Subsequently, one may also ask, is vintage gold worth more?
If the gemstones on your gold jewelry are real, they could be worth a substantial sum when sold separately from the gold itself. On the other hand, certain vintage (older than 25 years) or antique (older than 100 years) pieces could have greater value when sold intact.
How do I know what my jewelry is worth?
Jewelry appraisals, cash value, and the truth
- Find the daily gold spot price in dollars per troy ounce (a website like kitco.com is good for that).
- Convert that price into dollars per gram by dividing it by 31.1 which equals $41.80 per gram.
- Multiply that by the gold purity of the jewelry.
