Selling Old and Unworn Jewelry for Cash

Trying to sell your jewelry? It turns out you have a lot of different options to consider. From selling to local companies to finding an online buyer, making cash off your extra, unwanted jewelry has never been easier. 

What Jewelry to Sell

The following is a list of items you can potentially sell as used or for scrap:

  • Watches
  • Rings
  • Earrings
  • Necklaces
  • Bracelets

The main thing to keep in mind is that if these items are made from any precious metal (gold, silver, platinum, etc.), then they’ll have some inherent worth in just the material alone. 

Where to Sell Your Jewelry

If you’ve found that your jewelry box is full of pieces you don’t wear and likely never will again, it might be time to clean it out. But don’t throw it all away—first sift through it and see if there are any pieces you might be able to sell. 

There are a few places you can trust to buy up your used jewelry and exchange it for cash or, in some cases, in-store credit, making it highly worthwhile to sort through the jewelry you have and find the pieces that might be worth something. 

Step one in the selling process is to get an appraisal. You can go to professional appraisal companies for such an appraisal, but be aware that it will cost you a bit to have your jewelry appraised by them. It’s also possible that the places you’re selling your jewelry to will be able to appraise it.

Once you’ve decided on getting an appraisal or not, the next step will be to take your items to the locations where you can sell them, including:

  • Local Jewelry Stores
  • Local Cash for Gold Stores
  • Pawn Shops

Each of these locations will have its own methods for buying used or old jewelry. Something to keep in mind is that many buyers will consider the jewelry you’re offering as scrap—items that can be melted down and used to make other pieces. Appraisers in-store or at their own company will be able to decide if the piece is better sold as-is or as scrap. 

Selling Jewelry Online

Selling jewelry online is becoming increasingly popular. Take time to thoroughly screen potential buyers before jumping right into a sale offer. You might want to consider finding a company that offers reputable online jewelry appraisals and that can also purchase your jewelry.
