Who is buying gold?

It seems everybody wants to buy gold these days, to make an easy buck. And easy bucks are usually made by cutting corners.
Who is buying gold is not the question. There are many options out there. But not all are equal nor do they treat their customers fairly. 

If you want to find out who is buying gold, you need to make sure they have the correct license and certifications.

Look up online what others have said about their experiences with the buyers.
Check their standing on BBB. If they dont have any reviews, dont tel that deter you - thats usually a good sign as BB usually only hears complaints, never compliments:)

You can call around but the best way is to come in and meet the buyers. Let them test your items for you. That should be a pressure free and no cost process for you. Like here at Turn It To Cash.

Turn It To Cash - Your Trusted Gold and Silver Buyers. BBB Accredited. Here to serve you with a smile 6 days a week:)

Where can I sell gold?

Where do you sell gold is usually on your mind if you have some broken gold and need money for gold. You deserve and should be treated fairly and not taken advantage of. 

There are many places that are set up to buy gold as buyers of gold. But it will be wise to do a little research and go to trustworthy and established buyers of gold. Read reviews online, call around, ask friends about their experiences, check out the BBB. We've seen food marts, gas stations, oil lubes, and barber shops - businesses that have nothing to do with jewelry buying gold. Getting your oil change and selling your gold may seem convenient but are you sure that the oil change place is using legal for trade gold scales and testing accurately?

Buyers of gold should only use legal for trade scales that are approved by their state's Department of Weights and Measures.
Buyers of gold need to be certified and licensed by the State and City. This makes them accountable. The money for gold you receive should be fair and based on the current markets. Integrity and trustworthiness are requirements of this trade. Look for buyers of gold that can measure up to that so that when you are out selling gold, you know you are being treated fairly.

When to sell gold

With Australia's largest gold miner Newcrest Mining suspending operations at its Lihir gold mine in Papua New Guinea amid a dispute with a local landowner group, about now is a great time to answer this question - when to sell gold.

When to sell gold can make a difference in your payout, as when markets are up, payouts are up too. That means you will get more money for gold when the supply may perceive to have some issues. A large mine embroiled in labor disputes mean production will slow down, thus supply will slow. Thus markets edge up.

Where can I sell gold? May I suggest Turn It To Cash, a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business serving the East Valley of Phoenix with 2 locations in Chandler.
Open Monday through Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm, and Saturdays till 4pm.

Gold Can Be Not So Glittery

For many decades, selling wholesale jewelry gave us an insight to the jewelry industry.
But that has been nothing compared to the past 5 years and what we've learnt in the gold and silver buying fields.

People come in with jewelry they've purchased at well known retail stores, chain stores and yet these items are not what they thought them to be.
We've seen jewelry that people thought to be 14K White Gold be Sterling Silver. 
We've seen jewelry that people thought to be 14K yellow gold to actually be 14K 1/20 GF.
We've seen jewelry that people thought to be diamonds to actually be Cubic Zirconias.

Now, them thinking what they have does not mean they were misled on purpose. People get confused with the various marketing verbiage that is used. Like silver on silverware may mislead one to think they are buying a real silver piece but in reality, it's silver plated. 
To the consumer, we suggest you have a clear understanding of what you are buying so you do get what you are paying for.

What should you expect when you come to a gold buyer?

Not sure about the others but this gold & silver buyer does things differently! 
Turn It To Cash, Inc are licensed precious metal buyers with a BBB+ Accredited standing. Our policy is to treat all our customers with dignity and integrity. We strive to give our customers full value of their unwanted jewelry. We are aware there are many options out there but we believe we stand above the rest because we are fair and transparent in each and every transaction. 

First off, we examine the pieces in front of you, to identify and separate by karat (18K, 14K, 10K, 925) and metal (gold, silver, platinum). We've had instances that customers came in with a silver looking chain that other places offered to buy as silver while it was marked and tested white gold!!

Then each item is tested in front of you to check for purity. 18K should be 75%, 14K should be 58.5% and 10K should be 41.6% pure. This test, while it requires us to rub the item, does not damage your items. We also use a density scale for some items, which requires us to place the solid jewelry piece in water. We want to reiterate again, this does not damage your item but helps us make an assessment to the purity of your item, which then lets us determine the price.

Once we assess the purity, we will weigh the items in front of you on our AZDWM certified and calibrated scales. We weigh in gram (gm), but can give you the weight in pennyweight (dwt) and troy ounce (t/oz )should you wish.

After the weight is determined, the items are priced per gram based on the karat and we make you an offer on what your gold is worth. The price is based on the current gold market price, thus it changes daily but rest assured, it is the best price everyday. We believe in treating our customers fairly - so you can tell your family and friends about us too.

Be it a diamond ring you do not want anymore, smashed earrings, platinum wire or coins, we are able to buy these from you. Tested, weighed and priced all in front of you.

Unwanted diamond rings? We buy them!
We buy Platinum TC wires
We buy and don't pass judgement - yes, these were earrings once upon a time:)
Silver bullion? We'll buy silver junk coins too!
