 Recent Quotes from www.kitco.com]

At Rothstein Jewelers of Beverly Hills, people have been coming to us from all over Los Angeles to sell their old gold jewelry to buy food, clothing, holiday gifts, pay their rent, taxes, college or medical bills, adopt children and travel. We absolutely 100% guarantee to buy your gold for the highest price in all of Beverly Hills and West LA - customers have checked and confirmed it!  We pay more than most other jewelry stores (even downtown!), coin dealers, pawn shops, Cash-for-Gold online advertisers (especially them), and even Gold Party people. They all have to deduct some of YOUR potential payout $ for ads & promotions.   We will match a legitimate, verifiable quote. 
 PS: The people on TV claim to offer "50% more!" When questioned, they said that actually means "50% more than 3 years ago!" (False advertising!)     Another "Cash for Gold" in LA claims to pay high prices per gram, but if you look at their customer Yelp reviews, they really only paid out 70%. (Ours is 75-85% of the Spot Market.)

Make sure that when you call around to check, you compare apples to apples: Ex: "How much per gram they will offer you today for one gram of 14 kt. gold?" Don't let them confuse you with pennyweights! Ask "What percentage of the Spot Gold Market are they paying?"   (We pay 75 to 85% for regular gold jewelry... and up to 95% for gold coins.)

  Don't just send your jewelry off into a pre-labeled package to some internet only company!!  How do you know you'll ever get any money at all? Are you just going to cross your fingers, throw it in the mail,  & hope it works??  Check out our Yelp.com reputation & our Internet Testimonials.  If you'd like to mail in your gold, call us & we will email you a pre-paid UPS label.  Free Shipping! (800)544-7440. We'll call you when we receive it, then we'll send you a check.

HOW TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR GOLD JEWELRY IS WORTH:
You have to know the weight of your gold and the karat content. Search for manufacturer's karat stamps on the locks, posts, end-caps. It is tiny! The mark may be a number (without the decimal point) meaning the percentage of pure gold, for example: 14kt. = 583 or 585, 18kt. = 750, 10kt. = 417, and 9kt. (from England, Ireland, and Canada) = 375%.  Multiply any of those percentages by the Market Price per ounce [See Chart above], and then divide by 31.1 (grams.) Then weigh your gold and multiply your answer by the weight. That is the full market value.... but most reputable places like us will pay from 75% to 80% of that.  (Bad places only pay you 50%.)  We have to cover the refining costs, the evaporation of solders, plating, dirt, old residue, and non-meltable internal parts like springs and embedded stones; as well as dramatic down-shifts in the Spot Gold Market. Also, sometimes jewelry manufacturers stamp their gold 14Kt. but it may actually only be 13 Kt. or less.

*Italian-made jewelry is more true to its stamp than USA, Mexico, or China -made jewelry, which is often "under-carat".  So you get paid more for the Italian gold. Color doesn't matter; it could be yellow, white, or pink gold. (Russian is often pink.)

Gold coins will get paid at a higher price because if they are standard issue, they do not have to be melted. Usually it is about 85 to 95%.  Some coins are 24 karat, (".999 Fine"), but many are only 20 to 22 kt. with alloy added.
Most jewelry is made up of pure gold and alloys which make the gold suitably stronger for wearing.  Alloys are mixed in for color: copper, zinc, silver, platinum, palladium or nickel. When customers buy finished jewelry, the price includes the alloys, the workmanship, & the duty (from overseas). But only the pure 24Kt gold content counts when you sell it.

Silver content is stamped too. 925 = Sterling (It could say "STER"), 800 is less pure.
If you have silverware or silver trays or bowls that only say names like "REED and BARTON," it is just Silver Plated, & you can try eBay or donate it to Thrift Shops.

This brick is what all the old gold melts into before it is refined into 24Kt. pure gold.  Our factory melts the gold into a hot molten state, where a core sample of it gets sucked up into a tube. The factory then examines it with an X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer to determine the purity of gold (the assay). This XRF technology provides non-destructive, highly accurate identification of metal alloy composition and grade verification – within seconds, without hazardous chemicals as in the drilling procedure.

The assay tells us the actual percentage of fine gold, and how much loss there was due to evaporation. What evaporates is dirt, residue, solders, Rhodium plating, etc.  Before we can even present the scrap gold to the refiner, we have to clean it & remove all the non-meltables that can contaminate our melt. These are: metal springs in the clasps, stones, solders,  lead, excess dirt, non-gold loops or locks.

          Gold Bullion from Scrap Gold        Gold Testing at Rothstein Jewelers of Bevrly Hills                         

Here we test the gold for purity and karat content with different strengths of Nitric Acid after scratching the gold on this stone. We also check it with a Rare Earth Magnet.

  This bullion is refined, then recycled into 14Kt. or 18Kt. gold by mixing in various alloys for strength and color.  This helps save the earth from destructive mining.
