Around mid-March, when COVID-19 was first declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, nobody could have predicted the impact it would have on the financial health of countless Americans. Now, roughly three months later, more than 44 million people have filed first-time unemployment claims in the United States, and that number continues to rise even as many businesses are slowly reopening their doors.

Here in the Grand Canyon State, the unemployment rate more than doubled from March (6.1%) to April (12.6%), and as of this writing the numbers for May have not yet been released. If you’re among the more than 800,000 Arizonans currently without a job, consider selling your unwanted gold to help make ends meet.

Need a little extra income? Sell gold in Phoenix at Southwest Jewelry Buyers.

Gold is a constant in any economy and will always be in high demand. That means if you have old gold jewelry you don’t wear or coins collecting dust in a box somewhere, they could be a source of income in a time when you need it most.

Instead of selling your gold online, which can be risky, smart sellers understand the benefits of working face to face with a reputable dealer. That way, you can get a good feel for how they do business and easily discern whether or not they are qualified to appraise your gold and offer you a fair and honest price.
