Company Motto

We strongly believe in transparency in our process with customers. Our company motto is “People Taking Care of People”.

There are several ways to evaluate gold and precious metals. We choose to authenticated through DUX Bullion Authentication (Density, Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement and X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry), and ECM (Electrical Conductivity Measurement) standards. At times not all of these methods can be conducted, depending on if the gold is set in jewelry, a coin authenticated and through thin packaging. Note: We are not currently using the density method, as we are using 3 other steps explained at the bottom of this page.

  1. Weight: During this processes we use our precision scale to determine the weight of the item or items.
  2. Karat: We utilize our State of the art Niton X-ray fluorescence spectrometers (XRF), a Kee Electronic Tester or an Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) tool. At times we may utilize the standard Acid Test, but only in rare cases or at our smaller locations. Depending on the level of authentication needed, we have the ability to utilize every tool necessary, or outsource a portion of this to a local partnership.
  3. Valuation: We look up live market value and make an offer depending on your needs, or produce a certified report for valuation (Certified Reports Coming Soon – December).

“Gold, along with silver, has long been known as the primary means of real money. For thousands of years, gold has been used in trade. It is real, scarce, cannot be artificially reproduced, and has inherent value. Gold has stood the test of time more than any other form of currency. You won’t find any other paper money that was around hundreds of years ago, but you will see that gold is just as in demand now as it was then.” Reference: https://www.jmbullion.com/gold/
