Testing the purity of gold you want to sell
In the United States, most people sell gold jewelry that is 14kt gold, and you can usually find a stamp on the gold you want to sell that indicates its purity. The stamp is accurate most of the time, but when the stamp is missing, or when the stamp indicates an unusually high gold purity for the type of jewelry, gold buyers will test the gold on site to determine the purity of the gold when you want to sell gold for cash. Testing gold purity is simple and fast and we do it on site, when necessary. If you have a piece of gold you would like to sell we will test the purity for you, weigh your gold, then make you a cash offer for gold. There is never any pressure to sell gold or obligation to sell gold at Barry’s Estate Jewelry.
