About us / Contact us (Click for Contact Form)
We've always bought gold silver and platinum. The Birmingham Gold company started life in 2007 as the Manchester Gold Company and we soon established ourselves in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter in 2010 as one of the busiest gold and silver scrap buyers and also buyers of fine jewelery, watches and diamonds, in the UK. Today besides being buyers of all types of gold and silver jewellery whether antique, vintage or modern we also process industrial scrap precious metals from a variety of UK trade concerns.and remain one of the UKs foremost precious metals dealers, processors and recyclers .
We have always striven to pay the maximum price for our customers gold and silver as possible and we estimate that with some £27 million spent over 10 years we make less than 5% and yet we are still one of the very busiest so we must be doing something right. We remain a family run business with a reputation for customer service honesty and fairness .
Where Do We Sell Our Gold & Silver ?
We recycle all gold and silver either by
1/ Melting items bought into gold and silver bars and selling them on to European precious metal refiners for final end-processing.
2/ Recycling Items by melting and casting them into grain for re-use by the jewellery trade
3/ Repairing and refurbishing scrap jewellery, for resale
Our Gold Buyer Prices
We have been told many times by our customers that we offer far more than local jewellers and cash for vintage companies, many of whom do not show transparent gold and silver prices, and actually make offers far below scrap. That way if they cannot sell on your gold and silver as items they can scrap them with companies like ours. Also, if you have seen a higher price than ours then be careful. As with all usinesses there are some that resort to unscrupulous practices to make their profit margin. if it seems to be too good to be true, it probably is.
Q. So what is the point in travelling hundreds of miles to sell gold, scrap gold and silver to us in Birmingham? A. Simply, when you sell gold, silver & platinum to us, you cut out the middleman ie your local jeweller / gold buyer / cash for vintage buyer who buys it from you & then sells it to gold companies like us. In the process they often earn up to £4 a gram by just passing it on. If you have 100 grams or more of 9 carat then you have lost up to £400 by simply not coming to see us! It could be double that for 18 carat. Deal direct with one of the most popular gold buyers in the UK & If you don't want to travel then post it to us using our secure postal service. Customers sell gold to us from afar as Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds, & London We consistently pay amongst highest & best true gold and precious metals prices to the Trade & Public in the UK. Paying on average 25% more than jewellers we've paid out more than £26 million to over 55000 customers. . We specialise not only in buying hallmarked gold but also unhallmarked items, asian gold and of course industrial items whether Gold, Platinum, Palladium or Silver.. We don't hide our scrap gold buyer prices, neither do we spam false sell gold reviews all over the Internet or use dubious gold price comparison websites . Best place to sell gold? Best gold prices?

Birmingham is well served by major motorways, with the Jewellery Quarter itself well-signposted from the city centre.
From the South, the city is accessible by the M5 (from Devon, Somerset and the South West), the M40 (from London) and the M1 (from London via the M6 through Coventry).

Many bus services are operated by National Express West Midlands, so you can visit their website to find out more about the bus tickets that are available and to search for up-to-date local bus timetables.
Jewellery Quarter Train Station
The Jewellery Quarter is served by its own train station (JEQ), located near the heart of the Quarter on Vyse Street and we are more or less opposite it.
It is a regular stop on all train journeys on the Birmingham to Worcester Line, which is operated by London Midland between Worcester and Stourbridge (to the West) and Solihull, Dorridge and Stratford-upon-Avon (to the East).
