How do I know if my items are real gold, silver, or platinum?

We determine the purity of each piece of gold by going through a three-step process. We will test whether or not each piece is magnetic, has a proper hallmark stamp, and finally we will file into each piece and test with a solution. After performing these three steps, we will be able to determine whether or not your piece is real and the karatage of each piece. Remember, just because your gold looks real and has a stamp, it doesn't necessarily mean it's authentic. If you have any questions and would like us to determine the authenticity of your items, simply bring them into our store and one of our qualified professional precious metals specialists will assess them. We offer FREE appraisals and there's no obligation to sell. Please note that your items will be damaged in the testing process.

How much will I get paid? How soon?

We pay you on the spot. When you come into our store to sell your unwanted valuables, you will get paid immediately. We pay with company check or cash and the amount paid is based on the karat and weight of each piece as well as the current market price of the precious metals.

Shouldn't I be able to sell my items for what I paid for them?

It just depends, in some cases you will get more and sometimes less. We purchase items for the purpose of either reselling or melting and refining the precious metals so we do not pay for craftsmanship or colored stones. Jewelry retailers have enormous mark ups due to the numerous resources it takes to create and sell one piece of fine jewelry. But rest assure, 1st Choice Pawn is willing to pay TOP DOLLAR for your unwanted jewelry!

Why can't I sell my items for the amount that my appraisal says they're worth?

The answer to this question depends on whether or not the company or individual who gave your appraisal valued it at the retail store price or the wholesale value. Therefore, an appraisal value is often times misleading when attempting to sell your gold jewelry. Generally an appraisal is the current value of what someone is prepared to pay for a specific piece. For example, what is the value of a classic 1955 Chevy? Is the value the same as the original cost of the metal or is it determined by the amount that someone will pay for it today? The answers to these questions would depend on who is the buyer and who is the seller. Our appraisals are our estimates of the approximate wholesale value of each piece of jewelry. Therefore, an appraisal of a piece of fine jewelry is not a jewelry store's retail price, but instead it's the approximate wholesale value based on the assessments from our precious metal specialists.

At 1st Choice Pawn we understand that today's economy has put a lot of pressure on everyone. Whether you need quick cash to pay your bills, want to get rid of that old gold jewelry that you never wear, or you just want to treat yourself to something nice, 1st Choice Pawn gives you the quick money you need without the hassle. Get the cash you need today and visit 1st Choice Pawn in Knox, Indiana!
