Sell your Gold

How to get the
maximum for your jewelry?

Several options are available to you when it comes time to dispose of your old gold. Gold buyback websites ask you to send your items by post, they will then be analyzed and weighed. It is also possible, during targeted weekends, to show up at a warehouse in your area where professionals gather to buy your gold.

But do you know who you are dealing with?

Family jewelry stores are generally established for several years or even several generations. By meeting a specialist in a renowned jewelry store, you have the opportunity to assist and understand the process used. You can therefore entrust your gold to experts with complete confidence.

Why sell your gold jewelry?

The accumulation of broken chains, old baby jewelry, a lost earring, a piece of jewelry acquired during an old relationship or even outdated, are all good reasons to sell.

Souvenir jewelry such as a pair of earrings bought while traveling, or Grandma's rings, are often the most difficult to dispose of. On the other hand, very often, they end up aging in a chest.

You might be amazed at the value of the gold sleeping in your drawers. So why not use it to cherish a loved one or treat yourself! Our advice is to exchange your old gold for a jewel in your image; a new ring that will remind you of your grandma every time you look at it on your finger...

We honor the trust you have placed in us for more than 45 years, and it is with pleasure that we support you in your approach to selling gold.

You have questions?
What is the process?

First, the percentage of gold is evaluated for each of your jewels. A 10k, 14k or 18k inscription is usually engraved in the object. The 10k symbol means that the jewel is 40.3% pure gold, 14k is 58.5% pure gold and 18k is 75% pure gold. In order to determine the percentage of gold, we perform an acid test.

The jewels are then classified according to the purity of the gold they contain and are weighed on a scale approved by the Government of Canada. In order to offer you the price of used gold according to the daily rate, we weigh the items in grams.
Do not be surprised if the value of the jewel sold for gold differs from the price at which you obtained the jewel, because only the price of gold is considered when buying. The design, the artist and the cost of labor to make the jewelry are not taken into account. Additionally, we must calculate the smelting, refining, and other costs to turn “old gold” back into new, pure gold: a process that takes place in a specialized precious metals foundry.

How to determine real from fake?

Trained subject matter experts use multiple tools to categorize gold and metals. It is therefore normal to not know how to differentiate real gold (just like real diamonds and precious stones) from imitation. Rest assured, our mission is to accompany you and inform you throughout your process.

What if I have diamonds and other metals?

The "old" diamonds can be reused to make a jewel to your liking or sold to the jeweler. On the other hand, for the same reasons mentioned in point 2 and because we have to calculate the costs of restoring the diamonds to good condition, the price obtained will not be the one you paid in the past.

During the meeting with your trusted jeweler, all these steps as well as the different options relating to your diamonds will be explained to you. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
