Mainly any gold Jewelry or something made of gold or gold coins value is determined by the factors Purity, Weight and current price of gold.
We get less amount than for what we bought them because of the weight. Jewelry's weight always decreases as it had used. There are also some buyers who generally try to cheat.
So if you want to sell your old ornaments, I suggest you to First check the purity of your gold then know the weight and at the last know the current price of gold. After confirming these three factors go to sell your gold.

Gold surface and the ageing is considered while reselling the object. Most of the re sellers check the carat and the current valuation is going to be based on that. Those who are reselling it are going to use it for remolding. In case of remolding the price is based on the current quality. So always the resellers buys the gold at the lower price than the market price. If you go to any jeweller then you can find out how much it takes to remold the gold. The price is quite fluctuating.
