Frequently Asked Questions
When is the best time to sell my jewelry?
The best time to sell your jewelry is when gold is on the rise and when you need money for other things to make your life easier.
Why should I sell my jewelry or sterling silver?
Jewelry and sterling silver have value on the metals market. These things retain value and can be sold for the metal value unlike other things that get old and worn. Worn jewelry still has value in the gold and gemstone content and can be redeemed for money.
What is the main reason people sell their jewelry?
People sell their jewelry when they need money to pay bills, remodel, buy a car, take a vacation, pay school tuition, pay taxes, or for other reasons. Ridding yourself of sentimental feelings of past relationships and divorce is one of the main reasons people sell their jewelry.
How do I know where to go to sell my jewelry?
Ask your friends and coworkers for referrals, check the reputation of the locations and check their reviews online. Shop around. Certified and accredited people are people you can count on because they have to adhere to certain standards.
Should I sell my jewelry online?
It is always best to deal with someone across the counter where you maintain possession of it at all times.
Sending it out of town gives possession to a stranger and may cost you time, money and stress.
How are gemstones analyzed for sale?
Going to a trained Master Gemologist Appraiser, ASA or a Certified Gemologist Appraiser who can grade and identify your gemstones is your best bet. Many of them also buy jewelry. Their advice is valuable to you because they are trained to do this kind of work. Guessing by an uneducated person is not advantageous to you when you are selling jewelry.
What if the place only wants to buy the gold and not the diamonds?
DO NOT sell to those places. My customers have told me that they want the diamonds for free or they rush taking them out or may give them back in poor condition. We have seen bags of chipped diamonds that require much time to test and weigh. Keeping them in their original mountings is much better and selling both the gold and the diamonds is the best way.
Should I sell my sterling silver flatware?
If you are never going to use it and your kids do not want it, it is best to liquidate it. The sterling silver has value that can be exchanged for dollars.
Is there a market for dental gold, crowns, and bridges?
Yes. Different alloys are used to make these things and many gold buying places will make you an offer.
