For insurance purposes, fine jewelry is appraised at retail replacement value – the cost for comparable replacement in the retail marketplace. Years ago, this was a fairly easy computation since most jewelers charged about the same amount for like merchandise. Today, we see a radically different retail environment as traditional jewelers compete for sales with internet and wholesale dealers like City Diamond Exchange. This has created the potential for a large price spread, based upon your source.The benefit when you sell your diamond in Nashville to CDE is that we have sources all over the world. This allows us to work on smaller margins of profit in order to get YOU the money you want and that others wont give.
It stands to reason that you cannot sell your personal jewelry for as much as the lowest cost retailer. Why would someone pay you the same as to an established business with return or trade-up policies, services, etc? For one thing, your jewelry is used and once off the showroom floor, it deprecates. And, since you are not supporting a business – its employees, expenses and inventory – you are not entitled to the mark-up necessary to stay in business so your jewelry is what someone else is willing to pay for it. However it is because of that reason why CDE can pay your more for it. Less overhead =’s more money. This is why so many people come to see us in Nashville to sell their Jewelry.
