Tips for selling Used jewelry to dealers

Looking to find out who buys gold jewelry for the best price?   You’ve come to the right place.  As a local, family-operated coin and gold shop, we are one of the leading jewelry buyers in the area. We pay cash on the spot for gold and silver jewelry, and find gems. 

Our coin shop is located in Lake in the Hills, IL (in between Randall Rd. and Route 47).

Whether you have antique, modern, unwanted, or even broken jewelry, selling jewelry for cash is actually quite easy to do.  

  • For the fastest appraisal of your jewelry, untangle items, if you can. Otherwise, it may take longer for the jewelry buyer you are working with to do that for you. Untangling your necklaces won’t affect your price, but it can take you longer at the coin shop. Appraisers weigh all items with different gold purity separately, so keeping things separate will save you time in the shop.  

  • Be mentally prepared not to receive the value you paid a jewelry store for these items. Jewelry is a highly marked-up item due to their beauty. Sometimes, there is an emotional attachment that makes a piece seem more valuable. (such as a wedding ring or other gift).
  • Be prepared that your former jewelry appraisal will help the jewelry buyer identify the jewelry you have in hand and be especially helpful for unique items or diamonds. Still, it absolutely will not be the value you receive to sell used jewelry.

  • Finally, be aware of the precious metals spot price of the jewelry you wish to sell. No matter where you sell old jewelry, the jewelry buyer will ultimately take the spot price as a method used to calculate your jewelry value.

    We use kitco.com (see all precious metals). When working with Hertel’s Coins to sell used jewelry, we’ll inform you of the spot price, so you informed. Not all places that buy jewelry will provide you that courtesy.

Highly recommend! Shaun and Brandy came out to our house to give us an appraisal. We did a great deal of research ahead of time and contacted several shops. I immediately felt comfortable during the initial phone conversation and within minutes of being in our home felt like we were talking to old friends. Shaun was incredibly thorough and based on our research the price he offered was very fair! Thankful we found Hertels!

Best coin dealer in the area! Appraisal of my inherited coin collection was simple and fast. They explained to me not only coin values but also shared some history about a few of the coins. I would do business again with them and highly recommend this coin shop!

I definitely recommend this place and will be a repeat customer. Saturday 3/14 was my first time buying silver and I had several questions for Shaun and his wife. They both took the time to answer my questions and helped make recommendations based on the long term strategy I am looking to achieve.
