Firstly, articles brought in, jewelry or used gold, are analyzed for the purpose of determining the content of precious metal contained therein, either by visual observation, by analysis of marks and contrast, or by the classical method of Touchstone (see photo on the side). We then proceed to a precision weighing, and then we perform the calculations with the aim of presenting the highest value in the market. Our calculations follow a number of criteria, such as: the daily price of gold on the London Stock Exchange, the type of articles, the state of its conservation, among others.
Our constantly updated professional experience and competence guarantee you the best evaluations in the market.
