Harvesting Returns in Gold

For the past years, the price of gold has been steadily increasing, and has been nearing an all-time high.  Thus, a lot of market insiders have been saying that these days would be a good time for selling gold jewelry to make a good profit.  However, be warned that not every buyer will be offering to buy your gold jewelry at a fair price.  Thus, you need to be more knowledgeable of your options so that you can make more money in selling gold jewelry. Take extra caution before emptying your necklace display stand and cash in on your investment.

Perhaps the most popular manner of selling gold jewelry is to sell them to antique jewelry dealers in exchange for cash.  Your evaluation skills will be put to the test here as you will not really be sure if the pawnshop or jeweler will be giving you the best price for your jewelry.  You need to know how to negotiate so that you will get the selling price right.  If your jewelry has an appraisal, make sure to have it handy when dealing with the jeweler.  At a pawnshop you will have the option of buying back the jewelry if you opt to do so.  Otherwise, be ready to sell your jewelry at scrap price.     

With the popularity of the Internet, selling products though auction websites has also been a welcome option.  Buyers can bid for your gold jewelry up until you deem to get a good price.  Just make sure that you present your pieces the best way possible through high quality necklace displays. However, if you think that only buyers get scammed for not getting the merchandise they bid for, you are wrong.  Sellers can also be scammed by unscrupulous buyers.  It is best to consult someone well-versed in the ins and outs of bidding websites so that you will not get duped.

Auctioning for your gold jewelry can also be done physically.  You will have an auction house and an auctioneer work for you.  Make sure that you know the approximate resale price of your item, and if the auctioneer thinks that the item will sell or be at least near the price, to level off expectations.  Make sure you are ready with your appraisal documents.

Sterling Silver or White Gold?

Investing in jewelry is one act that a woman can make without any regrets.  Who would when you can use your investment and enjoy it while it is still in your possession? This tangible thing is one investment that you can clearly enjoy using.  So when you see your wife or girlfriend checking out those in the necklace display area of the store, do not be worried as she is thinking of what to invest in.

Most of the people who invest in jewelry prefer to purchase those that have metallic settings or those with precious stones. The common ones are white gold and sterling silver.  These two are always mistaken one for the other.   White gold is an alloy which is a mixture of gold and another precious metal. The addition of the other metal takes away the yellowish tint that gold is known for.  Sterling silver on the other hand is a different metal and is considered to be the highest grade of silver.

Similarities
  • Both sterling silver and white gold have the same tint of shiny white metallic surface. Because of this sheen, they also look similar to platinum, and the color makes them look sophisticated and 
  •  Both are considered precious metals, and thus their prices make them very good investments, aside from looking great too.
  • Both sterling silver and white gold are commonly used for jewelry pieces like rings, necklaces, and pendants.
Differences
  • Obviously, they are different metals. Sterling silver tends to tarnish faster than white gold.
  • They have different values as gold is more expensive than silver. Thus, white gold is still more expensive than silver.
  • Sterling silver can be used in other items like pill boxes, jewelry boxes and napkin rings, something that white gold would also could be used for, but would be more impractical since it is expensive.

Depending on the budget, one can choose between a necklace display with white gold or sterling silver.   
They both look good especially when the craftsmanship is superb.

Going for Beaded

Necklaces are one go-to accessory that you must have in your jewelry collection.  It can easily dress up an otherwise plain-looking outfit.  You can easily mix and match it with other pieces as well as use it with any outfit that you have.  Those pieces that you see in the necklace display section of your favorite store should be given a chance to be worn.

Beaded necklaces are very versatile.  You can wear them in different lengths and there would be no problem layering them as each piece can stand out.  Another great thing about beaded necklaces is that they are easy to maintain.  You just have to wipe them out with a clean cloth before storing them back to the hanging racks so that they will maintain their color. Alas, beaded necklaces have a certain elegance and sophistication and yet maintain a certain simplicity, depending on the material the beads are made of.

