If you’re on a tight budget during this never-ending recession, remember: you don’t have to sacrifice spirit-lifting pleasures such as jewelry.
Here are a few steps you can take that are only a jewelry box away!
Get Rid of Old Gold:
Your old, unused gold and platinum jewelry could be worth hundreds, even thousands of dollars – more now than ever before. Why not sell your old gold and turn it into something new and exciting!
Joseph Schubach Jewelers will buy your old gold and platinum jewelry out right or apply it to a new purchase. It’s an easy way to get that ring you’ve had your eye on – or to get some extra cash. Contact us for details on how we can help you turn your old memories into new ones.
Keep the Stones:
If you’ve got fine jewelry that seems worn or out of date, or broken, you should keep the stones. Think of a jeweler as a tailor, if you need a ring redesigned, it’s a cinch. Emeralds are just like buttons that can be added to other pieces to give a whole new look.
A good practice is buying old jewelry from swap meets, garage sales, or estate sales. Keep thinking about the type of jewelry design you would like, and just be creative to get it by combining elements from more than one piece. It’s far less costly to have the diamonds and gemstones available and just put them in a different setting, than to buy an entirely new piece.
Develop a Relationship with your Jeweler:
With gold being as valuable as it is, it’s important to work with a jeweler you can trust. You don’t want to end up handing in a 14k gold chain and receiving a piece with 10k gold. It’s very likely that you won’t even notice, but the piece will be worth far less.
The same is true of diamonds in your recycled jewelry. An unscrupulous jeweler can switch gemstones on you, leaving you with a less valuable piece while he resells the one he switched.
After 100 years in business, we can assure you that we are the most trusted jeweler we know and we pride ourselves in creating relationships that span generations. Give us a call at (888) 724-8222 and let us see how we can help you recycle your jewelry today. There may be a new gift in store for you.
