Gold Plating Basics:

We cannot buy any gold plated items because the gold plating is simply too thin to have any value after refining.

IMPORTANT TIP: precious metals are not magnetic, so if it sticks to a strong magnet, it is not gold silver or platinum.

You can usually tell if something is gold plated if it is stamped with one of these marks:

GP = gold-plated

GS = gold shell

GHE = heavy gold electroplate

GE = gold electroplated

GF = gold filled

RGP = rolled gold plate

EPSN = electroplate silver nickel plating

How We Evaluate Precious Metals:

1) Rare Earth Magnet

We test every item with a rare earth magnet, to eliminate most gold-plated items.

2) We test for purity using as many as three methods:

  A) The classic Acid Test, tells us what a metal is and isn’t, and grades its purity.

  B) Electronic Testers, also tells us the purity of an item.

  C) X-Ray Fluorescence. XRF Uses X-Rays, and tells us the EXACT composition of metals.

3) We weigh, using calibrated scales, measuring in grams.

4) A smart phone app, calculates the correct payout, based on weight and purity.


And we THANK YOU for your business.
