Get the most for your Scrap Gold from Sell Gold
There are many ways that your jewelry can be made unwearable. Generally it is improper storage that damages jewelry the most. The best way to store metal pieces is individually to prevent any scratches or tangles from occurring. Jewelry is also commonly damaged by using the wrong cleaning products. Ultrasonic cleaners will damage gemstones, as can commercial jewelry cleaners. Many chemicals can also react with the solder or gold alloy used in many jewelry items. It is always best to consulate with a jeweler on how to properly clean your precious metal and gemstone jewelry.
Unfortunately, despite your best efforts, a jewelry item may still get damaged. While many repairs can be made to jewelry, how do you know when something is beyond repair? Pitting or dulling of a gemstone, due to chemicals that contain acetone or turpentine, is something that cannot be fixed. Often the loss of a gemstone or the breaking off of a metal piece can mean that a jewelry item is not repairable.
Other times, people may try to practice a little DIY on their jewelry and these home "repairs" can cause a piece to be permanently damaged. For instance, regular glue, if used to fix a loose stone, can change the color of the gemstone. Resoldering can melt certain metals and affect other parts of the jewelry item that you did not intend.
If jewelry has reached the point where it is beyond repair, you can still get a return on your original investment by sending the item to Sell Gold. No matter what the jewelry is, a gold broach that has lost gemstones, a broken earring or a class ring that has been bent, Sell Gold will give you cash for your precious metal jewelry.
