Better Business Bureau tips for Selling Gold Jewelry & Coins



The BBB offers tips for consumers to understand the value of your Jewelry & Coins:

Keep up with the price of gold. Know how much gold is going for on the day you sell. Understand that you won’t get the full price for your gold, because you’re selling to a dealer who then will re-sell the items to be melted down.

Know the karat weight of your gold items. Jewelry and other items aren’t pure gold, but a mix of gold and other metals. The karat weight tells how much gold is in the item. Something marked 10K is about 42% gold; 14K is about 58% gold; and 18K is about 75% gold. The more gold in the item, the more you will be offered for it.  For items that may be especially valuable, consider getting a professional appraisal. You will have to pay for the appraisal, but you will gain important information. Rock N Gold Creations offers complimentary verbal estimates of the value of your items.

Some gold items might be worth more when sold as they are, rather than to be melted down. If that gold necklace or bracelet comes from a notable designer or maker, it might have a value to some buyers beyond the gold it’s made of.  Rock N Gold Creations has an A+ rating.

    I love your tip to know what the price of gold is on the day you’re planning to sell, and to keep up with it as it fluctuates. I imagine it would be a good idea to establish a relationship with a specific gold buyer so they could keep you up to date on market trends. My wife inherited lots of old jewelry from her grandmother that we have been thinking of selling, so I’ll run your thoughts by her. Thanks!

    Thanks for the tips for selling gold. My wife is thinking of selling some of her jewelry for some extra money this Christmas. I don’t think she knows the karat of her gold, so we will get that checked!
