Important Bidding Strategies for individuals to use at Government Auctions

Bidding strategies are a dime a dozen
Government Auctions Bidding Strategies from GovernmentAuctions.org®
The deals you find at any live government auction of seized or surplus property would undoubtedly astonish most of the public. You could save a great deal of money on a wide variety of assets. But where do you start? How you increase your chances of getting items you want for a really discounted price? What strategies can you use to increase your chances of coming away with a great deal? 
Here are some important bidding strategies to keep in mind:
  1. Set a limit and stick to it
This rule is vital information if you want to win items at a substantial discount. First, scout out the item(s) that you intend to bid on with the aid of GovernmentAuctions.org® listings. Then do proper price research to figure out what an item’s value is (with the aid of used merchandise price guides at GovernmentAuctions.org®), and use it to set a maximum bid you’ll be willing to make for that item. Hint: set your maximum bid at at least 20% less than the value of the item, and don’t bid even remotely more than your max. This rule is single-handedly the most important directive you should follow come auction day. Keep your maximum bid always in mind, so you don’t catch auction fever and overbid. You can use GovernmentAuctions.org® to see some recent government auction sale prices. 
  1. Don’t let the auctioneer do the bidding for you
When soliciting bids for a particular item, the auctioneer will frequently suggest bids like, “Do I hear $500?” or “Can I get $750?”  If you think that is the lowest you can bid…it’s not. The auctioneer will try to control the flow of the auction this way, but don’t ever feel compelled to give into the auctioneer's suggested. If you are not comfortable bidding as much as is asked for, bid whatever you feel is appropriate. So, lets say the current bid on a flat screen TV is $400, and the auctioneer yells, “Can I get 800?” You can easily raise you bidder number, and yell “$450.” In other words, don’t let the auctioneer do the bidding for you. 
  1. Try to bid on items in the beginning and end of the auction
Statistically, items that come up in the beginning and end of auctions tend to have lower bids for various reasons. “Why?" you ask. Well, many bidders come late and many others leave early. Moreover, many bidders have exhausted their funds by the end, and so there is less competition. This doesn’t mean you should avoid the items that come up in the middle of an auction if those are the items you wish to acquire. A corollary here is that you yourself should get to the auction on time (and stay till the end) to take advantage of these opportunities.  GovernmentAuctions.org® lists the starting times of the auctions, so you can use it to plan your early arrival.

  1. How to bid against professionals
A lot of times you will see professionals – such as used car dealers, jewelers, and others – bidding. You might be inclined to think that bidding against them would damper your odds at snagging a good deal. In fact, the opposite is true. Non-professionals are generally the folks that drive up prices, especially ones that have no clue as to the value of the item they are bidding on. Professionals, on the other hand, have usually done their legwork, and you can sometimes use their expertise to your advantage.
A professional or dealer obviously knows the value of the item that he is bidding on. Often the dealer will drop out of the bidding at a certain point because the price has gone too high in his estimation. What you need to realize is that the dealer typically sets his maximum bid by discounting from it the profit he wishes to make on the resale. This means that once a professional feels like he won’t make the desired profit, he’ll drop out of the bidding. This may give you a chance to offer just a small amount more, and -- if you are the top bidder at that time -- you may walk away with a bargain. It is imperative, though, that, when employing this strategy, you still never go above your own maximum bid.

