All About Scrap Gold
Too often, people have a misunderstanding about what scrap gold is and how much they can get for it at a gold party. This is unfortunate because it means you might have a lot of gold lying around the house that you could scrap out for cash.
Scrap Gold is the term jewelers use to describe any type of gold that serves no purpose except to be melted down. Our gold party representatives purchase scrap gold from customers, compensate them accordingly, and then we melt it down and sell the gold on the international gold market. So, let’s make a list of items you might have around your house that could give you a nice pile of scrap gold to sell at one of our gold parties!
This list isn’t exhaustive of different types of scrap gold, but it will open your eyes to some of the things you have around the house that could put some extra cash in your pocket at the next gold party. And, it will help you start thinking creatively about scrap gold, so you can find even more hidden wealth.
Some scrap gold items you might have are:
- Broken Gold Jewelry
- Gold Chains that are forever tangled together
- Gold Earrings that have lost their mate
- Gold Teeth / Fillings
- Gold foil
- Gold pins or brooches
- Gold class rings
- Ugly, Outdated gold jewelry
- Any gold jewelry you will never wear again!
Really, scrap gold is anything you have that is made of gold that you don’t need. An old item of gold that can’t be restored to it’s former glory is a prime candidate for scrap gold. Also, consider scrapping those items that are missing a mate, such as a single gold earring.
Look around and you might find a great deal of scrap gold right under your nose. Luckily Premiere Gold Parties pays on the weight, not the beauty or condition of the jewelry at all of our gold parties. Ugly or broken doesn’t matter, that’s why it’s called SCRAP GOLD!
