What types of gold and silver items can be donated?
We accept gold jewelry — 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K and 24K — such as broken necklaces, brooches and rings. We also accept sterling silver bowls, cups, flatware, trays and coffee/tea service, but they must be sterling silver. These items are usually marked with the word “sterling” or “.925.”
Are costume jewelry or plated items acceptable?
No, it has to be real gold, platinum or sterling silver. We can’t accept gold-plated or silver-plated items.
Is gold jewelry with stones acceptable?
Yes, but our processor cannot value the donation of stones; they only process precious metals. The stones will be removed by the refiner and disposed of separately. If you believe the stones are valuable, you may wish to have them removed before you donate.
Who is Jewelry for Good?
