Before You Visit

Before you visit any jewelry buyer, you should know which pieces you’re going to sell and what they’re worth. Untrustworthy buyers may try to offer a value far under what your gold jewelry is truly worth in order to get as high a profit margin as possible. Although gold jewelry buyers will always offer slightly under market price due to the expense of reselling, you should always receive a fair value for your luxury item. Do research before visiting and determine what the resale value of your piece is. Speak to a third party with no financial interest in order to gain an objective and fair evaluation of your jewelry. Knowing this value going into the gold buyer’s shop will help you ensure that you’re receiving an offer you’re comfortable with when you sell jewelry.

The Appraisal Process

During the appraisal process, every step should be made transparent. When appraising gold jewelry, there are three factors that are taken into consideration to calculate the value of the gold: the weight of the gold in troy ounces, the purity of the gold in karats, and the current gold spot price. One of our expert team members will take time to measure these factors and determine the current market value of your item. All of our scales are certified by Orange County Field of Weight & Measure to ensure that all measurements are accurate to the industry standard, so you can rest assured that you’re receiving the fairest offer possible.
