What type of Gold items do you buy?

At Tulsa Gold & Gems, we pay you the most for your scrap gold, gold jewelry, gold coins, dental gold, and even gold bullion and rounds.  We will evaluate your gold items and give you the highest price for the value of your items.  Typically, items made of gold are marked with a karat weight. The term “karat” in relation to gold is the measure of gold purity by mass.  Inspection of your gold pieces should indicate a specific karat weight. The price you receive for your gold depends on the karat value that it contains.

We do not buy anything gold plated.  These items are generally marked “plated” or H.G.E. (Heavy Gold Electroplate).

Common Karat markings found on gold jewelery:

  • For 10 karat – 10k, 10kt, 417 ( 41.7% pure gold)
  • For 14 karat – 14k, 14kt, 585 ( 58.5% pure gold)
  • For 18 karat – 18k, 18kt, 750 ( 75.0% pure gold)

Diamond

What types of diamonds do you buy?

We purchase any sized diamond. If your diamond is GIA certified, please bring your certification with you when we evaluate your diamond. All diamonds will be evaluated by a certified gemologist and a value will be determined based on clarity, color, cut, and carat weight.

Diamond Characteristics

The Four C’s

A diamond is valued based upon four characteristics: color, cut, clarity and carat weight, often referred to as the “Four C’s”. Each characteristic is analyzed and measured to determine the quality of the diamond.

Diamond Characteristics

The Four C’s

A diamond is valued based upon four characteristics: color, cut, clarity and carat weight, often referred to as the “Four C’s”. Each characteristic is analyzed and measured to determine the quality of the diamond.

Color

Color is measured on a scale from colorless to shades of color with colorless being the rarest and most expensive. The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) uses a color grading scale of D-Z, colorless to shades of color respectively. As mentioned above, diamonds come in different colors, and anything outside this color scale is referred to as “Fancy Colors”. The rarest and most expensive diamonds are considered Fancy Colors, which include: red, pink, blue, and green. Different diamond cuts have been developed to best utilize a diamond’s material properties. The cut of a diamond creates a somewhat symmetrical arrangement of facets that modifies the shape and appearance of the diamond. Several cuts have been used when shaping and polishing a diamond with the most common being:

Clarity

Clarity is judged upon the amount of inclusions and blemishes a diamond has. An inclusion is growth crystals inside a diamond whereas blemishes can be scratches and nicks on the diamond’s surface. Clarity in diamonds is graded using the following scale:

  • F1 Flawless – no inclusions or blemishes within view under 10X magnification
  • IF Internally Flawless – no inclusions but minor blemishes when viewed under 10X magnification
  • VVS1 & VVS2 Very Very Slightly Included – minute inclusions difficult to view under 10X magnification
  • VS1 & VS2 Very Slightly Included – minute inclusions commonly crystals, clouds or feathers when viewed under 10X magnification
  • SI1 & SI2 Slightly Included – inclusions are contained, such as crystals, clouds, knots, cavities, cleavage and feathers when viewed under 10X magnification
  • I1 – I3 Included – inclusions such as large crystals or large feathers viewed under 10X magnification and may affect the transparency and brilliance without magnification

Carat Weight

Carat weight (ct.) is the unit of measurement to weigh a diamond. One carat equals 1/142nd of an ounce, or 1/5th of a gram. Diamonds are weighed into a thousandth of a carat(0.001) and then rounded to the nearest hundredth. Diamond sizes are also referred to as “Points”. One carat is divided into 100 points, each point is 1/100th of a carat. A “10-point” diamond weighs 1/10th of a carat and a “50-point” stone weighs half a carat (5/10th).

Diamond Certification

A diamond that has been certified is the only assurance a consumer has that they are buying a quality diamond. There are several gemological laboratories that certify diamonds with the most recognized being:

  • G.I.A. – Gemological Institute Of America
  • A.G.S. – American Gem Society
  • E.G.L. – European Gemological Laboratory
  • I.G.I. – International Gemological Institute

It is important to note that diamond gradings between the different gemological laboratories are not always consistent. Since the grading of color and clarity is based upon subjective judgment, different grades can be given to diamonds that are borderline between two grades.

WATCHES

WATCHES

What types of watches do you buy?

Many watches are made out of precious metals, however, in today’s mass market, a large portion are either plated or simply gold in color. These are brands like Fossil, Citizen, Seiko etc. The brands that are considered fine watches, which we purchase and loan against, include: Rolex, Cartier, Piaget etc. Please bring any box and/or papers with your fine watch in order to get the best price. If you happen to have an old pocket watch, it might be plated or gold filled, but it can be hard to tell. Bring it into Tulsa Gold & Gems and our experts will evaluate it.

PLATINUM

What other types of precious metals do you buy?

In addition to gold and silver, we also buy platinum and palladium.

Platinum is silvery-white in color and is often mistaken for white gold. It is denser and more difficult to fabricate than gold, due to its higher melting point. One feature of platinum is that it doesn’t fade or tarnish. It is thirty times more rare then gold, and is more durable than other jewelry metals due to it’s density. It doesn’t wear away or change it’s shape, which is perfect for a lifetime of wear.

Platinum jewelry normally contains the following markings: 900Pt, 950 Plat, or Plat.

Platinum in jewelry is actually an alloyed group of six heavy metals, including platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium. These other metals are so similar to platinum in weight and chemistry that most were not even distinguished from each other until early in the nineteenth century.
