- Wedding: January 2014
I was wondering if anyone can tell me why gem stones have such a low resale value and where I can browse second hand gems?
This all came up when we took some jewellry to our jeweller to sell so that he can use the credit to make our wedding bands. There was an Australian blue sapphire of about 1.2 carat and he said he would give us $30 for it. I was quite shocked! Does that then mean that in theory it would be possible to buy second hand gems very cheaply? I had a look on the interwebz and it’s really weird, there doesn’t seem to be a site dedicated to selling second hand gems… so what gives?
