1. Buy Good-Quality Gold Jewelry (for Less!) at Hilltop Pawn

First of all, you can set yourself up for success by buying good-quality, authentic gold jewelry. Jewelry that isn't made from gold is sometimes prone to tarnishing, depending on what it's made from. This can lead to your fingers and skin turning green or black when you wear your jewelry, and it can cause your jewelry to look old, tarnished and worn-out very quickly. Even gold-plated jewelry generally isn't a good idea...once the gold plating starts to chip off, the surface underneath is exposed and can become tarnished, since the metal underneath is typically a cheaper metal.

​One good idea to shop for your gold jewelry from a pre-owned jewelry store like Hilltop Pawn. Here, we sell real gold jewelry for much less than the mall jewelry stores. Instead of buying fake jewelry, you can buy real gold hoop earrings, engagement rings, a solid gold necklace, or other jewelry for a great price by shopping with us. We always make sure our pieces look great and are ready to be sold before we put them out, too.
