Sell Gold Jewellery
Simply put, we pay the best prices for unwanted and second hand jewellery. We have worked hard to make sure that we offer all customer top rates for their gold, and have developed a system that keeps you in control and up to date with every stage of your sale. We pay based on the gold content of an item, and according to our customer reviews we consistently beat jewellery shop prices and prices for buying gold jewellery. In the last few years with the gold price being so high most traders will only price your item based on its gold content, and not on its potentially resale value. It’s therefore always important to remember that the value of your item in most cases is the gold in your item, and we pay the best prices for gold – it really is that simple!
If you are looking to sell a large quantity of high carat un-hallmarked gold jewellery, we will usually be able to test this with our XRF Anaylsis machines, however, in some instance we may need to melt your items. Our melt process is done on site in our fully equipped melting lab and provide us the most accurate assessmen of the metal purity. If your items do require a melt, rest assured there is no charge for this, and we commit to making a same-day payment guarantee.
How will my jewellery be tested?
We use acid testing and filing, which involves filing into the item to scratch the surface, and appling a dab of acid to the metal. This is one of the oldest and most reliable initial testing of the major carats that most jewellery is manufactured in. The acid reactions will confirm 9ct, 14ct, 18ct, 22ct. All our counter staff are trained to be experts in gold buying, this is their profession and they are arguably the best in the business at what they do. However, we also home some of the best technical equipment for testing metal, including XRF analysis and full assay ability. Please note we do not value stones and all stones that are left in your jewellery will be removed and could leave your item broken. Under no circumstances is it possible to get these stones returned. Please read our helpful article about destructive testing. By using destructive testing methods it allows us to accurately assess the gold and pay our customers the best price for their second hand jewellery.
