Selling your old jewelry

SILVERTIP will purchase any amount of old or scrap gold jewelry.  If this is the first time you're looking to sell used jewelry, you'll need to understand that the value of used jewelry is far less than the new retail market..... way less.  I have heard from many people who have purchased a ring from a retail jewelry store, then tried to return it only one month later.  They are very shocked and upset that most of the time, that they can't get even 1/10 of what they paid for it.  Then, is when they find out that the markup on new jewelry is often over 10 times it's true value in the real world.  That is why the value of jewelry is determined based on the gold content, not on what a jewelry store would sell it for new.  From Silvertip Gold, you can expect between 20% and 40% more than what a retail jewelry store will offer you for it.  Call or text to see how you can get the most out of your gold jewelry.


To give you some idea of what price you can expect to get for your scrap gold, here's some examples.  An average men's ring that is 10K and a wide band, currently runs between $75 and $125.  

An average Lady's wedding ring that is 14k and is a narrow band, will bring between $45 and $150.  

If the ring contains a diamond that is larger than a half carat, and is a newer cut style, it will be worth more than the gold value, and the price will be determined after it is viewed in person.  But if the diamond is smaller or is an old cut style, the market value for those are very low, and you'll only get the gold value for the weight of it.  If you believe that the diamond is worth a lot, it's recommended to keep the diamond(s) for your collection.

If you're selling several pieces of scrap jewelry, you'll receive a higher price point per gram than you would if you were selling just one piece, but keep in mind, extra precautions will be taken to ensure the items are clear and free of any illegal activity.

I look forward to meeting with you, and if you would like to set up and appointment to see how much your items are worth, please call or text Gary at 306-491-1917
