TIPS FOR BUYING DESIGNER JEWELRY AND WATCHES ON EBAY
As I mentioned in my last post about eBay I have a slight obsession with luxury items. I’ve always had expensive tastes, even before I went to college. My obsession with designer bags, clothes, and jewelry definitely increased when I started this blog three years ago. Prior to starting this blog, I didn’t have nearly the designer collection I do now. However, I never want to just burn cash away and I certainly don’t want to break the bank. So where do I shop for all things designer – eBay! I love shopping on eBay as I can usually find exactly what I want at a significant discount from retail. Not only do I buy most of my designer bags on eBay, but I also shop for authentic jewelry jewelry and watches on eBay too! As a matter of fact, the outfit I am wearing in today’s post was purchased entirely on eBay!
LUXURY JEWELRY ON EBAY
I love buying designer jewelry on eBay. For classic pieces that never seem to go out of style, eBay is a wonderful resource. By, far I have found the best prices for designer jewelry to be on eBay. I can see why this is the case, as the commission charged is so much lower than other consignment sites (around 12% on eBbay compared to up to 55% on The Real Real). So if you are a small independent seller you are much better off selling your designer jewelry on eBay. And this is why the selection is so much better on eBay!
My classic David Yurman bracelet was purchased on eBay. I found the size and color I wanted very easily on the site. You can find designer brands such as Chanel, Van Kleef, and John Hardy too. This Chanel necklace would go with just about everything I wear. I love the timeless look of this onyx and gold Van Kleef pendant. And this John Hardy necklace has been on my wish list for quite some time!
Designer Watches on eBay
eBay is a great resource for luxury watches too. My Michele Deco Diamond watch I wear all the time was purchased on eBay. It arrived brand new and in mint condition (and at a significant savings off of retail!). I also recently purchased this Michele watch on eBay too. If you have any concerns about authenticity, you can also shop eBay’s large collection of authentic watches. You can find brands such as Rolex, Cartier, and Longines, to name a few. And again you can often find them at a significant savings over retail!
FINAL SUGGESTIONS FOR BUYING LUXURY ITEMS ON EBAY
If I could offer any final tips, it would be to buy local (that is, in the United States). There are so many sellers in countries such as Germany and Japan, but they don’t usually offer returns, and there is little recourse for purchasing counterfeit jewelry or watches. With so many sellers in the United States, that I can usually find a pretty good selection. And definitely choose “Buy It Now” when you can. It takes less time and stress. By choosing a buy it now auction I know exactly what I am going to pay. Often times there is a “Make Offer” option, and I will make an offer that is usually $100-$150 lower than the buy it now price. More often than not my offer is accepted.
I hope you have found this post helpful! And thanks so much for stopping by!
