Selling gemstones or other crystals is not always an easy task and yet it can bring you a lot of money. Most of the time, the sites specialized in lithotherapy offer a service of stone purchase, but it is not always the case. The question is therefore how to sell safely its stones and in which shop you go.
TO SELL YOUR STONES WITH AN AGENCY
The first and most classic solution to sell a gemstone is to use an agency specialized in gem repurchase. To sell with confidence and at the right price, this is certainly the best option since, in addition to buying back your stones, the agency also provides you with gem experts who will analyse and estimate the value of your crystal. This service can be paid for or free depending on the sign you choose.
Note also that these experts will be able to inform you and accompany you throughout the sale, which will allow you to benefit from an efficient assistance in order to find a potential buyer quickly. One of the advantages of this solution is also that you won’t have to do much since the agency takes care of everything. You will have to pay a commission on the sale, but this is the price you have to pay for a secure transaction.
SELLING THROUGH A SPECIALIZED SITE
It is also possible to find a buyer for your gemstone through an online sales site. The advantage of these specialized sites is that the commission is lower, but it is important to be careful to avoid scams. Ideally, you should choose a reputable site that someone close to you has already used. This way you can be sure that the transaction is secure.
Selling via specialised sites also offers the advantage of fast service. Because the Internet covers a very wide audience, it is easier to find a buyer on the Net than in a physical shop. If you need liquidity quickly, this is the ideal solution.
WHAT INFLUENCES THE PRICE OF A STONE?
If you have decided to sell a gemstone, whether on the Internet or in an agency, it is essential to know the different elements that will decide the price of the stone in order to sell it at the right price. Please note that prices are established according to the rarity, quality, shape, intensity and weight of the gemstone.
In order to avoid selling your stone at a price lower than its real value, do not hesitate to ask for an estimate from the site or the targeted agency. You will then be able to compare 3 or 4 quotes obtained in order to know the best deal.
