Dental Gold

Reasons to sell your Dental Scrap to PPM

  • We pay you for both gold AND palladium. Total payouts usually exceed a 100% payout on the price of the gold alone.
  • We are local.
  • We can x-ray your dental gold and pay you on the spot right in your office or we can have it refined off site – it’s YOUR CHOICE.
  • Offsite refining should yield a more accurate assay given the variation in each piece of dental gold and turnaround time is 1-3 days.
  • We can pay you in cash, check, bank wire, or bullion.
  • Pacific Precious Metals wants to be your local gold and palladium dental scrap refiner of choice. Most suppliers require that you send them your dental gold in the mail. We can pay you right in your office when we visit or pick it up directly from your office. We want our relationship to be long-term so we provide a transparent process for you to sell gold crowns, bridges, caps, etc. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area and have not already had a visit from one of our representatives, please feel free to call us.

Jewelry & Flatware

Jewelry & Flatware

We Buy Gold, Silver or Platinum Jewelry, Silverware and Diamonds. Many people are unsure of how to sell their unwanted jewelry and/or silverware. They would rather not sell it if it meant having to go to a grungy pawn shop with unsavory proprietors. At Pacific Precious Metals, we provide an upscale, transparent, fair, and discreet environment for individuals, or estates, to liquidate unwanted precious metals. We test items using x-ray fluorescence analysis that will show all the metals in your items and the exact percentage of each. We have two offices to serve you: In the heart of Silicon Valley in Cupertino and just north of San Francisco in Sausalito. No appointment is needed.

Individuals

Pacific Precious Metals buys all types of unwanted gold jewelry, silver jewelry, platinum jewelry, placer gold, silver flatware, holloware, tea sets, etc. The condition, brand, or design is not important as we simply buy it for its precious metal content. As such, our process to determine the value is based upon purity, weight and the spot price of gold silver or platinum. We use x-ray fluorescence technology to determine the percentage and type of metals in each and every piece. The test results tell us the precious metal purity of your items. We weigh the items in front of you, on government certified scales and we use the spot price of gold, silver, or platinum at that very moment to determine the value of your items. The process is fast and transparent. We explain everything we are doing each step of the way. A few items will only take 5-10 minutes from start to finish. And we encourage you to ask any questions you may have – we are happy to explain the details.

Estates

We assist probate attorneys, estate lawyers, and estate executors with the valuation and/or liquidation of items containing precious metals.

Many estates find it easier to liquidate jewelry or silverware rather than trying to divide it up among the beneficiaries. Nevertheless, we often perform estate valuations for jewelry, coins, silverware or other items. Our turn around time will depend up on the number of items and the type of service needed, but usually can be done in 1-3 days. We use x-ray fluorescence technology to determine the percentage and type of metals in each and every piece. The test results tell us the precious metal purity of your items.
