Anyone knows of a trustworthy consignment vendor for antique jewelry?

Hi all, I’m looking for a trusted vendor to help consign/purchase my antique emerald earrings. I’ve tried to sell them on my own but feel perhaps due to the lack of visibility and price over $2000 that perhaps buyers are hesitant to purchase from an individual.

I’ve reached out already to Jewels by Grace and Lang’s but the fees seem high for the value of the item. (And I don’t mean to imply any vendor blame! Perhaps my item is not super high value as to make consignment worthwhile.)

Any other recommendations? Anyone ever consign with Sin City Finds? (Seems to be very popular on Instagram!)

You might just list them on Etsy?

I‘m not qualified to say whether your earrings are actually antique but you could search out similar styles and look at their prices. Even if you don’t decide to sell privately, it couldn’t hurt to look at comps.

Good luck!

Hi PreRaphaelite! Sorry to threadjack OP, but could you elaborate on selling on Etsy? Wouldn’t OP have to create an account and if she only had one item to sell, how would that work? Sorry, I have the same question about how novices can sell consign or sell items.

OP I have seen Sin City Finds consign some items but I don’t know anything about her policies on that. I don’t know if she consigns as a favor for an existing customer, or if she is actually consigning in general. If you find out anything please post here. I like her inventory and taste very much.
