It’s very straightforward. Generally, most items are valued based on the karat and weight of the piece. In these cases, we simply determine the karat of the gold by locating a stamp that will say 10k, 14k, 18k. 22k, etc. If there’s no stamp on the item, we do an acid/scratch test to help us determine the karat. The “karat” tells us what percentage of the piece is pure gold. The table below will illustrate these purity levels. In the case of signed jewelry, diamonds, or watches, such as Rolex, Cartier, Tiffany, David Webb, and others, the “resale” market value of the piece will be assessed.
|Karat||Parts Gold to Alloy||Percentage||Fineness|
