How to Tell If Your Jewelry is Valuable
The monetary value of jewelry can fluctuate. We might think something is valuable, and find out it is worth nothing. There are a few things you can check for before you hand purchase anything, and that is to simply bring your diamond ring in question to a jewelry appraiser like Gems N’ Loans Dana Point.

When you acquire a new piece of jewelry, it is good to look for hallmarks. One thing to check is the metal content of a piece, and the country of origin, designer, or manufacturer of the jewelry. Those markings are usually located on the clasp of a necklace, the inside of a ring or bracelet, or the post of an earring. Generally gold and silver are heavier metals than their fake counterparts like brass and pewter.

Keep in mind that solid gold jewelry is very smooth, heavy and consistent throughout. A gold colored chain that has a darker color or even a silvery color showing through on parts that see heavy wear, this is likely a gold plated chain and not very valuable. When solid gold or platinum jewelry wears down, the part showing through should still be the same color.
