How to Sell Jewelry to a Pawn Shop AND Get Top-Dollar
The short answer is yes; you can sell jewelry at a pawn shop in San Diego. How to get a great deal from the pawn shop when selling jewelry warrants a longer answer. But with a little research and consideration, you can sell your jewelry to a pawn shop and get top-dollar in the process.
1st Step. Choose a trustworthy pawn shop. This is paramount to getting a fair deal. If you go to a shady place to sell your jewelry, you’ll get a shady deal. How to identify a reputable pawn shop? Some ideas: visit their website; see their reviews on Facebook and check their BBB rating. Make sure they belong to the National Pawnbrokers Association. Also, remember that not all pawn shops in San Diego take or accurately evaluate diamonds (we do!).
2nd Step. If your jewelry is high-end or antique, you may want to take it to an appraiser first. Be advised that appraisals carry a fee, while evaluations may not. At CashCo, we offer both in-house professional appraisals and free evaluations. Choose the option that fits your needs.
4th Step. Prepare your jewelry. A little cleaning and polishing go a long way. Also, bring any authenticity certificates you may have. For brand items, you should also fetch the original package and warranties.
3rd Step. Don’t be afraid to negotiate. The trick here is to be prepared with information. Also, be open to what the pawn agent tells you. A reputable agent is not “out to get you.” On the contrary, they want your business and may be willing to accommodate reasonable offers.
4th Step. Relax! Given that you did your homework and came to the right pawn shop, you can now relax. You are in good hands. At CashCo, we pay more money than anyone in San Diego. All transactions are confidential, and we are going to make sure that, whatever your circumstances, you feel great about choosing us.
