YOU DON’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH REFINERIES – WE TAKE CARE OF ALL THAT
You don’t have to worry about dealing with refineries. Here is why:
REFINERIES TELL YOU HOW MUCH GOLD YOU HAVE IN YOUR JEWELRY
When you deal with a refinery, you have to go by their assessment of how much gold is in your jewelry. That means they will tell you the purity of your gold without any further verification.
WE TEST YOUR GOLD RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU
At Gold & Diamond Buyers of San Diego, we test your gold right in front of you using electronic instruments as well as acid tests. The testing is done right in front of you and you get to see the results as we do that. No one is taking your gold in a back room as they do in refineries where you are not allowed in the back.
REFINERIES DEDUCT MONEY FOR ALL NON-GOLD IMPURITIES
Furthermore, when it comes to buying gold, there are usually impurities. For example, in gold chains, stainless steel is used in the clasp of the chain. These impurities are deducted when you melt your gold at a refinery and you only get paid for the weight of the gold. However, when you sell gold to us, we do not melt it as a refinery does and pay you for the weight of the un-melted gold.
WE WEIGH YOUR GOLD RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU
We weight your gold right in front of you and pay you based on the un-melted value. At a directly refinery, the weight provided to you by the refiner is non-negotiable. In other words, they tell you how much gold you have once melted and you have no control over the process.
Some refineries may claim to pay you more for your gold, but when you take into account that they determine the weight of the gold it is not certain exactly what you are getting paid for. We do the process right in front of you.
Refineries also claim they pay “up to” 99% of your gold value. But when you check their math based on what they pay per gram of gold for certain karats of gold you can see that this number is designed to get you to think you are getting 99% when in fact if you multiply the live pure gold price by your gold’s karat (for example if you have 14 karat gold, you have 58% gold theoretically, we say theoretically because most refineries never give you 58% purity for 14 karat gold) and then divide the result by 31.1 (there are 31.1 grams in an ounce), you get a per gram price of gold that is higher than the refineries claiming to be paying 99% on your gold pay. In other words, while a refinery payout can be high, it is disguised to get you to think you are getting 99% of your gold value when in fact you are getting less.
Health Hazards of Dealing with a Refinery
When dealing with a refinery, you may be subjected to second hand (or in some cases first hand) toxic fumes generated from melting of your jewelry. There is not telling what materials are used in creating your jewelry and how toxic they can be when they are melted. Toxic gases can be floating around and getting into your mouth and lungs, which is dangerous.
When it comes to dealing with refineries over the years, we have figured out many of their tricks and have found some honest ones which we deal with.
In dealing with your local cash for gold places, you can let us deal with the refineries while you can see your gold weighed by state certified scales tested right in front of you and its purity determined right in front of you.
