If you like the price, we will proceed to test the items to validate the purity.
- Electronically test each item.
- Ensure the purity reading matches that of any markings.
- Larger items will need to be filed to re-test beneath the surface (this is to ensure an item is not just gold/silver plated).
- Larger or high karat items (18K - 22K) may also be filed and tested using traditional acid tests.
- Any larger stones or other material will be removed at this point. (With your permission)
- Any unmarked items will be categorized into the correct purity, and any discrepancies will be noted/adjusted.
