If there is any life to the items that we see, we make sure they get repurposed or reused. Many items come in that just simply need to be melted and recycled. We are often our customers’ last stop, before they throw something away. We love that!

We buy Gold

We buy gold jewelry in all conditions whether it’s new, old, broken, damaged, vintage or antique. As long as it’s gold, we can buy it. We have purchased jewelry as low as 8 and 9 karat gold but most of the items we buy are the traditional 10 karat, 14 karat, 18 karat, 22 karat and 24 karat gold. Yellow gold, white gold (rhodium dipped), rose gold, and black hills gold are just some of the different types of gold jewelry we purchase. We buy anything gold including rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pendants, charms, money clips, brooches, watches, etc. If you are not sure, bring it in today, or call and make an appointment. We’ll even buy gold teeth, cups, crowns and partials.

We buy Silver

We buy silver jewelry in all conditions including damaged, unwanted, vintage, antique, or just out of style. Most silver jewelry is Sterling Silver which means that it’s 92.5% silver. Such jewelry typically has a hallmark indicating the word “sterling”, or a stamp that says it’s “.925”. and flatware (spoons, forks and knives), and hollowware (tea sets, serving trays, etc.) is marked with “Coin Silver,” which is 90% silver and can add up quickly.

We buy Diamonds

We buy diamonds of all shapes and sizes. Whether your diamond is loose or set in new, old, broken, vintage, or antique settings, we’ll still buy it! Evaluating a diamond takes much more skill and attention to detail which is why not very many companies can do it properly. A Buyer of Gold & Silver Coins & Jewelry is trained to know what to look for to give the most accurate evaluation of your diamonds. There are four main items to look for when identifying the characteristics of a diamond that will affect the overall price. These are the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

We buy Coins, Bars, Rounds, & Bullion

At A Buyer of Gold & Silver, you can sell your gold or silver coins, in any condition, for top dollar. We’ll even buy your non-precious metal coins. We buy nearly all old 2 Cent Pieces, Old Nickels including Shield, V Nickels & Buffalo Nickels, Wheat Pennies, and Indian Head Pennies. We buy old Half Dimes, Dimes, Quarters, Half Dollars, Silver Dollars, Half Cents, Large Cents and Any Other Unique Coin. Some of these coins may be worth a lot of money, and we are ALWAYS looking for more inventory!  We buy old Paper Money and Foreign Coins too! We’ll pay you for uncertified coins as well as coins that have been graded by the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation (NGC), the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), or any other reputable coin grading companies.
