Gold plated and gold filled items
Gold plated items contain a thin layer of gold over a different piece of metal – usually copper, nickel or silver.
Gold filled items consist of gold fused with a base metal, usually silver or brass. Gold filled items are generally thicker and heavier than gold plated items.
We will buy any item with a marking, however, the value of plated and filled items will be lower than gold items containing a higher karat purity.

Inspect the item for any hallmarks
- A resourceful method when determining gold purity is to look for hallmarks.
- Most precious metal items include hallmarks, which are markings engraved into the item, to help indicate the purity of the metal.
- Standard gold markings are 10K/417 (41.6%), 14K/585 (58.3%), 18K/750 (75%) and 22K/917 (91.6%)
- Common locations for jewellery for example can be found on the inside of a ring or near the clasp of a necklace
- In order to clearly see the hallmarks on these items, we recommend using a magnifying glass or a loupe.
- Plated/Filled items also have common markings such as GF (Gold Filled), GP (Gold Plated)
- Use a strong magnet!
- Another simple method to help in determining whether or not your item is gold is by using a magnet
- We recommend using a strong magnet, such as an earth magnet
- Precious metals such as gold and silver should NOT get picked up by the magnet.
- When you hold the magnet near your items, if the item is attracted to the magnet then that part is not made of any precious metal.
- If the item does not react to the magnet this does not mean that it is gold.
- The item can be heavily plated, which is why our experts use x-ray technology to ensure you receive a fair assessment on your items
Confirm the purity
- Once the item is confirmed to be made of precious metals, our next step is determining the purity of the item.
- With our X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) machine technology, we are able to determine the exact metal breakdown of your items allowing us to give you a fair market value for your gold items.
- The XRF machine is an x-ray that recognizes various metal compositions found within a precious metal item, informing us of the exact purity of the metal.
Following these simple steps allows Great Canadian Roadshow to make sure you get paid what you deserve for your items!
