What about gemstones and precious metals? If the gold has any other components, especially precious metals or gemstones, be sure to ask if they’ve been included in the price. Local ct gold buyers will often pay for quality gemstones included in broken jewelry. On the other hand, many internet and TV-based gold buyers will not pay extra, or will even deduct their weight from the gold weight when determining how much to pay you for the gold. In this case, you’d want to remove the stones before selling your gold.
Most mail-in used gold buyers will not consider the design or maker of the piece when computing its value. Pawn shops and jewelers, on the other hand, may decide to pay you based on the design of the jewelry, as they can resell it as-is rather than sending it away to be melted down into solid gold. The same goes for old gold coins – the value may lie in the coins themselves, not in their gold content. Ideally, you want to work with ct gold buyers who can recognize such pieces, point them out to you, and be willing to pay you a premium for them, although if you’re absolutely sure you don’t have any designer pieces, whether they are able to do this won’t matter for you.
