Stolen jewelry is difficult to unload for anything close to the declared loss (ie insurance) value.
Very good @The Murricane , awesome insight thanks!Stolen jewelry is difficult to unload for anything close to the declared loss (ie insurance) value.
If it’s custom or vintage high end it’s likely been gem printed so easily identifiable as being stolen. And even if it hasn’t been gem stones, especially diamonds, are priced artificially high because it’s a relatively closed market dominated by a few wholesalers (used to be just De Beers, they’re still significant but there are a few others now). This makes them a shit investment or something to fence. The gold or other precious metal on the other hand is better since there’s real value regardless of its form (ie as jewelry or better yet melted down as bouillon).
Makes sense. The joint looked more like a hole in the wall than a shop with decent securityYeah if its high end shit its all traceable.
But the chances of it being high end shit are slim to none.
