Many people find themselves with jewellery they no longer wear or inherited items that just lie in forgotten in dusty boxes. Oftentimes it is small items such as cufflinks which are most prone to this phenomenon and they simply get lost over time. But what if you could sell your cufflinks and get a little extra income from an item which would otherwise be ignored. Increasingly, more people are taking this option, particularly with gold cufflinks. However, to sell gold cufflinks takes research and an understanding of the market. This article is intended to tell you a little about gold cufflinks and their value, where to sell gold cufflinks and how to sell gold cufflinks so that you can make the most of your unwanted items.
WHAT ARE GOLD CUFFLINKS?
The National Cufflink Society (yes, there is one…) say that there is evidence that images of cufflinks were found in hieroglyphics in the ancient Egyptian tomb of King Tutankhamen but the first mention of cufflinks as we know them came from the 1700s. They were considered a luxury item, made from gold and silver set with gemstones and they were all made by hand.

YOUR OPTIONS TO SELL GOLD CUFFLINKS

Sell Gold Cufflinks Online
There are a myriad of online buyers who will make you an offer on your gold cufflinks. Some will provide a quote upfront; others will require you to send the item to them first. Oftentimes they ask you to send them your cufflinks through the standard postal system – so remember to be aware of what tracking and insurance is in place before you send your cufflinks in. Equally, many people will try peer-to-peer auction sites. These can be a great way to sell your gold cufflinks but keep in mind that everyone’s always looking for a deal! Importantly, be aware of any security guidance offered by the service and by the police before selling gold items to strangers.
Selling Gold Cufflinks at Auction
Selling gold cufflinks at auction is easy because the auctioneers conduct the sale process for you but with any auction, the final sale price is non-negotiable. As the auctioneer calls ‘SOLD’, your gold cufflinks are sold! One thing we will mention is when you are choosing an auction house to sell your gold cufflinks, make sure they tell you clearly what their fee and commission structure is. You may also set a reserve price but if the auction doesn’t get that high, you will have to look for other ways to sell your gold cufflinks.
Selling Your Gold Cufflinks to a Pawnbroker
Selling gold cufflinks to a pawnbroker could be considered an ‘old fashioned’ thing to do but if you are looking for a quick sale for your gold cufflinks, it may be the right option for you. Many people use pawnbrokers to sell gold, sell jewellery or to sell engagement ring or a luxury watch. They can offer you a price below their true market value and if you don’t return to claim the cufflinks within (typically) 6-12 months, the gold cufflinks become their property and they can sell them on at a profit. It’s worth nothing that if you want to buy your gold cufflinks back, you will have to repay the loan, plus the interest accrued.
Selling Gold Cufflinks to a Dealer
Gold cufflinks are highly prized items and a dealer will be able to give you a true market valuation. However as the word ‘dealer’ suggests, they may offer to buy your gold cufflinks but they will be looking to sell them on at a profit so be mindful that you may be able to get a higher price for your gold cufflinks elsewhere.
