling options you have to choose from:

1) Sell Your Used Jewelry

If you have no attachment to a piece and just want to get cold hard cash for it, your best option is to sell it to a local jeweler or a pawnshop. If they think that they can sell the item in their showcase, they will give you an offer that is based on the price they will be able to sell it at.

It's important to gauge the value of your jewelry before deciding where to sell it. If you believe that people would pay more for the piece in a jewelry store than a pawnshop, you will probably get a better offer from your local jeweler. With that being said, you should still shop around and see which location will give you the best offer.

2) Trade It In For Credit Towards Another Purchase

If you want to get the most value for your sale, consider trading your item for store credit. Most places will give you an offer for trade in credit that is slightly higher than their cash offer.

This is a great way to keep your jewelry collection stocked with new pieces while recycling the ones you don't wear as much.

At Long's Jewelers we encourage our customers to trade their old jewelry for credit towards new pieces. To do this, we offer everyone a store credit offer that is 25% greater than our cash offer.

3) Remount Stones Into A New Piece

If you have jewelry that you don't wear but it contains gemstones or diamonds you would like to keep, you may want to consider getting the stones remounted into a new piece. This will give your precious stones a new life and will give you a new piece at a low price!

Think about it... Not only will you save money by not having to buy a brand new piece, but any scrap metal and stones that you choose to sell will be subtracted from the price of your new piece. This is a great way to upgrade a piece of jewelry or even to transform an inherited piece into a modern beauty. Sell Your Used Jewelry

This is also a great option if your stone has sentimental value. Sometimes it can be hard to part with a diamond especially if it has a story behind it. You can still treasure those memories by keeping the stone and resetting it to create a new piece. That way, you don't have to part with something that you really care about.
