When we assess your gold, we will base the cash value according to the following factors:
When it comes to selling your unwanted gold and precious metals, you need to ensure that you use a reputable buyer who offers the best and fairest price. At Martin Gear Jewellers you can always be assured that we will offer the best price possible for your gold, dental scrap, and precious metals – no matter the amount you have or the condition it is in.
We are one of Ireland’s longest established cash for gold jewellers which have become nationally recognised and trusted for the fair deal we give to anyone looking at cashing in on their unwanted gold. Unlike some fly-by-night gold businesses, we operate on a basis of transparency and honesty. Your gold never leaves your eyes and we check ID’s for every transaction as well as record them both on paper and CCTV. We are fully registered, insured, and tax compliant.
One of the Irish Times reporters (Conor Pope) went undercover to try and sell his wedding band and discovered that we were the best place in Dublin that offers cash for gold. Here is what he had to say:
"One place might be Martin Gear’s jewellers on Dublin’s Dorset Street. He opened seven years ago and the 'We Buy Gold' sign is nearly as big as the name over the door. He offers me €90 for my wedding ring if I am simply scrapping it but says he’ll give me €130 if I trade it in for a new piece.
He says that while the gold buying business is good, there is a misconception that the recession has seen desperate people beat a path to his door. 'We have seen an upsurge in recent months and I think that is thanks to the television ads more than the recession. People have suddenly realised how much money they might be sitting on. We might get around 15 people in a week. Mostly they are just having a clear out or a spring clean – there are loads of places that take CDs or books so why not gold?'
When I express dismay at the offer of €90 for my ring, he points out that I paid a premium because the ring was unusual and highlights VAT at 21 per cent and the jeweller’s mark up.
Some of the big stores would work on a 300 per cent mark up but they have to because they might be paying €10,000 a week in rent as well as up to a million in key money.”
