Gold is gold, it retains its value based on the current daily rates for gold, and it does not matter when the item was made.  If you’re just looking to get some extra cash for old jewelry you’ve had hanging around the house or because you are in a pinch, Parker Pawn & Jewelry has you covered.



The current value of gold is always publicly available, so it is important to educate yourself on how much you can expect to receive for your gold. Knowing the weight of your gold and the current value, you can estimate how much your gold or jewelry is worth.

It is important to remember that the value of gold is to remember that it is based on its purity.   In the simplest of terms think of 24K gold and look at it as a pizza that has been cut into 24 equal pieces. If you take two pieces away, you are left with 22K gold. If you take 6 pieces away, you are left with 18K gold.

If you have an 18K gold coin, it means there are only 18 pieces of pure gold, or it is 75 percent pure gold. If the current value of pure gold was $1,100 per ounce, then your 18K gold coin would only be worth 75 percent of $1,100 per ounce, which is $825 per ounce. If your gold coin contained two ounces of pure gold, then it would be valued at $1,650.
