Sell Broken Jewelry
You may be asking, “Why should I sell my broken jewelry?” It is not an uncommon question, especially given the multitude of media ads that offer clients quick cash for selling broken jewelry in these difficult financial times. The fact is that many of these advertisements do not specify the benefits or ease of selling broken jewelry and consumers are often left wondering what the benefits are to them. This article is intended to assist with those concerns.
To begin with, selling your broken jewelry provides you with an added source of money that can ease the financial burdens associated with unexpected expenses, purchasing items that you need or want, and even being capable of placing some money aside for later use. Additionally, for some people who have been impacted through job loss or a loss in wages, selling broken jewelry can provide an immediate source of income to take care of essential living needs.
For example, Jan, a single mother of three, was capable of selling her old and broken jewelry to assist with the purchase of school uniforms that were a new addition to the school policy in the fall. This unexpected expense was causing Jan to try and decide whether to buy food or purchase the uniforms. However, when she learned that she could sell her old and broken jewelry, she was capable of finding an alternative that allowed her to feed her children and provide the necessary uniforms that were required for her kids.
But you should be aware that there are numerous companies that offer services in relation to purchasing old or broken jewelry on television, online and in print. So one of the most important decisions that you can make in regard to selling your broken jewelry or selling broken gold jewelry is selecting a company that you can trust, that offers a relentless commitment to customer service, that has resources available 24/7, and that strives to educate its customers about the business of buying and selling broken jewelry.
Ask yourself, “What do I plan to do with the old and/or broken jewelry that I have?” If the answer is something similar to letting in sit in the depths of the jewelry box or drawer indefinitely, then you have yet another reason to consider selling your broken jewelry. After all, it is not being used and will probably not be used in the future. This is especially true of pieces that might have been given as gifts and that are not, shall we say, pleasing to the eye. Or perhaps the jewelry requires repairs and the repairs to the jewelry are too expensive, and/or there is no sentimental value attached to the piece. If any of these factors apply to your old or broken jewelry, then selling it will put it to use in a way that will finally benefit you.
What kinds of jewelry can you sell? Traditionally when people choose to sell their broken gold jewelry, they can mail earrings, bracelets, lockets, class rings, chains and old, unattractive pieces of jewelry. Cash4Gold does not recommend sending expensive time pieces or antique jewelry, as the jewelry will be melted in the refining process. If the customer wishes to sell broken gold jewelry that is still functional, or that has a high cash value upon resale, then Cash4Gold recommends using the services of EstateBuyer.com.
Broken Jewelry Value
How is the value of jewelry determined by a refiner? The refiner is concerned with the weight of the gold, platinum, or silver that can be extracted from the piece of jewelry being sold. This means that the settings, beauty or lack of it and/or sentimental value of the piece are not considered by the refiner. The weight of the extracted gold, platinum, or silver is then calculated based on the present market value and an offer is made for the purchase of the item. If you have a $50 bracelet, for example, that has only a minimal amount of gold in it; the value may be only $10. The refiner would potentially make an offer of $8 for this piece.
Another reason you might want to consider selling your old or broken jewelry is that the process is quite safe. A reputable company will mail a return pack to the consumer upon request. Our Refiner’s Return Pak is pre-addressed, pre-insured, (up to $100) and postage paid. A Refiner’s Return Pak is generally delivered in an armored truck and taken into the high security facility. The items are then matched with the shipping list in the package, photographed, weighed and tested. If the item has no value, it is returned to the customer upon request, or discarded. Once the value of the item(s) is determined, a check for the amount owed to the customer is cut the same day and mailed out. When the customer accepts the payment, the transaction is concluded. This process ensures that whatever items the customer is attempting to sell are protected and that the transaction is completed with peace of mind.
So, why should you sell your old or broken jewelry? There is no reason not to. Over the last few years, the process of mail order refining has been developed into a safe and secure method of exchanging goods for cash, and through the course of time, it has been capable of benefiting millions. Those who are struggling to pay their expenses, challenged by job loss or a decrease in wages, or those that simply need spare cash from time to time have been capable of altering their financial situations in a positive and simple fashion by selling their broken jewelry. Furthermore, those that have been burying their broken jewelry in a box or drawer for years have the potential to rid themselves of the clutter and be rewarded for doing so.
