If you have gold jewelry that you have not worn in years, or old collectibles that you have been meaning to get rid of, you might be thinking about the ways in which you can get rid of your clutter while also fattening your wallet.
Earning cash for gold is an alluring idea for many, but it can be hard to predict the value of your old jewelry and bullion pieces. With every Toronto jewelry buyer using different testing methods and offering different prices, it can be hard to know the most accurate and reasonable amount you can earn for your valuables.
At Finest Cash for Gold, we are committed to find you the best price in the GTA for your gold, silver, platinum and diamonds. We monitor international market values throughout the day, which allows us to provide the most accurate prices for your gold at any given moment.
However, one of our key strengths is in our state-of-the-art facility, which offers the most modern and effective testing equipment in the jewelry industry. Through using the GoldXpert XRF Analyzer, we can test your gold on the spot within moments, and help you secure the most cash possible for your gold bullion and jewelry.
How it works
The countertop XRF tester is the leading technology for showroom environments. It offers customers an easy and fast way to learn more about the value of their products.
Test your gold in 15 secs with XRF Gold tester – Get directions
XRF is a completely non-intrusive method of testing, ensuring that there will be no damages or alterations made to your possessions. Our XRF machine is always available in our showroom, and upon request, we can test your gold on the spot. We simply place your gold pieces in the machine’s closed-beam system, and with the single push of a button, this tester will analyze your pieces for karat classification and composition.
Essentially, karatage is amount of pure gold within your piece. Given the high value of gold, having an accurate understanding of your jewelry’s karatage is an important element to finding a fair and accurate price for it.
Why XRF is the best way to test your gold
The XRF counter works within seconds and provides routinely accurate results. It is a completely safe and secure product to use and has innovative technology that can differentiate gold-plated products from traditional gold jewelry.
The machine can also be used to test silver and platinum, making it a great choice for versatile jewelry sellers such as Finest Cash for Gold
XRF testing is widely used within the jewelry industry, and both handheld devices and lab testing is available. One of the benefits of using a portable, countertop system is we can pass along the savings to our customers.
Both lab testing and handheld testing offer incredibly accurate results, but lab testing comes at a much higher cost. By testing in-store, we can test your gold at no charge to you, and then offer a much more competitive price for your gold than would be possible with pricey lab testing.
In-store testing also allows to test your gold fast. With our top of the line XRF tester, you can come in to our store, find the value of your jewelry, and leave with newly earned cash, with no additional waiting or hassle.

Acid Gold testing
Another historically popular option to test gold is an acid test or a scratch test. In an acid/scratch test, some of your gold will be scratched on to a testing stone, where different acids are applied to determine the gold purity.
If the gold scratch easily dissolves under acid, it indicates that the product is not pure gold. Different acid strengths can also be used to predict the gold purity of a product, although not with 100% accuracy.
This option does not offer the same level of accuracy of XRF testing, and although it may just be a little scratch, it requires a level of intrusiveness or destructiveness that XRF testing does not.
Magnet Gold testing
Magnet testing is also a common form of gold testing and can weed out products that are obviously plated items. However, it is only suggested as an option to weed out the most clearly plated items, and it is not suggested as the only test a jewelry buyer uses.
Overall, both more conventional options are not focused on providing accurate results to help jewelry buyers find the best offers to cash for gold services. Instead, they are primarily used to scope out sellers looking to swindle buyers into purchasing plated products that are being presented as pure gold.
XRF testing on the other hand is a one-step test for accurate, easy results, all without risking any damage to your valuables.
