Previously we talked about what closeout costume jewelry is and where it’s sourced. Now let’s talk about the type of jewelry found in these lots.
I know many of you are excited about this post. Who doesn’t like a big mystery being unwrapped, right? So let’s dive into it.
Types of Jewelry
Yes, this is one of the curses of the closeout costume jewelry. It may not be for the faint of hearts. Some boxes practically come in one ball of mess. But don’t be disheartened, this is how a lot of people make money. They put the effort to detangle and voila your profitable lot is ready to be sold on eBay.
Because of overproduction, it’s likely that some merchants closeouts just one SKU. But don’t worry, we don’t sell you 100 pallets of just one bracelet. For us, it’s an opportunity to mix and match. So your lots will be customized, per your desire.
The delivery guy doesn’t care about the fragile sticker, so things generally get broken. However, with closeout costume jewelry there are a few percent higher chances of broken jewelry. First, because vendors don’t pack them well, second, jewelry is fragile. So you want to expect some broken pieces.
However, again this is an opportunity for buyers. Jewelry usually come in pairs, so if two pairs have one item broken, you will still get one set.
I must say, I have found jewelry that has been worth over 100 dollars while it cost me less than a dollar. So you can find some unique pieces. Be on the lookout for these. This is why it’s very important to sort your jewelry carefully.
Sets are great and easy to make. But you must hunt for the pairs when you have the opportunity. That’s when you just start unpacking. It’s easy to lose or dismiss a single piece of jewelry as “cheap” or even “useless”, but in pairs, they are worth more.
Usually, you will find good sets often. Obviously, it all depends on the box, but I have seen sets in almost every lot. Sets make good auction items. Save them for eBay or similar auction sites.
Congratulations you have made it to the end. Your reading must be rewarded with another secret. Well, we can’t spell the whole secrete though. The brands can not be named. But you should feel optimistic they are there. In the jewelry by the pound, you will find some well-known brands. Just like every other company, big brands also overproduce.
Now that you know what kind of jewelry you will find in Closeout costume jewelry lots, let’s learn how to sell it.
