There are several reasons why people would want to sell diamond rings online. It can be simply to turn old diamond jewelry into a little extra cash or to make an online business of buying diamond rings high and selling for low. Whatever your reasons may be for selling diamond rings online, see how we recommend the different paths to achieve success in your endeavors.
If You Want to Sell Only a Few Diamond Rings
A lot of regular people usually only have one to a few diamond rings which they own, and the only time people think of selling these precious items is because of a death in the family, a separation, or desparate financial times. There are obviously more reasons to want to sell your family’s diamond rings, but no matter the reason, there are some resources which you can use to sell one to a few diamond rings online, even without selling them in a specific business venture (which we cover how to do in the next section).
With each of these sites, you will likely be required to pay a small fee for selling your diamond ring, but they often can yield a lot higher return than selling them to a jeweler, for instance. Because you are selling straight to the consumer, you can sell at market value and still make more than lowball offers you will likely field from third parties, even with the online sales fees.
If You Want to Make a Business From Selling Diamond Rings
There are actually two ways you can do this. First, you don’t necessarily have to sell diamond rings you personally own or purchase. This route entails marketing for a diamond ring company, usually through a website, and getting a commission whenever a diamond ring is sold to a customer who was referred by your website. Many businessmen prefer this option because it is cheap and you don’t assume any personal risk. This approach is called affiliate marketing, and it is the approach I personally recommend people take when they are first starting to sell online. Read more about affiliate marketing here and how you can get started.
The second way is to actually sell diamond rings you personally own. The best approach for this option is to find a supplier of diamond rings which you can buy low and sell high. You are competing against some big names, so what you offer has to be really unique. Next, you will want to showcase the rings with your own website, and you may even want to consider an e-commerce platform to sell them. WordPress offers this type of integration, but you will want to find something that works for you.
In either case, going the affiliate marketing route or the self-selling route, you will want to drive as many interested people as possible to your website through SEO (making your site recognizable by search engines) and paid online ads (such as those you see on Facebook or Google Ads). You don’t want to brave the web marketing alone, either, which is why I recommend checking out this course to help you.
