This is the main reason we are able to pay more than our competitors because we use all purchased components first hand.

What to expect when you come into sell your gold jewelry, coins and flatware. Our trained staff will personally evaluate each item one by one. They will use a standard magnet to remove any fake steel based magnetic costume or fake jewelry. All items will be checked with a loupe to verify markings or stamps used to indicated the karat or purity percentage on the piece. LA Cash for Gold employees use microprocessor based state of the art digital electronic technology which allows us to safely and non-destructively determine gold purity content up to 24 karat in Yellow, White, Rose and Pure Gold. Karat readings appear directly on LCD display which is then shared with the customer. Our electronic gold tester works by computerized control analyzing signals from the electrochemical process and converting it to karat and European standard value in a numeric display.

Items are divided by karat class 10K to 24K in plastic jewelry zip lock bags. In some situations when heavy gold plating is present on your item we will need to slightly file some of the metal to get to the core. We may also need to do acid tests on those plated items at the time of sale to ensure we have the proper karat reading. Each bag is weighed in Grams, using a Mettler Toledo Jewelry Scale designed to weigh in troy. Troy is the only legal form of measurement that is used in the precious metals exchange worldwide.

Each bag is calculated by its Gram Weight and by its karat classification; using our Cash for Gold Calculator.

Note: You can use this tool at home for estimates on your own to see how the calculation process works.
