Pawn Shop - Zurich, Luzern, Zug

Are there any good pawn shops around? I have something I want to sell...but want a good price. Maybe a pawn shop is the wrong place. I'm trying to sell a US$2,500 diamond ring...not sure where to go here for the best price.

Zurcher Pfandleihkasse (run by ZKB). You'll get about 20% of the estimate. If you don't pay them back and the stuff is sold at auction, you'll also get the difference between what they gave you + interest and what was paid at auction. So not great unless you are desparate.

Thought of www.ricardo.ch ?

the mark up on jewelry is huge, so be prepared for a nasty surprise.

Your best bet is save it and give it to the next one ..... just make sure you get it adjusted to the right size, and she'll never know it was (from) damaged goods.
