If you're unsure what your gold might be worth, then have an appraisal done. Although appraisals cost money, you will know the value of your items. Make sure that you get a truly realistic value from an appraiser that is accredited. If you do want to sell the gold, understand you won't be offered full value it was appraised for.

 

Watch out for "pop-up" buyers. These individuals travel from place to place, putting out advertisements that lure in sellers with the promise of a big payout. In many cases, these buyers then leave town without paying the sellers what they are owed. Always do your research on anyone you are planning to sell to.

 

Purchasing gold at retail values can be expensive and unaffordable at times. Pawn shops and consignment stores often carry a variety of gold pieces. This gold is second hand, which makes it more affordable than purchasing it in a retail store. Visit different shops until you find the perfect gold piece for you.

 

Look at the World Gold Counsel website before buying from an online dealer. This site lists reputable dealers who you can trust working with. Buying from someone else could result in you being scammed, because there are many dishonest gold dealers out there. Do your homework first to make sure you remain protected.

 

Be very careful when buying gold off of the Internet, you never know who it is you are actually dealing with. You may be thinking you are getting gold from a reputable dealer, and the person you are dealing with is a scam artist that is only after your financial information.

 

Know what you are selling. For example, a 14 karat gold necklace may be worth by selling it as a necklace rather than selling it based on the selling price of gold. If you have a lot of broken jewelry, you may make more money selling it for the price of gold than selling it as jewelry.

 

When it comes to selling gold jewelry, you should know exactly what it is that you are selling. Many pieces are worth more when they're left as is rather than melted down. If your pieces come from famous makers or designer lines, they may carry more value for the buyer over what kind of gold they're made of.

 

When buying gold jewelry online, make sure to get written confirmation of your delivery date before finalizing the deal. Ideally, delivery should take place in a very short period of time. If it will be delayed, find out why and for how long. This protects you as the consumer, and it gives you information that would stand up in court if necessary.
