Answers to common questions.

How do you determine how much my jewelry is worth?

There are several factors that can determine the worth of your gold, silver and platinum. The first factor is the weight of the item. We have certified scales to determine the precise weight. 

The purity of the metal also determines the value. For instance, an 18 karat gold chain will have more value than a 10 karat chain. We establish the purity by finding a stamp, using chemicals to test the item, or utilizing our electronic alloy analyzer. For gemstones, our team of GIA-certified gemologists make an evaluation of their composition and value. Then they weigh the item to help us determine a price.

Finally, the market also helps to determine the price, as the value of gold, silver and platinum changes daily, and sometimes hourly. Also, what we plan to do with your item can affect its value. A piece that we are planning to sell in our estate case may have a higher value than an item we plan to recycle.

Is an appointment necessary?

No appointment is needed! We can evaluate your items on the spot and determine a price immediately.

Do you buy back more than just gold?

Yes! We also buy platinum, sterling silver, diamonds, coins, and select designer jewelry.

What condition do my items need to be in?

There is no need to polish your sterling silver flatware or untangle your chains. We can even buy broken jewelry or half-pairs of earrings!

Do you buy watches?

We do buy some watches. Primarily, we are looking for brands like Rolex and Cartier. We can also buy watches that are made of gold.

Can you quote me the price of gold or silver over the phone?

Because the metal market changes so frequently, we are unable to quote pricing over the phone. If you stop in to any of our three locations, we can give you a price on the spot!

Do I need to bring anything with me besides my items?

If you have any diamond certifications, appraisals, or receipts, that is very helpful. Please bring a valid state identification card with you as well in compliance with county regulations.
