Many people have jewelry they never wear and are considering selling it on the gold market. The good news is that this is a great idea. With that said, it’s important to do your research and not just sell it to the first buyer. Here are some tips for how to get the most for the gold you own. 

Look Into Each Buyer
It’s important to do a background check about each company you are considering selling to. Are they certified? Are they insured? You can always investigate each company more on the Better Business Bureau website. 

Get An Appraisal
Make sure to have your own appraisal done by an independent person or company. The appraiser should be insured in case anything is stolen during your time with them. You can find a reputable business through the American Society of Appraisers. 

Having your jewelry appraised will help you know if a company is giving you a fair amount for your jewelry. Remember, the amount the appraiser gives you is probably not the amount you will end up getting for it. However, it should be relatively close. 

You can even consult a few appraisers if you have multiple items. That way you’ll know exactly how much it is all worth. 

Look At Prices
Although you don’t necessarily want to go with the best price just because it’s the best price, it should be one of the factors in your decision. It’s one of the main reasons why you’re selling, after all. 

The market will fluctuate regularly. Because of this, you want to try and time the sale in your favor. There are different websites out there that can help you with the current trends going on.  As long as you don’t need the money immediately, it pays to wait for a better price.

Keep An Eye Out For Scammers
If you are looking to get rid of your gold quickly, make sure you still get a couple of different options and do research. Although you may need the money right away, you might get scammed and miss out on lots of money. 

There are many people out there that can tell when someone wants to do business quickly and get rid of their gold fast. These people will offer you a much lower price than it is worth. Be aware of these types of people and know exactly what you want in exchange for your gold. 

Remain Confident
Make sure you don’t get pushed around by salespeople. This is your jewelry and you deserve to get a fair price for it. It’s okay to say no to any seller for any reason. Find someone that you feel comfortable doing business with.
