How to sell your gold in Vancouver, Washington

Since 1917, Erik Runyan Jewelers has built its business on customer service and trust. Those twin pillars make up the foundation of what we do each and every day we open the doors of our downtown Vancouver store.

Naturally, they extend to the gold-buying portion of our business. When it comes to selling your gold, it’s a good idea to avoid gambling with unknown brokers in the online world. Certainly, there are reputable companies out there, but wouldn’t it be better to entrust the gold-buying process to a member of the community — someone you could actually speak to in person?

Tips on Selling Gold and Jewelry in Vancouver WA

While you’re thinking about what — and to whom — you’d like to sell your gold, here are a few wise tips on selling gold in Vancouver (and anywhere else, for that matter).

Sell to jewelers.

Jewelers are experts in their field. They’re more likely to give you top-notch service and an honest appraisal of your gold and other jewelry items. This means avoiding pawn shops and online gold buyers — neither of which provide a personalized touch to the process of selling gold and jewelry. Plus, they’re both unlikely to offer a fair price, since their goal is to make the biggest profit possible. And, unfortunately, both of those options often cater to — and take advantage of — people who feel like they’re in desperate need of cash and so are willing to accept just about any price for their precious heirlooms. Talk to ERJ first! You might be surprised by how much we can offer for certain items.

Do your homework.

While an ERJ appraisal will take most of the guesswork out of the gold- and jewelry-selling process, it’s helpful to shop around before making a decision. Make sure you do your homework so you have at least a ballpark idea of what an item is worth. ERJ will always treat you fair and square; if you have an offer from another buyer that beats what ERJ is willing to offer, then go for it!

Consider the destination.

It’s easy enough to pawn a cherished heirloom. But there’s something to be said for having a precious item left in our care so that we can (perhaps) refurbish it so that it will live on, enjoyed by others far into the future. A good way to know about dealer reputations is to visit a reputable dealer, such as those that are part of Jewelers of America. Founded in 1906, Jewelers of America works hard to advance and promote the professionalism and ethics of the jewelry industry. Erik Runyan Jewelers is proud to be recognized by Jewelers of America.

One last thing: Our offers don’t necessarily have anything to do with the current price of gold. What we’re able to offer for your gold and jewelry is based on our current inventory, the time of year (season), and the quality and rarity of the item.
