We purchase scrap precious metals…gold, silver, and platinum…from you, our customer. The metals markets move up and down constantly, so the price we pay is adjusted with those markets. Please understand that this is a “melt down” price; it is not a “second hand jewelry” price. We weigh the metal and pay according to the metal purity and the weight, so the condition of the metal does not matter. Broken chain, dented earrings, worn out jewelry is perfect for this. Jewelry you will never wear again is easily converted to cash for you, and we pay top dollar for your scrap gold, silver and platinum. If you do have jewelry that you prefer to sell for a premium price we do offer to sell it for you on CONSIGNMENT, however that is not a purchase we make on the spot, and it does take a while to sell your item in that manner.
