FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) Will I get market price for my scrap gold and old jewelry?
The market price of gold is based on 999.9 purity and it is given in troy ounces. Most of the gold , scrap gold and old jewelry that is usually sold ends up as scrap and can be from 10 carats to 18 carats. As such, most scrap gold will not fetch anywhere near spot market prices. More importantly, there is no consideration given for the craftsmanship and or emotional value of the items.
2) How is it possible for you to offer more than other gold jewelry and scrap gold buyers such as pawn shops, estate jewelry buyers, jewelers, gold brokers, Internet “mail in” companies or the companies with the TV ads?
The answer is simple. Pawn shops, estate jewelry buyers, jewelers and gold brokers are resellers. They resell the scrap gold up the chain until it reaches a corporate buyer such as Amerivest Gold Corp. Consequently, the pawn shops, estate jewelry buyers, jewelers and brokers have to pay you as little as they can to extend their profit margin. Internet "mail in" companies on the other hand, who rely on search engine advertising and companies that rely on extensive TV ad campaigns spend a lot of money and in the end they transfer that cost to you. By selling directly to Amerivest Gold, you deal directly with a company who can and will pay you more for your gold. It’s that simple.
