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

Posted on August 10th, 2020 by JoeG

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 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.
