caution when selling your gold



Promises of high prices.

Beware of companies promising high prices. If it seems to good to be true, it usually is. Companies often use this tactic to secure a meeting with you, only to disappoint you once they have your gold or unwanted jewellery in their possession.


Mailing your gold?


Take care when mailing your gold to someone you don't know. Unfortunately there's an inherent risk when dealing with the South African postal and courier services. The best way to avoid this is to simply not do it. Keep what's precious to you close to you until you're happy with the price you've been offered. Take photo's of your jewellery to make sure you get everything back should you choose to keep it.


Your safety comes first.


Beware of individuals requesting to meet you in areas or locations you are unfamiliar with. Your safety comes first. Make sure you are fully aware of who you are meeting. if you're unsure - ask for ID.


Keep your karats separate.


Don't let jewellery of different karat value be weighed together. Some dealers will weigh all jewelry together and pay you for the lowest karat value. Separate your jewelry by karat value. If you're unsure of the karat, ask the buyer to test your gold or jewellery before you agree on a price.


Beware of hidden costs.


We provide higher rates because there are no processing fees, service charges, sales commissions, or hidden costs. The amount we offer you for your old and unwanted gold jewellery is what you receive.


Big advertising costs BIG money.


It's common sense - advertising, especially main stream high-end media like radio and TV is expensive. Where do you think the money comes from? You guessed it - your pocket.
