How It Works

We offer a unique gold buying service here at J.V. Jewellers & Pawnbrokers where you can trade in your unwanted gold for cash. By using our free valuation service, you can send us your gold and receive a quote. Once you have accepted the offer from one of our experts, we will transfer the money directly to your account. Our prices for gold reflect the current market trends and we aim to offer you the best deal possible at the time for your item. You can sell us your gold in a few easy steps:

Step 1

Use our online calculator and input the purity and weight of your item to get an instant estimate for how much your item is worth.

Step 2

If you are happy with the estimate, register as a user on our site, request a delivery pack, and send us your item for free using our prepaid Royal Mail Special Delivery® envelope.

Step 3

One of our experts will then value your gold and provide you with a final quote. This will be valid for 24 hours.

Step 4

You are then free to accept or reject the offer. If you accept, we will deposit the money into your bank account. If you reject, we will arrange for the safe return of your item at your expense.


Our delivery pack allows you to send us your item via Royal Mail Special Delivery®, insured up to £500 for your protection. You can do this securely by visiting a local Post Office® and using our pre-paid envelope. If you reject our offer, you will however have to cover the return postage of your item. You will be able to arrange this with a member of our staff.

You can also come and visit us in person for an in–store valuation, where our helpful team will provide you with an instant quote. Please note that, in some cases, it may be necessary to test an item for its purity. This can be an invasive test which involves filing and applying acid. This process may scratch or blemish the item.


Our valuation may differ from the estimated offer using the online calculator. The price of gold fluctuates daily, and our prices will change to reflect this. The final offer may be higher or lower than the original estimated quote. Once you receive your final quote, the offer is valid for 24 hours.


Once we have received your item, we aim to get you a quote within 24 hours. If you accept our offer, we will then aim to transfer the money into your bank account within 24 hours. In some situations, however, this may take longer. We currently only offer bank transfers for our online Cash for Gold service.
