With the time for gift-giving right around the corner, eBay, one of the largest luxury watch and jewelry marketplaces in the world, is where you can find that perfect piece for friends and family. Whether it’s a one-of-a-kind gemstone or a classic watch, eBay has an amazing selection of luxury goods for you to browse, from top brands to unique, rare pieces.
To help you save valuable time during this holiday shopping season, eBay has created a quick guide with eight tips on purchasing jewelry and watches on its marketplace.
1. Refine Your Search
Start your search by browsing eBay’s jewelry and watch pages, which feature items by some of eBay’s most trusted sellers. Use filters on the left-hand side of the page to narrow your search by style, price, and brands, including David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, Rolex, Omega, and Patek Philippe.
2. Use eBay Authenticate
Check out the tens of thousands of high-end gemstones like diamonds and wristwatches—such as Rolex, Omega and Breitling—that have been rigorously verified by independent experts through eBay’s Authenticate program. The authenticated jewelry and watches are all marked with an “Authenticity Verified” label.
3. Find Great Value
Discover savings on fine jewelry and watches on eBay’s Daily Deals page. Featured items have been curated and vetted by an eBay team and are typically between 20% and 90% off—all with free shipping. The page is updated at least once a day, so keep checking back! Find deals for key brands such as David Yurman or diamond earrings, and see more products on sale on eBay’s fashion events page.
4. Save Searches and Sign Up for Alerts
In the market for a specific bauble or watch? You can save your search and receive an email alert when new items that match your search are listed. The site also has a watch list, where you can bookmark items to keep track of.
5. Use Photo Search to Shop
Discover what’s on eBay by snapping a photo of what you’d like to purchase. eBay recently debuted its new image search feature on its app. Tap the camera icon next to the search bar, and upload a photo of an item you’d like to buy, which will quickly pull up current listings that are a close match.
6. Know the Shopping Options on eBay
The majority of eBay listings are available for purchase through the Buy It Now feature, meaning no bidding is required. Other listings may offer the Buy It Now option along with a chance to place your best offer on an item. For auctions, you can add the item to your watch list or save it to get updates to stay up-to-date on bidding.
7. EBay has you Covered With Its Money Back Guarantee
For extra peace of mind and guaranteed protection on luxury items, eBay also offers shoppers a money back guarantee, where you’ll get a refund if you don’t receive your item or it isn’t as described in the original listing.
8. Discover Items Available for Faster Shipping
For items you need quickly, you can search eBay by toggling your view to the guaranteed 3-day delivery option, which will showcase items that are guaranteed to arrive in three or fewer days.
