Selling Gold & Silver
There are a variety of methods used for selling your old gold and silver. While there are some people who choose to send their items to buyers who advertise online or on television, many decide to sell them to a local buyer. And then there are those who choose to sell to a well-known jeweler such as Raymond Lee.When you sell your old jewelry to a local jeweler, chances are you will get your money much sooner — sometimes right when you receive the offer. Many of them will test your jewelry’s gold or silver content right there. But it’s always best to have your jewelry appraised before bringing them in to sell them. Though the process sounds simple enough, an article on selling your gold states that there are hundreds of complaints are filed each year with The Better Business Bureau against gold, silver and platinum dealers. This is because some companies send a check before you agree to their price. While others assume that you agree if you don’t respond quickly enough. And then there are some who don’t send the jewelry back or pay you.

Just like selling your old gold and silver there are many methods used for selling your old watches. What’s important is that you know exactly what you have on your hands, how much it’s of value, and how much you’re willing to let it go for. We love to buy old watches to add to our collection.
Unlike old jewelry, you should never sell your watches online. You should always have them appraised and taken to your local jeweler or someone you can trust for resale. A lot of places online claim to buy your pre-owned watches for top dollar when they really pay less than your investment cost.
Be cautious of using places like eBay or other auction sites to sell your old watches. Unless you know exactly how much your watch is worth and how much money you’re willing to accept for it, you should always have it appraised and taken to your local jeweler.
In our next article, we will discuss how you can sell us your pre-owned watches to us with ease.
