Question/Answer: I am not sure about the weight but I am trying to save up money to buy a car so I would like to know how much I could get for this ring?? From Rob from Manchester, CT

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your question. Gold rings can range in their weight and purity/karat value. The rings that we see are normally about 0.5 to 1 ounces in weight. Since you mention that you have a gold fraternity ring, your ring may be on the heavier side, as men’s fraternity rings tend to be larger in size.

With the price of gold at *$1,642.60 USD/troy ounce right now, you may expect to received $400 – $880.00 for a 14 k gold ring weighting 0.5 to 1 ounces, however this will depend on the weight of gold and the purity of your gold ring.


Also keep in mind that many times class rings contain a gem. As precious metal refiners, we do not pay returns on gems or precious stones. Make sure that you remove any gems, diamonds or stones and do not include them in your precious metal weight.

Our payout schedule on gold depends on the purity and amount that you have. We could pay 80% of the gold value back to you if you have between 0.5 – 1ounce of fine gold.
