For your satisfaction we have compiled a short list of questions that most people ask us:
Question 1: Is used gold is worth more or less than new gold?
A: Firstly: determine the karat value of your gold (i.e. 10k, 14k, or 22k). There is an inscription somewhere on the jewellery which will give you a good indication of the quality of your gold.
Secondly, when it comes to knowing the value of your gold jewellery, there are many factors to consider. Gold dealers generally use three things in order to determine the value of gold.
These are: 1) Karat – The higher the Karat, the higher the value, 2) Weight, 3) Price of gold on the day.
Question 2: How is payment of my items determined?
A: Payment is based on gold content (karat), weight, and the daily price of gold.
Question 3: What testing methods are used to determine purity of gold?
A: Upon receiving your gold, our testers will first look for a stamp on the jewellery made by the manufacturer indicating the karat. Testers then have three testing methods (acid/scratch test, electronic tester and or X-ray fluorescence scan) to verify the gold purity of your items.
Question 4: What if My Old jewellery I want to Sell is Broken?
A: Selling gold jewellery is an effective means of getting some needed extra cash. However, the state of your jewellery need not necessarily impact the value of the gold of which the jewellery is made of.
