HOW A VALUATION WORKS
Our experts will calculate the value of your jewellery according to the value of the primary materials, that is the value of the gold and of the diamonds.
Analyzing Gold & Diamonds
Analyzing gold by the old-fashioned method of using acids is highly approximate. For this reason traditional pawnshops cannot afford to pay the best prices as they have to guard against possible losses when refining the gold.
We analyze gold with the latest technology Niton DXL Precious Metal Analyzer
This allows us to make a very accurate assessment of the value of your items, so that we can give you the best price possible.
Two experienced diamond graders, graduated from EGL Johannesburg are available to value your diamonds on our premises, where we have structured a perfect controlled environment with all the tools needed to give the most accurate grading and valuation.
New Jewellery Valuations
You will notice that the value second-hand is significantly different from the cost of a new piece of jewellery. The retail value of a new piece of jewellery is calculated in several parts:
materials + design + manufacture + shop overheads + advertising + VAT = total price
The minute the item leaves the store, its value is reduced by a significant margin, just as a new car loses at least 15% of its value as soon as you drive out of the showroom.
Second-hand Jewellery Valuations
When we value a piece of jewellery second-hand, we value it from its primary materials. There is little value given to the design of a piece in the second-hand jewellery market, unless it is an exceptional antique piece.
If you are selling gold jewellery to us directly we pay the full valuation of the raw materials as determined by our experts. Read more on selling gold for cash
If you are using your gold as collateral finance we lend 15% less than the value of the materials. Read more on how collateral finance works.
