English family goldsmiths
Old English family goldsmiths business J.Blundell and Sons have been in the jewellery industry for nearly 200 years. The company emphasis has just recently changed to precious metals buying, moving away from sheet, wire and findings.
Calculate the worth of gold
We calculate the worth of any gold on the day it is received, based on the AM gold fix that day. However, payments are also dependent on the pureness and amount of gold. Gold is given a fixed price, twice daily, by the London Gold Fixing – a procedure enabling the market to trade at the same quoted price.
The fineness of your gold
Purity is measured by how many parts per thousand are pure. You can often tell the fineness of your gold by the number, or hallmark that is written on it. One popular English hallmark is 375, or 9ct, which means the gold’s purity is 375 parts per thousand (37.5%) pure. Please note that a number on its own, without an official assay office stamp. It is not considered a hallmark and does not necessarily represent the true purity of the article in question.
Precious metals buying
As always, we will continue supplying the same outstanding service ensuring truly positive customer experience. The company emphasis has just recently changed to precious metals buying, moving away from sheet, wire and findings. We buy scrap gold, scrap platinum old jewellery and pay cash for gold.
Melting and assay charges
Our gold melting and gold assay service have a 24hr turnaround on most occasions at a cost of £25. Any other melting and assay charges vary on the type of metals being tested. The assays for these are usually between three to four working days. Sweeps from an incinerating process will take approximately 1 to 2 weeks depending on the type of material.
