Will the Economy EVER get better?! Its been a couple of years now and we still see how difficult it is for people to get by at this difficult time. We have faith that it will improve and it will be better for everyone. We are doing everything we can to help people get the most cash for gold when clients want to sell gold jewelry to cover the bills. Selling gold jewelry is a great way to help the family through this financial crisis by capitalizing on an under-used asset-old or broken gold jewelry.
When it is time to dig into the jewelry box to sell gold jewelry for cash, there are some things you need to know about the gold cash exchange and how to get cash for gold that makes sense for you. As an educated retail buyer, you probably do comparative pricing for products. In the gold buying world, it's a bit more difficult because there is less advertising to enable you to compare prices without going all over town to various gold buying shops. However, an easy way to do your gold price comparisons is to check out websites that publish their cash gold rates which allows you to compare the price of gold. If you are selling gold, you should also know the price of gold for that current day. To sell gold, there are great gold reference sites like Kitco.com that publish the current market price of gold.
This site will give you the current price of gold for the current day and guidance for the future trend of the price of gold. Of course you also need to know the quality of the gold when selling gold jewelry. You must compare the same piece on each site or store. If for example, you have a 14k gold necklace, you need to also know its weight in grams or pennyweights. Sites that allow you to convert from gram to pennyweight can be trusted because they aren't using the pennyweight conversion to confuse the sale. Once you know your gold content (i.e. 14k is 585 parts of 1000 of pure gold), you need to understand that this is not 24K gold (1000 parts of 1000) but a lesser portion of gold. The gold will be weighed and valued based on its gold content. The gold buyer will also weigh and test the content of the gold through the use of various gold testing methods. The most common gold testing method is an acid test that allows the gold buyer to determine, 1) if the piece is real gold or a fake, and 2) the content of the gold in the piece, i.e. 10k, 14k, 18k or 22k. These karat weights are often found as decimals in gold jewelry made outside of the United States. The comparable marks are .417 for 10k, .585 for 14k, and .750 for 18k.
For gold buyer websites with a solid reputation, you can trust that they will properly test, weigh and evaluate your gold. Thus, many people send in their gold to trusted sites in a jumbled heap of gold and costume jewelry straight out of the jewelry box. This leaves the job of sorting and evaluating the gold and non-gold to the gold buyer. It's a lot more work to sort the gold from the non-gold, but this is an easy way to simply get it done and have someone else handle the messy work. We always offer this service as an option to our customers and they seem to appreciate the effort as it is a free service.
In the gold buying business, it comes down to trust and customer service. Everyone wants cash for gold quickly, but you need to be a smart seller. If you know your gold buyer then you will have a much higher chance of successfully getting the most cash when you sell gold jewelry. Be smart and find a gold buyer that you can trust. It takes all the worry out of the process!
