Since the boom of Gold in 2012 and the rise and fall of cash for gold stores at every street corner, the gold market has settled back down off the all-time highs. Despite this drop, gold prices are still higher than they were any time previously to 2012, so the gold buyer market has remained very strong. While many stores were there and gone, there are several gold buyers who have remained in the business.

After the drop in 2013, gold prices have rebounded up nearly 10% in 2014.

Even though prices are off their highs, cash for gold services continue to be very popular. The remaining online cash for gold firms have gotten very competitive, offering a higher percentage of the spot price of gold than in the past. Still, customers need to be wary. Reports continue to come in of disreputable online companies or local dealers trying to take advantage of customers. aims to aid consumers by educating them on the value of their gold and the process they should go through in order to obtain a fair price for their belongings. Of course, cash for gold shops and refiners need to pay to transform old scrap gold back into marketable jewelry (so people shouldn’t expect the full spot price of gold), but informed consumers can make sure they understand what they are being paid and that the price is fair.

“Our website focuses on delivering three main sets of information for consumers,” explained Clint Hockney, owner of and online gold expert for over 5 years. “First, we help them determine the actual value of their gold. Second, we describe the process they should go through in order to obtain a number of fair quotes for their pieces. Lastly, we review online gold buyers and allow users a place to review buyers so people can find the best place to work with.”

The goal of is to provide independent reviews to users who are looking for a hassle-free way to cash in their unwanted jewelry for the best place.

“We’ll constantly update our blog with new information for gold sellers. We also encourage people who use a cash for gold service to come back to our website and share the experience with other users via our comments sections. Good or bad, people need to know,” continued Hockney.
