Selling Your Gold
What kinds of gold should I sell?
As the gold price continues its upward climb, many are wondering what their scrap gold is worth and where they can find a good gold buyer that will pay them handsomely for it. Scrap gold is any broken or unwanted piece of gold jewelry that the owner doesn’t wear anymore.
For example, yellow gold necklaces have a tendency to get twisted until they can’t be worn anymore. Many women have lost a mate to their earring set, causing them to throw the set in the back of the drawer and forget about it. Or perhaps a little figure or statue?
When companies buy scrap gold, what’s important is the amount of real gold that a piece contains. They typically don’t care what kind of shape the piece is in, whether it’s broken, missing pieces or is tarnished shouldn’t be important. These items can be: Broken Jewelry, Chains / Necklaces, Lockets and Pendants, Watches, Earrings, Bracelets, Charms, Rings, Brooches, Pins, and Cufflinks, Gold / Silver Coins, Dental Gold, Silverware (stamped Sterling Silver), Gold / Silver Bars, etc.
The amount on money that we will offer you for your scrap gold depends on how much actual gold your piece(s) contain. We will test your piece to find out what karat gold your piece contains, for example, 14k, 18k, 24k, and how much weight of that gold there is. These different numbers of karats is how much gold is in each pieces; the higher the number, the more pure gold within the piece and therefore the more it is worth based on how much gold it has.
If you have old jewelry that is made of gold that you no longer want, and wish to sell it, be sure to remove any stones or anything that is non-gold that you would still like to keep. Scrap gold buyers typically do not buy precious or semi-precious stones and therefore you will only be given a cash offer for the gold portion of your piece.
Selling scrap gold is a great way to get some great cash that you would rather have instead of your unwanted scrap gold, especially now while gold prices are at an all time high and holding on.
