Tips for Selling Gold, Silver and Diamond Jewelry
Thinking of getting rid of seldom-worn or outdated jewelry pieces? Many reputable jewelers are also buyers of gold, silver, and diamonds and will pay money for your unwanted jewelry. If you’re unsure about the process or how to receive the best deal, take a look at the following tips:
- Know the quality of your pieces. Check your gold jewelry for karats and know that the amount of pure gold is measured in karats, so jewelry with higher “k” numbers contains more pure gold than lower karat pieces. As far as silver jewelry goes, sterling silver is common and can be valuable. Look for a quality-indicating stamp and research the value before trying to sell.
- Insist that jewelry be measured separately. Some buyers may try to weigh your jewelry in one group and pay according to the less valuable pieces. Ask for each piece to be weighed one at a time.
- Shop around. Mail-in services may not be your best bet as you will usually pay for the convenience of not going to an actual store. You may end up with more money in your pocket if you take the time to visit a few stores in your area and compare quotes.
- Research market value. Take a few minutes to find out how much gold, silver, and diamonds are selling for before you present your pieces to a jeweler. This is a good strategy that can help set reasonable expectations and gauge whether or not a buyer’s price is too low.
