Our reputation is no accident. Customers continue to bring us their gold, silver, platinum, and other jewelry, and they bring their friends to us as well. They do this out of loyalty to our staff. Why? Because we always treat our customers with respect.

A key element in winning the respect of our customers is the accurate valuation of their items. Our expert employees understand exactly how to value your gold or silver item. This ensures that we are getting proper value for our purchase. That enables us to offer you more money for it. 

When people come to us with gold or silver to sell, they usually visit us for one of four reasons:

  • They have a valuable item that was a gift from someone special, but it no longer has the value that it once had. 
  • They inherited a piece of jewelry from a loved one who passed away, but have no need of it.
  • They’ve found themselves in financial difficulty, and need to sell an asset to get through it. 
  • They’ve purchased gold or silver as an investment (e.g. bars, bullion), and the time has come to sell it. 

Whatever reason you may have, the professionals at Crown Gold Exchange have the same goal: Getting you the best value for your item. You bring us an item, and we inspect it. Then we make you a no-nonsense offer. Our employers make no commissions on their purchases. So we have no need to twist your arm or haggle over the price. We give you our quote and leave the decision to you.

Our process gets our customers results

At our Carlsbad office, our method for protecting your items during the selling process is as simple as it gets. When you bring your item to us, one of our friendly buyers greets you with a smile. The buyer then sits down with you and inspects your item right in front of you. The item never leaves your sight. If we have need of a special tool for evaluating your item, we have such equipment on-hand and ready to go.

To weigh your item, we put it on a scale licensed and certified by the State of California Department of Weights and Measures. By using industry-standard tools, we can get an accurate measurement of your jewelry item, which then enables us to be more confident about its price. This in turn enables us to offer you the most money possible. After checking the spot price of gold, we make you an offer based on the amount of gold we have identified in your item. Once you agree on the price, we pay you immediately using one of our secure payment methods, so you won’t have to wait around.

What kinds of Precious Metals do we Buy?

When you’re ready to sell your gold in or near Carlsbad, come to Crown Gold Exchange. We always buy gold, no matter the form or purity. We buy 8-karat, 10-karat, 14-karat, 18-karat, 22-karat, 24-karat, or anything else. We often make purchases of gold bars, gold bullion, gold jewelry, and even gold plating (e.g. watches or flatware). Customers will occasionally bring in designer pieces made by such exclusive names as Cartier, Tiffany, Rolex, Patek Philippe and more. Given their superior craftsmanship, these items often command a higher price, and thus we pay more for them.

At Crown Gold Exchange, we will purchase silver in any form, so long as it has a purity grade of .800 or higher. Silverware, for example, can carry a hallmark of .800 or .830 (indicating a purity of 80% or 83%, respectively). Pure silver is marked .999 fine, while sterling silver (which is 92.5% pure) has a stamp reading “.925 sterling”. We will accept silverware, silver jewelry, or even silver ornaments or bowls. We also accept silver coins. Silver coins are generally 90% pure; such silver is referred to as “coin silver”. Coin silver may or may not have a .900 mark.

Just as with gold, there are a number of famous designers that offer a line of quality silver products that command a high price on the secondary market. Judith Ripka and David Yurman are such designers. We also pay a higher price for certain Mexican designs, such as those from the Taxco region, or for the work of Native American artisans such as Yazzie, Begay, Bisbee, and others. Some of their designs include squash blossom necklaces, turquoise jewelry, bear claw bracelets, and more.

If you have any jewelry with significant secondary market value, Crown Gold Exchange will probably offer you money for it. Our customers are known to bring in diamonds, platinum, rare or numismatic coins, or precious metals in bar or bullion form. Diamonds are the preferred gemstone in the secondary market. However, our buyers do still have love for alexandrite, ruby, or emerald. Bring your gemstones into our Carlsbad location, and we will be happy to value them there.


There are plenty of other items with secondary market value besides diamonds and precious metals. As long as your item is in good condition, we will make you an offer, provided we can assess its value and find a market for it. Designer handbags (made by Hermes, Louis Vuitton, or Chanel) are an example of a valuable collector’s item, as are rare baseball cards, or other novelties. If you own a valuable item and are looking to sell, bring it by our Carlsbad location. We can also help you determine its value, if you are unsure.
