Gold, silver, palladium, platinum, diamonds, and more……

What We Buy

Coins , gold, silver, palladium, platinum, diamonds, and more.

We are a jewelry shop so that is our specialty! We buy and  fine jewelry. We also offer free appraisals for individuals, inheritances and estates.

We buy all forms of gold. The line between gold and money is not well defined. Historically gold was often used as money, but today most gold is used for jewelry purposes. Due to all the economic issues in the last few years gold has gained a lot of attention. Although the price moves up and down everyday, being a traded commodity, generally, the gold price is at a high point these days.

Unfortunately, these high prices have created an opportunity for unscrupulous businesses to take advantage of the public. Many fly-by-night stores have popped up all over Chicago offering the “highest prices” (lowest) paid, even some people without stores, just traveling around buying (stealing) gold. The absolute worst hustle is the mail-in gold services. Don’t trust your wealth to these places. It’s your gold, it’s your wealth; you should not lose it because you are converting your gold into cash.

Historically, banks are where you would take your gold, silver, etc., but for whatever reason they are no longer in that business, at least not to the general public. Therefore, the local coin shop is the business that is open to the public when it comes to these matters. Everyone claims the meaningless offer of “highest prices”. At cottage jewelry, we can give you more money because we do a high volume of business. The refinery gives us better prices and we can pass that on to you.

We buy all forms of silver. Silver is a metal that holds value, just as gold does. But the majority of gold buyers will not buy silver. A few reasons for this:
1.The testing process is more complicated.
2.The market price for silver tends to move around quicker than gold (either, direction),
3. Refiners do not accept small amounts.

We also buy most forms of palladium and platinum,diamonds.

5 Steps to Successful Gold Selling in Wilmette

5 Steps to Successful Gold Selling Wilmette

How to determine whether you are getting a good deal?

With the gold price making periodic new highs and the economy suffering, more and more people are rummaging through the jewelry box for ways to raise extra cash. How can you determine whether the price you are offered represents a fair deal? With a few tools and a little bit of investigation, you can arm yourself with better information BEFORE you go on your gold selling quest. An educated consumer is a savvy consumer, so this is the best way to make sure you get the right price. You will need to acquire a magnifying glass, a sensitive scale capable of measuring in grams (such as a decent kitchen scale), a calculator or computer, and your old gold jewelry.

Gold selling is a very easy way to raise cash if you know what you are doing. Follow these easy steps:
Using your magnifying glass, determine the karat weight (10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, etc.) by looking for hallmarks on the individual jewelry pieces. The hallmark can be anywhere, but is typically on the clasp of a bracelet, chain or necklace; on the inside of a ring; on the post of an earring; and so forth. Separate your jewelry into different piles sorted by the different karat weights, or purity.
Weigh each pile, and make a note of how many grams of each different type of karat weight jewelry you have. Multiply your totals for each purity level as follows:
9kt weight x 0.375
10kt weight x 0.417
14kt weight x 0.583
18kt weight x 0.75
24kt weight x 1.00
Add all the new totals together.
Determine the current gold price by checking a site such as www.kitco.com or www.goldprice.org. Divide the current price by 31.1 to determine the Spot Price Per Gram.
Multiply the Spot Price Per Gram x your total pure gold (from Step 3). This is the Full Spot Market Value of your gold jewelry.

If gold selling were just about finding someone to buy your gold, it would be much easier, but you also want to find the right price. Make sure you follow the above steps as near to the day on which you plan to sell your gold as possible. When offered a price, compare it to the value you have already determined. Gold and silver buyers have to cover their costs, which include refining or melting the jewelry they buy, marketing and promotion, equipment, rents and administration. For very small amounts of gold, you can expect to receive 40-50% less than the Full Spot Market Value. For larger amounts of gold, you can expect to receive just 10-20% less.
