Looking for cash for gold and jewellery exchanges? Well there are hundreds of pawnshops all over South Africa where you can take your unused jewellery and sell them to the dealer. The only problem with these pawnshops is that you will most likely not get the price you are looking for or that you jewellery is actually valued at.
It is therefore imperative that you get your jewellery valued before you pawn it off. With the advent of the Internet and online purchasing and selling, there are a number of websites that will allow you to trade your gold jewellery. One such website is www.themint.co.za. The Mint is a luxury gold and diamonds broker and are the leading jewellery buyer in South Africa. In order to sell your gold jewellery to them, all you have to do is take your jewellery in to their store based in Johannesburg, and they will pay you on the spot. What is more is that it does not matter what condition your gold is in, they will buy it from you.
The Mint has a process of evaluating your gold in order to ensure that you get the right price for your pieces. Firstly, they will check the karat of the items to determine its’ purity and they do so by locating a stamp on the piece that will either say 9k, 14k, 18k, 22k, and so on. If for any reason there is no stamp on your jewellery have no fear as they will assess the karat quickly and easily by using an acid test. Once they have assessed the karat of the pieces, they will separate the items by karat and weigh them to calculate your payout. This amount is determined by the current market price of gold. All of the abovementioned services are free and there is also no obligation to sell your jewellery to them. Should you have a gold ring with a stone in it and would like to keep the stone, then The Mint will remove the stone for you at no charge.

Cash for gold and jewellery exchanges have never been easier. No longer do you have to sit with all that unwanted or outdated jewellery in your jewellery box anymore. You just have to search the web or visit your local jeweller and find all of the places that will help you get rid of that unwanted jewellery. Many people in South Africa sell their jewellery as a means to get much needed money.
Sometimes this means selling their family heirlooms and regretting it long after the fact. It is for this reason that established jewellery traders began offering financing options to their clients who are in dire need of money and who do not want to sell their jewellery. Gold and Finance who were established in 1992, were the first jewellery exchangers that introduced this concept to the market.
There are certain steps that you have to take in order to get finance from Gold and Finance:
- Your valuables will be assessed by one of their skilled Appraisers and an amount will be offered to you as a loan.
- On signing a pledge form, your valuables will be sealed in an exclusively manufactured bag with a unique seal number. Therefore for the duration of your loan, your valuables will be held securely in this bag and therefore cannot get confused with any one else’s’ goods.
- After 30 days, your loan will expire. From here you have two options: 1. Claim back your valuables; 2. Extend your loan.
Should you for any reason not be able to pay back the loan, then the jeweller will resell your jewellery in order to make back the capital lent to you.
