Safely Sell Your Jewelry During the Covid-19 Pandemic

We have rebuilt our office space in order to minimize contact during the coronavirus pandemic.  Our lobby is now completely sealed off from the rest of the office space, and you are now separated from David by a solid glass wall so you can watch your jewelry during the entire evaluation process; your jewelry never leaves your sight.  You communicate with David through a hands-free "no touch" electronic speak-through device.  All jewelry evaluations are conducted by appointment so that you are the only client in the office during the evaluation, and all appointments are timed so that 20 minutes before you arrive there is no other client in the lobby before you.  After each client, counter surfaces are cleaned and the office front door is left open to facilitate fresh air circulation into the office clearing out airborne viral particles from the lobby.  In addition, the the office is now equipped with a virus rated HEPA filter that scrubs the entire airspace every 10 minutes.

Want to Sell Your Gold?

David now has the Thermo Scientific Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester, which gives the exact gold content of your jewelry without damaging it. Nearly every gold buyer uses the inexpensive $50 “scratch acid test”, meaning they damage your jewelry by scraping it or filing it down to test it with acid, which gives only a rough approximation of the gold content. The $16,750 Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester provides a digital readout of the exact gold content of your jewelry in seconds without even touching it, and you get to see the results for yourself while watching your jewelry the whole time through the window on the device. The Thermo Scientific Niton DXL Advanced XRF Gold Tester is the most accurate gold testing device available.
