We do not purchase plated gold. If you have any items with the following markings, please do not include them with your shipment to us:
- GE or GF – Gold Filled | RGP – Rolled Gold Plate | EPNS – Electroplated Nickel Silver | HGE – Heavy Gold Plate | GS – Gold Shell | GP – Gold Plate
These markings will be found after the hallmark such as this 10k GF. This is an example of something we would NOT purchase because the actual gold content is too small to have any market value.
Yes! We also purchase silver, platinum, palladium and even rhodium. Please visit our What We Pay page for details or contact us with any questions you may have.
Yes, we are currently purchasing diamonds over 0.25 ct. in size and payment is based on the overall size, clarity, cut and colour. However, we are not currently purchasing other gemstones or smaller diamonds so they would not be included in your payout figure. We can still accept the piece but do not pay for the stones. We recommend, if the stone is of value to you that you remove it before sending in your items. Please note, we cannot return stones once you have accepted our payout offer so again, please be sure to remove stones you wish to keep prior to sending.
All items are tested for precious metal content when we received them. You may send in these types of items and our testing experts will be able to determine if the item is real gold and the exact karat value. A good test you can do at home is to run a magnet over the piece of jewelry. Precious metal is not magnetic so if the item is magnetic, it will not contain precious metal.
