Jewelry and gold bars are valuable items in Red Dead Redemption 2. Since you’re playing a bandit who robs people, you’re going to end up with quite a few baubles. You can sell these for a tidy profit, which is especially useful early one, while you’re still struggling to gain a foothold in the frontier. Not all vendors will buy these things from you, though. That’s why we’ve written this guide, to show you where to sell jewelry & gold bars in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 gold bar glitch
There’s an exploit that allows you to get infinite gold bars – it might be patched by the time you read this, but it’s worth a try. Go to the burned village southwest of Horseshoe Overlook, near Valentine. Enter the sheriff’s office (the tiny building in the south) and look for a chest behind the desk. Open it and reach for the gold bar inside – as soon as you start bending, pause and save the game. Load that save without leaving the menu, and you’ll spawn near the village. When you return to the office, another gold bar will be in the chest.

How to use jewelry in RDR2?
Now, although you can sell it, it might be prudent to keep at least some of the jewelry you steal. Although it’s always good to have money, you’ll have no shortage of it later on, and there’s another purpose to these valuable objects. Some of them are used when crafting legendary trinkets and talismans, which unlock perks (passive bonuses).
Which vendors buy jewelry & gold bars?
Since you’re already here, you probably tried selling the stuff at the general store with no success. There’s only one kind of vendor that will agree to buy jewelry and gold bars, and it’s the fence. If you’re not up to your criminal lingo, a fence is a person that’s willing to buy stolen goods of you, and then sell them on. And, considering that these gold bars and jewelry are very likely to be ill-gotten gains, you have to seek the fences out. They’re also the ones who’ll craft talismans for you, which means you can always check whether that particular piece of jewelry is required for some fancy trinket before selling it. Which brings us to our next point.
Fence locations – Where to Find in Red Dead Redemption 2?
There are four of them in the game – in Rhodes, at the Van Horn trading post, in Saint Denis and at Emerald Ranch. The last one appears later on in the game – you won’t be able to find him in the first few chapters. The one in Rhodes is the closest to the starting area, which means you’ll probably visit him a lot. Not all of them will buy or sell the same stuff, so you might have to trek a bit before you sell off all your stuff. If you want more detailed instructions, check out our RDR2 fence locations guide.
