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.
