With Gold at $2K an Ounce, Is It Time to Turn Old Jewelry into Holiday Cash?

Gold hit the $2,000 per ounce mark in late October, and there are indications it could move higher this year. Are you sitting on a “gold mine” of old jewelry that you don’t wear, because it is broken or woefully out-of-fashion?

With the price of gold at record highs, now is the time to go through your jewelry box and clean out the jewelry you no longer wear. Be they items you inherited, or have had sitting there unworn since college, or are dented and dinged ~ if they don’t have sentimental value, trade them in for cash or turn them into something you do love. Perry’s Diamonds & Estate Jewelry will evaluate and purchase your gold, silver and other valuables items while you wait at their SouthPark store Buying Office. No appointment required (but we always suggest you make one) and there is no charge for the evaluation.

You can use the money to help pay for your holiday gifts, or use it to trade up to something much more fab from Perry’s amazing selection. Or you can work with their in-house custom designers to redesign your old jewelry into something you’ll want to wear again. 

How It Works

Perry’s has 10 GIA Graduate Gemologists on staff who offer some of the most expert evaluations of precious metals and gem values available to you. One of their staff will evaluate your jewelry while you watch and tell you the value of what you have. If you decide to sell, they’ll write you a check on the spot.

Walk-ins are always welcome

Buying offices are open Monday-Saturday 10AM to 6PM** 

It’s Not Just Gold

Perry’s Diamonds & Estate Jewelry has bought and sold over THIRTY-FIVE MILLION DOLLARS worth of jewelry over the past several years alone. The folks at Perry’s tell us that demand is very strong on designer and signed jewelry pieces such as Tiffany, Cartier, Van Clef & Arpels, and that certain Rolex models continue to fetch premium prices due to the lack of available inventory from COVID-related production slowdowns, as well as a rapid rise in consumer demand.  

In addition to diamonds, jewelry, watches, gold, coins and silver, Perry’s also buys and consigns designer handbags, where just like watches the secondary market also continues to rise due to ~ you guessed it ~ production-related issues during COVID and an increased demand since the pandemic. Right now, they are looking for designer handbags in good condition from the following brands: Chanel, Valentino, Celine, Dior, Fendi, Goyard, Gucci, Hermes, Goyard, Dolce & Gabbana, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Yves Saint Laurent.

All items will be authenticated prior to purchase or consignment.

Perry’s tells us that every day they have customers who are pleasantly surprised when they are paid hundreds – sometimes thousands – of dollars for items they had laying around the house. Now’s the time ladies! Bring anything you are considering selling to their location across from the Mall in the blue office building on Carnegie Boulevard and have it evaluated at no cost. Nothing to lose, money to gain 🙂
