    I’ve never really trust the idea of shipping my gold to someone and accepting their weight and sending me a check. I know a lot of people use these companies, but it feels like I lose a lot of control in the process. It would be useful for people who do not know where else to sell their old jewelry, or do not wish to work with pawnshops due to their predatory nature.

      I understand your gripe and I agree. It is very hard to go through with this type of method for selling off your old gold jewelry or any gold for that matter. I have constantly been paranoid to sell it off too. This is why I get a friend of mine to melt down the jewelry I own and then I go and get it appraised to see what the worth would be. If none of the sites offer a price it was appraised for, I will just sell it elsewhere.

    I have some gold lying around my collection and I’ve considered selling it off to make some cash. I haven’t had much money as of late so I am looking into sites to sell gold. I’m just paranoid when it comes to selling anything like this online.

  • Tasha

    I’ve sold my gold on ExpressGoldCash before and I got a nice amount from them. They’re my favorite on the list by far. I checked out a couple of the other sites, and those are also quite good, but I prefer ExpressGoldCash over them all. Thanks for the list though. :)

    I’ve been thinking of selling off most of my gold and old jewelry. I figure most of the jewelry I own can be melted down and I can gain some extra money on that. Do all of these sites offer up different prices? I imagine they all have different prices per ounce.

  • Lori

    All great sites worthy of checking into. I agree with the list too, #1 Empire Gold Buyers is by far the best on the list. I’ve sold off gold with them before in the past and the money I’ve made from them has been very helpful. I have looked at prices for each of the sites on the list and they too offer good pay. They’re all worth looking into.
