So when we first lay eyes upon this jewellery, we are filled with hope. After a relationship has ended, not so much. Other than being used as projectiles in arguments(we don’t recommend this as a use) and hiding them in drawers and jewellery boxes, what can we do with our unloved jewellery?
I used to work in a pawnbrokers shop, where disgruntled partners are a common scene. We didn’t have the connection with the engagement rings that the customers did. We often only paid for the metals. Customers would sometimes throw the rings down and complain about why and how this happened to their relationships. Some would say “I don’t care how much I get” or “is that all I’m worth?”, which made me upset for them. People do not want to make the effort to come in store and sell it only to be told the gold weight makes it worth £36.92.
I decided to set up Jewlx to try and help those facing this situation. You might not love it anymore, wouldn’t you want someone else to? I spent a lot of time destroying engagement rings and wedding bands. Seeing someone else’s hopes and dreams smashed under a hammer is not a pleasant job. When you sell your unloved jewellery, you could be helping someone else get their dream engagement ring. You could be stopping that ring being smashed and melted down. On top of that, you could use the money to buy yourself something you will cherish.
Selling jewellery yourself means you get the profits. You will earn substantially more if you sell yourself and we have the perfect platform for you. You wouldn’t have to deal with anyone face to face and you make a better salesman when you don’t tell people you hate it. You won’t get a price close to what was paid brand new, as new prices can be inflated. You will however, get more than metal weight alone. They say “every cloud has a silver lining” this can be applied here. You get to spend the money on whatever you want and someone has got a great priced engagement ring.
