With the extra time on our hands these days, many have been cleaning out and throwing away. But not so fast with your old, broken and unworn jewelry. Cara Reider, owner of Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins, says now is a great time to gather what you have and cash in.

“Gold prices are high so don’t ignore, or, worse, throw out, those broken chains, class rings or things you think are worthless,” says Cara. “Any gold or silver has value and I’ll turn it into cash on the spot.”

Cara will purchase your gold and silver, no matter how small, for immediate cash. She guarantees the highest prices in Ohio. What you thought was junk may have more value than you realized.

“It’s all worth something,” she notes. “It can be difficult to determine if a piece is real gold or silver. They are almost always marked but the marking can be difficult to locate. Bring it all in. I’ll evaluate it, give you a cash estimate, and you can decide to sell or not. You’re under no pressure.”

People have many reasons for bringing items to Cara. Often it’s for the cash value, but sometimes it’s something you’re not wearing but aren’t ready to part with.

“Maybe you want to give new life to an old piece,” says Cara. “I work with several jewelers who can repair or repurpose old, dated jewelry into something you’ll love. Whether you’re selling it or fixing it, I can help.”

Due to the pandemic, Chagrin Falls Gold and Coins is reopening on June 2.
