What You Should Know Before Buying an Engagement Ring at a Pawnshop
An engagement ring is one of the most important pieces of jewelry a person can buy. After all, it’s a symbol of pure love. However, getting gouged in a jewelry store by people trying to take advantage of your desperation to impress that special someone is the least romantic thing you can do. So please, come visit Traders Loan and Jewelry instead. We carry rare, custom, one-of-a-kind pieces that are certain to make the love of your life feel like the most important person in your world. Plus you won’t have to pay outrageous designer prices! Take a look below to learn more tips about how to make your trip out to see us even more efficient.

Know What You’re Looking For

Unlike a boutique with a set “menu” of specific items, usually in a particular style, pawn shops have a much larger selection of unique engagement rings in every style, size, shape, and color. That means, the first thing you need to do is figure out what you’re looking for. Does your significant other like diamonds? Opel? Gold? Silver? Platinum? Emeralds? Finding these things out before you start shopping will save you way more time, as well as make it easier for our staff to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Do Some Research

Do you know how much your to-be fiancé’s ideal engagement ring costs, or what any ring costs for that matter? Knowing basic market values is going to be key when it comes time to determining your budget and hunt down the actual ring – and may even save you during negotiations.

Don’t Be Afraid To Negotiate

If you’re overwhelmed from trying to find the perfect ring, don’t get discouraged. We want to help you find the engagement ring that will ensure your everlasting love, so don’t be afraid to ask questions or try to negotiate – it’s all part of the fun.

Have An Open Mind

In pawn shops, just like anywhere else, the most popular items are going to sell for the most money. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t find something extraordinarily unique tucked away. Don’t be afraid to pass up the most expensive options assuming better quality, you might even come to find that the longer a particular item is for sale, the more wiggle room there is on the price which means higher quality engagement rings for less!
