Interested in learning more about these options and how you can turn your gold into cash? Be sure to explore our How to Sell page for detailed information on the process for selling your gold and precious metal items.

How do we determine the value of your gold items?

The Gold Smart® team uses several factors to determine an offer for your gold items. This includes:

  1. The overall weight of gold and silver in a piece of jewellery, coin, scrap, or bullion.
  2. The purity of that metal.
  3. The quantity of gold.
  4. The current trading market price.

In general, the heavier the metal weight and the higher its purity, the higher the offer we can make to you. Once Gold Smart® determines the value, we will present you with a cash price to buy your precious metal items — with absolutely no pressure and no hassle.

We have provided a ‘Gold Price Calculator’ to enable you to get a quick idea of the value of your gold items. Please note, this is an indication ONLY, and we do need to see the items in person to determine a precise weight and purity of the items you wish to sell.

The Gold Smart® Gold Price Calculator can be found on our What We Buy page.

Why should you consider selling your gold and silver today?

Here are a few compelling reasons:

  1. Surging Prices: Gold and silver prices have significantly increased over recent years, reaching near-record levels. This surge is motivating investors and making the market for unwanted or broken gold jewellery especially lucrative.
  2. Market Stability: Despite the precious metal market’s relative stability, buy prices are subject to rapid changes influenced by the NZD to USD exchange rate. Selling now could maximise your return.
  3. Financial Freedom: Many New Zealanders choose Gold Smart® for the sale of their precious metals, enjoying the freedom to save, spend, or invest their returns in ways that best suit their financial goals.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to capitalise on your investments. The current market conditions offer a prime time to sell your gold and silver.

What is Gold Smart looking to buy?

Whether your item is old, outdated, unwanted, or broken, Gold Smart® is ready to offer a great price for your gold items. We purchase:

  1. Gold jewellery and scrap in any condition, weight, and fineness.
  2. Other precious metals including platinum, palladium, and silver.
  3. Gold and silver coins, bullion, and bars.

What happens to the stones in the jewellery?

As Gold Smart® does not purchase stones, any gems, diamonds, or other precious stones in your jewellery may be able to be removed by our staff and returned to you upon request. Feel free to inquire about this option with our friendly staff when having your items assessed.
