3 Tips For Selling Gems, Freehold, New Jersey

 From the dawn of time, gemstones have been associated with luxury, royalty, and even spirituality.  Often being seen in jewelry and adornments, gemstones have popped up in civilizations around the globe, with the most rare and precious fetching millions of dollars per carat!  Follow the 3 tips below by American Coins & Gold when it comes time to sell your gems and get the most cash guala guala.

  1. Find Your Gemstones

Gemstones can be found in many different jewelry pieces that could be gathering dust in your drawer right now.  They also are often passed down through generations through antique & estate jewelry.  Once you have found some potentially valuable gemstones, you can begin some research online to get a rough idea of what you are working with. 

  1. Real Vs. Fake Gem Stones?

Gemstones in jewelry can be colorful, romantic, and connected with personal feelings.  This can make you think your gemstone in the jeweimagelry is worth much more than it is.  It could even be a synthetic gemstone and to the untrained eye you could have overlooked.  The only true way to understand what kind of gem you have is to get an appraisal from a trusted jewelry store or gemstone buyer.

  1. Decide Your Selling Method

You can go one of two ways here.  The first way is to sell your gemstone or jewelry with gemstones in it by posting it online.  Whether that be Craigslist, Facebook, or Instagram, it is always the easiest method.  While you might get some cash from a quick flip, too many times you never get the full value of your gemstones.  The second method consists of bringing your gemstone into a local & trusted gemstone buyer.  All gemstone buyers and jewelry stores should offer you a free no obligation appraisal on all of your valuables.  This is the best way to go because you get a fair estimate from a professional, rather than that random person from social media.
