First select our jewelry value calculator. Then you’ll be prompted to select a metal type. In other words.. what metal your jewelry is made out of. Most of your jewelry’s pawn value will come from the item’s metal weight. Your jewelry could be made with 10kt, 14kt, 18kt, 22kt gold, platinum, or silver. 24kt is rare, and it’s likelier to be seen in either coins or boolean bars when pawn shops come across them.
The best way to find out what your jewelry is made of, is by looking closely for any markings on your jewelry. Try with the naked eye first, but you may need a magnifying glass or a loupe. Once you can see the hallmarks, check and make note of the markings. And something additional to just a number and the karat stamp is important; it could be your jewelry is plated and pawn shops may not accept plated jewelry unless it has other intrinsic or brand name value.
If you do have a gold coin or silver bar for example, do a little research online and you’ll learn a ton (or ounce), especially about what the cash value of your gold and metals really is compared to ongoing precious metal market prices. Yup! It’s like the stock market.
You could be wanting to pawn a necklace, an engagement ring, or a bracelet, but unless you have a designer piece of jewelry, a pawn shop will offer you a loan amount based on the item’s weight.
Second, enter jewelry’s weight in grams. In most cases, pawn shops pay per metal gram. Pawn shops generally deduct the weight of stones or other materials unless from the total metal weight, unless you have diamonds or another expensive gemstone mounted on your jewelry. To determine the weight of your jewelry use a digital scale or mail scale to figure this out. The more your item weighs, the more money a pawn shop will offer you. If you don’t have a scale, you can try and estimate it by searching similar items with our General Merchandise Calculator with your jewelry’s description.
If you want to pawn an engagement ring use these instructions to get a pawn estimate fast. The diamond calculator can be used on its own if you have loose diamonds or you know the specifications of your stones.
First, select your diamond’s shape, then the 3 C’s
A. Select Diamond Carat Size
You can find this information on your jewelry’s certification. If you don’t have this you can roughly estimate and measure these specifications here. Once you have measured the diamond’s carat size proceed to the next step.
B. Select Diamond Color
Diamonds can range in color graded from letter D to Z. If you don’t have your jewelry’s certification. Check the chart below. Colorless and Near Colorless Diamonds are quite rare so try and use a loupe or magnifying glass under good light.
C. Select Diamond Clarity
The clarity of the diamond is determined by the number of inclusions you can see within the diamond. Simply stated, inclusions are specs or scratches found within the stone. See the chart below and compare with a loupe or magnifying glass.
And lastly, count the number of stones on your jewelry and enter size or carat weight. If you have different sized diamonds group them separately, then count the total in each group and use the diamond calculator individually per group.
