What To Do With Unwanted Jewelry

Over time, you will likely accumulate many items that you stop finding helpful or no longer want for one reason or another. This frequently happens as our lives change, and we find ourselves on different paths than we once were.

Sadly,this can happen with jewelry. As your tastes change or your circumstances change, you may find that your older pieces are sitting languishing in your jewelry box, no longer loved or worn. This is a shame, especially for fine jewelry. But there are many options available to you should you find you need to redistribute your unwanted jewelry.

Sell It

You can visit a pawnbroker or second-hand jeweler to see how much you can make by selling your old jewelry. You won’t get what it is worth from places like this, but you can sell the items quickly and make some money when you sell diamonds for cash along with other gems, gold or silver too.

Alternatively, you can sell it directly and make more money yourself via online reselling websites such as eBay. It might take you longer to sell, and you cannot guarantee how much you will sell the item for, if at all, but it is still a viable selling option to consider.

Remount Stones

Getting gemstones or diamonds remounted into a new piece of jewelry may be an option if you have jewelry that you don’t wear, but that contains gemstones or diamonds that you want to keep. Resetting gems will give your precious stones a new lease on life while also providing you with a new piece at a low cost!

As a bonus, any scrap metal and stones that you sell will be deducted from the price of your new piece, resulting in a savings of money over purchasing a brand-new piece. You can use this technique to upgrade an existing jewelry item or transform an inherited piece into a modern work of art.

Gift To Family Members

If you have some jewelry heirlooms that you aren’t using, you might want to consider gifting them to family members who can also get some enjoyment from them. If you aren’t using them and don’t want to see them sold, you can ask who would like to keep these items and gifts accordingly. Of course, you would need to discuss any conditions you have, but this is a great option to remove them from your possession while still keeping them in the family.


Donating your jewelry is essentially giving it away. While you are right not to want to do this with sentimental pieces or family heirlooms, less expensive items might be appreciatively received by charitable organizations. They can sell them to raise funds or to distribute them to families who might not be able to afford to purchase jewelry or even watches to assist with things such as job interviews, education, and more.

Giving your unwanted jewelry a new lease of life can help you find a new love for items or make some money from pieces you no longer want to own. Either way, it can be better than leaving them sitting unused, collecting dust in your closet.

Do you have a business but are struggling to get organized? Are you doing well but don’t know how to grow your company?

If so, no need to panic! There is a lot of information out there that can help get your business on the right track. Here are a few tips to get you started. Dive in!

Outsource Tasks 

Outsourcing tasks is an excellent way to free up time to focus on getting other parts of your business under control. You can also pay someone else a virtual assistant or office manager, which will result in a better quality of the product delivered by the person you outsource tasks to and thus less work for yourself.

Also, when outsourcing tasks, you must ensure you take your time in choosing the right provider. Choosing the best can help build your business. For instance, if you want to create a website for your company, choosing a web designer such as WEBX360 can guarantee you get remarkable results that will grow your business.

Create a Planner 

A digital planner is a great way to get organized. Create one where you can write down your goals monthly, weekly, and daily on separate pages for each day of the month.

This will give you an overview of what you need to do in your business throughout the month while giving yourself specific tasks or jobs that need completing at different times of the week.

Manage All Expenses and Receipts 

The first thing you should do is to make sure you are handling all of your receipts. Many people make a mistake by setting them aside for later, which is not good because it can lead to missing out on important information or submitting incorrect taxes at the end of the year.

Not only that, but a problem can arise with your business where someone comes in asking questions about what the company spent money on. This could potentially be a disaster because you will have no proof that says otherwise other than just saying so, which may or may not work against you depending on who’s doing the questioning.

Go Paperless

Use online accounting software such as QuickBooks to take care of all your business finances and expenses. This will help you become more organized, track what gets paid for, and generate reports that tax preparers or investors can use to see how the business is doing.

Even if you’re only a sole proprietorship with no employees at this stage, it never hurts to set up an LLC (or other legal entity) because it protects your assets from any lawsuits against the company.

Keep Up with Your Employees 

Keeping up with your employees means that you need to know what they’re doing. Businesses should be organized so that their managers can track how each employee is performing, which will vary depending on the type of business.

Every company has different ways in which its managers meet with employees throughout the day or week. Still, all companies have some form of meeting structure so that everyone’s work is documented and evaluated by a higher-up figure who knows exactly where things stand for every worker at any given moment.

 It is essential to ensure that you get organized in your business. This can help boost efficiency and productivity levels. Use the above tips to achieve this.
