If you are looking to sell your gold jewellery, there are a few things that you need to consider. Primarily, you need to think how much you would want for your jewellery. The problem sometimes is that your sentimental value is not a realistic valuation of your jewellery. When selling gold jewellery, or any jewellery for that matter, it is essential that you deal with a company that has a stellar reputation for openness and honesty. Of course, if you keep your jewellery in good condition, you may be able to get a better price for it when you sell it. Below are a few tips on how to keep your jewels sparkling to sell them for the best price.
Keep your jewellery clean. Cleaning your jewellery after use will keep it looking new and elegant for years and years. You may also want to consider having them professionally cleaned by a jeweller of good repute. Furthermore, you need to protect your jewels and gems from the elements. Leaving them lying around will definitely not keep them looking as pristine as when you first bought them. Further, having family heirlooms thoroughly cleaned upon receiving them will give them new life. This is also the case with that favourite ring, tennis bracelet or pendant.
Placing your jewels in a jewellery case is the best way to go. Ideally, you want to store your jewels in low humidity and out of direct sunlight. Indeed, keeping them in a safe is sometimes a prerequisite for them to be properly insured. There are many jewellery safes on the market. Look for one that can be bolted into the wall or floor with multiple compartments for storing multiple different pieces. Ideally, you need to place separate pieces in jewellery bags and add anti-tarnish strips to the bags or to the jewellery case. This will keep them looking splendid for longer. This is also important when traveling to prevent your pieces from scratching.
All of these tips will keep your jewels looking better for longer so that you may get a good price for them when you want to sell them. Whatever the reason behind the sale, when you sell your gold jewellery, make sure that you do business with a reputable company. It is much safer to take your piece in to a trusted name in the jewellery trade and receive peace of mind that you made a good deal, and that no one tried to hoodwink you into selling off priceless heirlooms for a fraction of their true value.
