Sell Gold & Silver Jewelry in the Chicago Suburbs
Jewelry is — by far — the most popular thing my customers sell. At DMK Metal, our customers can sell gold and silver jewelry that is unwanted or broken. With gold at such a high price, it only takes a small amount of gold to get to a value of $1,000 or much more.
Many people have broken or kinked necklaces, old rings with stones missing, rings that no longer fit, single earrings, outdated or inherited items, or other jewelry they no longer want or use. These items are often stored away in junk drawers, jewelry boxes, bags, old purses, and other places around the house.
Before you sell gold and silver jewelry pieces, I meet with my customers to review any jewelry they might want to sell, evaluate it, separate it by karat in different piles, weigh the items, and then purchase the items they decide to sell based on the current spot prices of gold and silver.
My clients are normally surprised that they can get thousands of dollars when they sell their jewelry.
With gold, the karat tells you what percentage of the item is gold. This is why it is important to organize items by karat and weigh them separately. If you’d like to know the karat on your rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, charms, broaches, pins, and other types of jewelry, look for:
9k or the number 375
10k or the number 417
14k or the number 585
18k or the number 750
22k or the number 917
24k or the number 999
If you’re looking to sell silver jewelry, it’s most likely sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver. Look for the word sterling or the number 925 on your silver items. That’s how you’ll know if you have something of value to sell.
If you believe you have valuable jewelry to sell and you’re looking for a trustworthy silver or gold jewelry–buyer in the Chicagoland area, I’d be happy to help!
