No – not only do we buy all forms of gold but we also buy all forms of platinum, palladium and silver.

How do you value my jewellery?
We weigh your gold using UK Trading Standards Approved scales, designed for the jewellery industry, ensuring we measure the right weight and you get the best price. Our valuation is based on the pure precious metal content within your item.

Will the testing process damage my jewellery?
No – we use a cutting sensor equipment to ensure no damage is done to your gold. We believe that consumers have a right to receive their gold back just as they sent it in – that's why we don't perform damaging acid tests.

Can I send broken jewellery to British Gold Refinery?
Yes – all items are valued on their weight and carat, so regardless of whether the items are in good condition are not we will always give you the best price.

How can I tell if my jewellery is real before I send it in?
One simple way to tell whether your metal jewellery is actual gold or silver is to run a magnet over it. Before sending your items in, spread them out on a paper towel and run a common refrigerator magnet over them. If your items stick to the magnet, the chances are they are not real and you should not send them in.

If you're still not sure, the only sure-fire way to tell if your jewellery is real is to send it in to British Gold Refinery to be tested by a expert.

Does it matter if my jewellery is hallmarked?
No – most foreign and old jewellery is not hallmarked. The lack of a hallmark will not affect its value.

I can't use the gold calculator because I don't know the weight of the item. What do I do?
Don't worry – the calculator is only there for your added convenience. We still weigh all the items via our Certified UK Trading Standards Approved scales, calibrated to the nearest 0.01 Gram to ensure you get the best price for you gold.
