Questions to Ask a Gold, Silver, and Platinum Dealer
If you are looking to make cash by selling jewelry or investing, you must take care when searching for a good dealer. Gold, silver, and platinum can be sold in the form of bullion, which will increase in value. You may also exchange precious metals at a decent price to make quick money. It is also possible to buy necklaces, rings, and other items from dealers. Before you begin, here are some questions to ask a potential buyer or seller.
What types of metal do you typically deal in?
This will help you determine if you can get the best price for your chains, watches, and other pieces at a particular dealer. Some specialize in gold and silver while others are distributors of platinum.
Are you accredited?
You have a choice in your investment. Always ensure that the dealer you have selected is accredited through the Better Business Bureau.
What types of jewelry do you buy and sell?
If you are looking to purchase a particularly rare piece, ask the dealer what types of things they typically sell. Most businesses will handle earrings, watches, and necklaces. You may have to find a specialized dealer for coins.
Is the piece of silver I'm purchasing sterling?
Sterling silver is generally more valuable. It is popular in bracelets and necklaces.
Do you work on commission?
Before you even enter the store, you should find out if the salespeople work on commission. A non-commission dealer will generally pressure you less to buy or sell.
What is the minimum investment I can make?
In the event you want to invest in precious metal, decide how much you want to spend. Many businesses have a minimum investment amount.

The dealer you buy your gold, silver and platinum from will make a difference in the value of your investment. Whether you decide to invest in jewelry like rings, earrings, or bracelets, or coins and bullion bars, it is important to choose an accredited distributor. These vendors specifically sell to investors, and know the certification that needs to be included to make the necklace, watch or chain a proper investment. Check the reputation of the bullion dealer you choose to ensure they adhere to a strict code of ethics in their buying and selling of gold, sterling silver and bullion.
When you work with a dealer to exchange your gold, silver or platinum, it is important to know the current value of the metal you are working with, to ensure you get a fair deal. The price of these metals fluctuates daily, so you need to be up on the markets if you are to be a savvy investor. You also want to be familiar with the commissions the dealer charges for exchanges, so you can calculate that amount out of your total price when you buy or sell metal. Currently the average commission on exchanging silver, gold or platinum ranges anywhere from five to six percent.
Once you choose the distributor you want to buy your gold, silver or platinum from, arrange for a timely delivery for your order. If the exchange will not be immediate, get the delivery date in writing, so you have something to fall back on if your metal doesn't arrive as promised. Once you receive your order, store your commodities in a safe place until you are ready to exchange them once again. A few easy tips will ensure your investment of rare gold, silver or platinum brings you the greatest return.
