7. Shop At Consignment Stores
If you want to physically see the jewelry before you buy it, consignment stores, such as Tokio 7 in New York City, are your go-to spots. Most of these retailers have staff members who are knowledgeable and can answer your questions.
The vintage jewelry you find at consignment shops are most likely going to be pricier than what you might spot at thrift stores. The upside is they're almost always authentic.
