Selling Gold & Silver Coins and Bullion!

Selling Gold and Silver requires a reputable dealer. We have been here for 30+ years trading all types of gold and silver coins.

Buying and selling coins and bullion can be pretty straightforward. It will rely on the spot price (you can think about the going rate of gold or silver to buy unrefined metals. Effectively like a stock market price, from which you can calculate the value of physical coins and bars) and be slightly above or below the spot price. If you know what coin or bar you have, you can call in and ask for a price that we would pay that day (for example, "What would you pay for an American Gold Eagle today.")

You have the option usually for cash or check, however, we are unable to give you more than $10,000 in cash (federal regulations), but we would be able to write you a check where you could bring to your own bank, or ours.

Selling Jewelry & Diamonds!

Selling Jewelry is similarly easy, with the only difference being we are unable to quote anything over the phone. Simply bring in pieces you are interested in selling, and we can give you a free quote.

If you are unsure if your jewelry is worth anything, it is always worth it to bring in and have us check. We buy all types of jewelry, including completely broken, damanged or unworn jewelry.

Due to local regulations, photo ID is required for selling amounts above $50.

Why Should I Sell Old Jewelry?
Old or broken jewelry can be quite valuable, retaining its metal worth. Selling gold jewelry, especially in current times, can provide extra cash and relief. Plus, you might discover pieces you haven't worn in years during a cleanup.
Do I need an appointment?
No! Bring your items anytime. We assess small quantities instantly, while larger sets are evaluated after store hours.
What can I sell?
You can sell any gold or silver item, like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or pendants. They can have gems or diamonds or be plain, in any condition. We value items based on their gold and stone worth.
Are the stones valuable?
Along with the metal, stones in the jewelry can also have value. Our GIA certified jeweler assesses your diamonds. If we're not interested in the stones, you can choose to keep them.
I have an insurance appraisal. Why is it worth less to sell?
Insurance appraisals cover the cost of replacing the jewelry at a retail store brand new. Effectively, what ammount of cash is enough to ensure that I can walk into any store in the U.S. and have this piece recreated from scratch. When selling, you're compensated for the scrap value of the piece: metals and stones. You lose all of the value that was created by setting stones, creating the piece, etc. The sell value is usually 10-15% of the appraisal value.
What does karat mean and how does it change the value?
Karat indicates the gold proportion in a piece. For instance, 12 karat gold is 50% gold. Gold's purity affects its strength and wearability.
How do your prices compare to pawn shops?
We've consistently been the top bidder in the county, offering the best rates due to our extensive purchasing capacity and efficient refinery processes.
Do I have to leave my jewelry?
It depends on the quantity. Small amounts are assessed immediately, while larger collections might require a few business days.
How long does it take?
It varies, from minutes in-store to a couple of business days for extensive collections.
My jewelry is stamped .925, what does that mean?
".925" denotes sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver. It's the most common silver type in jewelry.
Do you do estate appraisals for the jewelry and coins and what does it cost?
Yes, we offer jewelry and coin appraisals for estates. Costs vary based on quantity, ranging from $100 to $400.
Do I have to sell right then?
No! You can take your time to decide. Prices might fluctuate slightly due to gold and silver market changes.
How much money can I get?
It depends on the worth of your items, ranging from a few dollars to tens of thousands for larger estates.
Can I reuse my old stones?
