A Gold Vacation

Your Summer vacation funds may be laying in your drawer.

It is a great time to gather your old treasures, inheritances, and unworn gold jewelry to sell. If you have gold jewelry with gemstones to sell we will use our knowledge in our discreet jewelry studio to assess your items to give you the fairest price possible. 


Some of the articles we buy are re-purposed into custom  jewelry projects. Others are sent to the refinery or sold on a wholesale level. When I buy your jewelry the end goal is to make some profit. If that is not possible I may choose not to purchase your item. When you sell your valuables you do not recoup the cost for the labor or profit originally captured in the retail price.

It is important to remember, the individual buying your old gold or diamonds, is not going to pay more than he pays within the industry. You are selling the pure metal and diamondsYou will still be receiving a fair price based on scrap value.

Gold used in jewelry is mixed with alloy which could be copper, silver, or nickel. After the alloys are added, these are the percent gold, The Karat System, used for jewelry.

  •  100 % = 100 fine = 24 karat
  •  91.7 % = 917 fine = 22 karat
  •  75.0 % = 750 fine = 18 karat
  •  58.5 % = 585 fine = 14 karat
  •  41.6 % = 416 fine = 10 karat

When you sell metal that has alloy mixed, to lower the percentage of pure metal, you do not get paid for the alloy. In other words if a piece of jewelry is 10 karat gold, you will be paid for the 41.6% of pure gold; the 59.4% of alloy is melted away. The same goes for the other karat percentages. The only dollars paid for scrap are for the pure gold.

The vacation of your dreams may be on the horizon, paid for with that gold sitting in your drawer. Call to make an appointment to get the best prices in the Kansas City area.
