How to Buy Gold Nuggets
If you do not have a lot of experience in buying natural gold nuggets then you should find the following information helpful. Be careful though. Once you hold a substantial sized gold nugget in your hand, you are highly susceptible to catching "gold fever". The symptoms of gold fever are obvious, you gotta get more gold.
In this article I will address the issue of how to safely buy gold nuggets and get a fair deal. If you would like additional information on the various types of gold nuggets available, just click on the previous highlighted words and you will find another article about that.
First of all, make sure that you understand the weight measurements used to weigh gold. Natural gold nuggets are generally sold by weight. I say generally because special shaped gold nuggets and rare gold nuggets will command such a high premium over spot gold prices that the weight is not relevant to the pricing. Unless you are buying these very rare gold nuggets which are so unique that the weight is irrelevant, you should never buy a nugget that does not clearly list the weight in grains or grams.
Gold nuggets are measured using the troy and metric systems. The following weights are most relevant. "Penny weight" is sometimes also used, but this can be confusing so there is really no reason to use it.
- 1 Troy Ounce = 31.1 Grams
- 1 Gram = 15.4 Grains
- 1 Troy Ounce = 480 Grains
- 1 Troy Pound = 12 Troy Ounces
Like anything else, gold nuggets come in different qualities. Many natural gold nuggets are simply small rounded chunks of gold without any real unique shape or character. This type is not worth much more than it's melt value, and you would expect to pay close to spot gold prices for this type of nugget. If you are buying gold simply for it's melt value there are a lot of sellers who sell melt quality nuggets, but you will miss the collectible and investment value that high quality gold nuggets afford.
Next you have "jewelry and investment grade gold nuggets", both small and large, which generally command a much higher premium over spot gold prices. Jewelry and investment grade nuggets have been hand selected and are pleasantly shaped and clean and brite without mineral staining. Jewelers use small gold nuggets for inlaying onto rings, necklaces, watch bands, etc, and they use larger gold nuggets to make pendants or necklaces by soldering a gold bezel onto the nugget and hanging it on a gold chain. Jewelry grade nuggets are preferred by investors as they are in high demand from jewelers and collectors and therefore easier to resell at a premium.
Next we have collectors nuggets, which include the jewelry and investment grade nuggets mentioned previously, in addition to very rare gold nuggets, special shaped gold nuggets, gold nuggets in quartz, gold crystal nuggets, and crystalline gold nuggets. A complete collection will include something from each of these categories, and you will find a wonderful collection of hand selected jewelry and investment grade nuggets on our website. You will also find rare gold coins, platinum nuggets, platinum crystals, and silver bullion coins.
