Cash For Gold Turns Old Jewelry Into New Money
By: Vanscoy Diamonds
It doesn’t matter how old we get. The excitement of new Christmas presents never goes away. What does change as we get more mature is the realization that there isn’t room for everything in our homes, not without getting rid of some of our old stuff first. It’s easy to get rid of clothes no longer in style and appliances that don’t work, but what about the old gold jewelry we don’t wear anymore, or the broken necklace that Santa replaced with a new one this year? There’s a market for all of it, and the money you can get these days as a “cash for gold” trade-in has never been better.

The thought of sending something so valuable to a post office box and trusting that it will get there and the money will come back is too much of a risk for them to take. Thankfully, they don’t have to anymore. Not when local jewelry stores are now offering cash for gold, thanks to the high demand internationally for gold. It’s important to recognize that this isn’t the same thing as taking the jewelry to a pawn shop. A pawn dealer is nothing more than a middle man. The amount of money they will pay out for gold jewelry, even pieces that are in pristine condition, is only a fraction of what it is actually worth, because they want to be able to make money on it when they sell it to another customer. At a jewelry store, the money that they are going to offer when you bring your jewelry in to get cash for gold is what gold is trading for that day. There is no hidden fee and no percentage withheld for administrative charges. You get what it’s worth and not a penny less. So make room for the new jewelry by getting cash for gold for the old jewelry, and then use the money to buy yourself the gift you really wanted but didn’t get.
