How Selling Jewelry Works at Oro Express Mesa

Selling jewelry is a quick and painless process that allows our customers to raise hundreds of dollars in mere minutes.  We have strict procedures that our employees follow meaning that every piece of jewelry is treated the same, and all the cash values are as high as can be.  There’s two procedures we follow depending on the type of jewelry

Gold, Silver, and Platinum Jewelry

When it comes to gold, silver, or platinum jewelry without precious gems, our valuation process is quick and easy.  When you bring your jewelry down to our Mesa pawn shop, one of our associates will take your piece and perform a brief visual inspection.  We’re primarily looking for two things: the overall quality of the piece of jewelry, and a stamp indicating purity.  These stamps are usually hidden in out of sight places on jewelry like the inside of a ring, or on the clasps of necklaces and earrings.  For gold, this stamp can be 10 kt, 14 kt, 18 kt, 20 kt, or 24 kt.  These values range from roughly 40% purity to 99.9% purity, obviously affecting the overall value.  For silver, there’s primarily only two stamps, but there can be others when it comes to things like Native American Jewelry.  These two are 925, or 999 which are 92.5% and 99.9% respectively.  To verify these, our associate will perform an acid test on flakes from the piece of jewelry.  These are collected using a stone that does no damage to the jewelry whatsoever.

The last step is to figure out the weight of the piece of jewelry.  All of our prices are based on the gram weight of the item.  We update these prices daily, so you can ensure that you’re getting the fair market price every day of the week.  Our associate will then make you a cash offer.  This is the amount you’ll walk out of our store with cash in.  No checks, no cards, no nonsense.  When you accept (which you should, nobody pays higher than us for jewelry in Mesa, Tempe, or Chandler) we’ll collect a few signatures and then send you on your way with cold, hard cash in hand.

Diamond Jewelry

So this procedure is really an extension upon the gold, silver, and platinum jewelry procedure because diamonds are typically embedded in this jewelry.  Because diamonds are so complex, it really does take a trained professional to come up with a proper valuation of its worth.  There’s a huge number of cuts and colors that diamonds can come in all with varying prices and demand in the resale market.  A diamond jewelry buyer needs to have more than just experience with physical diamonds, but experience buying and selling diamonds as well.  At Oro Express Mesa Pawn and Gold, all of our associates have been dealing with the buying and selling of diamonds for years.  Our Mesa, Tempe, and Chandler residents can always rest assured they’re getting the fair market value for their diamonds.

Now, the actual process is fairly quick.  Our associate begins by coming up with a value for the precious metal (gold, silver, or platinum) that the diamond is set in, and then will move on to coming up with a separate valuation for the diamond.  Our associate is primarily assessing the diamond according to the Four C’s — Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat.  Cut and Color can be determined with the naked eye, however Clarity is where our expert training comes into play.  Our associates, using a magnifying glass known as a loupe, analyze the inside of the diamond looking for inclusions and any other imperfections that might exist, if there are any.  While the first three are obviously important, the fourth and last C is the most important.  Diamond size is measured in Carats, and this obviously has a large impact on its value.  Combining all of these metrics, our associate will come up with a value for the diamond.

The valuation of the gold, silver, or platinum and diamond is combined to make your cash offer.  As the top jewelry buyer in Mesa, Tempe, and Chandler, our customers can be confident that this price is not only fair, but is as high as can possibly be.  Should you accept, we’ll collect a few signatures and put cash in your hand right on the spot.  No checks, no nonsense, sell jewelry for cash in minutes at Oro Express Mesa Pawn and Gold.
