Are you considering pawning jewelry at pawn shops? We’re sure you want to get as much money as possible for it. Let’s go over some top tips to get the most out of your jewelry.
The first thing to look for is to figure out what you can pawn. Remember, if you miss a payment then you may lose your item.
If you pawn something very valuable or sentimental, just remember losing it is a possibility.
Another thing to remember is to clean your jewelry before taking it into the shop. Most drug stores will sell jewelry cleaners. This will remove some of the tarnish or grime. You can even use a toothbrush and scrub off the dead skin and lotion. Prioritize areas around diamonds or stones, as these are like magnets for things like dead skin. Don’t be too aggressive, or you may pull the diamond or stone out of its place.
If you use a cleaning solution, be sure to rinse it off thoroughly and dry it. Don’t do it too hard, as gold can easily be bent and damaged. Finally, bring any paperwork or original documentation.
Be sure to remember these tips on your next trip to the pawn shop. View the video linked above to learn more about getting the most when you’re pawning jewelry at pawn shops.
