Tips for selling a gold ring to a gold shop?

Lovely ring but from a long-ago relationship.

I’d be happy to try consignment, but I don’t know if it would do well because the gem is just a peridot and has an inclusion that’s easily visible to the naked eye.

If I subtract the estimated gem weight, it seems to be c. $300 worth of 18K gold.

If I were just selling it for the melt value, would any other factor matter? (Which gold shop I choose, how I’m dressed, what I say?) If helpful I have the original box from the (high-end but not household-name) jeweler who handmade it.
