First: What is a Precious Metal?
Before we move into which are the best precious metals, it is important to be sure we are on the same page about what makes a metal precious. There are actually two factors in play here. First, is the metal rare? If there is not much of a particular metal, then it is likely to be more valuable. Second, is the metal pretty? This may be subjective but generally if it is shiny, reflects well, and is durable, it will be worth more.
Rhodium is a Precious Metal
This precious metal is known for having a luster that is truly brilliant and for being very durable. It can handle even corrosive materials and is also safe in temperatures so high that platinum would have long turned into a puddle. It is not as well known as gold or platinum but it can bring in big bucks when you pawn it.
Gold is a Great Precious Metal to Sell
There is always a market to sell gold. This is because it is, by far, the most popular precious metal in the world. It has been popular since it was discovered 1,000+ years ago and it remains popular today. The price can fluctuate from day to day but you can count on South Bay Jewelry & Loan to offer a fair price.
Platinum and Silver Are Great Choices
Platinum is durable and pliable, which makes it a popular choice for more intricate jewelry. It is also very shiny and is more affordable than many other options. However, silver is the most affordable of all precious metals. It is loved because it has a unique shine and the beauty is truly subtle. While the price is generally not as high as you will get for other precious metals, it is worth finding out what you could get for it.
