Selling your gold jewelry is a very simple and quick process at Houston Gold Merchants. You bring in your gold jewelry, we test it for the purity, put it on the scale, and make you an offer! It’s that easy!

How much is your gold jewelry worth?

Your next question might be, “how much is my unwanted or broken gold jewelry worth?” It all depends on the karat weight of your gold. What is a “karat”? This is the number you will see stamped on your gold jewelry that identifies the purity. It is measured on a scale from 0 to 24. Here’s a quick glace at some markings you might see on your gold jewelry.


So for example, if you have 30 grams of 14 karat gold jewelry, you can calculate your price like this:

Today’s gold price / 31.1 * .585 * .8 * 30 = your payout

Here’s some hard numbers if today’s gold price were $1810/ oz

1810 / 31.1 * 585 * .8 * 30= $817
