Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I Make Money Buying Jewelry?
Answer: Jewelry and gemstones of ANY kind (except those purchased for very high prices), are a terrible investment. Most websites that claim they wholesale quality gemstone at wholesale up to 80% retail price are usually frauds. They use inflated retail prices and other careful marketing tricks to make it seem like you are getting a great deal, that would be easy to resell. The standard in wholesale is to sell Jewerly at 50% retail asking price. Anything better then that, is usually too good to be true.
