December 3, 2010 by Administrator 

If you want to sell gold or diamond jewelry to a San Diego buyer of used gift assets, then the following media special reports can help you make a more informed decision. There are many gold scams around these days, with unscrupulous gold buyers and other businesses trying to take advantage of the public. Don’t get caught in one of these scams. They are easy to identify if you just take the time to learn their tricks. Likewise, an ethical San Diego gold jewelry buyer or gold refinery is also easy to spot if you know what signs and behavior to look for. After watching the following videos and reading the tips here at the San Diego Luxury Pawn Shop Report, you should be confident that you can avoid getting caught in a San Diego scam when selling your scrap gold, gold rings, and other gold jewelry.

In this video, reporter Sasha Foo of KUSI TV interviews Carl Blackburn of San Diego Jewelry Buyers. Blackburn, an internationally recognized fine jewelry designer and prominent buyer of precious gift assets in San Diego, gives San Diegans advice on how to avoid gold scams. Ms. Foo also discusses the problems that have been documented by the Better Business Bureau when it comes to mailing in your gold to a nationally advertised gold buyer. She also emphasizes how consumers should not sell gemstone gold jewelry to just any gold buyer but one who specializes in buying second-hand jewelry set with diamonds or other precious gemstones.

The CBS Early Show tackles the issue of how to sell your gold without getting scammed in this special report that should be viewed by anyone who wants to sell gold in San Diego. Conducted by correspondent Susan Koeppen, the report mentions how thousands of people around the country have lodged complaints with the Better Business Bureau and State Consumer Affairs Departments. They investigate the allegations of rip offs by trying to sell a gold ring to three different kinds of buyers: a mail-in company, a gold party, and a local gold buyer in New York City. The results are very informative. Note that in this video that gold was selling at over $900 an ounce, which was driving more people to cashing in their gold. Today, the price is over $1300 an ounce, sending even more people into the offices of San Diego gold buyers or posting their gold to a mail-in gold buyer. But not all gold buyers are the same, as this report shows well.

In this WBAL TV report the news team investigates whether you can really make big bucks when selling used gold jewelry. The hidden camera investigation of gold buyers in Maryland shows that, like in San Diego, it all depends on who you ask. Choosing the best gold buyer in whatever area you live could mean a difference of hundreds of dollars. Not surprisingly, the team discovers that the best offer comes from a local luxury pawnbroker that specializes in buying fine jewelry, while the lowest offer comes from a mail-in gold company. The key advice here is to know exactly what you’re selling before looking for a gold buyer.