For all of you fans of beaded necklaces, here are some tips in wearing this necklace piece:


·        Match the size of the beads with the body size of the one who will wear it so that it will be proportional looking. It is best to match small beads with someone who is petite so that it item won’t look heavy. Pieces with small beads worn by someone who's tall and curvy may make the necklace look like a choker. On the other hand, if a necklace with large beads is worn by a woman with a small stature, the necklace might look like it swallows it wearer.

·        Make sure that the length will be proportional to the neckline. Long beaded necklaces can be used and would look better with outfits that have plunging necklines.

·        Colors to use will depend on the color of the outfit depending if you want it to match or be in contrast.

·       Be wary of the weight of the necklace so as not to tire your neck. Some layered beaded necklaces can weigh so much that they can actually cause discomfort to the poor wearer. 

·        Do not be afraid to experiment with the various shapes of the beads that you see in the necklace display section.

If you own a jewelry store, chances are you know the importance of having the right display cases.  Cases like necklace display, earrings racks, and bracelet displays, among others are essential in your pursuit of selling more jewelry and in turn, increase your sales. These items help in showcasing the best items that you have in store for the customers, as they can easily see the items if they are placed in these jewelry displays.
There are a lot of display cases that you can utilize.  They are made of different materials, which means you can customize your display depending on your theme.  The kind of display case that you use for your necklace also depends on how you want to display your necklace pieces. You can be creative as you want to be. 

For example, necklace busts some of the more common ones that you see in jewelry stores.  A necklace bust is usually covered with velvet cloth to protect the necklace from getting scratched.  This is a nice way of displaying a necklace as the details of the workmanship can be easily inspected without having to touch the piece. Moreover, since the bust resembles someone actually wearing the necklace, the person looking at it would be able to see how the jewelry piece “falls” – how long or short it is and how “heavy” or “light” it is in terms of the design details. When using a necklace rack or a necklace case to display your jewelry pieces, your customers may view the pieces as flat, since they are just placed in the shelf of the rack or case. When a necklace is “worn” by a bust, it is easier to paint a mental picture of how the necklace looks when it is actually worn.

You can easily make your own display bust with just a few materials like thick cardboard box and cutter.  There are a lot of instructions online on how to go about making this. You can customize it by covering it with the cloth of your choice.

It is really important to make a necklace display that is eye-catching as this will catch the attention of your buyers.  This will help you increase your store sales.  For ready made necklace display cases  that pack a punch, have a look at available models in Nile Corp’s extensive selection.

Social events are perfect occasions for women to dress up and show off their jewelry.  This is the best time to bring out the long chains from the necklace display at home and show-off.  Pearl strands are best to use when on formal occasions.  When going on a night outs, you can wear those big statement necklaces as this is perfect to use with off-shoulder and tube outfits. For dainty dresses, simple chains made of gold or silver with small to medium sized pendants are perfect for afternoon cocktails.  It really depends on the outfit that you are wearing as to what necklace should be worn.

Other pieces you can consider are bib necklaces as well as necklaces made of natural materials.  Just remember, bib necklaces are perfect for those outfits with simple necklines. Having bib necklaces while you are wearing clothes with busy necklines like draped collars would be too much, and would even make you look like a fashion victim. That would be too much going on, so it is advised to keep it simple with the clothes if you want to wear something dramatic with a piece such as a bib necklace. But that being said, bib necklaces and pieces made of natural materials are perfect for simple social occasions that you have to attend.

Necklace Display on a Budget

Keeping our jewelry neatly arranged can sometimes be hard to do.  After a tiring day, we just put away our earrings, bracelets, watch and necklace on top of the dresser where we can easily find it the next day. Sometimes, when someone (a hired cleaner, for example) does a little rearranging to keep our dressers tidy, we even get a bit irritated, because most of us want to find our stuff exactly where we last left them; a sense of order amid the chaos that only we can understand. Like our closets, our jewelry displays get emptied with all our pieces scattered just about everywhere. However, we do not know that this can ruin our jewelry pieces because it can get scratched and eventually get lost as it can fall down from the dresser without us knowing it.
