I buy and sell gold for a living. Cash for gold is an OK way to sell your gold and they do pay OK money. However, why not go to a pawn shop and support the local economy?? They will pay you just as much if not more, and you will get your money today not in 2 weeks or more. With cash for gold you are selling to some stranger who is making hundreds of thousands of dollars every week. Support small business.
No offense hon, but the stones are almost completely worthless. Diamond chips are worthless, and 80% of birth stones are man made junk. Even if you have a genuine natural emrald its not worth very much at all. I suggest you take some pliers and pop the stones out and keep them yourself. Thats what the pawn shop is going to do anyway.
Cash for gold WILL scratch your jewelry and leave a small mark on it. They may also burn it with acid, so if you dont like their price your stuck with a scratched or burnt ring with no monies.
Also, cash for gold is only interested in gold. If you bought a diamond ring from a jewelry store who ripped you off selling you a 1/4carat diamond with 2.5g 14k gold for $900, cash for gold would offer you $35 for it. How nice. A pawn shop would give you more
Support small business whether its with your gold, pizza, watch or anything els. Its often cheaper and you get more info on your product. Buying an Ipod from walmart you wontk now the first thing about it. A pawn broker will tell you every single thing about it
Good luck and God bless
