Frequently Asked Questions
What is gold?
Gold is a rare metallic element with a melting point of 1064 degrees centigrade and a boiling point of 2808 degrees centigrade. Its chemical symbol, Au, is short for the Latin word for gold, ‘Aurum’, which literally means ‘Glowing Dawn’. It has several properties that have made it very useful to mankind over the years, notably its excellent conductive properties and its inability to react with water or oxygen.
How much gold is reused / recycled each year?
Approximately a third of the gold on the market at any one time is recycled. A five year average between 2005 and 2010 saw recycled gold take up 35% of the gold available.
How much gold is there in the World?
Estimates suggest that around 166,600 tonnes has been mined to the end of 2010. Of this, around 65% has been extracted since 1950.
What is scrap gold?
Scrap Gold is the term used for the process of recycling broken jewellery, coins and other items that are no longer wanted.
Scrap gold prices
The price of gold changes daily and reflects the live spot gold price in the world so the scrap gold price we set at Wymans Jewellers is based on the daily London LBMA price. It’s important to note that the price offered for your jewellery will be lower than the current gold market price as there is a significant process involved in smelting your gold items into raw gold material.
What items are of value?
We will buy anything gold including broken jewellery, gold coins, gold watches, they are all of value and it doesn’t matter if they are Hallmarked or not, but we’re interested in all gold, from 9ct to 22ct. Some items, however, are not suitable, for example: costume jewellery or gold plated items will have little or no value.
