    Not the same old jewelry question

    I know we can barter with jewelers, but has anyone ever taken a piece of jewelry back to where they purchased it after a period of time and used it to trade? I have a bracelet from Little Switzerland that I got in the early 90s that I don't wear. I took it to a local jeweler who buys gold, but he said it was too nice for him to buy for just the gold. He suggested I take it with me on vacation and try to trade it. I'm pretty sure I can find the receipt.

    We've done it. I'd guess it depends on the store.

    Give it a try!
    Many of the stores will accept trade on their diamonds or other gems.

    A friend of mine has done this many times. She always deals with the same jeweler.
