If you are searching for a reputable gold buyer, you've come to the right place. Your friends and neighbors have been selling gold, jewelry, diamonds, Rolex, and coins to us since 1988.

 If it is gold, silver, platinum, or palladium - we buy it. It's an easy process. Just bring the items in, one of our buyers will happily examine the pieces with you. We measure and weigh everything to determine its wholesale value, then make you an offer. You can accept the offer, or not, totally up to you. We pay by check from Oak Valley Community Bank, and you are welcome to cash it immediately. 

Selling to Yates is better for you than the Cash For Gold places you ship your valuables off to. You see us in person. No mailing off your valuables, hoping the package arrives, then having your items held hostage until you accept an unsatisfactory offer. It is better for you to deal face to face with a long-time jeweler.

FAQs

  • To give you an accurate pricewe must see the items in person. For gold items, we have to test the metal for the karat content and obviously need the piece in front of us to do that. Also, we need to see the item to determine if we can pay over the gold value.

  • Yes, we pay immediately with a check from Bank of The West. You can drive across the street to the bank and cash it on the spot.

  • There is no cost for us to look at your items and give you our purchase offer. A jewelry appraisal is not needed for us to evaluate your items for purchase. However, if you would like a jewelry appraisal for your insurance we do offer that for a fee.
