Jewellery is the primary source of scrap gold. However, you will receive less than the value of the item, since you are not paid for the craftsmanship or beauty of the piece. This may be an attractive deal to you if you need to get money quickly. It is important, though, to know the rough estimate of your pieces.
If you don’t know the carat value, it can be determined with a gold test kit. To determine the grams of pure gold, first multiply the weight in grams of your piece by its carat value. Divide this number by 24. This is the number of grams of pure gold in the piece. Multiply this number by the price per gram number. This is the rough value of your gold jewellery.
