How can I sell you my gold, silver, or platinum
You can drop in to see us at our office at 829 Bloor Street West. When you arrive, we will test and weigh your previous metals in front of you, issue you a receipt, and pay on the spot.
How is your price determined
We pay as much as 98% of the melt value of your gold. This is much higher than most jewellery stores, pawn shops, infomercial gold buyers, and online mail-in services, which typically offer 20% – 60% of melt value. Remember, a troy ounce of gold weighs 31.103 grams. All of our prices are listed under "What We Buy | Our Buying Prices".
How do I know I am getting the best deal
We have many satisfied customers in Toronto, and we are happy to provide references. Since we deal with local customers in Toronto, we are able to keep our operating expenses low and offer excellent prices. After covering our refining, assay, and financing charges, our profit margin is very small. We have done extensive market research, and we are confident that our prices exceed our competitors.
How can I tell if my items are gold, or just plated
Solid gold is usually stamped with the purity, while gold-plated items are stamped “GP”, “KP”, “HGE”, “RGP”, “GE”, or “GF”. We are unable to buy plated items as they contain very little gold. You can learn about our evaluation process under "How We Work | Our Process".
Do you buy gemstones
No. Right now we are focused only on buying gold, silver, and platinum. We may start buying gemstones in the future, but not yet.
Do you pay extra for appraised jewellery
No, all of our purchase prices are based on current prices of gold, silver, and platinum. With today’s high gold prices, there has never been a better time to sell. Most of our customers are surprised by the value of their jewellery items.
How can I use a magnet to test my jewellery
Gold, silver, and platinum are non-magnetic. Many gold-plated items have a core of nickel or iron, which is magnetic. So, a magnet can be used to determine if your item is nickel or iron, with a thin plating of gold. WARNING: Some gold-plated items contain a brass core, which is not magnetic.
