Selling Your Gold & Jewelry to Round Hill Jewelers
At Round Hill Jewelers, we pay cash for your old jewelry or gold or if you prefer, we can trade the old jewelry in for something you like better.
The gold content of jewelry is indicated in karats. Solid gold jewelry is 24 karats. Lesser jewelry has less gold content and more of other metals and hardening agents. At Round Hill Jewelers, we will only pay for gold. With few exceptions, other metals have no resale value.
Generally, the gold content of any piece of jewelry will be marked on it somewhere — on the inside of a ring or bracelet and on the clip of a necklace or the back of an earring. For instance, a 14-karat piece of jewelry may actually have “14 karat” inscribed on it in tiny lettering or the lettering may say “14/24” or “14K.”
The less gold content in a piece of jewelry, the less money it will be worth. When you buy jewelry in the store, you are paying for the design and craftsmanship, as well as any precious and semi-precious stones that may be a part of the piece. A beautifully designed piece of jewelry may have more resale value as used or “estate” jewelry than it will have as recycled gold. If you think that might be the case, get the piece appraised at Round Hill Jewelers.
