Wow, congrats! You must've had quite a bit, and/or found a really good place to take it to get top dollar!

I've been hunting around for my old stuff...I can't find some that I KNOW I've got somewhere...sigh. Anyway, as soon as I've found it all, I'll be off to find out what it's worth too!

Wishing us all luck!

I live in chicago... does anyone know where I can go to sell my gold?

I don't want to do the online ones. I called one place and they said $7 a gram and from what you are all posting that sounds too cheap.

BCV2003, I am in SW PA as well. If you don't mind me asking where you took your loot to?

I don't have much, but something is better than nothing any day. LOL!

THANK YOU OP!!! I had no idea that I had $558 just laying in my junk jewelry drawer!! I would have never thought of selling this old stuff (I did keep the sentimental stuff!)....my husband is out right now at the jewelers and was offered $558 from the first guy he went to!!!

We are working on prepayment for a 2009 cruise!
Once again, I learn something new everyday from the DisBoards!!! Thanks for sharing!

And yes, when I told my husband last night that he had to go "hock" some old stuff, he thought I was crazy!!! But, he's loving me now!

We are in the Chicago suburbs. After getting a few prices for our gold pieces from a few local jewelry stores we decided to check on one we found on craigs list. My husband went on Saturday to Richard Allen Jewelry in Hoffman Estates and came home with a check for 704.00. The first two stores offered us 200.00 and 500.00. If you go on the chicagoland craigs list and type in scrap gold you will get there phone number and address.

This is what they say on there add-- NO GAMES..shop around. We buy from consumers and dealers all over the country.
10K 11.42/gram (figures at $17.71/ dwt pennyweight)
14K 16.00/gram (figures at $24.80/ dwt pennyweight)
18K 20.57/gram (figures at $31.88/ dwt pennyweight)
22K 25.14/gram (figures at $38.97/ dwt pennyweight)

We are very happy with the outcome, I will defiantly go back if I come up with more stuff.
Hope this info helps.

Are you in the city? I went to A-1 Jewelry & Coin on Irving Park Road. I think I was given a fair offer (I decided to send it to a NY place I read about in the Wall Street Journal -I should hear back today) -but the guy knew I had done my research. There was another customer before me, who was given $15 per pennyweight for his 14k stuff -whereas he quoted me $22.50 per pennyweight.

If anyone tries the Cash for Gold place on Rt 28 (527 S Broadway, Salem, NH) interviewed at end of the article, please let me know. I'll be driving right by there on Sunday. I would be interested in knowing what you were paid per gram or pennyweight for 14K. Thanks.

We bought our engagement ring and wedding bands there in 1996! They were really nice and brought us in the back to check out a bunch of diamonds. We also cashed in some old gold there to pay for the rings.

On feeling weird, yes I did. I've never done something like that before. But I figured this was old stuff, never worn, some broken, why the heck not get some cash for it. It's not doing me any good.

Its a small family run place in West Mifflin, called Kapolka's and its on Pennsylvania Avenue

I used my postal scale to weigh my stuff and I had a weight of about 4.5 oz (including some of the gemstones). When it was weighed they said it was 3.8 oz because he said the scales that jewelers use are different. I didn't really have any concern with the weight and they were going to give me the gemstones back because they didn't really add any value.

No problem and good luck.

I would call them first and check their hours. Something makes me think they are only open until 5 on weekends (unless you make an appointment) and they are not open on weekends.

I had to go to Harrisburg for work yesterday and I was anxious to find out how much I had so I asked my Dad to take my stuff there. He knew the people there anyways so I figured maybe I'd get a better deal if he took it. Who knows??? The plan was supposed to be that he would call me with the offer and let me decide. He called me that afternoon to tell me how much he sold it for, no choices...lol Although I had estimated on my own somewhere between 1000 and 1400 so I thought it was a decent offer anyways.

Let me know how it turns out for you.
