Other Gold Items

We buy scrap gold, dental gold, gold nuggets, alluvial gold, yellow, white and rose gold.

Scrap Gold

We buy • broken pieces you have leftover from getting a ring or chain fixed • the gold ring shanks that have had the stones removed • the delicate broken bracelets that have lived a full life and damaged ear rings in pairs and singles.

We buy 9kt,14kt,18kt, 22kt and 24kt gold pieces that you have been accumulating and wondering what to do with them. Gather up your scrap gold pieces, bring them in and we’ll test them in front of you, assess the purity and pay you cash. Put those broken pieces to use and buy a new ring or chain. Bring in your jewellery box and we’ll test the pieces that you're not sure are gold. We’ll separate the items into their respective karats and quote on the total gold purity according to the daily gold price. If you have some melted down mixed gold from your jewellers left-overs we can test the karat of your jeweller's bars.

Dental Gold

We pay cash for all dental gold (affixed with teeth or without). We buy all • dental crowns • fillings • gold dental plates • all colours of dental gold and dental gold from 12 karat to 24 karat. You can exchange your unwanted dental gold for cash 7 days a week at our Marrickville office.

Yellow, white and rose gold

We buy all colours and grades of gold, from 8 to 24 karat. Different grades of gold mean that the respective pieces are alloyed to various degrees with other metals, such as copper, zinc, silver, palladium or platinum.

For example, 9kt gold (Hallmarked 375) = 37.5% pure gold content. The balance (62.5%) being made up from copper, nickel or silver. This gold is occasionally called rose or pink gold due to the copper alloy, which provides a red/pink hue. If you have a 9kt chain weighing 60 grams it will contain 22.5 grams of pure gold. The balance (37.5g) will contain a mixture of either copper, nickel or silver.

14kt gold (Hallmarked 585) = 58.5% pure gold content. The balance (41.5%) being made from copper, nickel or silver. If you have a 14kt chain weighing 55 grams it will contain 32.17 grams of pure gold. The balance (22.83g) will contain a mixture of either copper, nickel or silver.

18kt gold (Hallmarked 750) = 75% pure gold content. The balance (25%) being made from copper, nickel or silver. If you have an 18kt curb link bracelet that weighs 80 grams it will contain 60 grams of pure gold. The balance (20g) will contain a mixture of either copper, nickel or silver.

22kt gold (Hallmarked 916) = 91.6% pure gold content. The balance (8.4%) is generally made from copper. If you have a 22kt gold bangle that weighs 50 grams it will contain 45.8 grams of pure gold. The balance (4.2g) will be copper.

Your white gold pieces (if made in the last 20 years) are generally alloyed with nickel to create the 'white' component, although it's more silver than white. Older white gold jewellery (Pre 1970) may contain silver, platinum or palladium as alloys.

We can test for these precious metals and pay you accordingly.
