How to Buy Jewelry Wholesale
Buying jewelry wholesale is really quite easy. The
Internet gives you access to all of the wholesale
jewelry companies you could ever need to make
your selections, so you can buy exactly what you
want or need – at very competitive prices.
There is a difference between online jewelry stores
and online wholesale companies. Online jewelry
stores sell jewelry at retail prices, even though the
price may be slightly discounted. Wholesale
companies sell jewelry at wholesale prices – which
of course are cheaper than retail prices.
There are many sites where you can purchase
directories of wholesale companies, but this really
isn’t necessary. Just use a search engine like
Google to find what you are looking for. If you are
looking for an engagement ring at a wholesale
price, for example, simply type ‘engagement ring
wholesale’ into the search box – a whole slew of
wholesalers who carry engagement rings will pop
up in the search results.
Be aware that some wholesaler’s will only sell in
bulk. Of course, if you just want to buy one
engagement ring, you do not want to buy in bulk.
But there are many companies that will sell just
one item – you just have to look for them.
If buying online isn’t what you are interested in,
consider joining a discount club, such as Sam’s.
Here you will find jewelry at deeply discounted
retail prices, which is the next best thing to jewelry
wholesale prices – but again, the wholesale prices
will be lower.
When dealing with an online wholesale company,
you need to do several things. First, you want to be
sure that you are buying the real thing. There are
many companies out there that will advertise that
their jewelry is ‘authentic.’ Read the sales copy
very carefully, and educate yourself quickly. For
instance, beware of words like ‘gold plated’ or
‘realistic.’ This is an indication that the jewelry isn’t
gold, or that stones are fake.
Also find out if the company has a refund or
exchange policy, as well as a 100% money back
guarantee. This is important, and it will protect you
if you find that you are not happy with the pieces
you have purchased, or if they are of lesser quality
than you expected.
Also consider using eBay to find jewelry wholesale
prices. Again, use caution. Check the seller’s
feedback and ratings, and make sure that you are
dealing with a reputable person or company. If the
jewelry is an important piece, use the escrow
service that eBay recommends – even if you have to
pay the escrow fees yourself!
