Buy Sell Gold – Gold Keeps on Rising! Hits Record Peak.

Buy Sell Gold

Buy Sell Gold

Raymond Lee Jewelers will be keeping you up to date on the current buy sell gold and the gold market in general, which as I type this is still rising. This Thursday (September 16th) gold prices hit $1,273 per-ounce and according to some analysts it may rise or even top $1,300 an ounce. The most-actively traded gold contract, for December delivery, rose $3.70, or 0.3%, to settle at a record $1,277.50 a troy ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

This rise in prices of gold can be attributed to the slow U.S. job growth and other less than satisfactory economic indicators. As the economy slowly recovers from the global recession the U.S. government is hoping to speed things up with a new round of stimulating asset purchases. These purchases in turn worry investors who feel that the dollar may be weakened by these actions and turn to gold as an inflation hedge.

Europe has played a part in the rise of gold as well as the euro has fallen on reports that some countries may need drastic loans, such as Ireland. Due to the fact that gold is not linked to economic cycles as closely as copper or oil, it is thought to be a safer asset.

Raymond Lee Jewelers hopes you will choose us when you decide to sell your gold. We offer the highest prices paid for your gold. The surrounding community has entrusted us with their gold since 1983. If you are located in the South Florida area and have gold to sell, feel free to stop into our Boca Raton location or make an appointment with one of our buyers at our Boynton location to sell gold. We will carefully evaluate your gold items, make you an offer and we will pay you on the spot. If you do not wish to gold sell, there is no further obligation.

Damiani Wedding Ring

Click Here to Bid

Here at Raymond Lee Jewelers we have all sorts of jewelry and watches.  Today we came across someone selling a really good Damiani wedding ring.  At first glance it just looks like a normal 18kt yellow gold wedding band.  When you look closer you can see there are five small diamonds on the sides of the ring totaling ten small diamonds.  When you look even closer you can see the ring was designed by Brad Pitt for Damiani which makes it even more valuable.

We bought the ring with the original Damiani bag, box, and purchase receipt which has the original retail.  It was bought from the Damiani boutique in New York.  The original retail was $2,850 and we are selling it for less than $2,200!  It’s a great chance to own one of the coolest designed rings by arguably the best actor in Hollywood today, Brad Pitt.  Just click the attached image and bid on Ebay for it.  You can even send us an offer.

Gold Refining Process- Buy Gold

Buy Gold

Buy Gold

With the sky rocketing price of precious metals many people are selling their gold to earn some extra cash this summer. Reputable jewelers, like Raymond Lee Jewelers, offer top dollar for gold coins, gold jewelery gold watches or other gold items, buy gold. f this gold is not suitable for resale we send it to a quality refinery which turns this gold into its purest form.

Refining gold literally deals with returning gold to its pure state by removing  impurities, this is important because reputable jewelers only use the purest form of gold. There are a couple of different methods commonly used to refine gold, the amount of gold to be refined will determine the type of method that will be used.

The most common method of refining gold is cupellation. In cupellation lead is added to the unrefined gold creating a mixture that is then heated until the gold dissolves. Once the gold dissolves into the lead the base metals are oxidized (chemically combined) to form lead oxide and the gold bullion remains. Due to the toxic fumes that comes from lead oxide, this  refining process is only suitable for small amounts of gold.

The second most common method of gold refining is called inquartation and parting. Refineries will melt gold and add to it either  silver or copper alloys. This mixture will only contain about 25% or less of pure gold. Then nitric acid and hydrochloric acids are added to the gold and alloy mixture. The addition of these acids will flush out the alloys and leave a sludge like gold residue. The sludge is then washed, filtered and dried for use. This process is capable of producing a gold purity of 99.99% and is best suited for use with lower carat gold.

We here at Raymond Lee Jewelers take pride in our knowledge of the jewelery industry. With this knowledge we are able to provide you with the highest quality of service and pay the highest rate for your gold.

The Clous bracelet is one of Louis Vuittons signatures items from the Emprise collection. This collection was introduced in 2004 and was Louis Vuittons first foray into the jewelry market. Consisting mainly of gold and diamonds, Louis Vuitton strived to combine innovation, luxury and sensuality to create pieces that would resonate with consumers. Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuittons head designer, faced the daunting challenge of creating a new product line that was both modern and true to more than 150 years of design tradition.

