Whatever the carat of Gold you have , whether 9 carat, 14 carat, 18 carat 22 carat 24 carat or anywhere in between eg 21 carat and 15 carat, we will buy your gold items.   Remember the higher the gold carat. the more your gold is worth per gram, though, especially with foreign and asian gold the mark is often not a UK hallmark, which means it has been stamped by a jeweller, rather than an independent UK government body, like the Assay office. This often leads to fraud and misrepresentation. For more information on this please read our gold hallmarking page.
