We buy platinum and platinum jewelry in all conditions whether it’s new, old, broken, damaged, vintage or antique. It can be in the form of jewelry, coins, or even industrial platinum wire. As long as it’s platinum, we can buy it.
Most platinum jewelry is hallmarked .900 or .950 with PLAT or pt next to it. This means it’s either 90% or 95% platinum. Sometimes you’ll see a stamp with 90% plat 10% irid which means the item also has 10% iridium.
Are you the kind of person who favors platinum jewelry instead of gold? Platinum is a very rare and precious metal with considerable appeal to jewelry buyers and other aficionados.

Crown Gold Exchange has nine locations all across the Southland and have served its communities for over ten years. During that time, we have established a sterling reputation as a buyer of precious metals of all kinds, including platinum. We have formed positive relationships with many individuals who continue to bring us their platinum because they trust that we will provide for them the value that they deserve. We don’t harass or haggle those with precious metals to sell; we simply make a cash offer based on the current spot price. If that deal works for you, we pay at that moment.
Platinum is not simply used for jewelry and other valuables; it has applications in manufacturing as well. Platinum is more difficult to work with than gold because its melting point is over 1,000 degrees hotter than gold. (Gold’s melting point is 1,948℉, platinum’s melting point is 3,215℉.) However, the higher melting point can be an advantage in certain applications. For example, over 50% of platinum in the world is used in the catalytic converters of automobiles to mitigate carbon emissions. Although platinum is a very rare metal, its price has been suppressed to a degree by the increasing demand for electric vehicles.
Here at Crown Gold Exchange, we utilize a simple system that protects our clients and makes them feel comfortable whenever they bring us their valuables to sell. When you arrive, one of our buyers greets you and sits with you at a desk, where we examine and test your item(s) right in front of you. We check for purity, weight, and other measurables to assess exactly how much platinum you have. Our scales are calibrated by the State of California’s Department of Weights and Measures, and if we should need to use other special tools to inspect your item(s), we have those tools on hand. We never take your item out of your sight.
After determining the amount of platinum you have, we look up the spot price of platinum at that very moment, and make you an offer based on that price. If you agree to the deal, we pay you immediately using one of our many secure payment methods, so you won’t be waiting around. We never haggle with or pressure our customers into selling; our reputation is too important for us to do that. We want you to enjoy the selling process, so that you will trust us again in the future.
At Crown Gold Exchange, our customers bring us all kinds of platinum items to sell. Fortunately, most platinum items are made from a high grade of platinum. That means that if you bring us a platinum item, there is an excellent chance that we will make an offer on it!
Platinum jewelry often has markings on it to identify its content and purity. Platinum items are often marked with a “Pt” (the chemical symbol for platinum), and a purity rating such as 900 (for 90% purity) or 950 (for 95% purity). The remaining metal in your jewelry may be iridium, rhodium, palladium or copper. Wedding rings are often made out of platinum.
Certain boutique manufacturers have created a market for small items made out of platinum. Pens, mechanical pencils, cigarette lighters and other smoking accessories, money clips, combs and brushes, penknife cases, and even golf accessories can be made from platinum. Remember, to the untrained eye, platinum can often be mistaken for silver. However, it is often about 50 times more valuable per ounce.
