Spring is associated with everything from weddings and graduations to more reflective topics like rebirth, new beginnings and, of course, cleaning.

Whether you’re in need of a special occasion gift, wanting to get rid of the past and start fresh, or you’ve been cleaning out your house this winter, Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins can help no matter what your plans are for the spring.

“We buy gold and sterling silver jewelry, pocket watches, Rolex watches, bullion, coins, sterling flatware, sterling serving pieces, sterling candlesticks, and sterling tea sets, and the process couldn’t be easier,” says owner Cara Reider. “Everyone has gold and silver jewelry they’re not wearing or an old sterling flatware set they’re not using that the kids don’t want. Bring it in, I’ll assess its worth, make you a cash offer on the spot, and you take it or leave it. It’s as simple as that.”

Cara says people often don’t know the worth of something, so they stick it in a drawer to collect dust. Broken gold and silver chains, high school rings, pins and coin collections are often worth much more than expected. And Cara pays the highest percentages in Ohio, guaranteed.

Often people don’t know the value of something, so they stick it in a drawer to collect dust. At Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins, broken gold and sterling silver chains, high school rings, pins, Grandma's sterling silver platters and old coin collections are often worth much more than expected. Cara will assess what it's worth and make you a no-pressure cash offer on the spot.

“Gold and silver prices fluctuate daily, and both are very high right now. It’s a great time to cash in,” says Cara. “I’ll determine the purity and weight of your items and make you an offer based on the price of gold and silver that day.”

Coins are also a specialty of Cara’s and are something she is both knowledgeable and passionate about.

“I love it when collectors come in searching for something rare and unique, or I can help someone get started on a lifelong hobby,” says Cara. “And coins don’t have to be very old to be worth something. American pre 1964 quarters, dimes, half-dollars and silver dollars are all made of 90 percent silver and are worth much more than face value. So don’t be too quick to spend those coins before seeing me.”

Cara is a fountain of knowledge and offers helpful information like this when it comes to gold, silver and coins. And at Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins there’s never any pressure to sell or buy.

“This is my business and I know it inside and out,” says Cara. “And these are uncertain times we are living in. Many people are diversifying and becoming more interested in gold and silver as an investment for the future. Gold and silver have been around since the beginning of time and have always had value. That has never changed.”

Cara also has coins, bullion, and unique gold and silver jewelry to sell that make great gifts. Gold and silver chains, earrings, even engagement rings—all for much less than you’d pay at a retail jewelry store.

“Why not give a gift that will appreciate in value,” says Cara. “And a beautiful gold chain or bracelet is something you can wear and enjoy now and will only become more valuable with time.”

So, whether you’re cashing in on what you have, buying for an investment, or you’re looking for a unique gift, Chagrin Falls Gold & Coins is not to be missed.
