Your own gold
This can be done in 2 ways:
- Hand in gold for a discount on your invoice
- Hand in gold to melt and use in your new jewelry
The price of your gold
For both methods, we give the gold price of the daily exchange rate. So we buy the gold from you. The value of this differs per carat gold. The higher the carat, the more value of your gold. Gemstones and other materials are excluded and have no return value.
Hand in or process gold
You can choose that you only hand in the gold, and we will process it in big amounts, together with other handed in gold. Or you can choose to have the gold processed separately in a new piece of jewelry especially for you.
The first option is very simple. The gold that you no longer do anything with, you hand in at the daily rate as a discount on the invoice. Then we don’t use this gold for your jewelry specifically, but it is melted and processed in larger numbers with other people’s handed in gold.
Processing costs are fixed for the first option, because it involves more labor. It takes time to dismantled the jewelry and the removal of gemstones, etc. In addition, we make your jewelry separately from the regular orders because it concerns your own gold. For this we charge costs between €75 - 150.
Please note: not all models are suitable for using your own gold. We are happy to discuss the options with you in our studio, but you can also call or email us.
Does your gold have a lot of sentimental value? Then processing your own gold is of course more than worth it. If you only want to save on a new item, returning it may be a cheaper option.
If you have any questions based on this information, you can always email or book an appointment and visit the studio.
