3 Steps to Sell Gold With Gemstones

Most people know that any gold jewelry can be sold off for its precious metal content value quite easily these days through a local cash for gold dealer. A solid piece of gold jewelry can fetch a price well beyond its aesthetic appeal due to the precious metal content or its “melt” value.

One question we get asked fairly often is whether we can purchase jewelry that has gems, and how much we pay for them. While we can purchase any type of gold, whether it has gems or not, we can actually offer a higher price for jewelry with diamonds. For other gemstones we simply deduct their weight from the total weight of the item, and can often remove the gems if you are interested in keeping them. (Scroll past the video to read further)

Small diamonds have very little value on the market, so we simply include them in the gold weight, but for diamonds over 1/4 carat, we can set up an appointment with our GIA Certified Gemologist, Rachel, and make an offer on the diamond separately.

Here are some simple steps to get cash for gold on your jewelry with gems:

  1. Determine the type of gem; if it’s a diamond, it can be added to the price of the item, if not it will be deducted from the weight.
  2. If you have a diamond we measure its size, if it’s larger than 1/4 carat, we can set up an appointment in our Vancouver or Surrey office to have it evaluated by our gemologist.
  3. We determine the precious metal content by deducting the weight of the gem and multiplying by the current market price of gold.

It’s as simple as that! Any gold or silver item can be sold through our stores, and if you’re lucky enough to have jewelry with a nice sized diamond, then we can make you an offer on that too.

Please contact us to set up an appointment if you have a diamond, or simply stop by your nearest location for an on-the-spot no obligation quote.

New Gold For Bills Program Announced Today

Vancouver Gold announces new “Gold for Bills” program
For Immediate Release
January 9, 2013

Vancouver, BC – Vancouver Gold today announced a unique program in the cash-for-gold market called “Gold for Bills”. Designed to help Canadians pay off their holiday bills, customers can use the value from their gold jewellery to pay off any debt through a 10% bonus credited directly to their billing company.

Individuals can bring in any type of bill and their unwanted gold jewellery to any one of the company’s locations to receive the bonus. While the program requires that the bonus be credited directly towards a bill, customers may choose to have any amount, up to the full value of their payout also credited to their bill.

With Statistics Canada’s announcement that Canadian household debt has risen to record-highs, up to 165% of annual disposable income (Statscan – Dec 13, 2012), it’s clear that many people will have trouble paying off their holiday bills.

Cashing in old gold jewellery has always been a popular way to pay off bills, says Charlie Pollock, CEO of Vancouver Gold; while Gold for Bills helps to make the process easier and even more profitable for those customers.

The Gold For Bills promotion runs from today until January 31, 2013 and cannot be combined with any other offers.
