    We Want Your Old Jewelry! 

    Posted on April 3rd, 2018 by Joe G

    Broken, unused, modern, antique. We don’t discriminate when it comes to the type of jewelry you’re selling. As jewelry buyers in Chicago, we will gladly pay top dollar for your valuable estate and signed jewelry as well. If you’re trying to decide whether or not your jewelry is worth anything, it can be a little indecisive. To help you decide just bring your items into the best jewelry buyers in Chicago at Chicago Gold Gallery and we will inspect and evaluate your items free of charge!  Our experts look for Hallmarks and official markings stamped onto various parts of a piece of jewelry. Some are very difficult to see and find but we have all the tools and equipment and knowledge to locate them.


    Stampings and markings certify the content of noble metals like platinum, gold, palladium and silver. Other hallmarks on your jewelry may also refer to the country of origin, designer or manufacturer. While there are many various hallmarks all with different meanings, the fact that your jewelry even has a hallmark is a good sign, but unfortunately all good jewelry does not always have markings due to many reasons like, it was sized and the jeweler took of the part of the ring that had the marking, or it was polished by a careless jewelry repair person ( and there are many out there) that  buffed so hard that they erased the marking or stamp. 


    Our jewelry buyers in Chicago can do all of this for you, for scrap gold and broken pieces we will weigh your item first and determine and give you an idea of the intrinsic value, but if you have signed, estate and designer jewelry will we always pay more and our jewelry buyers in Chicago know what to look for. While we primarily want solid gold, platinum, palladium and silver jewelry, some costume jewelry can be valuable, but more than likely costume jewelry may not be worth that much but bring it along if it is older for us to evaluate, you may have a winner in there.  If you have jewelry in your drawers, jewelry box or items that you do not wear any longer, bring it into the Chicago Gold Gallery today! Our experienced jewelry buyers in Chicago are always seeking to pay you cash for your high-end jewelry as well as your old unwanted and broken jewelry.

    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.
