Where can you sell your gold in the city of New Orleans?


Where can you sell your gold in the city of New Orleans?


What are your options for selling gold and sterling silver jewelry in Louisiana?


Your options are typically:

  • Pawn shop
  • Sell it yourself on Craigslist or eBay
  • Mail in Cash For Gold company
  • New Orleans Silver and Gold


Your first thought may be to go to a local pawn shop and see what they can offer you, unfortunately this is usually not very much. Pawn shops often have many employees and expensive rent to pay, i.e. high overhead.  If you are looking for a loan and eventually want to get your item back, then perhaps a traditional pawn shop is for you.

However, if you don’t want to own the item anymore and just want to sell it, then you might want to think twice about selling to a pawn shop.  Pawn shops offer a quick and easy way to borrow small amounts of money that you otherwise couldn’t get if you tried to borrow from a bank or similar institution.

But if you just want to sell the item and get cash in hand, then where do you go?

You could use a mail in cash for gold service, but you have to go through the trouble of waiting for them to send you the packing envelop and then wait until your package gets to them and wait for them to appraise everything for them to pay you. That could take weeks! What if you need money right now?

Enter New Orleans Silver and Gold Precious Metals Exchange, an alternative to a traditional pawn shop.  At New Orleans Silver and Gold we can offer you an immediate appraisal of your items based on the intrinsic value of the precious metal the item is made with and give you cash money that day!


As a precious metals exchange we do not offer loans, we only buy and sell fine sterling silver and gold jewelry, fine Swiss watches, gold and silver coins, broken and used jewelry, pre-owned fine designer jewelry such as Mignon Faget, Tiffany & Co, Lety G, as well as sterling silver flatware and serving ware.


Is now a good time to sell your gold and silver?


The answer to this question is complicated and, it depends on your personal situation. If you have medical bills, vet bills, student loans, late on a car payment, child support, if you have speeding or parking tickets, need a down payment for something or just want to make some extra cash fast, then sell your old gold and silver. If you have fine gold and silver jewelry that you don’t want and it’s just sitting around in a jewelry box , but you need cash fast, don’t take out a high interest loan at a pawn shop, bank or a cash advance business.


Pawn shops, banks and cash advance places will give you a high interest loan, meaning you’ll have to pay back MORE than what you originally borrowed! It’s much better to sell some old, broken unused fine sterling silver and gold jewelry and get cash that you don’t have to pay back or pay interest on.


New Orleans Silver and Gold Precious Metals Exchange is the ultimate alternative to pawn shops, mail in companies and check cashing/ cash advance businesses when it comes to selling your fine sterling silver and gold jewelry. We operate by appointment only, so no waiting in long lines. Our office is located in a super secure building in the Central Business District and is perfectly safe with plenty of parking! During your appointment we can offer you a private, one on one consultation and do everything right on front you of you! No “going to the back” to check stones and metal purity.


If you are unsure if what you have is genuine gold or sterling silver jewelry, coins, flatware or serving ware, you can always call or email us pictures of the items and we can tell you what you have over the phone so you don’t waste your time.


We also offer appraisal services!
