Sell Wedding Rings

Marriage is something to celebrate and commemorate. However, the road beyond the nuptials can take unexpected turns. In some cases, both parties are better off parting ways. This can lead to financial difficulties. Often times selling off valuables or assets can alleviate this pressure. Regardless of the situation, selling a wedding ring is a way to acquire additional income and move on from the weight of the past.

Where Can I Sell My Wedding Ring?

There are numerous places to sell wedding rings, both online and in person. However, not all ring buyers are the same or can offer you the same payout.

Here are a few popular options and what you might expect from each:

  • Pawn shops: An in-person pawn shop may agree to buy your wedding ring, depending on what their customer base is interested in. In order to make a profit, they’ll generally offer you a portion of the ring’s value.
  • Jewelers: Similar to pawn shops, brick-and-mortar jewelry stores are focused on retail sales. Tupically you’ll be offered a portion of the ring’s determined resale value.
  • Popular online marketplaces (Etsy, eBay, Shopify): Platforms like these allow you to sell items directly to customers, which can increase return; however it also means handling all of the setup, marketing and sales interactions. This can be time consuming and frustrating having to wait for a customer to be interested, and ultimately it may not sell at all.
  • Online direct gold and diamond buyers: Companies like Cash for Gold USA are not retailers, but material buyers. Instead of taking partial pay or waiting for customers to purchase your item, you’ll be offered fair market value based on the ring’s metals and diamond’s resale value instantly upon appraisal.

Determining What a Wedding Ring Is Worth

In a retail setting, the price of a wedding ring is based on its physical components as well as its craftsmanship, brand and aesthetic value. When you sell a wedding ring online to a company like Cash for Gold USA, its value will be based solely on the materials it’s comprised of.

For precious metals like gold, silver and platinum, the price is determined by multiplying the material’s weight by the current market price per ounce. For diamonds, the market value is also based on an assessment of the stone’s quality.

Four key factors that affect a diamond’s quality and value include:

  • Carat: The weight of the diamond
  • Clarity: How cloudy or clear the material is, indicating flaws in the crystal
  • Color: The stone’s hue (and its richness)
  • Cut: The way the diamond is faceted, creating its sparkle

Once all stones have been appraised, their value will be added to that of the precious metals, giving the full material price of the ring.

The Key to Getting the Best Price for Your Wedding Ring

The most important aspect of getting a good price for your wedding ring is choosing the right buyer. Unless your wedding ring has a very rare artistic or cultural significance that may interest collectors, a materials buyer will be your best choice. When you sell to Cash for Gold USA, we’ll give you the highest price, guaranteed.

If you have the ability to wait and watch the market, it’s also ideal to sell your ring when the prices for its materials are high. Prices fluctuate constantly, but it’s possible to follow trends and take advantage of a bubble.
