They will only get the meltdown value of the weight of the gold or silver. No one seems to care about the stones in the jewelry, or quality of workmanship. I have two gold rings and a gorgeous cameo, both belonged to my mother O”H. 30 – 40 years ago, they cost a nice amount, but today, I am told no one cares about the large smoky topaz, or the black onyx with a centered opal. Only the gold part is of value, the rest would be tossed. Those rigns and cameo were appraised by a reputable jeweler for a nice sum, but even he said he could only offer it on consignment for a week. The gold store to whom I showed the pieces, offered me a FRACTION of their original worth, and that was just for the gold part.August 11, 2011 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #796892
speaking of watches, this person has watches to sell too and was given really low ball prices
i really wish there was some place to go to that would be legit or even take the stuff from her on consignment. feel free to post if you know anyAugust 12, 2011 1:51 am at 1:51 am #796893commonsenseParticipant

Peopple need to relize that the price of gold is for 100% pure gold (24k) but the averege piece of jewlery is only 585/1000 gold (14k) and then they only pay for the velue of raw gold.August 12, 2011 3:05 am at 3:05 am #796895JD2Member
