Our business model is unlike that of other area jewelry stores. In fact, we’re one of the only all-consignment jewelry stores in, not just North Carolina, but the nation. There are many benefits to consigning your unwanted jewelry
“The process for selling my jewelry was thoroughly explained, easy to understand, and all went very smoothly.”
Close a Life Chapter
Most of the jewelry that makes its way to our jewelry store in Cary, NC comes to us as the result of a change -- a lifestyle evolution, a closed chapter, an upgrade, or the liquidation of an estate. Our model allows our customers to bring new life to our sellers’ discarded pieces.
Recycle and Repurpose
What better way to go “green” than by finding a new home for a previously-used piece of jewelry? We’re here to extend the life of jewelry that no longer suits you. Our custom design and heirloom solutions also enable us to bring new life to old, dated, and unwanted styles.
More Potential Buyers
Our wide customer base knows we have an extensive, always-evolving collection. Joint Venture Jewelry’s unique consignment model attracts clients from Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greensboro and beyond. Our reputation for amazing selection, at unbeatable prices, means we are the first stop for clients on the hunt for unique and hard-to-find jewelry styles.
Placing your jewelry on consignment tends to yield the highest return. It also increases your chances of selling pieces you no longer love and wear. While pawnshops typically only offer cash value for the materials of your piece, we give you a quote that more accurately represents the fair-market value of the jewelry you bring to us. Once you agree to consign your unwanted jewelry, we do all the work!
Consignment for Sellers FAQs:
We like to start by setting up a complimentary, no-obligation appointment. This ensures a member of our family of jewelry experts is able to provide you with one-on-one attention. Bring your jewelry, along with any relevant paperwork you may have. No quantity is too big or too small. We’ll evaluate each piece of jewelry in accordance with industry standards and guidelines to determine a fair-market value as well as its marketability to our clients.
We ask you to arrive at your appointment with an idea of what kind of recovery dollars you’re hoping to receive for your jewelry. As is typical of a consignment business model, you do not receive compensation until your jewelry is sold. During your appointment, we will determine the dollar amount we can guarantee to you upon the sale of your items. Once we’ve established an acceptable amount, we draw up a contract.
“Wonderful place! I have consigned jewelry and received the best return from any other place.”
We accept fine jewelry composed of genuine gemstones set in sterling silver, gold, platinum or palladium. We do not accept costume jewelry, nor do we consign non-jewelry items.
We don’t want to leave you guessing about the return on your valuable jewelry. As a result, we don’t work based on a percentage. Your contract guarantees a dollar amount you will receive once your item is sold. Any discounts or special deals offered to the buyer will be taken out of Joint Venture Jewelry’s profits.
It’s very difficult to predict how long it will take a piece to sell. There are many factors that play into the timeframe, including the time of year, price range, and uniqueness of the piece. Your contract guarantees your jewelry a place in our inventory, fully insured and visible, not only in our showcase but also on our website for a minimum of two years. After the initial two-year period you may choose to extend or collect your consigned pieces. Don’t worry and have patience -- we work hard to find the perfect new home for each piece..
Should you decide you want to keep your piece before your item is sold, we require a 24-hour notice for jewelry pickup. If your consignment items have been sold or are on layaway for another client, you will not be able to reclaim the piece. Ending your contract early will result in a $50 termination fee per piece.
No, you do not. Our in-store team includes appraisers to verify the quality of the jewelry we sell.
