Question: Do you take other metals besides gold?
Answer: Yes! In addition to white gold, yellow gold, and pink gold in 8k, 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, and 24k, and dental gold, we also take sterling silver and platinum. Sterling silver may say “Sterling” or 925 stamped on it. Silver pieces can also have a Hallmark on them or numbers such as “84”. Platinum may be stamped Pt. 750, 850, 950, or 1000 depending the purity. Some metals may not be stamped and still be gold, silver, or platinum. Just send it in, we will test it for you.
Question: Do you buy Diamonds or other precious stones?
Answer: Yes, we buy diamonds. Although we purchase precious metals for refinement mostly, diamonds .5 points and larger are appraised separately by our inhouse professionals and we'll make you an offer that will be higher than the other cash for gold places that only pay for the melt value of your gold. Diamonds are valued by their cut, clarity, carat weight, and colour. They are always worth something. Tiny diamonds get melted along with the gold. Bring your jewelry to us and you will always get the top value. Please note: We don't buy semi-precious stones. To see all the items we buy click here
Question: I paid $1000 for my necklace. I should expect to get $1000?
Answer: Retail stores mark up jewelry,we pay for the “melt value” of your jewelry – that is, the value of the gold itself once it has been melted down and sent to the refinery. If your jewelry contains diamonds, we appraise them separately. You will get the top $$$ for your item if you sell it to us. The other good news is gold prices have gone up since you bought the necklace. Even with the mark up you still may be doing great.
Question: Gold went down a few dollars yesterday, should I wait until it goes back up to send it ?
Answer: The price of gold has been so volatile in the past few years that no one can predict what it will be on any given day. If you wait, the price could tumble leaving you pretty disappointed. If you want or need money now, then there is no better time to sell your gold, silver or platinum.
Question: What if I change my mind after mailing out my jewelry?
Answer: Not a problem. After we receive your gold packet, we test and weigh your gold, silver, or platinum and an offer by phone and/or e-mail. No melting is done unless you approve the amount. If you change your mind we will happily and quickly return your metals. If you choose to sell your gold, silver or platinum, the metals are then melted, and your money will be sent out to you safely and promptly. If not, you will be charged a return postage fee.
