The price of gold is still high, which is why selling gold hasn’t yet gone out of style. If you are interested in earning some money by selling the gold you have or you want to part with some of your ornaments, then you need to be sure about where to take your gold.
You need to know you’re selling it somewhere that’s not going to put pressure on you to sell or to accept their offer. You should also feel comfortable with the people who are sorting through your gold, and you need to feel like you are getting a fair offer. To find people you can trust, you can always sell gold in Eureka CA at our pawn shop.
You can also go gold hunting by yourself. You can buy stuff that may contain gold and show it to pawn shops in Eureka such as ours on 4th and D streets. After examining the gold you have and how much is present, you will be given a quote. We base our offers on the up-to-the-minute gold price. In this way, you may also earn more than you bargained for.
One potential source of gold that you may not have considered is jewelry with gold that has been broken or has a piece missing. We also do jewelry repairs, but if your gold jewelry is beyond repair or you don’t intend to wear it again, we can make an offer. Some old jewelry may have gone out of style, too, so be sure you’ll actually wear this piece again.
You can always trade that jewelry for a good sum to pawn shops in Eureka. The process is simple. Search your home for all the pieces you want to sell and separate them from the junk. If you aren’t sure if something is real gold, bring it in and we’ll let you know in our evaluation. Of course, some jewelry can’t be sold or replaced, so bring in what you can part with.
When a jeweler gives you an estimate for your gold, they should weigh the gold out in front of you. If they do not, be weary and move on. Some jeweler may also weigh different karats of gold in the same place, which is unethical and gives the seller a high profit. This is because the karat of gold tells you how much of your item is made up of pure gold and how much of it is other metal. Measuring high and low karats together often favors the buyer, and the seller won’t get their fair share.
Next thing you need to do is a little bit of research. As jewelers offer different prices for the same jewelry, you must be able to go with the one that gives you more profit.
Cash for gold through the mail may be tempting, but it’s difficult to tell the scams from the real deal (and often times you can’t get an accurate quote before sending). Eureka Trading Company has been a part of the community since 1999, so you can trust that we’ll still be here if you have any questions.
