Frequently Asked Questions
What do you buy?
Yellow gold, white gold and rose gold in all karats and conditions (including gold coins). We also buy platinum.
What if I'm not sure if my gold is real?
There's only one way to find out! If we determine an item isn't real, we'll be happy to return it.
How much do you pay?
A lot! Gold has surged past $2000 per ounce (double where it was when we started Gold Party in 2008). Price is determined by purity, weight and the real-time spot price of gold.
When can I expect to receive payment?
Accept our offer and get paid instantly with Interac e-Transfer or paper cheque – your choice.
What if I participate, but later decide not to sell my gold?
You're under no obligation to sell. Gold Party will return your items no questions asked.
What happens if I’m not satisfied with Gold Party’s offer?
If for any reason you’re not completely satisfied with our offer, simply say so and we’ll return your items no questions asked.
Some of my unloved gold jewellery contains diamonds. Will you return them to me?
Gold Party makes every effort to remove and return valuable diamonds, however we don’t remove, return or pay for semi-precious stones, cubic zirconia or non-valuable diamonds (i.e. pave diamonds, melee diamonds, diamond chips, etc.).
I paid $500 for my ring. Can I expect the same from Gold Party?
Gold Party pays strictly for the gold content of your jewellery. Beauty and craftsmanship aren’t a consideration when appraising the value of your gold. That said, given its recent price trajectory, it’s possible the underlying value of the gold content now exceeds the retail markup.
There’s an 18K hallmark on my necklace. Is this reliable?
Not always. Although most countries require manufacturers to stamp gold jewellery, very few countries (including Canada) enforce these laws or require an independent third party to evaluate their accuracy. The stamp on your jewellry may be correct, but it’s quite common for gold jewellery to be inaccurately stamped.
What evaluation methods are used to determine the purity of the gold?
A magnet test, identification of hallmarks and, most importantly, an acid test – the gold standard for the appraisal of precious metals.
