How Much Money Can I Expect for My 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. At West Valley Pawn & Gold this is what our appraisals and ultimately our cash offers are based on.
Initially, we will test the purity of the gold based on the hallmark stamp on gold jewelry. There is a special touchstone that will provide the gold flakes needed for testing. This does not harm your gold, nor visibly affect your gold's condition in any way. Once the hallmark is confirmed, we will place it on our precious metals scale. Based on the gold karat and the precise weight, we check the market's spot price. With all of the needed variables considered, we can present you the best cash offer for the highest amount.
*Our associates are happy to share and have full disclosure with you the results of the test, along with the hidden hallmark.
Avoid the Following Tactics of Assessing Your 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, and factor that in. There is a loss, but it varies depending on what is being melted). You're probably thinking to yourself, how can I trust anyone?
What About the Gold Offers I See On TV and Online
Everyone recalls seeing all the cheesy "cash for gold" offers on TV. Youtube has over 7000 videos on Cash For Gold with the top videos having "Scam", "Trustworthy", "Ed McMahon", and "McHammer" in them. These companies are spending a TON of money to advertise and what that means is that they typically are paying much less to cover their cost of advertising. We are in a convenient location with low overhead and a VERY small advertising budget. Not that it makes sense for you to send your gold to one of these places because we will pay more, but we just thought some discussion on alternatives was worth it. (or perhaps send it to them for a quote and then bring it in to use to see -- I suspect we will pay from 50% to 300% more money for your gold than they will.
