Tips for selling gold jewelry, silver, or platinum:

1.) Find Reputable Local Gold Buyers.  Reputation is important for local gold buyers.  They want to earn your repeat business and to generate positive word of mouth marketing in their communities.

2.) Avoid Online Companies and Gold Parties.  Don't mail your valuables to anybody.  Companies that require you to mail your precious metals often pay far less than local places.  While reputable gold buyers will give you a free appraisal and pay you cash on the spot, mail-in companies often require waiting weeks to receive a quote and longer to receive your money.  Gold parties and companies that set-up temporary operations have little incentive to treat you fairly.  After all, they won’t be around long and don’t have a reputation to protect once they’re gone. 

3.) Know the Current Market Prices. Prices of precious metals fluctuate daily and by the minute. There are many resources online like, where one may find the minute by minute market prices. Arm yourself with this knowledge so that you can sell your valuables when prices are at their highest.

4.) Do Your Homework. Know what your items are worth. This includes knowing what karat your jewelry is and how much it weighs. Knowing your gold jewelry's karat and weight will allow you to calculate the melt value of your items and will give you an idea of how much money to expect when selling gold jewelry. Also, do not let gold buyers weigh different karat items together.  Make sure your items are separated karat.  Remember, the higher the karat, the higher the purity.

5.) Be Reasonable. Understand that no stores will offer you the melt value for your items. Gold buyers typically sell the gold they purchase from customers to refiners for a percentage of the melt value. In order to remain profitable, most gold buyers will offer you somewhere between 40%-70% of the final value. It is important to keep this in mind and not expect the full melt value for your items as you shop around. After all, gold buyers have to pay rent, employees and many other overhead expenses in order to make it possible to purchase your items.

6.) Ask About the Testing Procedures. Acid testing is the most reliable and accurate form of testing, and will help assure that you're getting a fair appraisal for your items. Electronic testers often inaccurate and can misidentify the karat value of your jewelry. This can result in getting a lower valuation for your items when selling gold.

7.) Shop Around. If you’re not sure you are getting a good offer, shop around.  Since most gold buyers will offer you 40%-70% of the melt value, it is important to shop around and get a second opinion before you decide who to sell your items to.  To search for multiple gold buyers and the best place to sell gold visit our gold buyers directory.

8.) Negotiate. If you feel your items are worth more than you’ve been offered, don't be afraid to negotiate a little bit - you'll never know if you don't ask. Most gold buyers will be willing to negotiate. To help your chances, don't hesitate to mention you have shopped around and use your previous offers as a launching point.

9.) Ask About Certifications. It is important that any gold exchange that you're dealing with use the proper equipment, has accurate scales, and is accurately assessing the karat and weight of your items. Certifications often require verification of the accuracy of the equipment, testing procedures, and valuation methods used by retail stores.  Most states or cities require a license or permit.  Also look for EZ Gold Exchange Certification or other reputable types of certification.
