Get your gold jewellery accurately analysed

Olympus GoldXpert XRF Analyzer

When we think of gold – many of us think of bullion bars, gold coins or gold jewellery. Globally world consumption of mined gold is about half for use in jewellery, 40 percent for investment purposes and the rest is used in industry.

Gold is a popular symbol for power, richness and royalty – and these representations are what make gold popular for jewellery as well as the softness of pure gold and its ability to be crafted to an almost limitless number of shapes and styles. Gold is often mixed with other alloys for use in the manufacture of jewellery to provide a variety of colour and hardness to gold jewellery with copper being the most popular base metal.

It is because of these “mixed” alloys found in most gold jewellery that the first thing to do when looking for a valuation on your gold jewellery is to identify what the percentage – or carats (k) of gold is present. The basic, and still quite common test is the “acid” test – where literally acid is applied to a scratching of the jewellery. A soft sandpaper is rubbed against the piece to be valued, and the fine dust produced has a few drops of acid applied. The reaction from this turns the acid a particular colour – depending on the purity of the gold, and from this “acid test” a piece of gold or gold jewellery can then be valued.

There is also a more “primitive” displacement method, where your gold item is placed in water and the amount of water displaced can provide an indication as to the purity of the item.

But to get real certainty as to the value of your precious gold jewellery at Ezycash Goldbuyers they have a proper X-Ray machine that accurately identifies the purity of gold in any gold piece, providing you the best valuation for your gold bullion, coin or jewellery.

This clever machine, called the Gold Xpert is manufactured by Olympus and as you can see from the images it provides the most accurate analysis of your gold – enabling you to get the best possible price.

So if you want to see the Gold Xpert in action – take your gold jewellery, gold bullion piece or even gold nugget to the team and Ezycash Goldbuyers and ask for a complimentary X-Ray!

Understanding Markings on your Gold and Silver Jewellery

If you own a piece of gold or silver jewellery, you have probably noticed that there are several markings stamped or etched on your piece. These marks are generally located on the inside of a ring or the underside or back of a pendant or bracelet. Gold chains may have a flattened piece of metal attached to the chain near the clasp which features the stamp, and some pendants may have a marking on the bail or loop supporting the pendant.

Because of their inconspicuous placement, these stamps will generally go unnoticed, however they do provide some information in regards to the value of your gold or silver jewellery. It is important to note though, that if you did not purchase your gold or silver jewellery from a reputable jeweller or dealer, the stamps on your jewellery may not be legitimate, so it’s best to get a valuation from a professional gold and jewellery valuer such as EzyCash Gold Buyers for more accurate information.

There are two main stamps or markings that you are likely to find on your gold or silver jewellery:

  • Metal quality: For gold, this mark indicates the carats, or gold quality, of the piece of jewellery. It may be shown using abbreviations such as 24ct or 18ct or expressed using a decimal figure which denotes the percentage of gold, for example .416 (10ct).
    For silver, quality marks may be used on silver jewellery that contains a minimum of 92.5% pure silver, and this may feature a stamp showing, 925, 92.5 or .925
  • Trademark or maker’s stamp: The other mark is likely to be the trademark stamp, initials or logo of the manufacturer or jeweller who crafted the piece. This helps identify the origin, and often the age, of a piece of jewellery and therefore can assist with accurately appraising an item, particularly antique pieces.

EzyCash Gold Buyers offers a gold and silver jewellery valuation service, either in-store or from your own home using our mobile gold-buying service. We can value your gold, silver, diamonds and luxury watches and provide instant cash for your jewellery. So, if you have gold or silver jewellery you would like to exchange for cash, get in touch!

Understanding Gold Carats

Understanding Gold Carats

Understanding Gold Carats

If you’ve ever bought a piece of gold jewellery, you’ve likely heard the piece described in terms of ‘carats’. The term carat is used as a unit of purity for gold, however carats can also be used to describe mass, or weight of stones such as diamonds or other gemstones. Understanding these terms and measurements can help you determine the value of your gold jewellery.

Due to the soft and pliable nature of gold, it is often mixed, or ‘alloyed’, with other metals such as copper or silver to make jewellery to add strength or hardness. The amount of metal added to the gold is measured to determine the final carat rating of the gold jewellery. Therefore, the carats are used to describe the level of pure gold in a piece of jewellery.

Each carat represents 1/24th of the whole, so 24-carat gold is pure gold, or 18-carat gold is made up of 18 parts gold and 6 parts of another type of metal, or alloys, such as copper (that is, 75% gold and 25% other metals) etc. The higher the number of carats, then the higher the gold content is in the piece of gold jewellery. This is used for both gold in the form of jewellery and also gold in bullion bars or coins.

It is standard practice for gold jewellery to be stamped with a marking that indicates this metal content. It will usually be placed somewhere inconspicuous on the piece where it will not be affected by size changes or near stones or designs.

Professional gold valuers will use certain measures to ascertain the purity of your gold pieces and determine its true value. At EzyCash Gold Buyers we provide fair and accurate valuations for gold jewellery, watches, diamonds and gold pieces and will offer a fair cash price in exchange for your jewellery.

Diamond Prices Breaking Records

Sell your Diamond Jewellery at EzyCash Gold Buyers

Do you like a bit of bling with your jewellery? How about $30million worth?! That’s how much a flawless 118-carat diamond recently sold for at auction with Sotheby’s. The egg-sized diamond was discovered in 2011 in a mine in South Africa and was originally a whopping 299 carats before it was cut.

This price, supposedly at the low-end of its estimated price, beats a previous auction-price record for a white diamond of $26 million just six months earlier. However this record-breaking gem may not hold its top spot for long, with Sotheby’s putting a 60-carat pink diamond on the block in November this year, which is expected to fetch more than $60 million at auction.

While this giant stone may have been an exceptional record-breaker, smaller collectible diamonds are also currently achieving big prices as markets see large jewels as portable stores of wealth.

So if you’ve got diamonds sitting around at home, they really might just be your new best friend as they may be worth much more than you realise. However diamond prices and vary widely, depending on size, colour and quality, so it’s best to only have your diamonds valued by a reputable dealer.

Bring your diamonds, both loose and jewellery-mounted, into EzyCash Gold Buyers for a valuation and we’ll make you an offer. Our valuers are experienced, and only offer fair and reasonable valuations based on real market prices.

How to choose a Gold Buyer

It’s not always an easy decision to part with gold jewellery or watches, so when the time comes, you want to be sure you’re getting the best price from a well-established, reputable company.

If you do a little research, it won’t take long to establish why other gold and silver buying companies haven’t had much success on the market – the prices they pay for your precious pieces are too low, and their overheads in large malls and shopping centres are too high. It’s a no-brainer that these overheads are being passed on to you by not paying you what your gold jewellery is really worth, however it’s this business model that hasn’t afforded them much longevity on the market. Also, while shopping centres may have high foot traffic, it’s hardly a place where sellers will feel comfortable discussing the sale of their unwanted gold jewellery.

Reliable & Reputable Jewellery Valuations

When it comes to selling your unwanted gold jewellery, choose a well-established company with a reputation for paying top price. EzyCash Gold Buyers is a reliable company with a long-standing reputation for fair, honest pricing, straightforward, convenient service, expert valuations and efficient payment. We’ve been in the business of buying unwanted gold, silver and diamond jewellery for over 15 years, with consistently good service and the best prices for clients who are looking for quick cash solutions.
