How much can I earn when selling my gold?

purchase your gold based on weight and purity. Our experienced staff
members will determine the purity of your items, using industry standard
equipment, to calculate the total value.
If you know roughly the weight and purity of your gold items, you can work out
a close estimate by using our pricing table on the right. These prices are
updated on a daily basis.

What colours of gold do you purchase?
We purchase all colours of gold. The value of your gold is based on fineness
(carat value) of the gold, not the colour.
I've just paid $2000 for a bracelet from a retail shop and the value of
gold has gone up since then. Will I get more for it?
Unfortunately the answer is no. Because you've purchased your gold
jewellery from a retail store, at retail prices, the price you've paid is not solely
based on the value of gold but the design, manufacturing, transportation, staff
wages, store rental and so on. This means the price you pay for new jewellery
in retail stores is inflated well over the actual gold value alone.
