How do we calculate the payout for GOLD?
We Pay unto 98% for all gold, melted and refined at our facility. This is based on the gold trading price.
Gold Spot Price is $1350/ounce for pure gold (.999 or 24 carat gold)
14 carat gold that is refined is 58.5% pure.
To calculate the payout price: $1350-41.5% = $789.75/ounce for 14 carat gold. Minus 2% equals to $773.95(This number would be your maximum payout)
How much will I receive for my item(s)?
We establish the proper payment for your items by these predetermined factors: the karat percentage, weight of your items, and the set market price at the time. If you have a broken ring, or a perfect gold chain the payment would not be influenced by the aesthetics of your items but mostly on the weight and karat percentage. In other words, the greater the weight of your products, the higher the payout to you.

Tips for Selling Gold
Only sell to a licensed secondhand dealer. Businesses buying and selling gold in New York City must be licensed as a secondhand dealer and sometimes also as a pawnbroker. Check if the location buying your gold is licensed by calling 311 or visiting nyc.gov/consumers.
The buyer has to tell you the weight (measured in Troy weight) and the quality (measured in karats) of the gold and the price per unit that’s used to determine how much you’re being offered. If you ask for this information and they won’t give it, walk away.
Bring your ID. Gold buyers are required by law to check your ID. Don’t sell to a buyer who doesn’t ask for ID.
