How to Sell Gold

If you have a piece of gold jewelry (such as a gold chain) or a few gold coins from your coin collections, selling it is very easy! At least, this is true if you visit a local pawn shop that offers knowledgeable service, like Greenbrier Pawn. Selling to local businesses like ours makes things easy. You don't have to worry about the hassle of packaging up your gold and sending it to some gold buyer through the mail, nor do you have to search all over for someone who will pay you what you deserve for your gold.


Decide What to Sell

Of course, if you want to sell gold, the first decision you have to make is about the specific items you want to sell. With the right gold buyer, you can sell pretty much any gold items that you don't want anymore. This includes gold jewelry that is in good condition, or even jewelry that is showing signs of wear. Gold bars or bullion are obviously an option, as are gold coins. There are assorted other types of gold that you can sell that you may not have considered, too; for example, many people don't know you can sell scrap gold or dental gold. Luckily, you can, as long as you work with the right gold buyer! Gather up any and all unwanted gold in your home for the best payouts!


Also, don't forget that we buy more than just golden items! We understand the value of other precious metals, too. For example, platinum and sterling silver items are both valuable here. Bring platinum jewelry, silver bullion, and more, and you can get some extra cash for these items today.


Choose Where You'll Sell Your Gold

Really, all you have to worry about is bringing your unwanted gold to our Chesapeake location. You can bring as much gold as you want, or you can bring just one or two jewelry items or other pieces; it's up to you. Regardless, it's a relatively fast process to get express gold cash from here.


Basically, just hand us your gold, and we'll give you a free estimate right then. You don't really have to do anything, except wait a few minutes for us to look over your specific items and offer you a great price. The whole process doesn't take long at all when you use Greenbrier Pawn as your potential buyer, and you can always expect great customer service each step of the way. If you decide to sell to us, you'll get your cash today!


Let us Value Your Gold

Any time during our normal business hours is the right time to sell your gold. Visit our local store so we can walk you through the process of selling real gold of pretty much any type, from a piece of jewelry to a large collection. Just hand your yellow or white gold items to us, and we'll handle the valuation and payout process. Just make sure you bring your ID along with your gold piece, since we'll need it to complete the transaction. It only takes us a few minutes to value your gold, so there's no long wait for you to worry about!


Get Paid

When you decide to sell to us, we'll complete the transaction right then and make the payment on the spot! We always pay our customers in cash, whether you're selling gold or anything else of value. There's no worry about having a bank account, paying fees to a check cashing service, or waiting for the check to clear at the bank. Not only will you get paid the most by working with us, but you'll get paid the fastest, too!


How Much Can I Get for My Gold?

You can visit us for verbal appraisals for your unwanted jewelry and gold. If you're curious what you'll get offered, you have to understand that we look at a few things. All reputable buyers of gold and valuable metal do. Rest assured, although our offers vary based on what you bring to us in particular, you'll get the most money selling here. After all, we pride ourselves on paying some of the highest gold and silver prices!


First, we'll look at the particular type of gold item that you're bringing in. If you bring in dental gold or scrap gold, our offer will be based on the melt value of the gold itself. On the other hand, if you bring us rare gold coins or nice gold jewelry, we'll base the value on more than just the gold. Instead, we'll look at things like the resale value of the item in its entirety. Although the melt value of gold is quite valuable on its own, the latter will often score you even more cash.


When we are assessing items based on their melt value alone, we look at a couple of things: the purity of the gold, as well as weight of the item. Some gold items that people bring us are made from pure gold, which is also known as 24K gold. However, most gold items aren't actually made from pure gold at all. Both old and new jewelry are typically made from a mix of gold and other alloys. The percentage of actual gold does matter and impact value. 18-karat gold is highly valuable, while 10k gold -- while still valuable -- isn't worth as much. If you bring in multiple items with varying gold contents, don't worry; we will value each item separately. Naturally, we will also pay attention to the current spot price of gold; it does vary and fluctuate, but it's held steady and been pretty high in recent years, so now is definitely a good time for you to sell.


If you've brought in jewelry that is worth more than just its melt value, we'll take a few minutes to perform jewelry appraisals on each piece you've brought in. For example, gold watches or diamond rings that are made from gold are worth more than just the gold content itself. At least, this is the case if the jewelry or watch is still in good condition. Even if it isn't, it's still valuable!

​Bring all of your unwanted gold to us, and we'll pay on the spot! Just remember that gold buying is not the only thing we do here. We also make great offers, based on market price, for other items of value that you want to sell, including silver dollars, an unwanted diamond engagement ring, and more. We pay top dollar for all of these things as your premier jeweler and gold buyer here in Chesapeake.


Best Place to Sell Gold

Your local pawn shop is likely the best place to sell gold, particularly if you're looking to stick to a local business. It's true that there are reputable online gold buyers, and some people have good experiences selling gold to online gold and jewelry buyers. However, it can be harder to find a trustworthy and experienced precious metal buyer online than you think. Plus, even if you find an online buyer that has a good reputation and plenty of positive reviews, you have to worry about your gold getting lost in the mail, or the wait time for them to assess your jewelry and send you a check.


Since many people want to sell gold when they are looking for fast cash in particular, selling locally makes the most sense. A good pawn shop will provide you with a safe and secure place to quickly sell your gold, and they'll give you the best value, too. Get a good deal and quality service by selling gold necklaces, bracelets, coins and more at your local pawn and jewelry store, Greenbrier Pawn.


In particular, if you're wondering which pawn shop is best for getting a cash offer for gold and other pre-owned merchandise, Greenbrier Pawn should be your first and only stop.
