Antique Jewelry Wholesale

Antique jewelry is typically very valuable, and  purchasing such jewelry costs quite a bit of money.  But then again, it is possible to buy antique jewelry  wholesale as well – if you know where to look.

Most people think that online auctions, such as  eBay is the way to go. While this is true  occasionally, you will usually find that the seller  knows the value of what they are selling, and the  price is quite high. There are other ways to find  antique jewelry at wholesale prices – or below.

Keep an eye on your newspaper for advertised  estate sales and garage sales. Typically, at these  sales, the people holding the sale really don’t know  the value of what they have. You can literally  purchase hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of  antique jewelry for just a few dollars on a typical  Saturday morning.

It is important that you not look too closely at the  jewelry when you are buying it. If the piece is  valuable, you don’t want the seller to know how  valuable it is! It isn’t your fault that they didn’t get it  appraised – as you will as soon as you leave! Keep  a straight face, keep your happiness and joy to  yourself, and pay the fifty cents or two bucks that  they want for the piece, get in your car and head to  a trusted jeweler for an appraisal!

It is possible that the piece isn’t worth anything – but occasionally, you will stumble across some real  finds! Even if the piece isn’t worth anything, if you  make jewelry, you may be able to disassemble it  for the parts.

Finding antique jewelry wholesale is very exciting.  In fact, spending those Saturday mornings at the  yard sales and estate sales may even become  addicting! Yard sales and estate sales – especially  estate sales where grandchildren are not interested  in their grandma’s old ugly jewelry are the best  sources for antique jewelry at wholesale prices – or  below wholesale prices.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t some real find  on eBay as well, so don’t discount it. Keep an eye  on the jewelry categories, as well as the antique or  vintage categories. When you do find something  you want to bid on, make sure that the seller has a  good reputation. If the piece is very expensive, use  the escrow service that is recommended by eBay.
 Also talk to the seller quite a bit to be sure that you  understand exactly what is being advertised!
