At Richard Dolgin Private jeweler we pay the highest prices in the area for your gold, platinum, silver and diamonds.
I will be happy to sit down with you to personally evaluate your valuables to establish which items are actual diamonds, precious metals, costume, or gold filled. During the process I will make recommendations if some of your heirloom or antique jewelry is too valuable to scrap. I can help you sell these pieces intact to optimize your cash return.
Don't take for granted that the jewelry in that old bag is all costume. I have found the family heirloom jewelry worth thousands of dollars in bags of relics considered to be trash. Come and take advantage of my years of experience to be sure you get the optimum dollars for your valuables.
We have all the modern tools to asses your valuables so we can pay you the highest price based on today's market. Bring in all your jewelry because you never know what is real and what is costume.
Most jewelry is a percentage of gold. In other words if a piece of jewelry is 10 karat gold, you will be paid for the 41.6% of pure gold and the 59.4% of alloy is melted away.

When you sell precious metal that are percentage gold there are alloys mixed to lower the percentage of pure metal, you do not get paid for the alloy.

100 % = 1000 fine = 24 karat
91.7 % = 917 fine = 22 karat
75.0 % = 750 fine = 18 karat

41.6 % = 416 fine = 10 karat
