Certified Diamonds

If you are looking to buy or sell diamonds, the best advice is to make sure to purchase or sell a diamond which is certified. Theres are many companies who claim to certify your diamond, but the top rated institution is GIA. The gemological institute of america is highly revered and respected as a staple of the gem and diamond trade. The certificate will cost a couple hundred bucks but it will increase the value of your diamond as well. Your diamond will be easier to sell, hold its value, hold insurance value, and documented as well.
Class Rings

Do you have class rings that you just don't really wear anymore? Its a great time to sell these rings. A lot of collectors want class rings to add to their collections so some of these pieces of jewelry can fetch some nice premiums. Long Island Gold Buyers just purchased a Cooperstown class ring for a hefty amount ! Class rings can be silver, gold, plated, and even in some cases platinum! Look around for your old high school or college rings and bring it in !
Selling a Watch
08/20/2010 02:40 AM
What type of information should you know before coming in to sell your watch?

Well first off, you should know that different watches are different prices. The brand, model, make, condition, and year made all factor into this decision. Watches which include the original manufacturer papers and boxes can fetch upto 15% more cash for a watch without any of this documentation and materials. This is because when we re-sell the watch the buyer feels more comfortable with a watch that includes old warranties, boxes, and papers.

So there you have it, if you have a watch to sell... just check for the boxes, papers, and anything else that came with it.. it could get you a few extra bucks !

Is now the time to sell your gold?

Absolutely! Gold is at near all time high levels, if you have not already sold your gold to one of the many gold buyers near you... do so now! It is the perfect time to sell, right before the market may crash or level down to a lower level. Silver and Platinum are also trading at very high levels. Many experts are saying this time may not come around for another few decades !

How can a jeweler tell what type of gold you have, and if its real or fake?
08/14/2010 12:32 PM
There are many different types of gold jewelry, from 4k-24k. Jewelers must be able to differentiate amongst these different types to determine the value and cost of the jewelry. The simple solution to this problem are the acid and slab testing system.

The way this works is the gold jewelry is rubbed against a black slab rock and some of the gold rubs onto the slab. Next we pour an acid onto the marking and watch the magic happen. If the color stays this means we have real gold. If the color vanishes and the acid removes the marking we have fake gold!

Now we have different acids for each of the different karats of gold, and this is how we test the gold !

Also, we can use magnets to test gold as well.... because gold is not magnetic !




How to get the most for your Gold !

A very popular trend these days has been gold buying and gold selling. Its no breaking news that gold is at an all time high, and there are a gazillion of companies out there willing to pay you for any gold jewelry you may have. People are lining up to sell their rings, chains, watches, coins, scrap gold to jewelers and pawn shops. How can you take advantage of this? Read below.

First of all, you must be aware of current gold prices and the breaking news.
www.kitco.com --> This website will give you the up to date minute by minute gold prices, silver prices, and platinum.

I currently live in long island, and there must be over 100 gold buying stores and pawn shops offering to buy your gold at the "highest" prices.

You should be aware of what type of gold you own. There are different purities in gold and some are 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, and 24k.

Depending on what karat type your gold is you can receive much more money !

One place I went to ask questions was Nassau Buyers in hicksville (long island), they gave me a bit of information I will pass on to you all...

Before selling your gold know how much it weighs, this is in Grams, ounces, or pennyweights. These are the 3 main measurements jewelers will use to assess how much you will get paid.

I will be back with more information soon, so keep posted !
