Cash for Gold Jewelry Store Jewelers
The Jewelers & Loan Co. Quincy, Ma is a Cash for Gold Jewelry Store. For thousands of years, gold has been one of the most valuable forms of precious metal in the world. While gold was used as a currency for centuries, today many people are wearing this valuable, yellow metal (and sometimes white metal), right around their neck as finished gold jewelry. Most people have received or purchased gold jewelry that is sitting in the bottom of an old drawer, or collecting dust in a jewelry box or even a safety deposit box at your local bank. You may have broken bracelet, bangles, earrings, or other gold jewelry you might want to upgrade.
While gold may be more prevalent today as jewelry than it was in the past, it is still very valuable. A small amount of gold jewelry can be a hundred dollars or thousands of dollars, depending on its weight, karat purity and possible brand name premium. About half of the gold produced in the world is used to make jewelry, but around 40% of that gold is actually used in investments, because while stocks rise and fall, expire and sell out—we’ve all seen from history that gold lasts forever and has been in our history books for years. Gold prices move up and down and now is a good time to get some cash for your gold jewelry!
The history of gold; as we know it today, actually started like a gold pawn shop where there would be a lender loaning money on your gold, at a bench, who would take coin as collateral and issue credits for farming, blacksmithing, aristocrats and other occupations. At the Jewelers and Loan Co. Quincy, MA we appreciate the history of gold and think there is relevant place in the pawn shops, jewelry stores, and eventually local banks one day to utilize it efficiently into their banking services. We will talk more about gold and the future use in the pawn industry throughout the GoldPawnerShip vision.
Most Americans view a jewelry pawn shop in a negative light. We have a different vision at The Jewelers and Loan Co. Quincy, MA and so does Europe. Contrary to stereotypes of your local gold pawn shop; in France and India, your local bank acts as your local gold jewelry pawn shop where you go into a branch to borrow on your gold. Borrowing money on your gold is not viewed in a negative manner, but in a prudent way, socially acceptable, as easy access to the cash flow one needs and also part of their culture. Overseas, gold jewelry, is generally viewed as a gold investment purchased in their local denominated currency. In America, the karat of gold most commonly found is fourteen karat, 14k, or .585% pure gold, with copper, zinc, palladium, and silver alloy mixed into the jewelry for durability.
Many customers from Quincy, Boston, Milton, Dorchester, Weymouth, and the south shore of Massachusetts come to our Quincy, MA pawn shop to sell gold pieces of jewelry, or even dental gold, that they have and no longer want to use, in virtually any condition. It doesn’t matter what you bring your jewelry in, how dirty it is, or whether you bring it in an old Ziploc bag—we welcome every type of gold in our Quincy pawn shop in any condition.

Determining the Value of Your Gold for Cash
When you have gold jewelry you are considering selling for cash or a payment by check; it can be extremely difficult to determine just how much cash you will be able to get for your gold at your local pawn shop, jeweler, or gold buyer near you. Fear not, it is actually a very simple process. You are in and out in a few minutes. The heavier the better for gold and the higher the karat the better. Higher karat numbers means more percentage of gold that is pure. The most common gold is fourteen karat, 14KT. This simply mean 14 part pure gold or 58.5% pure by taking the 14kt pure divided by twenty four, 24k. The other ten part of the total 24k is sometimes copper, zinc, palladium, silver, and nickel.
Just because a gold piece of jewelry looks beautiful and is in great condition, it doesn’t necessarily indicate how valuable that piece is. Whether its gold scrap or gold jewelry, it is not as much the appearance of the piece, it’s all about the quality of the gold or the karat purity, the weight in grams, pennyweights, or troy ounces and the current spot gold price of that day and if there is a brand that is considered luxury or high end that can bring additional value along with any genuine diamonds in the gold jewelry.
At the Jewelers and Loan Company of Quincy, Massachusetts we are always happy to provide you with a free, no obligation gold jewelry appraisal that is limited by the amount of jewelry that you have, right here in our Quincy, MA office if you are considering selling your gold, silver, diamonds, coins, luxury watches, old-paper money, or silverware for cash. We want to provide a free estimate to purchase, but also if you have a lot of jewelry and it takes time to sort we do have a fee for the sorting and organizing of the jewelry of course.
However, we know many potential sellers have a number of questions about gold and its value, before they ever decide to sell and we are happy to give you a price estimate.
How do I get the most amount of cash for my gold or gold and diamond Jewelry?
