The majority of gold jewelry is engraved depending on the percentage of gold in your jewelry: 10k is equivalent to 41.7%, 14k equals 58.5%, 18k equals 75.0%, 22k equals 91.6% and 24k is 100% pure gold. To ensure that you receive fair value for your items, we have equipment that enables us to find the gold purity of your jewelry.
Not every gold buyer in Salt Lake City pays the same for gold. The price can fluctuate a great deal depending on the store. In fact, you will find that very few will pay you top dollar for gold, silver jewelry, tea sets and platinum.

If you accept our offer to buy your gold, we collect the relevant identification from you as required by law-along with a fingerprint of your right thumb and pay you immediately.