The Clous bracelet is beautifully made; radiating a simple elegance. You can find this bracelet in yellow, white and even rose gold. Each bracelet is crafted with a small clasp on the outer circumference that can be opened for easy removal of the bracelet.

Jewelry Terminology: Topaz



In jewelry terminology, the word Topaz is derived from the Greek work Τοpáziοs, the ancient name for the Saint John’s Island which was notoriously difficult for ancient Romans to find. Topazios was also the name of a stone mined from this island,which in modern times is now called Peridot.

Topaz in its pure form is colorless, it is only through impurities that its color changes. Typically topaz ranges from pale green, blue, gold, reddish-yellow and has opaque to transparent qualities. Yellow topaz naturally heated over time causes the color to change to pink, one of the rarest forms of topaz.  Orange topaz is the most familiar form of topaz, which is the traditional November birthstone. Topaz is also the anniversary gemstone of the 4th and 19th year of marriage.

Topaz tends to be set in rings and necklaces but looks great in most pieces of jewelry. The most sought after colors are red and intense pink which are also the rarest forms of topaz. Pure colorless Topaz with a brilliant-cut  is often confused for a diamond. Topaz has always been a fairly popular gemstone due to its modest price and can be found in many collections.

If you are interested in jewelry care or jewelry repair, here’s a tip. If you own a topaz it is best to keep it separated from your other gemstones or wrap it in a cloth, due to its hardness it can scratch softer gems . To keep your gemstone in perfect condition make sure you wash it with warm soapy water and not expose it to constant sunlight which can drain the color. Another fact to keep in mind is that topaz, like diamond, has perfect basal cleavage; one sharp blow from the right direction will split it perfectly along its cleavage line.

World’s Largest Coin Sells For $4 Million in Austria

What weighs 220-pounds, is made from the purest 999.99/1000 gold, and sells for $4 million? The world’s largest coin.

The coin bears a large image of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, while the other side has three maple leaves. Originally on loan to the “Munzkabinett” of the Kunthistorisches Museum in Vienna, which houses one of the world’s largest coin collections.

Aside from the coin’s enormous size, what was responsible for such a high sales value? The rocketing price of gold  ($1162 / oz as of 7/28/10). The face value of this coin is worth “only” $960,000, but gold’s market value has increased the worth of this coin to up to $4 million. The patron responsible for paying this hefty value was Oro Direct, a Spanish precious metal trading company.

How to Tell If Your Gold Jewelry is Real

shop for gold

Image via Wikipedia

Nowadays with so many counterfeiters, you can never be sure if your gold jewelry is real. However, there are several methods or “checks” you can perform to verify that your gold is real. Please remember: The BEST method to check to see if your gold is real is to take it to a local, certified jeweler.

Check the Stamp

Take a close look at the stamp, preferably using a loop or magnifying piece. The stamp shows the grade info (given in finesse or carat). A ring, for example, may be stamped 750 on its inside to indicate that it’s 75% pure gold, or 18kt. Anything under 10kt isn’t considered real gold. This isn’t always the best way since some counterfeit pieces also have similar stamps, but it’s a good way to start.

Make sure to also check if any of the gold is wearing off around the edges from wear and tear. If it is, then your jewelry is gold plated, and not actual gold.

Use a Magnet

Real gold is not magnetic, but many metals inside a non-authentic piece are. If your gold jewelry piece sticks to a magnet, then it’s not real.

Nitric Acid

First off, remember to be safe when dealing with this method. Always take precautions when you are handling any type of acid. To test your gold jewelry using nitric acid, you may have to take a file and make a scratch in your jewelry (preferable somewhere where it’s not noticeable). Take a drop of nitric acid and see if it causes a reaction. If you see a green reaction, then you are dealing with a gold plated piece. If the reaction turns milky white, you’re dealing with a gold plated piece over sterling silver. If there is no reaction, then you have real gold. This method is commonly used in jewelry stores.

Unglazed Ceramic Plate

First off, you may not want to use this method because it will scratch your jewelry, but if you’re really eager to determine if your jewelry is real gold, then you may proceed. Take your jewelry and drag it across a piece of unglazed ceramic. If your jewelry is composed of real gold, it will leave a gold streak. If it isn’t, it’ll leave a black streak.

Gold Tester

If you’re willing to invest some money in a gold tester, it is one of the surest ways to tell if your gold is real or not. However, these gold testers usually come with a hefty price tag. They can be commonly found in jewelry stores.
