Gold Jewelry

(What is the process of selling used Jewelry & Scrap items)

The amount of gold, or gold purity, in jewelry is measured in karats. A karat is 1/24th pure gold. Pure gold is therefore 24 karats, or 24k. Since pure gold is an extremely soft metal, it is not practical to fabricate jewelry from it as the jewelry would become easily damaged. Other harder metals such as copper are added to gold jewelry to give the piece enough durability to be worn day-to-day while resisting scratches, bending, and general wear. Common blends, or alloys, of gold used in jewelry are:

Karat Gold Percentage
22k91.6%
18k75%
14k58.5%
10k41.7%

Genuine gold jewelry is almost always marked with its karat value (ex: 14k) somewhere on the piece. You can look for this mark on the inside of a ring or near the clasp of a necklace for instance. If you cannot find a mark, it’s likely not gold. If you are unsure however, we would be happy to examine the piece to verify its authenticity.

When selling your unwanted or damaged gold jewelry to us, we must first determine the amount of actual gold in the jewelry. To determine this, we simply multiply the total weight by its gold percentage as determined by its karat purity. The price we pay for customer’s damaged or unwanted gold jewelry is determined by the following formula:

(Actual Gold Weight x Current Gold Price x 85%)

For example, a customer would like to sell some unwanted and damaged gold jewelry totaling .25 troy ounces of actual gold. A current gold price of $1,800 multiplied by .25 ounces multiplied by 85% equals an offer to buy the gold for $382.50.
