The internet is a great place to sell your gold jewelery. Whether you have a stash of old, broken gold pieces or newer jewelery items, sites on the internet will be helpful when it comes to selling your gold.

There are lots of different sites to consider. e-Bay, of course, is one of the largest buy/sell sites around. However you will be tied to a bidding system whereby the customer has the final say when it comes to a price to be paid for your precious gold. If you have 10, 14, 18 or even 22k/24k jewelery pieces such as rings or earrings, you will probably realize an excellent price via on line bidding. But for scrap gold, such as broken chains, or one earring (missing a mate) or any other broken gold jewelery, you will probably be better off selling it via a scrap gold buyer. Again, you can find buyers on the internet. They are all different, though, and pay varying prices per ounce. So you will have to do some research in order to find the right buyer.

To sell your gold jewelery on the internet, you should have a rough idea of what your pieces are worth. Do your research and ask the right questions. Check with pawn shops to see what they will offer for your gold jewelery. More than likely you will realize a much higher price by selling on the internet than selling to a pawn shop or even to an individual buyer. Another way to come up with a value is to check with gold dealers in your area. They can give you a good estimate of what your cache is worth.

Make sure that the jewelery you are attempting to sell is really gold, not gold plated. Gold plate will not sell well on the internet or elsewhere. Buyers today are looking for the real thing as gold is considered a valuable investment in today’s financial climate. When selling through the internet, make sure that you have photographs ready to download so that the prospective buyer can view what it is that he/she is purchasing.Using the internet is a smart and often very profitable avenue. If you do your research, you should be able to find buyers willing to pay a good price for your scrap or whole gold jewelery. Don’t be tempted by the first offer; always check with several sites, or buyers, prior to making a deal. After all, you are doing this to make some money, not lose it. And it will be worth your while to take your time when deciding who to sell to.

My sincere thanks for Emily to sharing her thought in this blog.
