Ways To Make Extra Pennies - ♥

This is a different post for my readers today but it is also a money making option if you've ever wanted to make a few extra pennies.

For as long as I can remember I have always loved jewelry, and I have a very special place for all my important and favorite pieces, which is in my Jewry box below

My mum passed away a few years ago and she left behind a bit of jewelry which was left to me.

I kept all of her rings and a few personal items she used to wear a lot because they were just beautiful and I thought I could hand them down to my own children and there children ect.
I like to be sentimental like that, 
So I was left with these left over pieces of gorgeous jewelry I wasn't going to ever wear and I didn't know what to do with it all.

I'd heard about companies where you can cash in your jewelry for money, and companies such as Cash For Gold do this, making it really easy to send your jewelry off and receive payment for how much it is worth.

I was a bit worried about sending my jewery at first because I didn't want it to get lost in the post, but they did send a insured envelope by royal mail to guarantee it go there safe, I took it to my local post office and it got there surprisingly quick, and I actually got a call the day after I sent it, I was amazed how quickly they got it, 

I got a cheque in the post a few days later and popped the money towards the holiday me and my fiance had booked for that year, I didn't feel guilty as there's no use having jewelry lying about that will never be worn and I'm sure my mum wanted me to have done the right thing with it, which I did and I had a lovely holiday that year an it helped out a lot as we did struggle that year after a few mishaps and that extra money did make a difference.

I know some people do dismiss these companies a lot but through my experience I would actually go to them again if I ever needed to.
Always make sure the company you go is a reputable one though and do read up on them first before you do go sending your jewelry off.

Some websites do have the option of giving you a rough estimate of how much you item of jewelry is worth, by asking how much it weighs and the carat ect so you can make up your mind before sending it off and know your getting an honest price.

They are a great money making option if your ever short for cash and I would 100% recommend them.

Has anyone else ever traded there gold in for cash before?
