Unique Cash for Gold Services

Not only do we pay instant cash for gold, we also offer other unique services. Customers can take advantage of our trade-in service whereby we will give you as much as 25% extra when you use your unwanted gold as a store trade-in; this works particularly well for couples who use their scrap gold to buy wedding and engagement rings.
Instead of selling your gold, our other unique service gives you the opportunity to remodel it. This is especially useful for those of you who do not want to sell your sentimental gold, but rather get it remodelled into something that you will wear with pride.

Frequently Asked Questions When Selling Gold and Precious Metals

Martin Gear Jewellers buys all types of gold no matter how many karats it is or where the gold is from. Condition is not a factor and we will buy your gold regardless of whether it is a broken piece of jewellery, a scratched ring, or only one earring. Gold is gold no matter what condition it is in and the importance lies only in its purity and weight.

What exactly is “Cash for Gold”?

Cash for gold is a reliable service that we offer to anyone and everyone over 18 who want to sell their unwanted gold. We pay instant cash based on the weight and purity of your gold. Not only gold, but we also buy rose gold, white gold, and other precious metals such as platinum and palladium.

How long does it take to sell your gold?

Selling your gold only takes a few moments. Come into our store on 5 Mary Street, Dublin City Centre, where we will weight it and make you an offer.

How long does it take to get paid for gold?

Getting paid for your gold is instant. We will make you an offer and once you are happy with it, and accept it, we will pay you instantly.

How will you be paid?

We will pay you in cash. Simply bring in your unwanted gold and walk out of our store with cash in your back pocket.

Do you need a ID to sell gold?

Yes, ID is required before we will buy any gold off you. You will need to bring in an official form of ID such as a driver’s licence, passport, or age card.

How old do you have to be to sell gold?

Our cash for gold service only applies to persons that are 18 years or older.

How is the value of your gold calculated?

When we assess your gold, we will base the cash value according to the following factors:

  • Weight: the weight of your unused gold will be used in our calculation. We buy gold on a per gram basis, so the more gold you have the more cash you can walk away with.
  • Purity: each karat of gold holds a different percentage of pure gold. Pure gold, at 100% purity, is known as 24 karat gold – the less karats of gold, the less pure it is.

Do you have to weigh your gold before coming to our store?

No, we will weigh your gold right in front of your eyes using our specialised jewellery scale.

Do we remove gemstones?

Yes. We will happily remove your gemstones at no extra cost. In this way you get to keep your valuable gemstones and get cash for only the gold portion of your jewellery.

How much gold can we buy?

There is no limit on the amount of gold we can buy off you. However, large quantities will be by appointment only. Contact us should you wish to sell large amounts of gold.

Why Should You Sell Your Gold to Martin Gear Jewellers?

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.”