10 Most Expensive Diamond Jewelry Brands

Passion by Diamonds USA - craftsmanship sinceJewelry has always been a part of mankind’s history and remains to be so in the present. In the earlier times, jewelry was meant to indicate social status, familial roots, and significance. Today, people wear jewelry for a variety of reasons. Some sport it to add zing to their fashion ensemble. Others rock a couple of bracelets and a matching necklace to express their individuality. Of course, many wear jewelry to profess their love and passion, such as engagement and wedding bands. That said, not all jewelry pieces are made for everyone. For the elite few, only jewelry that exudes elegance and extravagance will do. This list ranks the 10 most extravagant jewelry brands in the world. A few names may sound familiar to the average person. But only a few can afford the names featured in this list. Check them out.
 10. Chopard Aside from making luxury Swiss watches, the house of Chopard is also known for its luxurious jewelry collection. Only using the finest materials for their pieces, Chopard’s line of everyday jewelry is crafted using thick layers of 18-karat gold and precious stones of the highest grade. Not only that, Chopard is very keen on detail and precision, which add more value to their already expensive line of products.
9. Mikimoto Mikimoto’s founder, Kokichi Mikimoto, is not just known for his collection, but also for the fact that he invented and propagated the use of cultured pearls in crafting jewelry pieces. Mikimoto’s collection only selects the finest pearls which include South Sea pearls, pink conch pearls, Tahitian pearls, white pearls, and other rare specimens. On top of that, Mikimoto’s jewelry line only uses 18k gold and platinum for the metal components as well as top grade diamonds. Only the finest silk threads are used for jewelries that have pearl strings. 8. Bvlgari Bvlgari is no doubt a well known brand of luxury items, from fashion to watches to jewelry. And when it comes to the latter, this Rome-based brand combines elegance and extravagance very well and without losing its penchant for traditions. Even today, Bvlagri’s collection still flaunts the house’s signature features including large gemstones for centerpieces, bold shapes, and the use of cabochon stones (a tradition that dates back to the 1960’s Italian glamour). Aside from the best gemstones, Bvlgari only uses 18-karat gold for its collection.
7. Piaget Another familiar name for the average person, Piaget initially started as a watchmaking company in the Swiss part of the Jura. As the business grew, the business soon ventured into jewelry and excelled in it, crafting luxurious items for those who can afford the price the company demands for their pieces. Today, Piaget takes pride in combining Old World concepts and their modern designs, which now feature sleek lines and bold angles. But its most famous look is the Rose, which has become Piaget’s signature design.

6. Graff Graff is a top of the line brand that is very popular particularly among the rich and the elite. What makes Graff’s collection special is not just the craftsmanship or the quality of the gemstones and metals used to create expensive pieces. Rather, it’s the size of the stones Graff uses in its jewelry line. They are huge and Graff’s founder, Laurence Graff, likes it that way.
5. Tiffany & Co. Even the masses know that Tiffany is a huge luxury name when it comes to jewelry, mainly because their line includes pieces that are wearable day in and day out, whatever the occasion. Their extensive collection is not only limited to women, as Tiffany also caters to men and children as well. Producing classic designs since starting its operations in 1837, Tiffany’s creations are made by expert artisans. And those categorized as ultra luxurious often take years to complete.
4. Buccellati Buccellati celebrates its Roman roots by creating elegant jewelry items from the best Italian gold. The Rome-based jewelry company produced Roman inspired designs and incorporated them in their collection. Roman styled necklaces and bracelet cuffs are just some of their best sellers. Buccellati also takes pride in coming up with certain designs that give their jewelry a very appealing look, like brushing and mattifying metals and heavy encrustation using high quality gemstones and diamonds.
3. Van Cleef & Arpels Van Cleef & Arpels was formed when Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef decided to make their collaboration a permanent arrangement. While most of its collections show the type of elegance found in Old World items, it has other lines of items that exude its own style and class. The house presents a huge collection that fuses tradition and narrative style with technical expertise.
2. Cartier Another household name in the list, Cartier is a name that has been around for ages. Founded in 1860, Cartier has been the go to jeweller for royals who wanted to have a personalized collection. The panther is Cartier’s most recognizable design, which has been modified and re-conceptualized every now and then to appeal to the ever changing tastes of their customers. Cartier is known for its adherence to its Art-Deco history but creates several lines that celebrate the Old World elegance as well.
1. Harry Winston A name that resonates in the jewelry business, Harry Winston started his business in 1932 and has been on the top ever since. Using only the best gemstones and the finest metals, Harry Winston’s collection are fashioned only by the masters of jewelry craftsmanship. Not only are the items from the house of Harry Winston elegant and extravagant, they are durable as well and can easily pass the test of time. Diamonds-USA Love Shines
