There could be several reasons why one decides to sell gold. From quick cash to unused jewellery, selling gold can be quite a task. But here are a few tips to keep in mind while selling your gold:
1. MAKE A LIST OF PRODUCTS YOU CHOOSE TO SELL:
Carefully evaluate all the gold you wish to sell. Don’t act on impulse and think through the things you wish to sell, especially the ones with an emotional value.
2. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SELLING:
Check all the pieces you wish to sell. Sort them by labels like 10k, 14k, 18k, etc. Put them in separate ziplock bags so the experts can get to work as soon as you bring them to a store. Try and weigh every piece of jewellery you wish to sell.
3. NOW ALL YOU NEED IS A TRUSTED BUYER:
A store like Barry’s Jewellers is perfect if you are looking to sell gold. Why? Sometimes reselling a product is not just about the money. You also need to find someone who you can trust and who can finish the task at the earliest for you. Something simple like Google reviews can give you an idea of whether the store is trustworthy. There are two reasons an industry expert will buy a product from you – because it is a good bargain or they are looking to resell it at a profit. Either way, make sure this is someone you can trust. Word of mouth is a great way to approach a store. If you have good reviews about the store from your friends and family, then this is a store that you can trust without any hesitation.
4. GET YOUR APPRAISALS:
Estate jewellery always has a lot more value than what it seems like. And what better than a store like BArry’s Jewellers that values estate and is always taking a step towards recycled products, environment, and ethical, conflict-free jewellery. At Barry’s Jewellers we value appraisals and pay for your gold accordingly. In fact, if you wish to get your gold appraised to know its exact value, we also conduct appraisal clinics that can help you value your products.
Finally, we would suggest that you be ready to sell that piece of jewellery. Several times, the piece of jewellery has had a special place in your heart. You need to mentally prepare yourself to no longer have it. While the piece might have represented something important to you at some point in time, it is time you realize the worth of it and whether you need it in your life.
