The value of your jewelery depends on the weight, the carbide number, the fine content of gold, and the daily price of gold. If you want to know exactly how much your gold is worth, you need a specialist.
Caution: The material value is decisive
Gold jewelery is rarely made of 24 carat fine gold, but mostly made of an alloy (mixture of metals). In Austria, for example, mainly 14 karat (585) is sold, which contains 58.35% Feingold. If you are selling a gold jewel, you will always receive the value of the fine at the price of the day. The material value is therefore decisive. The working time the goldsmith has invested in the production of the jewelery is not taken into account in the evaluation.
Why old jewelery is not an investment form
Jewelry is beautiful and valuable, but not a form of investment. The value of the jewelery can only be assessed by a specialist. It is therefore not very suitable for precaution. Therefore, I advise you to sell unworn jewelery and to exchange in investment gold like gold coins or bars. The value of the investment gold can be determined at any time via the Internet or the newspaper by looking up the daily price. Coins, such as Ducats or the Viennese Philharmonic, or bars, are the most suitable, in smaller units (coins from 3 grams, bars from 20 grams). Should you actually need some money, you are more flexible with the small units and do not have to sell all the reserves at once.
Anyone with gold has permanent values
