A stamp is used by a jeweler to indicate the type of gold and the purity of the gold. Historically, this goes back almost a thousand years as form of consumer protection. It’s near impossible to be able to tell the purity of gold through just looking at it making it easy for consumers to be duped.

Gold purity can range from 40% all the way up to 90% so it’s incredibly important that we’re able to verify its exact purity.

What is a fair deal when selling gold?
Weight is the most important factor in determining the value of gold. However, there are factors to take into account such as the condition and the purity of the gold. Sounds simple right? Be careful, there are ways that stores cheat on this by classifying 18K gold at 14K (generally most items are stamped -- if it is stamped 18K, then odds are it is very close to 18K). So, if you see someone testing your gold which is stamped 18K and telling you it's 14K, that's an issue. Maybe they will call it 18K, but pay you at 14K because of a "typical" lack of purity. Some stores have ways of pricing that is misleading. Like they quote a high per gram price, but then deduct so many fees that there is nothing left. In addition, they may not have licensed scales. In some cases, they are not properly licensed to buy gold which allows them to cut corners which in turn, costs you money. They can sometimes claim a loss during melt (there is a loss, but it varies depending on what is being melted). You're probably thinking to yourself, how can I trust anyone?
