Almost everybody has a little gold kicking around their house. It might be old jewelry you inherited that you never liked because it is a dated style that looks more like something your grandmother would wear. Or, maybe it is jewelry you once purchased yourself or received as a gift but no longer wear because it no longer fits your taste or its broken. It might even be old fillings that you had removed in the past or old rings your finger will not fit into. No matter what sort of gold you have, with the prices of this precious commodity today you may want to look into selling it.

There are plenty of either established or newly-formed gold buyers in Columbus OH. You might see them on every corner. But just like when you are selling anything else from your car to your home, you want to make sure that you are getting the best price possible for your gold. This is not as easy as you might think. First of all, gold comes in many different “strengths” or levels of purity. For example, you might have jewelry that is only 10K gold, or if you have gold that you purchased as an investment it might be 18K or even higher up to 24K. This means that there are differing amounts of pure gold within the total. The gold buyers in Columbus OH will likely want to melt down the items you give them and get the pure gold out since that can be sold for the most money.

This means, then, that you should have a definite idea of the purity of the gold in the item you are selling so that you have an idea of how much you will actually get when you sell it. You cannot just weigh your jewelry and then multiply the weight by the pure commodity price of the gold at the time. And of course, the lower purity levels of the gold you own, the less gold buyers in Columbus OH will pay for it. In other words, a necklace that is 10K gold versus 18K will be a significantly lower price. Most of the time, your gold will have a stamp identifying its purity. You should search for it before you try to sell so that you can make sure that buyer is offering you a fair price.
