    I'm attending the Barrett Jackson event on Jan 13 and heard that a company selling "preloved" jewelry will be participating. The company is Biltmore Lux. Haven't tried purchasing preloved jewelry before. Anything I should look out for?

    Thin shanks, cracks in shanks, and wonky prongs if you're looking for semi-mounts!

    I am a fan of "pre-loved" jewelry. I've personalized several with new gemstones and settings (esp. Stuller findings). My local jeweler can fix minor defects in pre-owned and vintage pieces.