Sometimes selling your jewelry to a local pawn shop or jeweler is not the best way for you to get the most amount of money for your jewelry. We recommend occasionally selling the gold jewelry or ring privately to a buyer on online reputable platforms such as Ebay, Facebook, Etsy, PoshMark, and others that might pay more than a local jeweler would otherwise pay. The most common jewelry that generally is best suited to be sold online is smaller diamonds under a half carat, finished jewelry with carat total weight of diamonds. (These are jewelry that have say, twenty diamonds that equal one carat, or five points each as they say in the diamond trade. Most customers buy a piece of jewelry for the attractiveness or style not for the resale value. When a marriage doesn’t work out or jewelry is upgraded, or a break in a relationship happens, that memory generally wants to be forgotten and the natural reaction is to sell the jewelry. When you purchase gold try to buy on purity and weight. Sometimes, if you ladies are buying a Cuban link for your gentleman; obtaining a used, second hand chain, is a prudent purchase due to its smaller premium over what the metal is actually worth intrinsically. Most customers, do not care about the intrinsic value or the re-sale value of the jewelry they purchase; its an afterthought. Quality jewelry, value jewelry, or discounted second hand jewelry are all options to a buyer of jewelry or a seller of jewelry. It might cost you more money to purchase a quality piece, but the re-sale value is higher on percentage terms. Gold plating, diamond carat total weight is also something to steer clear of. These are purchases when they do not hold much re-sale value.
Why did my gold and diamond ring at Kay Jewelers, Zales, Jared’s, Piercing Pagoda, cost so much and I cannot get anywhere near what I paid for it?
Signet is just a power player in the jewelry industry. They are extremely well diversified almost to perfection for the jewelry industry except for watch repair, custom jewelry, and maybe one day they will wake up and adopt the GoldPawnerShip vision and add this service to their customers. They have in mall locations, out of mall locations, and all across the United States. Who knows? The labor cost, the gold weight, the diamond quality, are important factors that most customers do not consider when purchasing jewelry; which directly effects the resale value of gold. Signet, which owns Kay’s, Zales and Jared. is a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange pays very high rents for the retail leases from Simon Malls to ensure their chains are in shopping malls around the world.
Payrolls and expenses are high, so they pass the cost along to the customers. Dealing with independent jewelers, generally provide a better experience than the large big box retailers with employees who have little vested interest in their company and experience. Brick & Mortar is difficult to build out, and they do an excellent job of selling large volume out of those stores and online. Although the diamond buying experience is personal and face to face that online can not replicate; there will be a consolidation in the industry for sure.
They spend millions of dollars a year on marketing to attract gold jewelry interested customers via television, online, and in store financing promotions. Most purchasers of jewelry do not think about what the resale value of their jewelry is in the United States. In other cultures, however, this is not the case. There are many more reasons why dealing with your local pawn shop or jewelry buyer is a great alternative for your gold jewelry interests.
How do I know if my jewelry is real gold?
Unfortunately, not all that glitters like gold is genuine gold. Be careful. Just because there is a stamp, does not mean its genuine gold. Even X-Ray fluorescence machines are not that accurate. There is gold-filled jewelry, gold-plated jewelry, gold mixed with copper, gold stamped, inflated karat genuine gold, the pursuit of deception goes on for alchemist’s. You have to be really careful with distinguishing genuine gold from fake gold as just a stamp on the end cap or clasp does not mean the chain or bracelet is authentic. While a piece of jewelry may look expensive or high end, it doesn’t mean that it is made of real gold. The first and easiest way is to look for a small karat mark or a manufacturer’s trademark stamped on the inside of a clasp, inside of a gold ring, on the end cap of a gold Figaro bracelet, or even a tiny mark on a gold diamond earring post. You will likely see a number stamp or 18k, 14k or 10k on your item or numbers such as 750, 417, 585, 916, 999, 375, or the word “gold plum.” Customers come in with stamped genuine gold on jewelry frequently, along with customers purchasing gold chains and gold jewelry that they said they thought was real for a “good deal” on gold they purchased from someone randomly by a friend.
Of course, we will also be happy to take a look at your gold jewelry or gold coins and determine their quality and authenticity for you right here in our Quincy, Massachusetts gold jewelry pawn shop. You can send us a text message, email a picture, or call and stop by during business hours. A small amount of gold collecting dust in a jewelry box can add up fast! Just because there is a stamp does not mean that the item is genuine gold. Be careful! We all have been on the train or approached by a great price by an unscrupulous individual to buy a seemingly great looking piece of gold jewelry. GEP is, Gold Electro Plate and GP is slightly different which is Gold Plum which is a good sign for karat purity.
What is the difference between 10k, 14k, 18k and 24k Gold?
Very simply; 10k means ten-part pure gold or 41.7% pure. 10k/24k = 41.7% 14k means fourteen-part pure gold out of 24k. 14k/24k= 58.5% pure and so on. Most people will have a general idea of what type of gold they are dealing with when they are ready to sell their old ten karat class rings, corporate gold pin, or the 70’s gold rope style chain that Mr. T used to wear along with everyone in the 50’throughearly 2000s (It is coming back in style!) So are the heavy gold Cuban link men’s chains.
