    Absolutely! I believe gold is really high right now so you can get a lot of money for it. Take everything you have, scraps, and other stuff you dont wear to a reputable trader and one who doesnt charge for melting it so you get the whole profit. I used to work in a jewelry store and we had tons of customers do this. They got back sooooo much money! One lady brought in her old gold fillings and got back 1K! I have a lot of gold to sell too, I just have to do it already!

    Be very careful if you are getting rid of something with stone in it and you want the stones. My mom did this with her old wedding set b/c my dad got her a new set for their anniversary the year before. She wanted the stones taken out so she could keep them and they stole the stones from her. After hours and hours on the phone with them, they figured out how much they owed my parents and they got a couple hundred back for the stones. I guess the guy thought he would be slick and sell the stones to make some extra cash in hopes that parents would forget!

    I have a single earring with a sapphire in it. Was hoping I'd get a few extra bucks for it :x lol FI has a Cartier solid gold lighter. He wants to sell it (online it's going for like $3500), but I keep telling him to keep it. Not sure. We're going to go to Boca... there's a gold buyer in the mall!
