Let’s face it: rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other jewelry items carry some of the highest markups in the retail industry. That’s why most people prefer to shop the sales and only purchase jewelry that has been marked down significantly. Knowing that sales crop up at each holiday like clockwork, you would have to be really desperate, wealthy, or ignorant to pay full price for a piece of jewelry rather than waiting for the sale.
Fortunately, there is an even better alternative to shopping retail sales: jewelry auctions. When you shop at auction, you get amazing discounts plus the ability to shop any time of the year. This makes jewelry auctions excellent deals for consumers who are willing to spend a bit of time educating themselves about jewelry and browsing auctions for the pieces that appeal to them.
