Sell your JewelryDo you have items of gold and silver that you need to sell? Do you live in or near Rancho Santa Margarita? Or anywhere in Orange County? Crown Gold Exchange  buys your precious metals, diamonds, jewelry, or specialty designer items. For ten years now, we have worked hard to grow our reputation in Orange County as the area’s number one choice for selling precious metals. The secret of our success is our commitment to treating our customers with respect. 

Why do our customers know us by reputation? It’s not just our friendly attitude. We understand that when you have a precious item to sell, you’re going to look for a vendor who will be honest and upfront with you, and who will pay you what your item is worth. If you feel like you’re being lowballed, you’ll walk away, angry that someone else wasted your time. But the professionals at Crown Gold Exchange know you expect more than that. That’s why we continue to give our customers the respect they deserve. That’s also why they keep coming back to us with more gold and silver items to sell. 

In order to offer you the highest price for your item, we have to be excellent at assessing value. Our professionals are experts at it. We can figure out exactly how much gold is in your gold chain or watch. That confidence enables us to offer you more money for it, because we know what we’re getting in the transaction. 

We have come to understand our customers’ needs when they come to us. When you bring us your valuable item to sell, it is usually for one of four reasons:

  • A family member left you a valuable item in their will, and you have no need of it.
  • You’re short on cash, and need to sell an asset to get by.
  • Someone close to you gave you a valuable item once as a gift, and it no longer has the same meaning to you that it once did.
  • You purchased a valuable item as an investment some time ago, and the time has come to sell it and realize your gain.

No matter the reason, Crown Gold Exchange has one goal in mind: To pay you the most money we can for your item. When you bring us your precious metal item, we make a careful assessment of its value, then make you a no-nonsense offer. Our staff does not get a commission for buying it, so they’re not in a position to haggle on the price, or pressure you into selling. We simply quote you a price, and leave the decision to you.

Our Reliable System for Buying Gold brings Results

One other way we win our customers’ loyalty is through our selling process. When you walk into our store with a valuable item, we want you to know that it is safe. Our friendly buyer will greet you with a smile, and then sit down with you to examine your item. The item never leaves your sight; if we need any special tools to assess your item’s value, we have them on-hand and ready to go. 

To weigh your item, we utilize a scale licensed and certified by the State of California Department of Weights and Measures. By using reliable equipment, we ensure the accuracy of our measurement, and thus can be confident in the item’s value. That confidence enables us to make you a competitive offer, based on the current spot price of gold (or whatever material you bring in). If you agree on the price, then we pay you immediately with whichever one of our secure payment methods you prefer. That means you won’t be waiting around to get paid.

What kinds of Precious Metals do we Buy?


sell your gold at Crown Gold Exchange in Rancho Santa MargaritaGold is the precious metal that we buy the most. We buy gold of any purity, whether 8-karat, 10-karat, 14-karat, 18-karat, 22-karat, 24-karat, or anything else. We purchase gold in all forms, including gold bars, gold bullion, gold jewelry, or even gold plating. (For example, watches or flatware can be coated with gold.) 

Customers will occasionally bring in exotic pieces made by exclusive designers such as Cartier, Tiffany, Rolex, Patek Philippe, or others. Such designer items typically command a higher price on the secondary market because of their superior craftsmanship. That means we are willing to pay you more for them.



Elegant ring made of silver and silver chain and women's watchesCrown Gold Exchange buys silver in any form, so long as it is rated .800 or better for purity. For example, silverware 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 has 92.5% purity) has a stamp reading “.925 sterling”. We buy such common silver items as silverware, silver jewelry, or even silver ornaments or bowls. We also purchase silver coins. Most silver coins are 90% pure; not surprisingly, the industry refers to this kind of silver as “coin silver”. Coin silver may or may not have a .900 mark.

Just as with gold, top name designers will offer a line of premium silver products which command a high price on the secondary market. Judith Ripka and David Yurman are two big names in silver. Certain Mexican designs (e.g. products from the Taxco region) also fetch a high price. Native American artisans like Yazzie, Begay, Bisbee, and others likewise are known for making exquisite silver pieces; they have become famous for their squash blossom necklaces, turquoise jewelry, bear claw bracelets, and more. 

Other Metal or Jewelry

Sell your diamonds at Crown Gold Exchange in Rancho Santa MargaritaIf we believe that your jewelry item can draw interest on the secondary market, there is a strong possibility that we will make you an offer on it. Platinum jewelry, gemstones, or other rare pieces pique our interest. Regarding gemstones, diamonds still rule the market. However, that won’t stop us from buying stones such as alexandrite, ruby, or emerald. If you have jewelry or gemstones and are curious about their worth, come down to our Rancho Santa Margarita location. We will be happy to assess their value, and perhaps make you an offer. 

Other Collectables

Gems and jewelry are not the only items with secondary market value. We have acquired any number of odd collectibles over the years, and will continue to purchase rare items, so long as we can determine their value and find a place to sell them. We only buy items in good condition, provided we can authenticate them. Designer handbags (e.g. made by Hermes, Louis Vuitton, or Chanel) are valuable collector’s items, as are rare baseball cards or other novelties. If you own a rare collectable and are open to selling it, bring it to our Rancho Santa Margarita location. 

Make an Appointment; It Saves you Time

At Crown Gold Exchange, we value your experience as our customer. We are happy to sit with anyone who walks in off the street. However, we strongly recommend that you call ahead and make an appointment. This ensures that one of our buyers will be available when you arrive. We make this request hoping to provide you with the best possible experience. Our new customers benefit from this practice the most, as do those who are unsure whether they want to sell their item. Some customers need more time because they have more questions. That’s why we want to offer you our full attention, with no distractions. Remember, our goal is to help you get the most money for your item. You can make an appointment online here.

This was my first experience doing any kind of selling of gold or silver. I was so nervous when I walked in because all I had were a few odds and ends from my jewelry box. I was so very welcomed by Nathan. He walked me through everything and I ended up with over twice what I thought I could get for what little I brought in. I will go see Nathan again the second I have something else I am willing to part with.
