Here are some TOP TIPS to consider when pawning your jewelry with New York One Pawn. 

The first thing you should do is get an accurate appraisal. A qualified appraiser can give you an unbiased opinion of the jewelry’s characteristics and condition as well as highlight the positive and negative attributes that could affect its value.

If you’re short on funds and don’t want to pay for an appraisal, a professional jewelry buyer or pawnbroker will do it for free.  Visit two or three shops to get the best overall sense of what your jewelry is worth. In the end, choose the shop that offers the best price and customer service. You should feel comfortable doing business with the owner and staff. If you decide to take a pawn loan you will most likely interact with them over the months ahead or you may need their help in the future the next time you need to sell your valuables.

Having unrealistic price expectations for your jewelry is a fast way to get discouraged and miss out on a good opportunity.  Be realistic as you consider what you would like to receive for your valuables. Familiarize yourself with the going prices for precious metals and search online get get a feel for the current market value of your jewelry.  A good appraiser follows current market trends and can help you understand the potential resale value of your jewelry.

Choosing a buyer isn’t always about getting the top price. It’s also a function of how quickly you can settle a deal, how much you trust the buyer and your tolerance for negotiation and marketing.

The primary advantage of selling to someone in the jewelry industry is time.  If you want to sell quickly and safely with little fuss over marketing jewelry yourself online or elsewhere –  jewelry buyers or pawnbroker are your best option.
