Pricing of jewelry
If you sell your jewelry directly in a specialist shop, you can exactly understand the process of determining the price. The jewelers endeavor to explain the material value of the piece of jewelry to the customer in detail.
The current courses of the precious metal and the precious stones play a role. A good example is gold: gold jewelry is not usually pure gold. Other metals such as silver are also added, this is called gold alloy.
Gold stamped 333 (8 karat) has a fine gold content of 33.3 percent, gold stamped 585 (14 karat) has a fine gold content of 58.5 percent and gold stamped 750 (18 karat) has a fine gold content of 75 percent .
The purchase price is calculated per gram of fine gold. With a 750 alloy, the piece of jewelery contains 750/1000 parts of pure gold.

Refurbishment of used jewelry
Before the purchased jewelery is sold again, master goldsmiths rework and repair the pieces. Second-hand jewelery is very popular, as it is often a one-off.

After the revision, used jewelry is no longer recognizable as this. Even an antique piece of jewelery can look like new again. If you sell your old jewelry, you can even breathe new life into it and someone else will find their new favorite piece of jewelry.
