Hi. I am going to be moving in a couple of weeks and so I've been having a thorough clear out. My partner is fed up of us moving so much 'crap' as he refers to it!

I have accumulated four or five gold rings (with jewels) from family and random sales over the years, which I loved wearing. Now however, I have an engagement ring to wear and they don't fit on my other fingers!

So, I thought now might be the time to sell them. They're not worth mega bucks but all are 18 carat and have small real jewels including rubies, diamonds and pearls.

Please let me know where you think the best place to get a good price for them would be.

Thanks!

Gold rings as such hold very little re-sale value, best you can hope for at a "high" street shop is scrap value

I got the best price from the Manchester Gold Company . The chap came round to the house, weighed my gold in fronty of me so I knew exactly wha I had and paid me 200 more than the best online offer I'd had......and 250 more than my local jewellers. I dont know how people can post their valuables off!!

Dont go to UK Bullion, they try and rip you off, maybe not with scrap gold but i took some coins to sell and they tried to tell me they were worth half what they actually were. Its a good job i had got a valuation elsewhere beforehand otherwise i would have been none the wiser, i would try Bramalls Gold Room in Hillsborough.

The Chapel antiques centre on Broadfield Road is the best place. My dad deals with weighing the gold there and I've sold some of my own stuff as scrap there. The lady only makes about a 10p profit per gram once she takes it to the refinery. Definitely the best price in Sheffield

I don’t have any idea about it but I would like to suggest that before selling , go to the nearby jewelry store and get an idea about the price. It will help you in negotiation.

Chapel Jewellers gives good prices.

If the rings aren't in scrap condition though, you might get a little more on eBay.

You could try Herbert Brown, just opposite the Peace Gardens in Sheffield. They display a sign in their window with the current price that they will give you. Haven't tried it myself yet, but you can try for nothing.
