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.

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.
