Selling Your Jewelry For Cash

Posted on August 4th, 2016 by JoeG

When you need a little extra cash, sorting through your old jewelry collection could be a beneficial place to start. There are several different ways to sell your jewelry, but the best way is to sell your jewelry to a brick and mortar gold buyer in Chicago. Selling online or to out of state buyers can seem convenient but seeing the the complete process in person is a more secure and controlled way to sell your valuables. When you sell to a professional jewelry buyer in Chicago like Chicago Gold Gallery they have the expertise to help you get the best value when you sell.


Preparing Your Jewelry For Sale
Many people who sell online will clean their jewelry in preparation for sale. Cleaning your jewelry to restore its sparkle does not make it more profitable. In fact, the wrong cleaning methods could damage and even destroy some jewelry. The best cleaning tip before selling your jewelry is to not clean your items. Leave the cleaning to the professionals.


Getting The Best Value For Your Jewelry
Before you have your heart set on a certain price, it is important to ground your expectations. You may have an heirloom diamond necklace that belonged to an ancestor, emotionally and nostalgically making it worth a more to you. The actual amount you’ll get for your jewelry depends on a lot of different variables, including maker, designer, company, era, beauty, rarity, and the materials that they comprise. A professional jewelry buyer in Chicago will be able to provide you with the most accurate price for your piece.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
