Raising the Bar

in the Gold Buying Industry

Now you can sell your gold safely, privately, efficiently and at a fair price.

How It Works

The gold buying process

Transparency, integrity & honesty is at the very heart of our gold buying process.
How It Works - Step 1

Step 1

Bring in your unwanted, damaged or broken gold jewellery to one of our stores to get it tested by one of our friendly professional sales consultants.

Our consultants will explain the process to you and will proceed with the following Gold Testing Steps.
How It Works - Step 2

Step 2

The consultant will first check the item for carat markings. Then the gold is rubbed on a touch stone leaving a gold mark on the stone.

Various Nitric acid solutions are dropped onto the line to determine if the item is gold and if so, what carat it is. The consultant will then need to verify that the item is solid and not gold plated.

A file test is done by gently scratching the surface and place a drop of acid on the item. If there is a reaction and the acid changes colour, then the item is not gold or it is gold plated.

Step 3

If the item is Gold and the carat is verified, the weight and carat is entered into the system and quote is automatically calculated.

If you are happy with the price, the consultant will complete the sales process on the POS and you will be paid out CASH on the spot or a direct EFT into your bank account.
