Does jewelry sell well on craigslist??

I have a new 1/4 carat diamond solitaire ring I am wanting to sell. Anyone ever tried selling jewelry on craiglist? Would it be better to put it on ebay?? I've never sold on either site, what are the pro's and con's of each?? Thanks!

I bought my wedding ring set on Craigslist! Granted, I got a heckuva deal on it... I think I paid 75% less than he did (busted engagement). It was a Scott Kay setting with the center diamond. You can try Craigslist and see what offers you get, but I wouldn't expect to recoup much over 25% of what you paid.

For your security, I would do CL over Ebay. You get cash in hand, agree to meet at an appraiser's office in case the buyer would like an appraisal (at his expense, which is what I did) and there's no buyer's remorse or risk of dispute. And no fees to you.

Good luck!

That's right. Take cash only as there are check scammers out there. Meeting at an appraiser's office is a good idea. Good luck with the sale!
