Clear Out Drawers and Boxes
Styles and fashion trends come and go, which means that all of that old jewelry sitting in a jewelry box or random junk drawer is just money waiting to be made. Unfortunately, there are many scams out there today seeking to take advantage of people just trying to clean out valuable, but unwanted, pieces of jewelry. A reputable service will always give you a fair price for these. The value of gold has gone up in recent years, so all of those old items that were purchased or acquired years ago are now more valuable than they were brand new.
Start by going through dresser drawers, jewelry boxes, and storage boxes in closets to see what items you may have to sell off for cash. You just may be surprised with how many items you have forgotten about over the years. Holding on to old, outdated styles is not doing you any favors. You can turn all of those outdated styles into cash. They may be more valuable than you think.
Get Money for Unwanted Jewelry
The first thing for anyone to do when looking to sell old jewelry pieces is to go through boxes, drawers, and closets. Find pieces that are made of gold, or may contain gold. There are certain markings that you can look for on each piece that will indicate the karat (quality) amount. The higher the amount, the more valuable a piece may be, depending on the size and weight. Many times, the marking will be found on the inside of a bracelet, band, or necklace chain. They also may be attached by a tiny piece near the clasp.
Check for Distinctive Markings and Karat Indications
Pieces that have no markings on them are likely to simply be gold plated, and not particularly valuable. Those items can simply be set aside, as it will not be worthwhile to send them in for an evaluation. If pieces include gemstones, you may choose to remove the stones from their settings and keep them. Alternatively you can sell them for cash, so leaving them attached can bring you some more money, if you choose. We will appraise and evaluate any gemstones you send us and let you know their worth.
