i had many promise rings from old boyfriends. Stupid me sold them a few years ago at a yard sale for cheap! Maybe I still have all those id bracelets from the 1980's boyfriends. lol

I'm about to go thrift store shopping to find gold! Maybe they don't know how much old cheesey gold is worth! WOW!

LOL...I would also like to know where people are bringing their old gold. I have a few pieces that I received from jerk boyfriends that I will not ever wear again. My Disney fund needs to be padded a bit!!!

I've seen in the papers that some pawn shops are buying the gold. They might be worth checking. Some jewelry stores will give you a store credit instead of cash. Just check around.

Can you define SCRAP GOLD? I just went thru my jewelry box. Came up with several gold chains, bracelets & anklets from the 80's. All very short fine chains or rope style chains. Most are light, but one chain is of pretty good weight. They've been in the jewelry box for 20 yrs because they are too short now. They would make chokers. lol

There is more but I don't know if its anything I want to part with just yet even though I don't wear it. No children to pass anything down to either. Just sentimental since its from DH.

I would LOVE to rip that gold chain from DH's neck however. lol Its been a fixture since the 80's. UGH! Thank goodness its not a big heavy one. lol

Is scrap gold broken jewelry or outdated styles? Would there be more value in selling it as jewelry rather than as gold to melt down?

My son wants to see the banana, it doesn't have anything to do with my post, lol.
Let us know what happens. If it is legit, I will probably order an envelope. Thanks!

I could never get rid of anything DH gave me. It's sentimental and he has great taste in jewelry!!! LOL Some old boyfriends, however, what the heck were they thinking????

Is all gold labeled as such? In other words, if its real, will it say 10K or 18K or whatever it is?

I have lots of pieces i thought were at least 10K, but some don't have it inscribed.

Anyone know?

The pieces I picked out all say 14K. The old boyfried ID bracelets didn't say that. Even with a magnifying glass, I couldn't read what it said. I'll be taking along any I suspect but can't read. On some pieces, you needed to open the clasp as it was marked on the part that slides in to the clasp.

I just noticed some ads on Craigslist of people looking to buy broken gold necklaces, chains & items that they CLAIM they are going to repair and sell. Right. They didn't look like the spam ads. Looked like a regular ad from a regular person in a small town. lol

I can't vouch for cash4gold, but I can for http://www.brokengold.com/examples.php.

I sent in a few silver pieces and less than a week later I got a check for $50.

I was just thinking. I've always been interested in getting a metal detector and hitting the beaches. NOW may be the time!
