Appraisal's and Determining Factors 

The assessment will begin with our associate locating the hallmark or hidden stamp on the jewelry piece.  This stamp denotes us a purity percentage to verify via an acid test.  So consequently, we will take a minute sample of flakes by swiping a special stone across a small area of the metal.  With the trace of flakes left on  the stone, we will determine the exact karat of the gold with our acid test.  The karats are the measurements of how pure the gold is.  For instance, 10k equals 41.7% pure gold, while 24k equates to 99.9% gold.  After that is determined, an exterior is examined to make sure there are no scratches or flaws on the piece. 

However, there is one other vital step to complete, which is to weigh the jewelry.  This factor is a major contribution to the determine an offering price.  In the end, we refer to the spot price of gold's daily market value to correctly calculate the highest amount possible.