If you have something that is 24k, then it is pure gold, this is the best quality gold. However, chances are, this won’t be a piece of jewelry as it is too soft to use in jewelry pieces. This is often found in India, China, Russia, Europe, South America were higher karats of gold in jewelry are more common. American gold jewelry at most is usually 10k, 14k, or 18k yellow or white gold.
Gold Jewelry that is 18k are very high in gold purity. This means they are made with 75% pure gold and other metals such as copper, zinc, palladium, and a little silver to help strengthen the piece. Simple rule; the higher the karat of gold, meaning 10k,14k,18k, 20k, 22k, and even 24k and the heavier the jewelry the more money you would receive.
An item that is 14k is 58.5% pure. This is the most popular weight for jewelry, especially American jewelry. 14k gold jewelry is what I like to say, American gold Jewelry. It is the most common and has a very high payout cash value if you have a little handful of it.
Jewelry that is 10k gold is made up with more metals than gold and is actually only 41.7% pure. Ten karat gold is most common in gold class ring jewelry manufactures, gold chains, gold earrings, and tend to be slightly darker than 14k and 18k jewelry.
My gold jewelry has a 585 stamp on it. What does that mean?
If your gold jewelry has a 585 stamp on it, then it is likely 14k gold. This stamp comes from the simple equation 14k/24k= 0.585, which is where the stamp came from.
My gold jewelry has a 417 stamp on it. What does that mean?
When a piece of gold jewelry has a 417 stamp on it, then it is likely a 10k piece of gold jewelry. This is because 10k gold is 41.7% pure.
My gold jewelry has a 750 stamp on it. What does that mean?
Gold jewelry that has a 750 stamp on it is likely 18k gold, or 75% pure gold. You will likely notice these pieces are brighter yellow in color thanks to the large amount of pure gold in them.
My gold jewelry has a 375 stamp on it. What does that mean?
These stamps are last common as they are typically only used on European jewelry items such as Claddagh rings, Celtic Crosses and even old pocket watches. Gold jewelry with a 375 stamp on it is likely 9K and tends to be very dark in color.
What is gold filled or gold overlay jewelry?
If your gold jewelry has a 585 stamp on it, then it is likely 14k gold. This stamp comes from the simple equation 14k/24k= 0.585, which is where the stamp came from.
My gold jewelry has a 585 stamp on it. What does that mean?
Many customers come to use looking to sell gold jewelry pieces that are “gold filled.” This is a very common way to make jewelry today and while it gives off the appearance of solid gold jewelry, it isn’t the same.
Gold filled jewelry, also known as gold overlay, is made by using heat and pressure to apply a layer of karat gold to a base metal. This creates an “overlay” of gold on top of the metal.
In order to qualify as a gold-filled piece, the karat of gold in each item must equal at least 1/20 of the total weight of that item. Gold filled pieces can also be 2/20 or 5/10. Gold filed items typically do have a cash value since a certain amount of gold needs to be used to create these pieces.
What is gold plated jewelry?
Gold plated jewelry is another type of jewelry that may give off the appearance of solid gold, but is actually made mostly of other metals.
If a piece of jewelry is gold plated, it means a very thin layer of gold color, or real gold is deposited on top of a metal base. The color will look similar to 14kt gold. In most pieces, this plate is only about 1/1,000-1/1,00,000 of an inch.
Typically, you will see 14KGE or 18KGEP stamps on gold plated items. This type of gold has very little value.
So, what is the difference between gold plated and gold filled?
Gold filled jewelry has a significantly larger portion of gold in it, as opposed to gold plated. Typically, gold filled jewelry will hold a greater cash value, slightly more than silver jewelry.

What is a Troy Ounce Compared to a Measurement on an Avoirdupois Scale?
Sounds confusing! It is not! Standard measurements in our world today use and Avoirdupois scale. Using this system, there are 16 ounces in a pound. It is the scale most people use when they weigh themselves.
A Troy Ounce, on the other hand, is completely different. The Troy System is used to measure gold, silver, platinum and other precious metals.
A troy ounce is heavier than an avoirdupois ounce.
The Troy Ounce used to measure gold, silver and platinum is around 10% heavier than your standard ounce. So, if you have 10 ounces of gold, it would weigh more than 10 ounces of chicken.
However, a Troy pound actually weighs less than an Avoirdupois, or standard pound. This is because a Troy Pound has a completely different definition all together. This type of pound only has 12 ounces in it, instead of 16. In other words, if you have 12 ounces of gold, you have a pound of gold.
How Many Grams are in a Regular Ounce vs a Troy Ounce?
Food is different than metal, for starters for weights.A Troy Ounce, which is used to measure gold, has approximately 31.1 grams in each ounce. A standard ounce or Avoirdupois Ounce is made up of 28.35 grams.
