Precious Metals Refinery wants your gold! We are paying the highest prices for gold coins, jewelry, bars, or any gold items.

What determines the price of my gold item?

Gold is soft and often mixed with other metals when incorporated into jewelry. When you hear gold referred to as 24-karat, or 10-karat, this refers to the purity, or amount of gold in an object. Gold items can range anywhere from 24-karat, which is pure gold, to “low grade”, which is anything less than 8-karats. At PMB, we purchase all gold items, no matter the purity. We also purchase gold-filled items, (which usually contain around 1 – 2% gold) for the same price of sterling silver, and rolled gold items, as long as they are non-magnetic.

How does PMB determine the value of gold?

All of our Precious Metals Buyers locations have a state-of-the-art X-Ray gun that tells us the precise elemental analysis of alloy materials in an object. Thermo Fisher Scientific, a reputable company and leader in lab equipment, makes the machine; PMB uses their Niton XRF Analyzer model. The machine is easy to use, tests your gold or jewelry within seconds without damaging it, and allows us to have accurate results on the precise elemental makeup of your item. With the help of this tool, we know the exact amount of gold in an object, so we can guarantee our customers the highest payout possible.

Unsure how much gold is in something you own? If you have an item you think is gold or low karat gold, we offer an X-Ray service.
