I have 2 men’s wedding bands that are 95% platinum. Together they weigh 22.54 grams. Can you tell where I can sell them and how much they are worth? – From Richard in Atlanta, Georgia.
As with any jewelry, you can always try to sell platinum rings for their “jewelry value” through a jeweler, pawnshop, or eBay. Of course the market value you may get for used jewelry is very hard to determine and many people are very skeptical about buying jewelry online.
Determining the value when viewed from refining point-of-view is much more straightforward. We refine platinum jewelry based on the weight of platinum available for extraction and the market price of platinum. Platinum prices are determined by troy ounces, so you will need to convert grams to troy ounces. There are approximately 31.1 grams in 1 troy ounce. So your rings weigh about 0.725 troy ounces. Then we find the market price of platinum, which changes daily.
According to CNN Commodities Prices, platinum is $1,538.70 USD per troy ounce. Based on this, the melt value of your 95% platinum rings is about $1,060. Typically we can return 70% of the fine platinum value based on the weight and market price.
Keep in mind, once again, that refiners like us do not take into account the craftsmanship, quality or brand of jewelry items we refine. If you think any of these items are important to the value of your rings, we would recommend first taking them to a jeweler to have them appraised. If you decide to go this route, try and locate all the paperwork you can about the rings such as the purchase receipts and/or purchase certificates.
The retail value of jewelry is kind of like cars. Once they become “used,” the resale value usually drops considerably. That is why refining outdated or broken jewelry is can be a profitable alternative to pawn shops and resale stores, but it is highly dependent on the marketability of individual items.
I have 6.3 troy ounces of platinum thermocouple wire type R. I was wondering how much I could sell this for?
Hi @Calvin Kinder. 6.3 troy ounces equals 196 grams. This is a good amount of platinum thermocouple. We could pay about 70% of the platinum content that is recovered. Here is some more information about the platinum wire we refine: http://www.precious-metal-refining.info/sell-refine-platinum-wire/ or you can . Request an estimate for further assistance. Thank you!

I have a diamond platinum ring and I want to sell it.kindly reply
Hi Ayushee. Thank you for your comment. The best way for us to give you a value is if you fill out our request form with the weight of your ring. As precious metal buyers we are most interested in the platinum ring band and not the diamond. http://www.archenterprises.com/contact-us.html
The platinum rings are used in every wedding maximumly.
So the metal buyers want to know where to sell the platinum rings?
If I were to buy 1oz Platinum Bars (now) more from a “precious metals” stacking standpoint, and in a two or three years time decide to propose, could I get these Platinum Bars melted down and then tailor-made into a ring design? Would jewellers accept my platinum bars to be used, or would they prefer I purchase and buy ‘their’ platinum pre-shaped ring blanks? (Given I’m obviously willing to pay for the melt and craftmanship, just not willing to pay more Platinum when I already have it sitting around).
