I was about to go into a jewlery store at the mall - when i saw a stand that said "we buy gold" figured it was a scam - anyway went over (happened to know the kids from my sons camp) anyway i told him i was about to go to a jewlery store but lets see what his price was - i almost fainted - he said jewlery is the highest its been in the 8 months he's been working the stand! So of course i said i'll sell it! He said the jewlery stores give a bit less - if thats true or not - i would have been thrilled with a few hundred but $900.00 i was flawed..........

Is it just regular jewelry stores that everyone is going to?

Thanks

I read the other post about this and collected all my stuff but haven't gotten to the jewelry store yet.
How did you all do it? Did you have to take the stones out of the rings? I know some of my stones are emeralds and they are expensive, and I still have my diamond in my engagement ring from my wedding that ended in divorce. I have been saving it for my sons to use but they said they would never give their girlfriends a 1/4 ct.

I'm trying out cash4gold.com, I requested an envelope from them. I won't be too disappointed if it's a scam since I wasn't going to do anything with the jewelry anyway, but I'll be excited if it does.

My son wants to see the banana, it doesn't have anything to do with my post, lol.

But they might want to use the stones in another ring some day. When I got married, diamonds were very expensive and we were poor, so I got a quarter carat ring. After 10 years, dh took the engagement ring, bought a large stone and a second quarter carat diamond and had a gorgeous ring made for me.
