What Can I Sell to Guns & Gold?


We buy all types of Precious Metals! We buy Gold and Silver, Platinum, Coins, Bullion, Ingots, Coins, and Diamonds. 
You most likely have at least one of these types of Precious Metals:

GOLD & SILVER BULLION, INGOTS, BARS, ROUNDS

Bullion is a term that investors and metal traders use to describe a bar or coin that is pure. Usually bullion describes Gold, Silver, or Platinum that is minted into at least 99.9% purity (".999"). Typically gold is minted or cast into .9999 fine (99.99% pure, or "four- 9's"), and silver into .999 fine. There is always a huge variety of bullion on the market, from an always-growing choice of mints. Bullion is commonly traded, and sometimes preferred, when it is in the form of a United States Mint Coin. These are the most easily recognized, and often also carry numismatic (collector's) value as well as metal value. However, just because a coin is not a U.S Mint coin, does not mean it is less valuable. Privately owned mints have the capability to produce coins with equal metal purity, that also have equal eye-appeal and value. Modern bullion coins and bars will always have what type of metal, the weight, and the purity, stamped/minted onto the product. Precious metals are weighed in Troy Ounces.  1 Troy ounce is 31.1 grams, as opposed to a Standard Ounce, which is 28.3 grams. The difference is often exploited by dishonest people when trading coins or jewelry. Precious metals are traded on the current market price ("Spot Price"). Market price is determined by the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX). The price is updated every second and is the world-wide standard for prices. We generally pay 5% under the market price to buy gold/silver, and charge 5-10% over market to buy items from us. For more info see our Bullion Exchange Page.

LOOSE AND MOUNTED DIAMONDS



We buy all types of diamonds. They can be loose, or set in jewelry. We purchase all colors, cuts, and sizes. If you have certification papers, please bring them along as it will help us determine value quicker. We resell directly to a diamond wholesale company, and are able to offer you $50 - $2,000 per carat. 

Gold "Karat" Jewelry - Rings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Broken, Wearable, or Scraps - We Buy It!

Gold Jewelry, also known as "Fine Jewelry" or "Karat Gold" is by far the most common item we buy. Karat gold is partly pure gold, and mixed or "alloyed" with other metals for strength. Pure gold itself is a soft metal, and too weak for jewelry making purposes. The higher the Karat, the more Pure Gold the Jewelry contains:
9 Karat Gold, Marked "9K" or "375"

9 Karat Jewelry contains 33%-37.5% Pure Gold. 9 Karat is usually only found in European jewelry.
10 Karat Gold, Marked "10K", "10KT", "10KP", & "417"

10 Karat Gold contains 38%-41.7% Pure Gold. 10 Karat Jewelry marked "10KP" or "417" is higher quality jewelry and usually contains more gold than standard 10K. This is the most commonly encountered type of gold jewelry.

14 Karat Gold, Marked "14K", "14KT", "14KP", & "585"

14 Karat Gold contains 56%-58.5% Pure Gold. 14K Jewelry marked "14KP" or "585" is more valuable than standard 14K because it contains slightly more gold. 14K Gold is more expensive than 10K due to its higher gold content.

18 Karat Gold, Marked "18K", "18KT", and "750"

18 Karat Gold contains 75% Pure Gold. This is the most expensive gold found in common jewelry items. Beware 18K H.G.E. or 18GE, these items are electroplated and have no precious metal value.
22 Karat Gold, Marked "22K", "22KT", "917"

22 Karat Gold contains 91.7% Pure Gold. It is often exotic jewelry made in Asia, India, or the Middle East. Because pure 100% gold is too soft to be made into jewelry, 22K is the purest found in jewelry items. The 8.3% alloy mixture is typically copper or nickel, and is used to add stregnth to the item. Beware of jewelry marked 24 Karat, as it is always a clad(electroplated) item.
STERLING SILVER:
There are many, many types of silver items that we buy! The most common by far is "Sterling Silver" also known as "925". The Sterling Standard dates back around 200 years, so most likely if your item is silver it will be stamped 925 or just sterling. Items range from flatware to antiques to jewelry. Often you will find "925" on gold-colored jewelry, indicating that piece is solid sterling silver rather than gold. Silver items are also made in .500, .750, .800, .850, .900, and .950 purity. Certain international "hallmarks" can be found on silver, although usually (not always!) hallmarked items are not solid silver. Beware of "German Silver" or "Nickel Silver", these are just fancy terms for items that are NOT solid silver!
GOLD - FILLED JEWELRY and WATCHES

Gold-filled jewelry is heavily alloyed with copper and contains much less gold content that regular Karat Jewelry does. We buy Gold Filled Jewelry that is 10K, 12K, 14K, and 24K Filled. Gold filled can be marked 1/10, 1/20, GF, and KGF. Many older pocket-watches are marked "warranted" on the back cover, this also indicates gold-filled. 
DENTAL WORK and "GRILLS"

Gold is often used in dental procedures, such as tooth replacement and fillings, because of its non-corrosive qualities. We buy gold teeth, bridges, and pre/post surgical scraps. You do not need to remove the cement before selling to us, but please allows us a little more time to process these types of items. 

<<<We also buy gold "grills", which are cosmetic items used to add a little              "bling" to your mouth. These custom-made pieces are usually 10 or 14             karat gold.
PLATINUM

Platinum is typically more expensive than gold, and is used almost exclusively in making engagement rings and wedding bands. It is marked "PT", "Plat", "800", "850", "900", and "950". It is also minted into Platinum investment bullion (pure bars and coins). We buy all types of Platinum jewelry and bullion, as well as Palladium, which is a similar metal.
