Most women find that the easiest way to get quick cash is to sell their old unwanted gold jewelry. But that can be hard when all you have is jewelry from a loved one. This is why pawn shops are a great place to go when you need to get cash fast but don’t want to sell. Before you sell your jewelry, you should know that you probably won’t be getting rich off of your jewelry. You’ll just be getting a few extra bucks to help with the bills. Either way, pawn shops are your most straightforward option. Selling or pawning your item to Sportsmans Pawn is a great way to get cash fast. Here are some shops where you can sell your old unwanted jewelry for some easy money. 

Local Jewelers

Selling to a local jewelry store is a lot like selling to a pawn shop. You will need to get your jewelry appraised so that you know your jewelry’s worth before selling. Some jewelers will only buy jewelry if they know it will catch the attention of their customers. Other more antique-looking jewelry they may not be as interested in. When you plan to sell to a jewelry store, make sure to call ahead first. Some shops won’t buy used jewelry, so you will want to find out over the phone before going into the shop. 

Selling Online

Most people will recommend selling your jewelry online. Selling online takes time and energy, but it is usually the best way to get every last dollar of your jewelry’s worth. When you sell to a local shop, they will usually only pay you a fraction of the gold’s value. Otherwise, they won’t be able to make a profit when they sell the jewelry again. If you plan to sell online, you can try a couple of places, such as KSL, eBay, and Facebook Marketplace. Be prepared to wait, not all valuable jewelry sells fast, and you might be waiting for months at a time. 


Pawnshops are one of the easy options. While you might want the best cashback you can get, you might not have the time to wait for it. When you sell your jewelry to a pawn shop, you can get the money you need the same day you go to the shop. You can also choose whether you’re interested in pawning or selling your item. If you own jewelry that you don’t want to let go of, but you do want cash, you can get a loan for it and pay the money back later to get your item back. 

Antique Dealers

If your gold jewelry is ancient, you might consider selling it to an antique shop. The necklace you own could be worth more than you know. Antique dealers usually sell in stand-alone shops or even small shops in the mall. You have to be aware that some antique shops may try to scam you, so you should do whatever research you can beforehand. Get your item appraised and search on eBay and other online shops to see what your item is usually sold for.
