    Selling Your Jewelry For Cash

    Posted on August 4th, 2016 by Joe G

    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 have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
