Jeweler Littleton, CO
I am back because you requested it! I am reopening my Jeweler Littleton, CO shop. We have been open since 1978 and have opened in a new location on South Broadway.
We buy gold, but so does everyone else. How do you know the difference between getting a fair offer or are getting ripped off? Are you tired of people saying they pay the most, and then pay nothing after you spent you precious time going to see them!
Here is why we pay top dollar.
I am a GIA Graduate Gemologist and a Jeweler! I have been buying diamonds for 30 years and have been selling to many of your local jewelry stores.
FACT: How can these shop claim to pay the most and yet know nothing about what they are buying. Most places have part time employees that know little about diamonds and Jeweler Littleton, CO. And as a result they have to plan what they pay YOU as a result of the employee’s in-experience. In many cases very few locations have a gemologist at each location!
We support Jewelersforchildren.org
It was the local news channels and many customers that I have done business with out of my home who encouraged me to get back into business, to help the many individuals trying to understand what their coins and jewelry are worth.
FACT: Most places you see advertising pay only 50% of the value. With the most recent survey saying that less than 3% of the stores are paying over 75% or slightly more. (even 75% of the value is low)
PERSONAL NOTE: This made me feel sick!
The most important thing any news outlet and authority have said was, DO NOT send your gold in the mail. The second thing they said not to do was, DO NOT sell your gold, coins and diamonds to someone who you have never met in a hotel or motel. They will be gone with your money the next day.
PERSONAL NOTE: Never do anything with someone you don’t know in a hotel or motel.
Find someone with a honest and experience and background and in Jeweler Littleton, CO.
Find a coin store that will go through your coins and pay you a premium for the good stuff. In most cases this will take time. You will watch them pick up every coin and inspect each one individually.
Diamonds take time to properly grade. If someone offers to pay you just because of the size of the diamond, do not sell to them. Remember the 4c of diamonds when selling Color – Cut – Clarity – Carat weight.
Jewelry should be tested individually. Many times I have seen stores separate your gold into piles for each karat weight (10k – 14k – 18k) and often they put 14k jewelry into the 10k pile to cheat you as well. Know what have when you take it in. KNOW EACH PIECE.
We are your local experts! Stop by us FIRST or LAST. We are positive that our offer will not be beat. – – – We know our competitors!
We buy rare coins,
We buy bullion coins!
We buy diamonds and gems, yes gems sapphires rubies tourmaline and more.

So I am back! Give me a try it will be worth your time, then you can tell your friends!

How much are my silver coins worth?
The table below shows the value of the silver content of various coins commonly sold as junk silver. Some coins such as the briefly issued War Nickels contain 35% silver, some coins like the 1965-1970 Kennedy Halves contain 40% silver, while most junk silver is comprised of 90% silver coins. To determine the value of the silver content, junk silver should be divided into various groupings based on the percentage silver content.
All silver value figures are based on $50.00 per ounce silver. To determine the actual silver value, multiply the silver weight by the current spot price of silver.

The purity of gold is expressed in Karats, not to be confused with the “carat” (the weight of gemstones.) Pure gold is 24k, but this is too soft for everyday use in jewelry. As a result, gold is alloyed with other metals to make it more durable and wearable. The type of alloy used will also affect the color of the gold.
The Karat of the jewelry will tell you what purity the gold is:
9k gold is 37.5% pure (mixed with 62.5% alloy)
10k gold is 41.6% pure (mixed with 58.4% alloy)
12k gold is 50% pure (mixed with 50% alloy)
14k gold is 58.3% pure (mixed with 41.7% alloy)
18k gold is 75% pure (mixed with 25% alloy)
20k gold is 83.3% pure (mixed with 16.7% alloy)
22k gold is 91.6% pure (mixed with 8.4% alloy)
GOLD is also bought in different forms, such as bar’s and coins.
Bars and Coins come in different sizes.
Typical sizes of bars and Coins :
100 troy ounce,
50 troy ounce,
10 troy ounce,
1 troy ounce,
1/2 troy ounce,
1/4 troy ounce,
1/10 troy ounce.
Do you have unused diamonds and old jewelry that you no longer wear? Why not sell your diamonds to us and take the cash and do something fun! Our diamond buyer is a graduate gemologist with over 30+years of experience. Knowing the diamond market, he is able to offer a fair price to you. Where does your diamond go? It is recycled or resold to a nationwide network of jewelry designers that use your diamond in new jewelry for someone else to enjoy. Recycling your diamond lowers demand for conflict diamonds and environmentally bad diamond mining practices.
A diamond carat is different than gold carat. The gold carat indicates purity based on 24 units and pure gold being 24 carats. One diamond carat, mined and even synthetics diamonds, equals 200 milligrams or .02 grams (0.007055 oz). The word carat derives from the carob bean. Gem dealers used to balance their scales with carob beans because these beans have similar weight.
Not all diamonds are white or colorless. Impurities give diamonds a shade of blue, red, orange, yellow, green and even black. Vivid blue, green and pink mined diamonds are the rarest. They are not the rarest gemstones, however. That title goes to a pure red ruby and real natural red rubies can be more expensive per carat than lesser quality diamonds.
Diamonds actually are found in abundance; thousands are mined every year. 80% of them are not suitable for jewellery – they are used in industry or used on inexpensive rings.
Silver has been viewed for a long time as a “PRECIOUS METAL.” Silver Is used to make jewelry, ornaments, tinsels (hence the term “silverware “), and coins. Today, silver is also used in electrical contacts and conductors, in mirrors , and in photographic film. Silver even has medical uses as a disinfectant.
Sterling silver: Sterling silver is 92.5% pure (alloyed with 7.5% of other metals most common being copper.)Sterling is expressed by “925” or “Sterling.” The minimal standard to be considered sterling is 92.5% purity.
Fine silver: Fine silver is 99.9% pure.
Coin silver: Coin Silver is 90% pure (alloyed with 10% of other metals.) Also knows as “ONE NINE” or “ONE NINE FIVE” silver.
Like gold pure silver is generally too soft for producing functional objects. because of this silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength while preserving the beauty of the precious metal.
Here is some common silver purity used around the world:
999.9 (Ultra-fine silver used by Royal Canadian Mint in the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf)
999 Fine silver used in Good Delivery bullion bars, also known asthree nines fine)
980 (common standard used in Mexico ca.1930 – 1945)
958 (equivalent to Britannia silver) 950 (equivalent to French 1st Standard)
925 (equivalent to Sterling silver)
900 (equivalent to Coin silver in the USA, also known as one nine fine)
835 (a standard predominantly used in Germany after 1884)
833 (common standard used in continental silver especially among the Dutch, Swedish, and Germans)
830 (common standard used in older Scandinavian silver)
800 (minimum standard for silver in Germany after 1884; Egyptian silver; Canadian silver circulating coinage)
750 (uncommon silver standard found in older German, Swiss and Austro-Hungarian silver)
