Pendant Impulse BuyPendant Impulse Buy

This 925 sterling Rensouhou-chan pendant from Cospa isn't in our database, but sold out at pretty much all the main Japan-based sites I could remember to check off the top of my head. I just got that last one, which was 20% off as part of CDJapan's clearance sale.

I am aware that I most likely got a good deal on this at just under $105 (after tracked standard shipping), but I was wondering if it'd ever sell on something like ebay later on if I could use some extra cash - I wouldn't wear it.

Thoughts? Am I 'safe' impulse buy-wise at ¥11,900 ($104.16 today)? I ask because I know that, like myself, most US-based buyers aren't extremely keen on imported anime jewlery - isn't as popular over here.

aweofshe (hace 3 años) #2529584It's a really cute necklace! I looked up the bootleg but alas...it lacks the charm of the original. :( *i'll probably buy it anyway lol*
Not sure if these types of items sell on the aftermarket. I own 5 or so 925 sterling silver video game related jewelry pieces and purchased them knowing full well I probably wouldn't be able to get back what I put in, but I was ok with that because I don't plan to sell. You could check on ebay and see if anything comes up on the already sold listings to gauge the market. The only popular jewelry piece I know of is the FFXIII Serah necklace which seems to consistently sell for above retail value (even the bootleg is $250+ =-=).
Like you said, it was a good buy either way. I got it for less than pretty much anyone else and I'm thinking about keeping it just because of its charm. It'd be weird to wear something like this though, especially since it has cannons on its head, lol.

Muntoe (hace 3 años) #2525491If you like it and will wear it regularly then I say it was a good buy :) I think it's really cute because it doesn't scream anime/game related and it's a good conversation starter haha. I'm also allergic to nickel so I'm biased toward more expensive jewelry...
There could be a market out there for reselling your necklace but since Kancolle is pretty unknown to most people it could be difficult if you were really in trouble and needed the cash immediately.
Especially since the game is in kanji. I'm glad you agree on it being a nice piece, though. Cospa generally makes quality gear, and if I didn't love the look of it, I wouldn't have bought it.

JoniVera (hace 3 años) #2525426To be honest, no. There are bootlegs of that necklace. You could try though.That's not my concern. I'm happy to have gotten such a good deal on the real one, which also looks better. That being said, I do agree it'd be hard to sell on ebay. My only chance is a Global Shipping Program listing, where supposedly more buyers see our listings.

bertychen (hace 3 años) #2525280my thoughts..
it's not popular in my country too, especially with the custom tax on jewerly nearly cost as high as the item.
and the item material is silver which we know along time will change colour and quality.
for me the item is very pricey considering you can get real gold at jewerly store with the same price.
but if you really want it, that's another story :)
for the if you sell something like that on ebay.. i'm not really sure, but i always ignore jewerly because i thought i will never wear them because i'm afraid they will lose their shiny quality after some time.
I usually ignore jewlery as well.
