- Sort your valuable jewellery from any scrap gold. Look carefully for gold purity markings such as 9k or 18k (meaning 9 or 18 carat gold). They can usually be found stamped on the inside of a ring, on the back of a necklace or inside a bracelet.
- Also look for any marker by the original designer. For example, Tiffany & Co., Cartier, or Bulgari. Decide which jewellery is valuable as is, or better used as scrap gold.
- Put your gold scrap into different piles based on their carat (e.g. put all the gold marked with 18k together). Use a digital scale to weigh your jewellery and record the grams. To convert to ounces, divide by 31.1
- 18 carat gold contains 75% pure gold. Multiply the weight of your gold by 0.75 to determine how much gold you actually have to sell as scrap. 9 carat contains 37.5% gold by weight.
