How to sell your gold jewellery online

When it comes to selling silver and gold jewellery, you have many options. You can sell to friends or family or go to a pawn shop. However, with internet usage so heavily prevalent today, many individuals are opting to sell their jewellery online. From auction sites to gold dealers, you have options to get the most money for your old jewellery.

Online Auction Sites

If you wish to offload your jewellery based on the value of the piece overall, an online auction site is best. You can create an account at such sites as eBay or Etsy and sell your jewellery items as you tire of them. But be aware. You may not get as much money as you would if you were selling jewellery in Kitchener based on gold or silver value. This option is strictly for selling based on the jewellery piece. You also have to consider the shipping fees involved and this may cut in on your profit margin.

Online Gold/Silver Dealer

Another way, and perhaps the best option, is to sell to a gold and silver dealer online. A dealer can specialize in gold coins, bullion, jewellery and more so that you have an easy way to have your items appraised. You simply email a list of the items for a quote or mail the pieces to the dealer for information. Sometimes, you can call the dealer and talk to them about your items to get a better idea as to how much you could receive for your pieces.

This type of sale is for the gold and silver content of the pieces. This will be the best choice if you have high value gold and silver, such items with 10, 14, 18 or 24 karat gold. The dealer is paying you for the gold or silver content, so they will be willing to pay much more if the piece is a higher value.

If you are planning on mailing items into to the dealer, you want to be sure they are reputable and have a good track record for paying for pieces as well as giving top dollar for collections. Never send your jewellery to a dealer who has a bad rating with the Better Business Bureau or other organizations. When you choose a reputable dealer, you know that your pieces are safe and there is no obligation to sell. You will receive your jewellery items back if you choose not to sell based on the quote given by the dealer.

These are just two options for selling your jewellery online. It is recommended that you inspect your pieces and have an appraisal completed so that you know the value of what you have before selling.
