Appraisals can be confusing. Say your husband gets you a new ring for your 10 year anniversary. It’s nice. You want to add it to your homeowner’s insurance policy, but they want an appraisal in case there is ever a claim filed and they have to replace it. They want to know the ‘market value’ of your piece of jewelry. SO, you find a professional appraiser, which does cost, and they tell you what it’s ‘worth’.
This is where it gets confusing, because the appraisal has absolutely no bearing on the true cash market value of your jewelry item.
We typically see jewelry cash out between 5 to 30% of their appraised value. People seem to get caught up in the jewelry store hype, or the fancy seal on their paperwork guaranteeing the value of their appraised jewelry. Bottom line, what someone claims your jewelry item is worth and what it can be sold for in cash are two very different things.
Hope this helps. We pay the highest on your gold, silver, diamonds and jewelry based on the cash market value of your items. We have highly qualified employees that examine your items as well as state of the art evaluating equipment. We don’t guess. We don’t estimate. We are happy to pay the highest – cash on the spot.
It’s February. You can’t help but think about love.
Time to go big. Time to give her a RING!
What does that mean? How do I pick it, where do I go? HOW MUCH DO I SPEND? What does she expect?
So much emotion is involved in picking the right ring. After all, it will last a lifetime. So, before you run off to a jewelry store, and buy something out of your price range because it’s in the name of love, let us at least give you some information to take with you as you search out for that perfect, life-changing ring. As you are being shown beautiful rings, you will most likely be told about the 4 c’s (carat, color, clarity and cut). Sounds good. Surely they know what they’re talking about. After all, it’s what they do for a living. And their diamonds come with “paperwork” that includes some fancy seal, so it must be certified and accurate.
Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. The most accurate certification of a diamond comes from the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). They created the 4 c’s. It is their mission to protect the consumer, to uphold our trust in gems by maintaining the highest of standards by objectively determining the quality of a diamond. Be very careful which lab your diamond is certified from. EGL (European Gemological Laboratory) certificates are notorious for misrepresenting diamonds. Their clarity and color grading can be up to 1-2 grades too high. Some retailers use this overseas lab to their advantage, sell a diamond that appears better on paper than it really is. As you might imagine, people will spend more money on a diamond purchase, but it is something they know the least amount about.
Okay, so you know to look for a GIA certified diamond. But you also need to think about what shape? Size? And color – aren’t they just clear and sparkly? And what are these 4 C’s everyone talks about?
Don’t panic. Don’t get overwhelmed. Here’s the scoop on the 4 C’s.
The 4 C’s that describe a diamond are: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat.
Popular diamond shapes include round, oval, princess-cut, emerald-cut, asscher-cut, marquise-cut, pear-shaped, and heart-shaped diamonds. The majority of diamond engagement rings today are set with a round diamond. And most of the remaining rings are set with princess-cut diamonds.
Different diamond cuts have been developed to best utilize a diamond’s material properties. The cut of a diamond creates a somewhat symmetrical arrangement of facets that modifies the shape and appearance of the diamond. Several cuts have been used when shaping and polishing a diamond with the most common being:
Color is measured on a scale from colorless to shades of color with colorless being the rarest and most expensive. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) use a color grading scale of D-Z, colorless to shades of color respectively. As mentioned above diamonds come in different colors and anything outside this color scale are referred to as “Fancy Colors”. The rarest and most expensive diamonds are considered Fancy Colors which include red, pink, blue, and green.
Clarity is judged upon the amount of inclusions and blemishes a diamond has. An inclusion is growth crystals inside a diamond whereas blemishes can be scratches and nicks on the diamond’s surface. Clarity in diamonds is graded using the following scale:
Carat weight (ct.) is the unit of measurement to weight a diamond. One carat equals 1/142nd of an ounce, or 1/5th of a gram. Diamonds are weighed into a thousandth of a carat(0.001) and then rounded to the nearest hundredth. Diamond sizes are also referred to as “Points”. One carat is divided into 100 points, each point is 1/100th of a carat. A “10-point” diamond weighs 1/10th of a carat and a 50-point stone weighs half a carat.
Hope this helps… Whether it’s an engagement ring or something new to let her know how much you still love her, best of luck to all of you that are in LOVE and looking to surprise that special person in your life. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have. And if you’re needing some extra cash to buy that special ring or new diamond necklace, we pay the highest whether you’re selling your gold, silver, diamonds and jewelry or getting a 0% loan on it.
And we hope you like our Facebook page, so you’re sure not to miss out on any of our promotions or giveaways!
Dream Big 2014 – How’s it going? January is almost over… have you made any progress?
Don’t forget, we can help you make your dreams a reality. So grab your unwanted gold, silver and diamonds that you have lying around your house gathering dust, stop by and we’ll give you cash on the spot. And if you’re not ready to sell your items – we offer loans at 0% for 60 days for new loan customers.
So, what is on my ‘Dream Big 2014′ list, you might ask? Great question!
I’ve got lots on my ‘Dream Big 2014‘ list this year, and I’m sure I’ll be sharing more of them as the year goes on - but here’s where am I with one of them. I’ve started the year off eating healthy. As clean/fresh as possible – but not really following any ‘trendy’ eating plan (been there & done that).
But today, I’m sharing part of my love of fresh foods with a Giveaway: $50 Whole Foods gift card. (Details at bottom)
As I dug into clean eating last year… I was a bit extreme with it (little fruit, no dairy, no legumes)…so yes, it didn’t last. That’s why this year, I’m eating clean and fresh as possible, but what feels right for my body. And I’m loving it. I know it must be the right thing, when I’m suddenly craving an apple to satisfy a sweet tooth rather than a nutritionally lacking treat.
So, here’s another sign it must be working. True story.
I walked into Whole Foods the other day for 1 thing. Chicken Sausage. To get to it, you have to walk through the produce section. Uh oh. It’s all so colorful – I love it! But my fridge is already full… I only need the 1 thing. Stay focused. I’ve almost made it through when I pass by the Cauliflower. Now… I don’t like cauliflower. I’ve maybe eaten it twice in my life. It should be easy to walk right by without a thought. But I had to stop. It looked so stinkin’ pretty and I suddenly had a craving for cauliflower! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON WITH ME??? Next thing I know, I’m buying cauliflower. What now? What do I do with it once I’m home? It can only set out so long looking pretty. (I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture!)
Well, last night I cooked it. I basically made a cauliflower rice! It was soooo yummy and my kids even ate it. (I even hid some celery in it – they never knew ) There you go. I’m hooked.
So, my thought was… I want to share my love of fresh foods and part of my Dream Big 2014. We’re giving away a $50 Whole Foods gift card.

