Buying & Selling Jewelry : How to Sell Used Gold Jewelry


Hi I’m Judy Carrier with Jewels by Park Lane
and I’m going to talk to you about how to sell used gold jewelries. Well first of all,
clean it. You don’t want it to look used, you want it to look like something someone
would want, you know. So they have to be able to see the luster and the sheen of the gold.
Unless of course they’re just buying for an investment. In that case make sure you have
it weighed. You need to know the carat weight because that is the most important thing to
an investor; because of course, jewelry is sold by weight. And the higher the carat,
the pure the gold and that brings the higher prices. Now, you can advertise in a newspaper
that you have pieces to sell. You can send out fliers. You can go to flea markets, you’re
not going to make as much at a flea market as you would if you sold on an auction or
eBay or something like that. But it’s usually an instant sell. Or you can go to a pawn broker
and a pawn broker of course, it’s not going to give you as much either but you have cash
on hand. The best way I think is go to a local jeweler. See if they’ll sell it for you on
consignment and he’ll take a maybe ten to fifteen percent commission. And of course
he will do an appraisal for you. Now that’s one of the first things you need to sell your
jewelry, your used gold jewelry because you have to make sure it’s documented. That’s
one of the easiest ways to selling used gold jewelry, I’m Judy Carrier with Jewels by Park

  1. Hi Judy… I'm looking for a silver bracelet by Park Lane that has Crystal cross and heart charms, do you happen to know the name of that bracelet or have one for sale?

  2. Did you get the URL right? In any case, try googling GoldStratz. That's where the secret sauce is 🙂
