Not Only Scrap Gold
In addition to buying scrap gold, we also buy quality old jewellery, diamonds rings, watches, certificated diamonds, coins, medals, medallions, silver, platinum, and more.
Know Your Buyer
If you have gold coins, jewellery, diamond rings, scrap gold, or bullion to sell, it is well worth giving some thought to what sort of seller you need.
Scrap Gold Buyers
Most of the recent rash of cash for gold buyers are only, or mainly, interested in scrap gold, which they can turn back into cash very quickly,
It would be silly to offer a diamond ring to a scrap gold dealer expecting to get a decent price for it. A modest diamond ring worth £30 for scrap gold might be worth £100 as a diamond ring.
Similarly most scrap gold buyers would only pay you the scrap gold price for an hand made antique jewellery piece. You might end up with £50 for something worth hundreds or thousands of pounds.
Scrap gold buyers cannot be expected to give more than scrap value for gold coins, whereas a coin dealer may pay much more.
Antique Shops & Jewellers
Shops and dealers specialising in antiques and particularly antique jewellery would be an obvious place to offer your antique jewellery, but these same dealers may not be keen to buy scrap gold, gold coins, or modern diamond rings.
Most coin dealers specialise in one area of the numismatic marketplace. Some deal in Roman, Celtic, hammered, British, or American coins. some only want the finest quality pieces, others prefer to deal in lower priced coins. Some coin dealers steer clear of gold bullion coins, or only buy it to pass on to a gold coin specialist. Most coin dealers do not buy jewellery or diamonds.
Most multiple high street jewellers do not deal in second-hand jewellery or scrap gold, possibly because it spoils their image, possibly because it requires different expertise compared with retailing new jewellery.
Some smaller, independent jewellers may be more flexible. Even these may not be keen buyers of a whole range of gold goods that you have for sale. Many will simply want to buy scrap gold cheaply because they can make a quick profit on it, others may prefer to buy only selected pieces from you.
Bullion dealers will primarily be interested in your scrap gold, possibly including coins, but almost certainly will not bid competitively for diamond jewellery or better pieces.
If you have a range of different items, you would probably be best to look for a dealer who will not only buy everything you wish to dispose of, but will also pay you a fair, reasonable, and competitive price for it.
Apart from us, we cannot think of a single competitor who meets all these criteria. This possibly explains, at least partially, why we keep so busy for most of the time.
Fair and Competitive Prices
Our buying prices for gold coins, bars and scrap are fair and competitive, but depend and change based on underlying gold prices, and other market conditions such as supply and demand.
We also frequently buy gold coins from many other countries. There is no import duty or tax on entry to the UK for most gold coins or bars.
Beware the £1 Billion Scrap Gold Buying Rip Off
Don't let yourself get ripped off by upstart cowboy gold buyers offering insultingly low prices for scrap gold.
