    Hello all
    I have some random diamond rings, broches etc. Where is the best place to take them to sell as i have no idea what the diamonds etc are worth?
    Appreciate any advice

    Bullion Now in Collins St, is good for selling scrap gold.

    They will pay you for silver and gold content, not for gems. There are diamond traders in the same building but not sure if they buy from public.

    They will give you the best price for your scrap. Make sure you tell them that you found them through Silver Stackers to get the special SS rate

    I’d imagine if you took a ring to scrap/bullion dealer, the best you can get is spot?

    Value of stones are subjective, so it’s hard to tell what it is worth, but a nice looking jewellery should get you a premium if you have time.

    If it was me I’d try to find out what the stones are worth and sell as jewellery, here, eBay Facebook etc.

    If the stones are higher quality, I’d even get the worthless valuation certificate.

    Small stones of medium to lessor quality is worthless in secondhand market by itself.

    You will maybe get more if you list them on here. You can easily ask spot + 10% and maybe more for nice items. It would be a shame to scrap them.

    Depending where you go, you'll get 87% to 92% of spot for scrap. You need to have a good quality stone in order to get any money for it. Sadly, that's just the way it all works. If someone offers you spot for scrap, then take it!

    If you have any vintage or antique jewellery I would be interested above spot, even well above spot.
