Re: Is it worth it to turn in your jewelery you don't want anymore?

2 questions...

my dd did study abroad and i found a handful of foreign coins, could i take those to a gold/silver buyers place?

where would i go to sell a diamond ring? i don't want to remove diamonds.

The coins I'd take to a coin dealer but truthfully, unless they are extremely old, they probably are not worth much.

As for a diamond ring, unless the diamond is large or there is a substantial amount of gold or platinum in the setting, resell on diamond rings is not great. Sometimes you are better selling it to a local jeweler on a contingency basis.

the coins aren't old, she just brought them home and i'd have to go to a downtown bank, for any kind of redemption. not worth it, in the long run.

the ring is nice but not mega rocks. i didn't think of jewelery contingency. i'll look in to that.

thanks.

I sold nearly all of my gold to pay for dental work. I received $5,200 for it, but I had a whole lot of it. There were several pieces in that lot that I should have kept because they were in perfect condition and extremely beautiful. One was a very thick and long snake chain with a pendant on it in gold with a gorgeous white cameo on an aqua blue background. I doubt that piece was melted down. I'm sure it was sold as a jewelry piece. I had other pieces that were probably sold as is also. It bothers me because I think I got much less than I should have.

My girls don't wear gold, however, and I did need the money. I don't think anyone ever knows what the gold is really worth that they sell. I used an agent to sell it and he said he sold it to the highest bidder on Philadelphia's Jewelry Row. I think I received about half of what it was worth.

But oh well. I got my teeth done (which now have to be done again because of all new problems). :-(
