If you have any gemstones of value that you would like to keep, then these should be removed prior to bringing your gold to us. It is our goal to make the gold smelting process as simple and convenient for you as possible.When you bring your gold and precious metals to us, it will not be necessary for you to remove any substances from your gold, like cement or enamel.

Additionally, it will not be necessary for you to remove any unwanted stones from your scrap jewelry, as these will also be vaporized during the treatment process.

When it comes to receiving payment for your gold and other precious metals, you will have one of four options to choose from. First, we can issue you a check or cash for your scrap gold. Secondly, if your gold has been shipped to us, then we can issue a domestic or international bank wire transfer. Next, you can also choose to be paid in gold, silver, or platinum bars, coins, or rounds, or finally, we can do a combination of one of the three options. We look forward to doing business with you!
