Jewelry, Family, and What Really Matters
One Saturday, a client came in to sell her jewelry. Things were going along normally with the evaluation of the jewelry. It was a larger than normal sale, and she had been around to a few other jewelers. Our offer was the highest, and she decided to sell. When filling out the paper work, she explained to her daughter (age 12-ish) that she was selling her jewelry so she could pay her next medical bill. This was the third treatment, and she felt it was not going to work. She... read more »

Get More Cash for Your Jewelry
The new Arden Jewelers gold buying commercial will be airing soon, but we thought we’d release it first to our loyal blog readers. Shooting the commercial was a lot of fun, and we hope you enjoy it.

Perspective – Is Selling Gold Jewelry on Craigslist Worth it?
We make trade-off decisions every day: “Sleep another 10min and skip breakfast?” “Pay $0.05 more per gallon, or drive across town for cheaper gas?” “Sell my jewelry to a jewelry store, or try to get more on Craigslist?”. So, which one should you chose? Selling your jewelry for retail prices on Craigslist and other online local classified sites can sometimes get you 10-35% more, but you are likely trading off time, convenience, and, maybe most importantly, safety. A quick Google search for Craigslist crimes results in countless scams and news... read more »
Cash for Gold vs. Cash for Jewelry
We hear ads on TV all the time about “CASH for Gold.” We see ads all over the internet offering “CASH for Gold.” Our email inboxes are filled with spam for “CASH for Gold.” But, chances are you don’t have solid gold bricks laying around that you want to convert to cash. You have jewelry for sale. Is there a difference between “Cash for Gold” and “Cash for Jewelry?” Don’t the Cash for Gold companies factor in the diamonds and gemstones? I saw a news report where one of the... read more »

It’s important to realize that jewelry... read more »
