Recyclers and refiners of gold are seeing a surge in people looking to sell old jewelry, Bloomberg reports.

That’s the result of the recent uptick in gold prices, which had for several years stayed below $1,350 an ounce.

Gene Furman, CEO of refiner Empire Gold, told Bloomberg: “People are coming out of the trenches. Cartier, Rolexes, Tiffanys, Van Cleefs: We see an uptick in the luxury market because people need to raise money.”

Gold prices recently crossed $1,400 an ounce to hit their highest levels since 2013. On Monday afternoon, gold was trading at around $1,386 an ounce.

Tobina Kahn, president of House of Kahn Estate Jewelers, told Bloomberg: “The tides are turning big time. As a gemologist, I’m a buyer, if I can see that gold is continuing to go up, I’m more confident about paying more for it than having it go down.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
