How to Sell Gold Earrings

selling gold earrings

Are you wondering how to sell gold earrings? The best way is through trusted jewellers. 

In this blog we’ll outline the best way to sell gold earrings in three simple steps, so you can get the fairest price for them.


Step 1: Try to determine their basic worth

It’s good to have an idea of what your jewellery is worth before you try to sell it. This will ensure you get the quote that you deserve. 

If you’re looking to sell gold earrings, you should determine if they are worth more than just their ‘melt value’. This is something you can work out without the help of a professional. Although, it’s still important to get your jewellery looked at by a professional in the next step, but for other reasons.

Melt value is simply the worth of your jewellery, purely in terms of its gold content – what it’s worth when melted down. A pair of earrings may be worth more than its melt value if they are from sought after designers, or vintage/antique. 

Step 2: Get your gold earrings professionally evaluated 

Before you sell gold jewellery, it’s good practice to get it professionally evaluated. Selling your gold as quickly as possible may be tempting- but taking that extra step and having it appraised can help ensure you get the best possible price for your pieces.

A professional appraisal will provide you with an even more accurate understanding of the value of your gold earrings, based on factors such as the weight of your gold, purity of your pieces and the current market value. 

Armed with this extra information, you can confidently negotiate and sell your gold for a fair price, which reflects its worth. So, before you sell gold jewellery, don’t skip the step of getting it evaluated!

Step 3: Choose a trusted jeweller to sell gold earrings to

It’s essential to choose a trusted jeweller when looking to sell gold in order to make sure you get the best possible deal. A reputable jeweller will be knowledgeable about your gold’s current market value. They will offer you the fairest price, based on the purity and weight of your earrings. They will be transparent and honest throughout the selling process. 

However, a dishonest dealer may undervalue your earrings, or even misrepresent the purity of the metal. 

Thus, it’s crucial that you do your research and choose a jeweller with a good reputation and history of fair business practises when you want to sell gold earrings.
