Where is the best place to sell my Gold and Silver Jewellery?
When you want to sell your Gold, Silver or Platinum jewellery including rings, bracelets, chains etc you can either sell it to your local jeweller or a company like the Birmingham Gold Company..
You should be aware that specialized gold and silver bullion dealers like ourselves can pay up to 3 times more for your jewellery items than some local jewellers, antique dealers and gold shops.

Nearly always secondhand gold and silver jewellery is referred to as scrap because in the main customers want to buy new items of jewellery, unscratched, unworn, and unmarked. You might have a silver item you think is too good to be scrapped There are items of silver that are worth more than just scrap. We will pay more than our published scrap prices for certain items, but be aware that our scrap price is higher than most antique dealers want to pay for items. They want to buy it for less than scrap so that if they cannot sell it as an antique they will scrap it with companies like ourselves. The word scrap is unfortunate. It means metal price and scrap metal silver price has been and still is very high. Its thanks to companies like us that The Public has finally been achieving a fair price for their silver . Often as not the scrap price, based on weight is higher than the item would be worth as an antique.
Please also bear in mind antique silver is not particularly in demand anymore, the younger generations show little interest and yet a valuable silver antique will command a high price . The item will be rare, collectable and sought after by dealers . In oher word it wll be something special and unique.
If the gold or silver item you think is worth more than its scrap weight is in demand as a gold/silver item and does not have dints, dings, scratches, gouges dents or general wear we may be interested in buying it for more than scrap . If it has age and the hallmarks (it should have some type of hallmark) are undamaged we will be more interested and if the item is not engraved we would be yet more keen to offer more than scrap If its a coin then the same applies.
Remember most gold/silver items are worth more for their scrap weight/price than their antique value.Get a price from your local antique dealer first if in doubt.
