WE BUY STERLING SILVER

Budget Buy & Sell will pay top dollar for your sterling silver. We are one of Long Island’s leading buyers of sterling silver flatware and hollow ware. We do not melt your sterling. Each piece is evaluated for both its weight and its artistic value. As soon as our analysis is completed, you will receive an immediate cash offer for your pieces.

Items must be stamped “Sterling” .925 – .900 – .800. Many items stamped Sterling are weighted with plaster (i.e. candlesticks) and must be broken to get the true weight. Knives which have sterling handles are figured at 1/3 – 1/2 oz. each.

Here is a quick summary of our most popular selling and pawn loan categories:

GOLD

GOLD is usually stamped 10K, 14K, 18K. Gold is bought by the pennyweight (dwt). There are 18.2 dwt to the avoir oz. or 20 to the troy oz. Dental gold must be yellow and is usually around 16k. Items stamped 1/20 12k – H.G.E. are gold plated and worth very little.  We test all gold, marked and unmarked.  If there are diamonds or other precious stones in the item brought in, we will add their value to the weight of the gold.

DIAMONDS

Diamonds can be very valuable depending on some characteristics the diamonds may have. The shape, cut, color, clarity, and carat weight all play an important role in the overall value of your diamond. Click here to see which categories fits your diamond.

SILVER

Items must be stamped “Sterling” .925 – .900 – .800. Many items stamped Sterling are weighted with plaster (i.e. candlesticks) and must be broken to get the true weight. Knives which have sterling handles are figured at 1/3 – 1/2 oz. each.

WATCHES

Many common gold watches made in the last 20 to 30 years are probably worth their weight in gold only, but Budget Buy & Sell will examine the watch to determine if it has any value above melt. Hunting case watches (flip Covers) that are working or repairable are valuable. Repeater watches which chime the time are very valuable – often worth over $1,000. Old silver watches are also worth a premium. Particularly valuable watches are Rolex; Cartier; Tiffany; Omega; Patek; Phillipe; Piaget.

If you have something not listed here, bring it to our store in Patchogue, Long Island, New York and let us tell you what the value is for your item.
