Think about all those pieces of jewelry you have that you don’t need or want anymore: a necklace you never wear, a bracelet that was given to you that brings back bad memories, a ring you inherited that you don’t particularly care for… and then there’s the wedding and/or engagement rings. You might also have gold coins, scrap gold, or even gold dentistry (an old filling). But are you wondering how to sell it? Where the best place to sell jewelry online is? How to do it safely and get the most money? Even where to begin?

Beware. There are many untrustworthy places to sell jewelry online.

Then there’s Cash for Gold USA, a legitimate online gold and jewelry buyer with an A rating from the Better Business Bureau. Cash for Gold USA also pays higher than its competitors.

How do I know? Because I personally sold jewelry online to Cash for Gold USA and it was a great experience!

Cash for Gold USA has been in business for over 15 years and has paid out over $50 Million to 250,000 customers. They pay cash for gold, silver, precious metals, stones, broken gold jewelry, diamond rings, gold watches, scrap gold, gold coins, sterling silver and more.

If you have been thinking about selling your gold and jewelry, why do it now?

Because gold is worth more than $52 per gram right now (as of March 26, 2020).

To give you a sense of how much a gram weighs, a nickel is 5 grams. A tiny nickel’s worth of 24k gold would be worth more than $260.00 USD. it’s an excellent time to take advantage of the market. Plus, it’s easy to do, it’s safe and an entirely private transaction.

Gold prices have surged by more than 30% over the past 12 months. Historically, when the stock market suffers, prices of gold rise.

The best place to sell jewelry online starts with my story. During this tough time, with lots of time on my hands, I decided to declutter my home.

I do want to add something about selling your wedding rings. The decision to sell your wedding rings isn’t always an easy one. It has to be the right time and it has to feel right. If it doesn’t, you should wait.

That said, there are so many financial benefits to selling your rings and other jewelry. Just remember that it’s YOUR decision. No one can tell you what to do. Trust your gut. You’ll know when the right time is.

Remember, a wedding ring is only a material item. The beautiful memories you have of being a young bride in love don’t come from saving your ring. Those memories live in your heart and you never have to sell those.
