Best potential return on investment

Selling your fine jewellery, Swiss watch or designer item (including second hand) through an auction house often means that you will potentially achieve the largest sales figures and best price for your item. Various discerning buyers will be bidding on your items, which can lead to your jewellery being sold at prices you would not have been offered elsewhere.



A popular and trustworthy auction house carries with it a reputation for immaculate items. This means that if your fine jewellery pieces, luxury watches or designer handbags are accepted by an auction house, you can rest assured in the knowledge that the potential buyers will know that the items are of good quality and are authentic. This means that you can potentially benefit from much higher returns and get the most money!



When your jewellery is accepted by a reputable auction house, the items are placed in a catalogue that is circulated to a lot of people, which significantly raises the chances of your items being sold. All other marketing activities regarding your jewellery are also undertaken by the auction house.



Using an auction house to sell your item means that you will not necessarily be utilising the fastest method on the market, but you are showing your items to an audience of very engaged buyers that are at the auction, or bidding online around the world, with the intention to buy jewellery.



Remember that all reputable auction houses must be compliant with various Commonwealth laws and regulations, which means that you don’t have to worry about dubious transactions taking place.
