Have Your Jewelry Appraised and Sold While You Watch the Entire Process
Safely Through Large Glass Windows, 
And Be Safe From the Coronavirus Pandemic

You safely watch your jewelry through large glass windows while David does your free no obligation verbal appraisal; your jewelry never leaves your sight during the entire evaluation!  You communicate with David through a hands-free "no touch" electronic speak-through device installed in the window.  You’re the only person in the lobby, so you’re not breathing anyone else’s air but your own, and we space the appointments apart so that no one else is in the lobby with you.  We also installed a HEPA filtration system that scrubs any virus from the air every 10 minutes.    


Want to Sell Your Gold For the Best Price?

David now has the Thermo Scientific Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester, which gives the exact gold content of your jewelry without damaging it. Nearly every gold buyer uses the inexpensive $50 “scratch acid test”, meaning they damage your jewelry by scraping it or filing it down to test it with acid, which gives only a rough approximation of the actual gold content. The $16,750 Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester provides a digital readout of the exact gold content of your jewelry in seconds without even touching it, and you get to see the results for yourself while watching your jewelry the whole time through the window on the device. The Thermo Scientific Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester is the most accurate gold testing device available.
