Understand Karat Value

Gold is an extremely malleable material, which means it needs to be mixed with some kind of alloy to create strong jewelry. The amount of pure gold in a piece is classified in karats. One karat is the same as 1/24 parts pure gold. If a piece has 14 karats, for example, it is comprised of 14 parts pure gold and 10 parts another metal.

Bring In Unwanted Pieces

Since gold manages to consistently retain its value, jewelry stores are always interested in buying it. Whether you have a bracelet, earrings, rings, a chain, dental fillings, coins, charms, nuggets, or pendants, you can bring your unwanted pieces to a gold buyer. If the items are valuable, the gold buyer will probably be interested in purchasing them.

Sell Broken Pieces

Since most buyers melt down gold pieces to shape them into something else, they are often interested in buying broken pieces. Even if you have a necklace that no longer closes or a ring that is missing a prong, the gold buyer might still be interested in buying what you have to sell.

Find a Reputable Buyer

The most important aspect of selling your unwanted gold is finding a reputable buyer. Look for a jewelry store with a good reputation in your community so you can be sure that you are getting the best price when you sell your gold.
