Today I will talk about how to buy gold, where and at what gold price in Canda. The topic is large, so I will try to state it only on the merits. If you have questions, ask them in the comments under the article.

Jewelry store

The most obvious source of gold that first comes to mind for an ordinary buyer. A jewelry store is the easiest way to buy jewelry, but not always the most profitable one.

    They are on every corner

    Sales assistants will help with the purchase.

    The risk of buying a fake is minimal.
  • Credit / installment / parole

Today, jewelry sells gold jewelry on average at 2500-3500 rubles per gram of 585 samples.

No one limits jewelry stores to the wrap they can make, so the price per gram of jewelry on one counter can vary greatly. There are shops that offer to choose second jewelry absolutely free if you buy the first at 10,000 rubles per gram. You can read more about this in the article The 22K gold rate of gold in the store.

How to make a bargain

  • Do not buy jewelry with huge stones if you do not understand them. Most likely you will overpay for them.
  • Favorable price in a jewelry store will be the one that is closer to 2000 rubles per gram.

And do not forget to pay attention to the sample of gold. All prices referred to in this article apply only to 585 samples. 375 samples should cost 1,500-2,000 rubles per gram.

Buy gold at a pawnshop

If you have matured enough, and are more afraid of an empty wallet than ghosts, then you should go through the pawnshops. In pawnshops, you can find the same jewelry as in a jewelry store, but at a more humane price.

Pros of buying gold at a pawnshop:

  • Benefit.
    Often you do not save badly when buying

    counter of a large pawnshop is not inferior in variety to a jewelry store and is constantly updated

    To know that there are different samples at different prices. To be able to check the age of the jewelry will also not be amiss.
  • Ghosts. 🙂

The price of gold in a pawnshop

Today, the price per gram in pawnshops is an average of 1800-2200 rubles per gram of 585 samples.

Jewelry with diamonds will also be much cheaper than in a jewelry store.

How to choose gold at a pawnshop

Although the price per gram in a pawnshop is usually not so wide, I advise you to use a calculator and independently calculate the price per gram in a product. To do this, you need to divide the entire product by its price.

Do not take old rings 583 samples with large stones. These stones are not natural, and very heavy. You buy them at the price of gold. Such a purchase is far from being “reasonable” or “profitable”.

If you plan to buy exactly 583 samples, then I advise you not to forget that:

  • The age of such jewelry is 25 years or more.
    Look carefully at the degree of wear.
  • 583 a test of gold is no better and no worse 585
    In fact, it is one and the same
  • 583 samples are not a rarity and it will not become soon.
    These jewelry are not evaluated anywhere other than ordinary scrap gold. Resell them somewhere at a higher price will not work
