Chesterfield residents trade in gold for cash

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Strapped for cash... Why not get rid of some old jewelry? Getting cash for gold is the latest trend to get money in your pocket. But are people willing to part with their jewelry? And just how much money are we talking about?

In the time we spent with one company a woman walked away with more than $200. A guy with more than $150 and just for selling a few things like old rings.

An ad in the paper caught Debby Moro's attention.

"I thought, I think I've got some jewelry lying around that I don't want," she said.

She scrounged up this sad set of gold.

"Thought it would be a good way to clean out my closet and maybe fill up my wallet a little bit," said Debby.

Debby's the latest customer at National Redemption's set-up inside a Chesterfield Holiday Inn.

"We go back and we refine it back to bouillon form where it's traded back on the stock market. People are thinking pawnshop you know the dim-lit room with the guy with the cigar behind the cage saying "Oh I'll give you $50 for that" and it's nothing like that," said Joe Marshall of National Redemption. 

All Joe Marshall needs is a scale and four bowls to separate the gold by karats.

"This one sale all together was probably about $300," he said.

One woman walked away with $220 in less than 15 minutes. So what's Debby's pot of gold?

"Makes it $83 all together. Okay. Good cleaning out my jewelry drawer for that," Debby said.

Her $83 are already spent.

"School clothes are starting to creep up on the to-do lists- so perhaps that," she said.

But that isn't keeping her from having champagne wishes and caviar dreams.

"I have some jewelry that my husband doesn't know- some old boyfriends gave to me. Maybe I'll bring that back in," Debby said.

National Redemption will be in Chesterfield County July 24 & July 25 at Holiday Inn at Joger Center, 10800 Midlothian Turnpike.