Loans. A loaded word. Where do I go for one? Will I qualify? What are the terms? How long will it take???
•Whether you’re going through a rough stretch and need a little something to get you through.
•Want to start a new business, but need some start up cash.
This are the benefits we offer our loan customers:
• 100% approval. Everyone is pre-approved. Your credit is not a factor. Our loans are collateral loans and the amount is based on the value of your Gold, Silver, Platinum or Diamonds. Whether it’s brand new items or broken, mismatched items – it doesn’t matter.
• 0% Interest Loans for 60 days for new loan customers! And if you need more time than that to pay us back, that’s ok, too. After your initial 60 day loan contract expires, you have the option of setting up a traditional loan with interest due monthly until the loan is paid back. That’s a total of 90 days before your first interest payment! (state regulated interest rates apply).
•Fast – The process generally takes less than 10 minutes to evaluate your items and give you our offer. That’s right, no waiting. You leave with cash in hand.
We loan top dollar - no worries there, either.
It’s Friday, and the 13th – definitely a day for a GIVEAWAY!
So, we’re celebrating today. We got to give 2 great prizes to 2 of our customers this week. If you haven’t looked into our Golden T-Club referral program – you SHOULD! 3 simple reasons:
1. Tulsa Gold & Gems pays the highest – so why wouldn’t you share that great news with your friends and family.

3. As a new customer, they get to enter our monthly drawing (AWESOME prizes: iPad, $500 Visa gift card, $500 Walmart gift card – just to name a few). And whoever WINS – their friend who referred them wins too and gets to pick a prize as well!!!
Also… I found out that a sweet customer called yesterday to find out that if she stopped by, would someone be able to help her into the store – as she is handicapped. Well, of course we helped her. She was quite excited after we paid her a nice sum of money for her unwanted jewelry and she mentioned that she was trying to get a little extra cash because it was her 38th wedding anniversary and she wanted to get her husband something nice. Obviously, warmed the bosses heart and he gave her some gift certificates to a local restaurant to add to their celebration. He’s a great guy. (But don’t tell him I said that.)
So…to end the week – I’ve got a fun giveaway – $25 gift card to R Bar & Grill. Fun atmosphere, they’ve got Sunday brunch if that’s your thing. Date night! Girls night! Meet the guys to watch a game! Have some fun on us.

Gold is up! This makes me happy
I had a broken necklace pendant that I wanted to turn back into cash. I usually sell at Tulsa Gold and Silver at 41st and Sheridan. I went there yesterday and dealt with ex weatherman Mike Anderson. Though my pendant was clearly marked 14k Mike told me it only tested out 10k. After he went behind the counter and weighed it he punched on a calculator and without telling me what it weighed or showing me the calculator tape he offered me $25. Something didn’t feel right so I walked out keeping my gold.
Today I was working out South and on my lunch break decided to test out Tulsa Gold and Gems. Jim West helped me and weighed and tested my gold and offered me $46. ALMOST DOUBLE!. Plus I could clearly see what my piece of gold weighed on my ticket and all done right in front of me. I am convinced Tulsa Gold and Gems is THE BEST place to sell my gold and silver and gems and wont waste my time going to Tulsa gold and silver anymore. THANKS
Gold is UP – YAY! But so is gas – BOO!
