For those with a real love of Antique Jewelry, by now you will have realised that it can cost substantial amounts of money. It is possible however to save yourself a lot of time, heartache and money if you can learn how to buy Antique Jewelry, wholesale properly.

In the age of the Web , it is common for people to head for online auction sites, such as eBay, in the hope of finding a good deal. Amongst thousands trying to do the same thing there is going to be massive competition. You are likely to find that the seller has just as much experience if not more and will have priced his auction at the right level.

This does not mean that bargains cannot be found at online auctions. Keep an eye out at popular auctions just in case bargains us do come up however. Check out jewelry auctions, as well as the antiques section. It is useful to establish the credibility of the seller before you make a bid. Use an escrow service if the price is high. More importantly, communicate with the seller to make sure you understand exactly what you're buying.

But don't give up - there are other, better sources of wholesale antique jewelry. Be creative in where you look and try and find places that others haven't discovered yet. One great resource is your local newspaper. Enquire locally to see whether any estate or garage sales are going to be held nearby. there is a possibility that the seller might be slightly ignorant of what it is they have to sell. You may well find your self with an invaluable resource on your doorstep.

If you're going to trawl local sales for bargains, though, don't make it too obvious when you're interested in a piece of jewelry. If you get out a magnifying glass and start examining the piece in detail, you're likely to tip off the owner. It is extremely likely that if you know your antique jewelry in your assumption may well be correct.For the sake of a few dollars, it's better to buy the jewelry and take it away for close examination or valuation, rather than risk having the price skyrocket because of your interest.
