Frequently Asked Questions

See below for answers to some of the common questions we receive. If your question isn't listed, feel free to contact us for more information.

If you feel that our standard £750 of inclusive mail insurance is not enough, you can order more than one pack and split your items between the two packs. Alternatively, you can ask the post office to increase the insurance of the items - if doing so, we will refund any additional postage on acceptance of an offer from us. All postage refunds require a receipt to be emailed to orders@biggold.co.uk before an offer is made.

The amount you get paid will be based on the amount of items you send to us and the current market value of precious metals at the time of valuation. The global value of gold, silver and platinum change frequently throughout the day and our prices are based on a percentage of this value.

We don't display the prices we pay on our website because the price we are paying today will likely not reflect the price available at the time of valuation. We are more than nhappy to discuss our prices and provide an estimate before sending your items - you can use our website chat app, telephone or email to contact us.

The prices we pay are based on the weight of precious metals contained in your pack. You should be aware that gold and platinum fetch the best prices, whereas silver is typically a fraction of the value.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer cash for any gemstones sent to us. The main reason for this is gemstones contained in the majority of high street jewellery are incredibly difficult to sell onwards. If you feel any of your items have a particularly high value due to gemstones, we recommend seeking a valuation from a professional gemstone dealer.

Unfortunately we cannot pay cash for any items made from plated precious metals.

We will happily pay for all items made from white gold or rose gold.

While we will happily pay for any item made from precious metals, we do not pay extra for branded items. Our prices are based on the precious metal content only. The value of high-end jewellery is normally based on the brand name and design. The value of precious metals contained in the item will normally be worth a fraction of the original retail price of the item.

We will pay cash for gold watches, however be aware that while many watches have a gold colouring, they are not made from gold itself. If the case of the watch does not have a gold backing, it is likely not made from gold.

Once we receive your items, we aim to provide your valuation on the same day. We will provide you with the weight of precious metals and the price we are willing to pay. For valuations provided in the morning, you will have until midnight of the same day to accept our offer. For valuations sent during the afternoon, you will have until 1PM to accept our valuation. Unfortunately because the value of precious metals changes frequently, we cannot keep our offers open for a longer period.

If you are happy with our offer, we will process your payment within 24 hours (mon-fri) of accepting the offer. If you don't accept our offer, we mail your items back completely free of charge.

While we have no control over the market value of precious metals, we do operate a tiered pricing scheme. We increase our prices when receiving greater than 5g of gold or platinum and over 20g for silver.

Yes, our valuations service is free of charge for all genuine customers. We do have a very small number of exceptions within our terms and conditions where you may be charged for returns, mainly covering instances where we receive large volumes of items that do not contain precious metals, including costume jewellery, plated items or items that imitate the appearance of precious metals. Please be sure to read our terms and conditions before ordering.

If you would like further advice before ordering or sending your items, please feel free to contact us for more information.
