3 Easy Ways to Get Money by Selling Jewelry

2018-03-30

If you’re interested in selling your jewelry, you’re probably wondering how you can get the most money for your items. When it comes to selling gold jewelry in Atlanta, you have different options available to you. You can sell the pieces you have for the intrinsic gold value, you can sell them online, or you can sell them to a jeweler or pawnbroker.

Jewelry 1

Regardless of which option you choose, you want to do some prep work first. It’s best to clean up your items to make them look their best. For that, you’ll want to use specific jewelry cleaners to prevent damaging your gold. Next, it’s time to do your research to make sure you know what you’re selling. After all, buying and selling jewelry is all about the value of each piece.

Scrap Value

Every piece of gold has at least some scrap value, which is the intrinsic value of the gold itself. When you sell gold for scrap, the buyer may melt the gold for other uses. Selling gold for scrap only make sense if you’re not dealing with specially designed jewelry or very valuable pieces. You should know that every piece of gold has some intrinsic value, provided it was made with real gold. However, the price per ounce will depend on the quality of the gold. Therefore, it’s best to separate your gold by karat value.

Sell Online

While it’s not the easiest or fastest way to sell jewelry, you may be able to find a buyer for your items online. Whether you take advantage of online yard sale sites or auction sites, you may not be able to maximize your profits. For one, it can be difficult to figure out how much people are willing to pay for your gold jewelry, which is why you could price your items too high or too low initially. Additionally, you must remember to include shipping costs in your calculations to make sure the sale is worth the effort to you. Alternatively, you can ask the buyer to pay extra for shipping.

Jeweler or Pawnbroker

If you want to sell your jewelry in person, a jeweler or pawnbroker is the best place to go. They have the experience to value your items and will give you cash on the spot. They may also offer you store credit in exchange for your jewelry, too. If you want to be sure that you’re getting a fair offer, you can always take your jewelry to more than one place and compare directly.
