This is a question we get asked almost daily. Gold is valuable no matter the condition. All Pawn Shops base what they pay on the spot price of gold broken or not. To most shops your jewelry is worth its gold weight and nothing more. Most precious and semi-precious stones have very little value because they are not rare. Diamonds are rare and have a substantial value based on the four C's and at least a 1/2 carat. So just realize we will offer a Pawn Loan on any real gold and it is the same price quoted usually. Now for us we will pay more for a ring if we think it will sale for more than its gold weight. Just remember the same rules apply when we Pawn or purchase gold jewelry that is not scrap which seems misleading but we value gold based on the daily spot price and nothing more. Here is an article that details the majority of items you can pawn. I hope this makes sense and answers any questions you may have.
