Do You Know Australian Business That Buys Second-Hand Jewelry?

I'm wondering if anyone here knows of someone that buys 2nd hand designer jewellery and then resells it. I know these stores are common in the US but I haven't really found a similar alternative here.

I have a Tiffany & Co necklace that I would like to get a valuation for, and it's not something I want to put up on eBay since there are so many counterfiet products.

If it's designer or valuable jewelery I know places like Paris 99 (http://paris99.net) in Melbourne purchase, then re-sale high end pieces. And a friend of mine, Lara McPherson is about to launch 'Wardrobe Wonderland' which I think may end up doing similar, or some version of re-selling/hiring pieces to people. Though both of these tend to deal in vintage and couture.

Otherwise, Etsy has lots of designer stuff for re-sale, and because of the close-knit community on their site, I think counterfeiters and dodgy merchants are pretty quickly dealt with. The stores seem to have a more 'human' and legitimate reputation than those on eBay.

I think that the following website https://www.jaa.com.au/consumers/guidance/selling-your-jewellery will be helpful whether you are looking to sell jewellery in Sydney or anywhere else in Australia, or if you are looking to buy any.

Not sure about your Tiffany & Co necklace but try to approach to the services that are buying diamonds, engagement rings or valuable stuff like that. I'm not sure they'll give you a great price, however, you can at least have a clue about the value of your item.

Google consignment stores. They will offer your piece for sale then keep a cut of the sale price.

Cash converters, pawn shops? I can't imagine you would get much from them though.
