We Want Your Old Jewelry! 

Posted on April 3rd, 2018 by JoeG

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 drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

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 large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

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.
