Q: How can I tell if my item is made of gold, silver, or platinum?

That’s where the  expert specialists at Gold My Way are ready to help. They use the most current industry standards and specialized technology to make sure that your item is accurately analyzed and appraised based on its composition and value, and that you get paid as much as possible.

So the best way to find out about your items is to either: a) Choose Ship Now and send us your item(s) right away; or b) Request an Appraisal Kit to have the appraisal process started.

If you want to attempt appraising your item(s) on your own, here are some simple tests you can conduct at home:

Magnet test. Using a strong magnet (found at a local hardware store or online), place the magnet near your item(s). Gold will not react to a magnet, so if your magnet becomes attracted to your item, it may not be real gold. In some cases, one part of the item may be real gold but another part may not be. To be 100% sure, we suggest you ship us your item for a full, professional appraisal.

Check the Hallmark. If any jewelry contains real gold, silver, or platinum, usually there will be a hallmark, or stamp on the item. You may see a “maker’s mark” on the item as well, which will show where it was made. Sometimes a hallmark may reside on the clasp of a necklace, bracelet, on the underside of a ring, or the face of a coin.
Common hallmarks include:

Look for Purity Markings. If you look at the unique features of the stamp, you could decipher the exact makeup of your item(s) as well. Typically, the following symbols are used:

  • Rectangle with side missing: Gold
  • Oval = Silver
  • House shape = Platinum

In addition, the shape will typically contain a number thatdepicts the item’s relative purity. The following markings often depict common types of purity designations:

Gold Hallmarks

9 Carat
14 Carat
18 Carat
22 Carat
24 Carat
Fine Gold

Silver Hallmarks


Platium Hallmarks


Palladium Hallmarks
