What We Buy
We purchase gold in necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc. in all kinds of karats and purity. We also buy white and rose gold and dental gold.
Types of Gold
Gold is on a 24-karat scale with 24-karat being .999 pure gold. The most common types of gold that we see are 10k (41.7% purity), 14k (58.5% purity), 18k (75% purity).
White gold is an alloy of gold mixed with other alloy metals that have a silvery-white color, such as palladium, nickel and silver. Rose Gold is an alloy of gold mixed with copper. Most commonly 75% gold and 25% copper. Dental gold is always in yellow form and typically used for crowns and fillings (smaller items).The general purity of dental gold is 14k-18k.
Gold, just like silver, will have markings on the item indicating what purity it is. These “hallmarks” are usually located on the inside of the band of items like watches, rings, necklaces, etc. For example, there may be a marking on the inside of your ring that says “18k”, which indicates that it is 18-karat gold.
Not all gold we purchase needs to be jewelry and is in sellable condition. We buy broken gold chains, dental gold, class rings, mismatched earrings and more. These pieces still hold precious metal value which really does add up to a surprising amount of value!
