How It Works - Self Shipping
  1. Search for your old, unwanted jewellery, coins, bars, scrap gold, scrap silver or scrap platinum. We will accept pretty much anything that consists of real (not plated) gold (8k - 24k), silver (800-999) or platinum (800-999) as well as a variety of gold and silver coins. However, we do not accept 'gold plated' items, so please do not ship jewellery that contains the following markings: GE or GF - Gold Filled; RGP - Rolled Gold Plate; HGE - Heavy Gold Plate; GS - Gold Shell; GP - Gold Plate; EPNS - Electroplated Nickel Silver.
    Please note: We also do not buy gemstones, so they are not included into the weight of your items. We recommend to remove them prior to shipping if you want to keep them.
  2. Sort your material by precious metals gold content (e.g. put all pieces of 14k jewellery together in one bag and all pieces of 18k jewellery into another bag).
  3. Weigh the different kinds of jewellery (e.g. all 14k pieces together and all 18 k pieces together) on a precision scale (1g resolution or better), note down the weights of each kind (e.g. 32.5 g of 14k gold, 12.2 g of 18k gold).
