Jewelry Appraisal- Appraise! Appraise, and Re-Appraise!

Jewelry Appraisal – Appraise! Appraise! and Re-Appraise!

Have your jewelry appraised! Theft is on the rise and if your jewelry hasn’t been recently appraised, it needs to be! Diamonds, gold and platinum have made huge gains over the last couple of years and if you haven’t had your jewelry updated with your insurance, you could be potentially loosing more than  your jewelry if stolen!

Have You Appraised Your Jewelry Lately?

Diamonds have increased in value almost 50% while platinum and silver have seen historical jumps in value as well.  Once you have had your appraisal, you need to call your insurance agent right way to update and validate the new value of your precious jewelry.  For example, if you paid $5,000 for a diamond necklace more than 5 years ago, it could cost you $10-$15,000 today if you had to replace it!  Of course non of us want to think about our homes being broken into, but it is a common occurrence and we can never be too careful.

Where can you find a reputable appraiser that you can trust?  One suggestion is to go through either THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF JEWELRY APPRAISERS or THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF APPRAISERS. These professionals are considered ethical and are required to be continuously educated.  Or you can go to your Boca Raton, FL own Raymond Lee Jewelers to meet with their own in-house expert and can help guide you to ensure protection and appraisal accuracy.

George Clooney’s Watch in The American: Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Last week when I was watching George Clooney‘s latest movie, The American, I was struck at how beautifully this movie was shot. Throughout this suspenseful thriller, the viewer is treated to amazing panoramic wide shots of George Clooney driving down twisted mountain side roads that stretch deep into the Italian countryside. The director really went out his way to have the cinematography tell the story as much as possible; there are many moments in the movie where there is no talking or soundtrack playing, there is only the great camera work and the real world silence we all experience everyday. Watch Sell.

It is in these silent moments that this movie truly shines. In one scene we see George Clooney quietly crafting a custom rifle in his workshop with the only noise coming from his tools and the beating of metal. I was so focused on this scene that I happened to notice the watch that was on Clooney was wearing. With the excellent camera work it was easy to identify that the watch was a Omega Speedmaster Professional with black leather strap most likely model number 3870.50.31.

It is no surprise that Clooney is wearing an Omega as he is one of their brand ambassadors and has worn an Omega brand watch in other recent movies. The Speedmaster Professional with the black leather strap has an amazing classic look. It features a powerful chronograph, which offers 12-hour, 30 minute and 1/10 second subdials. Distinctively masculine in design, it features a large, round silver stainless steel watch case with a tachymeter bezel in black with silver markings, and it measures 39.8mm wide.

Rolex Watches Same As Currency- Watch Sell

watch sell

Watch Sell

In today’s economy some believe it is better to have your money in appreciating assets that you can touch and feel rather than in the market or in cash. Obviously you have to understand the market for this to work for you. Weathly watch collectors actually make money with their watch collection! Companies such as Rolex and Patek Philippe frequently discontinued models, this creates a demand. Another thing they do to create hype is not create enough of any of their popular watches to keep up with the demand. The retails generally increase by 10 percent every year, making the preowned models increase in value as well.  It’s a lot easier than it used to be to figure out the market value of certain makes and models. Checking Ebay current listing and completed listing is one good way. Checking your local jewelers to see what they are asking for new and used watches is another.  A great way to see if the watch brand you are planning on investing in has good residual value is to see if the authorized dealers will discount that brand. If you walk into the authorized dealer and negotiate a discount on a new watch of 40% off retail chances are you should stay away from that brand. Watch sell. Now, if the model you want is sold out chances are this is the one to go with if you can find it. One thing to keep in mind is that sometimes a company that does not have great resale will create one model that sells great. This is usually very temporary, which means that you buy it when it super hot and when your tired of it so is everyone else. Which kills resale.

Preowned Luxury Watch Sales Soar

Preowned Luxury Watches

Preowned Luxury Watches

Judging by the state of the economy it would make sense that the preowned luxury watches market would be in the toilet, right? Wrong!  While new watch sales are down significantly across the country, preowned luxury watch sales are on their way up!

Here is my take on it. 2 years ago at the beginning of the crunch, people flocked to our store to liquidate jewelry, watches and diamonds to pay there bills. A lot of these people took huge hits because most of them bought there stuff brand new at retail. When these people sold the Rolex’s off their wrist for 50 percent less than they paid, they got smarter. These same people have recovered and still remember what it was like to take such a hit when they had to. We told them all at the time, “when it comes time for you to replace your stuff, come and see us.” Now they are.

Preowned luxury watch sales are through the roof and it’s not just due to American buyers. Emerging markets all over the world are interested in the preowned luxury watch market. The neat thing about it is each culture has a completely different taste in watches. Watches you can’t give away here may be the most popular items in another country. Plus the declining dollar makes American sold products even more desirable to overseas clients.

Jewelry Loans This Holiday Season

Jewelry Loans

Jewelry Loans

As October is ending and November is beginning we all start to think about the holidays.  Every year when Thanksgiving comes around we all get excited for the celebrations, spending quality time with family, and of course gifts.   Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa we all need to start thinking about what we are going to buy.

Everyone knows that gift giving and receiving is part of the holidays and can get quite expensive.  We are always scraping together some extra cash for family members to try and satisfy their requests.  This year, why not get jewelry loans in order to pay for all of your gifts?  Jewelry loans offer a great opportunity for you to get cash immediately without selling or giving up any property.  Simply bring your jewelry into Raymond Lee Jewelers.  We will evaluate your piece and offer you an amount of money for it.  Just pay the small interest rate we charge for housing your jewelry and pick up your jewelry at the end of the loan.  Three months should give you enough time to save up money you spent on gifts this holiday season.  Do not go into credit card debt just to buy gifts.  Jewelry loans are a great alternative and don’t ruin your credit.

Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we make jewelry loans as simple as possible.  We have a standard rate of interest we charge all of our clients to make the negotiations easy.  We offer several ways for making payments such as over the phone, in person, or online.  Jewelry loans make the most sense for those of us who need extra cash this holiday season.
