Jewelry is a style driven industry. Some styles are classic and stay around for decades, others last just a few months. Out of date or style estate jewelry will not command premium price. In fact some styles are so out of favor that the jewelry’s only value is its scrao worth. The other extreme is that the jewelry could be antique.
Condition is a major determining factor of the price received for your jewelry. Damaged and broken jewelry many times justify the restoration costs but most of the time damaged jewelry is only valued at its intrinsic worth. Jewelry repair in many instances is counter-intuitive. I have seen jewelry that has been mangled in such a way that the cost of restoration is minor and easily justified. On the other hand what appeared to be an insignificant problem rendered the jewelry unrestorable.
