What do you do with the jewelry I sell to C.D. Clark & Co. Gold Buyers?

At C.D. Clark & Co. Gold Buyers, we buy your silver, gold, and platinum with the sole purpose of refining it. Refining is basically a technical term for recycling!

I’ve seen ads on TV about mailing in your gold.  How is C.D. Clark & Co. Gold Buyers different from mail-in gold buyers?

At C.D. Clark & Co. Gold Buyers, all of our transactions are conducted in our stores, right in front of you.  You’re gold and precious items will never leave your sight and will be tested and weighed by our specialists.  Once tested, we immediately make you an offer and if accepted by you, pay you on the spot.  Mailing in your gold and precious items can take several days and sometimes weeks before you receive an offer.  Also, the chances of losing your jewelry in the mail are very high, so it’s not the safest or most secure avenue to pursue.
