This is for Gold, White gold, and Silver. The process is the same.

The Process:

Come into the shop or mail us your items for testing (Location)

The Examination

  1. We look over all items first and determine if any items are recognized as gold and silver, and which ones require testing
  2. We also separate the items into groups of suspected purity, this makes the testing process go faster

The Test

  1. We make a small file into the back of the item*2, as inconspicuous as possible, and drop some test acid on it. Then we watch what color it turns. This test determines whether it is gold or not.
  2. We separate out what doesn’t test as gold and then focus on what items do test out.
  3. The next test is to find out what Karat of gold you have. (10K, 14K, 18K etc.) We do this by rubbing the gold item against a test stone and the drop various types of acid on the stone to determine what gold content it is.
  4. After determining the different Karat contents of the gold, we need to weigh it.

The Weight

  1. After separated, we weigh the gold on a small scale to check for weight. We generally buy scrap gold in Grams, because it is a smaller weight increment that is more accurate, however we can weigh in Grams, Pennyweights, Grains, Troy ounces, Regular Ounces, or whatever weight measurement you would like.*3

Getting Paid

  1. After testing and weighing all the gold, we then check the current spot price at that time. *4
  2. We have a formula for figuring out the price that gets you the best money. For more info on this please call or email, as the prices do go up and down.
  3. We take the number of grams times the price per gram equals what you get paid.
  4. We can pay cash at the time of selling, no waiting to get paid, or hoping a check is good *5
