You might have heard the phrase, “all that glitters is not gold”. It isn’t clear where exactly that phrase originated, but what is clear is that a truer phrase was never spoken. Many items that you think would be extremely valuable, appearing to be real and solid gold, turn out to be anything but. Gold jewelry, rings, watches, and other gold items might simply be gold plated, which makes them not very valuable. Another important thing to note is that even if a gold item does actually contain a significant amount of gold, that gold may vary dramatically in quality from piece to piece.
When you bring in your gold to any of our convenient stores throughout Long Island and Queens, before we buy gold, we test the gold. We perform a very simple test that determines, first of all, whether your item is actually gold. At that point, our tests determine the quality of your gold, whether it is 22k, 18k, 14k, or 10k. Based on those tests, we are able to properly and fairly appraise the value of your gold and give you the best price for selling gold online or in New York, guaranteed. It is important to understand that the quality of your gold will greatly determine how much it is worth.
We perform these tests for two reasons: to ensure that you get the best and most fair price every time, and also as a service to you, the customer. We complete the tests right in front of you so you are aware of everything we do. We want you to feel comfortable throughout your selling gold experience, and will do everything we can to earn your business, and your trust. Want us to test your gold to see what it’s worth? Simply bring it in to any of our stores on Long Island and Queens for an appraisal. We look forward to assisting you!
