ENCINITAS, CA, May 25, 2014- As the population ages, personal downsizing is occurring. In such a case, it's vital to determine the value of one’s possessions and find a reputable place where one can sell them for the best price possible.
Judy Scheuer, owner of Belle Roche Estate Jewelry Buyers, says downsizing is occurring more and more. One should go through possessions and note anything that might be of greater value first. There could be something quite valuable.
Whether one wants to sell gold, jewelry, silver, collectibles or figurines, one should find an establishment that will help you determine the right price and make an offer to buy those items.
"Being pressured for a price can make a person feel uncomfortable", said Scheuer. "The dealer is the expert. Someone who is trustworthy will be upfront with you and won’t take advantage.”
As the population ages, personal downsizing is occurring. Following are some tips to maximize the cash when selling jewelry and other fine valuables. Belle Roche Estate Jewelry Buyers can help you determine what to sell and what to keep.

What should I look for?
While used gold is still a sure thing, some fine jewelry can be worth more than just the gold weight. For instance, 1920s-era jewelry is currently quite popular. Designer jewelry such as Harry Winston, Tiffany or Cartier has strong resale value. Even costume jewelry can be quite valuable, especially if it is signed.

Scheuer gives the following advice about downsizing:
The best thing to do is sort through what you think might be of value. The first priority is what you want to pass on to family members, and then we can help you determine what you want to sell and what is of higher value. Some things will be better suited to a garage sale or the thrift store donation, but you don't want to miss something of value mistakenly sold for $5 at a garage sale!
Anything silver, even if beat up or broken, is worth money. Some patterns and brands of silver flatware and hollowware are very much in demand. Even silver-plated items may be worth selling. Most silver buyers do not want to buy them, but Scheuer said she can buy certain name-brand pieces if they are in good condition.
What else can I sell besides gold and silver?
Some figurines have held their value. Lladro and antique Meissen porcelain figurines, for example, are selling well in the second hand market. Fine china and crystal can be valuable. Scheuer will buy name-brand crystal and china that is in demand, such as Baccarat and Lalique crystal, or Herend, Royal Copenhagen and many other brands of china.
