1. Clean it â Once you have selected the piece or pieces that you will be presenting at the Kansas City pawn shop of your choice, you need to clean it. Invest in a good cleaning solution that you can use on earrings, necklaces and bracelets. It is important that you make sure the stone is clean as well. A toothbrush does a great job of cleaning these. It is important to ensure that you clean where the Karat marks are so that your pawnbroker is able to see how many Karats it is.
2. Bring the complete set â Many times when you buy jewelry it will come with extra links, or if it is a ring it may come with a wrap. Bring all these extras with you and be sure to clean them just like you have cleaned the main piece of jewelry.
3. Bring the appraisal â If you have recently had the jewelry upraised you should definitely take it with you to the pawnbroker. This piece of paper usually has important information about the jewelry including the stones used and the metal it is made from. This information may form the basis of the pawnbrokerâs decision on how much to lend you.
4. Be realistic â A piece may have lots of sentimental value to you which may cause you to be greatly attached to it and to feel that it is one of a kind. In truth, however, most of the jewelry that is sold comes from a set of generic designs and there are usually many pieces similar to that one. Donât be surprised if the pawnbroker is not overly excited about your piece. He has probably seen several just like it.
With this information you can walk into any pawn shop Kansas City confidently and with managed expectations and get what you are looking for.
