There are many places where you can pick up antique jewellery at very reasonable prices, and it is vital that you know where to look. If you want to add more jewellery to your collection and looking for inspiration on how you can do this while sticking to a budget, below are some ideas that will help you in your search.
Visit Antique Dealers
There will most likely be several antique dealers local to you, and many of these will be able to help you in your quest if the dealers have a website look at this before visiting them. Many antique dealers have a speciality, and you will need to know that they stock the type of antiques that you are looking for before visiting. Not all dealers will have a wide selection of antique jewellery available, so have a search on the internet for your local specialists and then visit their shops to see what they have on offer. One benefit of visiting a specialist is that you have peace of mind that you are buying something genuine, and unlike buying online you can also haggle over the price.
Antique Fairs, Flea Markets & Car Boot Sales
These types of markets and fairs are another excellent place to add to your vintage jewellery collection, and you can often find many excellent bargains. Again, it is better to attend a market or fair that specialises in jewellery, but you can still see some hidden gems if you search hard enough. At these types of events, you will also be able to haggle over the price. You also tend to find that many antique dealers attend these types of events looking for bargains as well, so it is best to get there nice and early.
You may also be able to find some good collectables on auction websites such as eBay and similar sites. However, there is a lot of competition on these sites, so you are much less likely to get a real bargain and could end up paying over the odds for a piece that you like. It is worthwhile having a look through to see what is available and see if there are any nice items that you can use the buy now option and not have to deal with the auction.
If you want more information on how to find excellent antique jewellery bargains you can find a wealth of knowledge by a quick search on Google, which will result in lots of articles that can help you.
Research Before You Buy
Before you look at going out to spend your money, it is essential that you know what it is that you are buying. Doing your research before you attend a market or go to an antique shop can help prevent you from spending too much money on an item. Make sure that you take your phone or tablet with you and you have access to the internet, as you will have a wealth of information at your fingertips which can help you to establish the worth of an item before making a purchase. You will also be able to find out how to spot a fake item and what aspects you should look at which can affect the value of the item
