For a few years I’ve been hearing the buzz about selling your gold through parties or the mail but I don’t know of anyone who has actually done it. I have a tiny assortment of random, broken, ugly or ex-boyfriend gold that I’ve thought about selling for years but haven’t had the right opportunity.
Recently I was at Mystique in Old Town and discovered that they buy gold jewelry so I decided that it was time to to sell. I brought in my little bag of broken gold having no idea what it would be worth or if it was even all real. It turned out that some of it wasn’t real but most of it was and it was worth $400. I was shocked. One antique gold bracelet was worth even more than that on consignment.
Mystique will give you a check for the gold but I’ve decided to use it as store credit towards a new piece of jewelry. This is my kind of recycling!
