Paying top dollar

for your diamonds since 1980

What do you have that is gold that you can turn into Cash?

Posted on August 10th, 2020 by Joe G

Right now with the price of gold at all time highs, you may be thinking, “What do I have in gold that I can sell and cash in to capitalize while the price of gold is so high?” You may think some things you have are only costume jewelry but it pays to take another look to see if what you have can be worth hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars. You can go through your old jewelry and check, you may have broken or mismatched items, or items that you no longer wear or use or that do not have sentimental value.

Items And Markings

Anything from wedding bands, class rings, watches, bracelets, necklaces, chains , bangles , earrings are all valuable no matter what the karat gold is. Most gold will be 10k .417, 14k .585 18k .750 but there is also 9k .375 21k, 22k, 24k ( see chart) , and don’t forget to double check what you may think is only silver as it can be Platinum or Palladium. There are other markings that can actually show 18k but have the letters H.G.E. after it , that stands for Heavy Gold Electroplate ; those items are not gold , there are markings that will have a fraction like 1/20th 14k they are worth something but not anywhere near what plumb or solid gold is worth.

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.
