How the gold buying process works

If you are thinking of selling your scrap gold or silver bullion in Ipswich, at Andrews we endeavour to make the process as painless as possible. We will happily buy from those looking to sell jewellery no longer worn as well as those looking to cash in on inheritance from loved ones. Our experts will then weigh your precious metals, (if gold) verify the carat, determine how much fine gold your jewellery contains and test all items that aren’t hallmarked. We keep a close eye on global precious metal prices to ensure we provide the fairest price when buying your gold jewellery

In order to complete the sale of your jewellery at Andrews, please ensure you bring formal proof of identification and address, the latter of which must be dated within the last three months.
