How to Get the Best Deal Selling Gold

Do you have old jewelry that you no longer wear?  You’re not alone.  Many people keep jewelry that they’re no longer interested in simply because they don’t know what to do with it.  But there’s no reason to keep something you no longer use.  If you have jewelry you no longer use, you should consider selling gold.  There are many places in Atlanta to sell gold, including The Gold ATM.  Here’s how to get the best possible deal when selling gold.

Make sure you’re selling the right jewelry.

It’s possible to sell almost any piece of jewelry, but just because you can sell something doesn’t mean you should.  If you have a piece of jewelry that you no longer wear, but that has substantial sentimental value, you might want to keep it.  Even if you can get an excellent price for jewelry, you don’t want to have any regrets. Make sure only to sell gold that you know you won’t miss.

Do Your Research and Get Your Jewelry Appraised

If you want to get a good deal selling gold, you’ll need to make an informed decision about which pieces of jewelry to sell, and which offers to accept. First, look online to check the price of gold.  Then, get your jewelry appraised.  All legitimate and reputable gold buyers should appraise your jewelry for free—if they don’t, you shouldn’t sell to them.  Once getting the appraisal, you can either accept or decline that price.  If you think another buyer might offer you a better price, you can shop around.

Find the best Buyer

Different buyers will give you various offers, so you’ll want to find a suitable buyer.  All reputable gold buyers will be a part of the Better Business Bureau.  Additionally, you should check to see if they’re a part of any jewelry trade associations—for example, Jewelers of America.  These trade associations hold business to specific ethical standards.  If you see that a business is a part of one of these organizations, that’s a good sign that you’ll be treated fairly.

Keep track of what you’re selling.

Before getting your jewelry appraised, take photos, and write down everything you’re planning on selling.  Although it’s rare, a piece of jewelry can get lost or damaged.  If you document everything, you’ll be protected in case anything goes wrong.  You should be able to be reimbursed in case of damage or loss—but check the business’s reimbursement policy first.
