Precious Metals | Gold Silver Platinum Palladium

There are metals and there are precious metals. A precious metal is a rare, naturally occurring metallic chemical element of high economic value. Some of the more common precious metals are gold, silver, platinum, rhodium and palladium. Of those, gold and silver are the more popular. These precious metals have been valued and used for centuries. While the precious metals have industrial uses also, they are known for their use in jewelry, coinage and art. 

Gold has historically been used in jewelry and held on by families, being passed down from generation to generation in some parts of the world. It is even revered in some cultures. In those countries gold jewelry is made from high karat, close to pure gold. Here in America, we managed to make jewelry out of 10 karat gold, which has 41.6% gold. Jewelry here is mostly made of 10 karat, 14 karat or 18 karat gold. 

In recent times, with the price of gold rising by leaps and bounds, people here realized their broken and unworn jewelry was cash just laying around. Most broken things do not yield much of a return but when it comes to gold jewelry, the return is handsome. Gold jewelry may be damaged and broken, or out of style, but the gold in that jewelry is still good and of value. So while you will get a payout based on the value of gold, it is still a generous return on your broken, unwanted or outdated jewelry. Look at it this way - a dress bought some years back is worth a dollar or two at the garage sale, or just a drop off to the local donation store. A broken piece of furniture is one call away from bulk pick up. But with gold, silver, diamond jewelry, it is a completely different ball game. So before you throw away anything that looks like gold, silver, diamonds, have an expert look at it. Most places should do that free of charge. If you are unsure of where to go, feel free to come with your broken or unwanted gold, silver, diamond jewelry and the folks at Turn It To Cash will gladly evaluate it for you, free of charge.
