I’m in the shop of the Jewelry Store talking to the Jeweler one day.
The Manager comes back carrying some Small White Objects in his Hand.
I take a Closer Look and see that he’s Holding a Handful of Teeth!
“What the Heck…?”
That’s my Initial Response!
“GROSS!” is my Second!
He goes over to the Jeweler’s Vice, puts a Tooth in and starts Crushing it. “What are you doing?” I say in Morbid Fear.
He pulls the crushed debris out of the Vice and holds up a Small Piece of Gold. “Their Grandpa Died,” he said motioning to the customer’s at the front of the store. “The old man had a lot of Gold Fillings.”
“So they brought them in for you to crush?” I say. “Yep,” He smiles, “They need the money“…
“They’re Selling the Gold!”
Well I’ll be…
So if you’re looking for some extra money, then by all means, start looking for Gold!
Lots of people actually have Gold just waiting to be turned into cash and they don’t even know it. Gold Coins, Gold Rings, Gold Watches, Heirlooms, Gold Grillz, you name it!
You can even get Gold from Jewelry Repairs.
For example, if you have a Gold Ring sized down, ask the Jeweler to keep the little piece of Gold that the Jeweler’s removed from your ring. If you get your Bracelet or Necklace shortened, keep that extra piece of Gold. If you have broken Chains or Clasps, don’t throw them away, save them up!
A Little Gold Adds up!
You’d be surprised at how those little pieces of scrap Gold add up to hundreds of green backs. Lots of people dig through their Jewelry boxes looking for odds and ends to scrap. If you’re not wearing your rings, chains, earrings or pendants, sell them! Make some money! Pay some bills!
I sold some Gold Jewelry a couple years ago. Some heavy Gold Chains, a couple broken Gold Bracelets, A bent Gold Ring and a Gold Tie Chain. I ended up getting $1200 for the 14kt Gold.
Now that’s a lot of Chump Change!
Take a look at what Gold Scraps you have. You’d be surprised at how fast it all adds up.
And if all else fails you can always go to the Dentist and have your Gold Fillings Removed!
Or you can just wait it out like the customer’s Grandpa did. Not that it helped him any, he’s dead…
But you can never say that he didn’t keep his money where his mouth was!
