Most of the news has been negative lately. But there is a ray of light for jewelry owners who want to sell their little worn jewelry or broken and damaged chains. Gold prices have reached more than $1940 per troy ounce, an increase of more than 27 percent in 2020 alone.
Jewelry appraiser and Graduate Gemologist Ben Gordon reports he is now seeing more clients interested in learning what their items are worth if they should need to sell to raise money in these challenging financial times.
Mr. Gordon, explains, “we weigh and test for the purity.” Purity is commonly known as 10K, 14K or 18K. “24K, pure gold, is mostly found in coins, he adds.”
Much of the gold that is sold ends up in the melting pot somewhere, but Mr. Gordon tells his clients if there is something of extraordinary value that should be rescued or perhaps even sold at auction or directly to a jewelry dealer.
It is certainly worthwhile so spend a few dollars ($$) to learn who will pay the best price to a seller. Especially when that seller could potentially receive thousands of dollars ($$$$) for their tangled jewelry.
“Know what you should expect as a fair price, before you sell,” the Jewelry Judge recommends. “And be aware of current gold pricing. We’re here to help achieve the best outcome for our clients.”
