How It Works

Go treasure hunting

The first thing you want to do is go through your old jewelry, Gold, Silver, coins, and precious metal items. Look for Old Jewelry, Broken Jewelry, Old Coins, Silver coins, Scrap Gold and anything of the like. Also, if you don’t know if it is real gold or not, feel free to bring it in anyway so we can look at it for you.

Travel across town to see us

Once you have your items picked out, you can bring them down to our current store location located in Chesapeake, VA. We will then weigh your items on our certified scales. With the total weight of your items, we will calculate the value of your items based on the karat and weight using the current market “spot” price.

Get paid!

Finally, once we have sorted through your items and provided the quote, you can have the option of having cash or check for your items. If you wish to not sell your items, then that is perfectly fine, as we also offer the option for cash loans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whats worth more, gold or silver?

Gold is by far more valuable than silver.  Although silver jewelry has a higher purity then most gold jewelry; gold jewelry is still more valuable because the spot price of gold is approximately 70x more than silver.

How much do you pay for gold?

The value of your gold is determined by multiplying the weight times the karat, times the market price for gold, multiplied by our return rate.

What about stone removal?

Upon selling your items, if you wish to have the stones we removed, feel free to let us know and we can certainly do so. In regards to valuable stones, the majority of the stones we buy are essentially diamonds.

Do you buy silver?

YES… we actively buy all silver items such as jewelry, coins, bullion, and sterling flatware. Sometimes, it may be best to collect a larger amount of silver before trying to sell, as the spot spice for silver is only a fraction of gold, as previously noted.
