It is worth noting that there are many pitfalls in gold jewellery recycling, and consumers are prone to step on five "pits". The first "pit" is the "eight taels scale", and the recovery of gold should use a professional high-precision jewelry electronic scale or balance, and the unit is accurate to two decimal places, and the weight of the eight taels scale is not enough. The second "pit" is "worn", gold has high toughness, and the wear degree will not exceed 0.5 grams in 3 to 5 years. The third "pit" is "deducting impurities", some merchants will say that the purity of jewelry is insufficient, and 20 yuan will be deducted per gram, deceiving consumers who do not understand jewelry and are in a hurry to sell. The fourth "pit" is the "handling fee", the merchant will charge a handling fee on the grounds that the jewelry has no invoice, in fact, the gold recycling is mainly based on weight and purity. The fifth "pit" is the "aqua regia" stealing gold, the gold will dissolve after being immersed in the aqua regia, and the longer it is soaked, the more it will dissolve, and the merchant will "steal" the gold.

According to Beijing Business Daily, at present, China Gold, Liuliufu, Zhou Dasheng, Laomiao Gold, Liuguifu Jewelry and many other brand gold stores support gold recycling, and there is no restriction on gold brands, and there are no hard requirements for relevant certificates, but the recovered gold needs to be burned gold, and the recycling price is usually lower than the selling price of 50-100 yuan/gram on the same day, and if it is pure gold jewelry, the price difference is expanded to 200 yuan/gram.

In terms of gold realization, "combined with market conditions and gold price trends, whether it is a good time to cash in gold depends on a variety of factors, including market conditions, personal financial situation, investment objectives, etc., consumers should pay attention to avoid pitfalls in the process of gold realization, and fully consider and evaluate the relevant costs and risks." Yuan Xixi, a foreign exchange trader, believes that for the selection of different channels, it is recommended that consumers choose appropriate cash channels according to their actual conditions and needs, such as banks, gold stores, etc., and pay attention to comparing the repurchase conditions and prices of different channels to maximize returns. At the same time, considering that there may be differences in the repurchase policies of various banks and gold stores, it is recommended to keep the proof of purchase so that it can be successfully realized when needed.

Expert advice: It is not suitable to buy gold jewelry for investment purposes

According to the Morning News, whether or not they can buy gold now, consumers should remain rational in this wave of gold price rise? Liu Zhifei, a national registered gold investment analyst and chief financial writer of the morning newspaper, said that there are two situations to buy gold now: if it is not for investment purposes, people who buy gold jewelry for themselves can still buy gold at any time; if they hold the purpose of investment, then they should make prudent decisions and have a corresponding sense of risk.

"The price of gold is already very high, will it continue to rise? There is a lot of analysis at home and abroad. However, for consumers, this is difficult to grasp, especially difficult to avoid the situation that the price of gold begins to fall in the next week or month just after buying gold, which may have an impact on the psychology of some gold buyers. ”

On the other hand, it is not suitable for consumers who buy gold jewellery for investment purposes. "Branded jewelry has a high jewelry processing fee, and when the gold is recycled, this part of the money is lost for consumers, so consumers who want to invest in gold are more suitable to buy investment gold, such as investment gold bars, panda gold coins, ETF funds, etc. ”

According to the reference news network, Kosuno Ko, chairman of the Japanese commodity analysis agency "Edge of the Market" company, pointed out: "The value of gold as a safe asset is rising. Commenting on the situation in the Middle East, Kan said: "Although the details are not yet known, if Iran retaliates in the future, geopolitical risks will be pushed further higher, and gold prices may continue to rise." ”

In Goldman Sachs' view, the following four factors will cause gold prices to fall: The uneasiness caused by the US use of the dollar to impose sanctions has been eased; the central banks of various countries have fulfilled their set gold purchase targets; the mood of worrying about the slowdown in the economic growth of some large countries has subsided; and the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates. However, Goldman Sachs also predicts that "these factors are unlikely to occur at the same time in the short term, and the phenomenon of strong gold will continue for some time."

It is worth noting that, according to the latest report by the Securities Times, citing TASS, the Russian Ministry of Finance is considering canceling tariffs on gold exports. According to the latest data from the World Gold Council, Russia is the world's second-largest gold producer, accounting for about 10% of global production.
