 Excellent company! When it came to selling some old jewellery I received prompt and efficient service and a fair price. I have recommended to a friend as I was so impressed.

Firstly know what you have

The first step is to gather the details of your gold so you can receive a quote, is order for us to provide you with our price, we will need to know the weight of the gold, in grms ideally and the carat of the gold.  Kitchen scales will give you an estimate on weight so you can get an idea but this won’t be 100% accruate.


 The first step in preparing to get cash for your gold is understanding exactly what you have. These characteristics include:

  • The Karat of gold: Is it 9ct,18ct 22ct ect most jewellery has a hallmark that tells you what karat your gold is. We have detailed below what hallmarks to look for.
  • Know the weight- To receive a quote for your gold you will need to try and find out the weight in grms you can use simple kitchen scales just to get an idea of the weight in grms, this won’t be 100% accurate but it will allow you to receive an estiamte.
  • Are there any gemstones or diamonds in the gold ? If so you should normally receive a price for the gemstones if they are precious and for the diamonds as well as the gold.
  • Age: When the jewellery was originally bought. Jewellery over 20 years old can be considered vintage (as long as it was not mass produced), and over 100 years old it is considered antique.
  • Wear: If the jewellery shows any signs of wear such as scratches or missing diamonds this can detract from the value and if it’s plain gold that’s broken ect it’s classed as scrap gold.
