Many factors go into the price of an item including the current spot price, the type of item, and the purity of the item. The current spot price of gold is volatile, and can fluctuate from minute to minute, we strive to give you accurate and competitive value for all your items.

Items that need to be refined. jewelry, circulation coins, or other items containing precious metals, which have no retail value are considered scrap because they will need to be melted and refined before the precious metal can be used or sold again.

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper, by weight. Adding these other metals makes sterling silver stronger and more durable than pure silver. This allows it to be used to make a number of things including:

  • Jewelry
  • Silverware
  • Plates
  • Platters
  • Coffee Sets
  • Silver-plated items

Sterling silver is also stamped to indicate that it is sterling silver. These stamps are "925", "92.5", ".925", or "ss".

Hallmarks, dates, and testing. Precious metals are typically stamped with markings that indicate their composition and purity. Pre-1967 Canadian coins, and U.S. coins dated pre-1964, contain silver, coins minted after these dates typically do not have a precious metal value. We also use various methods of testing items to determine their composition and purity.

Yes. We are not only interested in the precious metals you bring in, but in the stones they may contain as well. Testing can be preformed onsite to determine the grades of the stones.
