We are thinking of selling a white gold necklace, bought from Poh Kong some time back. But Poh Kong doesn't want to buy back white gold, I was told.

White gold has no resale value? Anywhere else where I can sell our white gold necklace? Anyone here with any experience?

Sorry, lah, it's true that "White Gold" has no resale value.

Try pawning it at a pawn-shop, that is, if you can still find one!

That's why I only wear white. No intention to sell and hopefully nobody would want too :p

Too bad Keith, looks like you won't be getting a good deal with white. :o

Keith,

The white gold you mentioned is an alloy of Gold and Palladium. White gold is now very popular in China Jewelry market.

Palladium sounds new to you?. It is actually one of the precious metal of the PGM group. PGM - Platinum Group Metal. It consists of Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium, Iridium, Osmiun and Ruthenium.

Gold is traded at its record high now at USD538.80/ Troy Oz. (31.1035gm)

If you want to find out the precious metal current price go to
www.kitco.com/market/ And
www.platinum.matthey.com/analyst_index.html

If you sell now probably you will make profit as you bought some time back when gold is traded around USD420/Troy Oz 1 to 2 years ago.

If you want to know more call up some of these precious metal traders like

1. Kitco Precious Metal Sdn Bhd - 04-333 3899 Mr Ang
2. MKS Precious Metal Sdn hd - 03-2163 8288

Thanks for the referral. Do they buy white gold? I don't have any gold to sell, only white gold?

Try Tomei Jewellery at Mid Valley. I've done it before, they'll minus some 20%++ (sorry cannot remember lah) but I feel still worthwhile. Oops, I think it's only for barter trade, means u can only trade for products but not cash. Hope it helps.

If white gold has no resale value who would want to buy it in the first place? Just puzzle.

As far as I know, it is usually made into a ring which houses precious gems such as diamonds, or necklaces with pendants. It is not meant to be a precious accessory in its own right.

Err...me? :p One reason, I adore white and would not be bothered if there is 0 resale value to it. I like the paleness of white on me, weird huh...
White gold doesn't lose its colour as quickly as silver, tho the latter is far cheaper. If it does, after years of wearing, you can just bring it to any goldsmith and have it "re-whiten" (meaning they would re-plate it with a thin layer of white gold to make it look glittering new) By the way, I understand even underneath the white, you can still find the gold. I wonder, if we can coat the white with yellow gold..hmm..then it wouldn't be the ori colour. Err..nevermind.
White gold, and platinum, comes in beautiful designs nowadays..esp the ones with little diamonds or sapphires..great gifts to someone special. Well, that's only a suggestion.
However, if someone has in mind to resell, never buy white. Go for gold.

Well... in this case... the advantage of white gold having no re-sale value is that ppl won't wanna rob u for it cos they can't sell it off. hehe.

P.S. Ever heard of ppl giving advice not to buy white gold for ur wedding ring cos of the re-sale value? Who's planning to sell off their wedding rings? :rolleyes:

My daughter likes white gold, my wife likes yellow gold. Knowing that white gold has no resale value, my wife buys yellow gold and have it plated white for my daughter. The process can be reversed later should we need to sell it.
Anyone doing this too?
