A: You can sell all kinds of gold here, at Oceanside Jewelers. We pay cash for dental gold, gold coins and jewelry in all colors and karats.
A: Gold coins and gold bullion, as well as, silver coins and silver bullion will give you a very close to market price. Diamonds also hold their value, particularly certified diamonds with an EGL (European Gemological Laboratory) or a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certificate. Jewelry metals including gold, silver and platinum will also provide returns close to market prices.
A: The quantity of gold by weight and the quality of the gold itself is what affects the price you get when you sell gold jewelry for cash. The condition of the jewelry or coins does not matter as much as the quantity of metal and gemstones.
For diamonds and other gemstones, we base our stone appraisal prices on the Rappaport Index Sheets which are the industry standard. We will have a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) graduate gemologist grade the stones for color, clarity and quality of the cut and base our appraisal on that.

A: Due to the high volume of jewelry that is being sold on the market, the majority of jewelry is being broken down to its component gemstones and metals and being recycled into new jewelry. This is very environmentally sound. Some very fine and/or antique jewelry will get resold as is.
That being said, if you have a piece that could be sold as is but for personal reasons you would rather it be melted down, please let us know.
A: In general the age or condition of the jewelry does not matter as much as the quantity and quality of metals and gemstones.
A: Yes, we also pay cash for silver, including sterling silver jewelry, sterling silver flatware and utensils, silver coins and silver bullion.
A: Yes, we pay cash for Cartier, Rolex, and other fine watch brands. For the most accurate estimate, it's best to bring watches in so we may fully assess them.
A: Yes — we will apply the full metal value along with a substantially higher percentage of the diamond and gemstone value of your items towards the purchase of jewelry and/or design services at Oceanside Jewelers. The metal and gemstones from your jewelry can also be recycled into new pieces, although due to the way the molding and fabrication process works we may need to add additional metal to your trade-in to produce a comparable piece.
A: Yes, our assessment goes by market prices. Our computer system gives us real time current market prices updated every 20 minutes.
