How Gold is Appraised for Pricing

If you’d like to sell gold in San Jose, you’ll want to have it first appraised by experts. Goods made of gold can vary greatly in price depending on the purity of the gold used and the weight of the items in question. Fortunately for those interested in selling, gold dealers in San Jose will be able to give you an accurate quote on the value of your goods.

The most important step in determining the value of a gold piece is finding its purity, measured in Karats. Karat ratings measure the ratio of gold to base metals present in gold alloy, and the scale is divided into 24 parts. Thus, 24-Karat gold is almost completely pure, made of 99.9% gold, while 12-Karat gold is composed of 50% gold and 50% base metals. Gold jewelry commonly sold in the US can range in composition from 10-Karat to 22-Karat gold. Naturally, the higher the percentage of gold present in a piece, the more valuable it will be. Gold prices in San Jose or elsewhere will also depend on the weight of your gold.

Before you sell gold in San Jose, be sure to bring your goods to an expert who will have the tools necessary to determine their value. Gold dealers in San Jose will be able to both weigh your gold and determine its purity, after which they will be able to give you a price quote. Gold prices in San Jose, like everywhere else, fluctuate with the market, so the quote you receive this week may be higher or lower than what you’d receive next week.
