Values based on average weights**
If you’re unsure how to value jewellery or would simply like to know how much your gold jewellery is worth, you’ll find all of the information you need on this page.
How to Value Jewellery
When it comes to establishing the value of jewellery, the two pieces of information you need are the weight of the item and the current value of gold. Multiplying these two amounts will give you a general idea of how much you can expect to get for your jewellery, but there are also additional aspects to consider, such as the condition of the item and the fineness of the gold (or the number of carats).
The latter is especially crucial, as higher carat items contain a larger percentage of pure gold and, therefore, are worth more per gram. So, in this regard, the weight of an item isn’t the be-all and end-all when it comes to its value. For example, if you have a 9-carat item that weighs 10 grams and a 24-carat item that weighs 5 grams, the latter will be worth significantly more due to it containing more pure gold.
Gold Jewellery Values
The value of gold changes on a frequent — pretty much daily — basis, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the most recent trends in the market to ensure that you sell your items for the best gold price available. To give you a better idea of how much money you can make from selling your gold jewellery, use our Gold Value Calculator.
Every item of jewellery is different and will vary in terms of weight, so it’s difficult to establish precisely how much you will receive. With that said, in the table above you’ll find a few estimated gold jewellery values based on the average weight of certain items.
Jewellery Value of Gold Rings
Gold rings — and any jewellery, for that matter — vary massively when it comes to shape, size and purity. To give you a basic idea of how much gold rings are worth, we’ll use an average wedding band as an example. These types of rings are usually 18ct gold and weigh around 6-7 grams, for which you could fetch about £120-£140. Men’s wedding bands tend to be a little bit heavier (weighing 8-15 grams) and are worth between £160 and £310.
Jewellery Value of Gold Necklaces
Necklaces differ enormously in style. Some are dainty and elegant, whereas others are chunkier, which naturally means that some weigh more than others. As an example, let’s say you have a gold chain weighing 10 grams. Depending on the purity, you could fetch anywhere between £100-£270 (9ct-24ct).
Selling Gold Watches
Gold watches are somewhat of a specialist item when compared to rings and necklaces, as they often contain a range of other metals, which means that the weight isn’t necessarily a true reflection of its value. This isn’t true for high-end gold watches, such as Rolexes, which are made entirely of gold and can weigh well over 100 grams. Many of these watches are made from 18ct gold, which means that you could receive at least £2,000.
In many cases, we receive high-end watches that are in good enough condition for resale — in these cases, we’ll provide a reasonable resale price, rather than the basic scrap value.
