How we test your precious metals/jewelry
The best way to accurately evaluate your valuables is to bring them into our premises so that we may test each item. This process will give you the information you need to ensure that you are selling your metal/items for the right price. SDE has over 40 years of experience in the jewelry manufacturing industry and is a 2nd generation master jeweler.
We can also appraise all items such as Diamond/Gemstone Jewelry, Watches, Coins, and Silverware.
What to expect when you visit our premises
All items will be checked to verify markings or stamps used to indicate the karat or purity percentage of the items. SDE use acid-testers and digital electronic technology, which allows us to determine all gold/metal purity content up to 24 karats (1000/000) in Yellow, White, Rose, Pure Gold, Silver, Platinum, etc.
Items are then separated by karat and alloys. In gold, normally from 9K-22K. In some situations when heavy gold plating is present on your item, we will need to slightly file some of the metal to get to the core. We may also need to do further tests to determine the correct assay.
To evaluate and sell precious metals you must be over 18 Years of age. Once you accept our offer you are required by law to present a proper photo ID and bank account number in order to effect payment.
We make the process of selling your items easy, convenient, and educational. Most important our location is safe, secure, and central in the heart of Oslo.
