Have gold. Want money.

I have gold jewelry I never, ever wear. I live in Philadelphia. I want to sell it. Where do I do it and how does it work?

I have several pieces of gold jewelry that I never wear and never will wear. I don't know how many carats they are because a friend actually made them for me. I cannot ask the friend because I don't want to offend her by selling jewelry she made for me--but I just really never will wear it. I've had it for ten years and have never worn it. (It's a matching giant earring and bracelet set, and the earrings are too heavy for me to wear, and I'm just not a big gold jewelry person in general). I am 100% positive it is actual gold.
My question is twofold: Where in Philadelphia is a reputable place to buy gold, and can they figure out how many carats something is if it's not labelled?
