It wasn’t that long ago that most people wouldn’t even think of selling old jewelry. Few people did it, and even when they did, it wasn’t something they talked about. Selling jewelry was considered inelegant and a sign that the family had fallen on hard times. It didn’t matter if you never wore it, or if that brooch you inherited from your great aunt was too big, tacky and not at all your style. The place for jewelry like that was in the closet, not the secondhand market.
