Marie, North Bay, Timmins, Kenora and Canada wide. We pay top dollar for old gold, silver or platinum containing items and jewelry, such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, watches, coins, bars, silverware, crucibles, thermocouples or dental gold.

Why buy and sell gold and silver online with True North Gold Buyer?

We don't squander your money on local stores or free mail-in kits, thus allowing us to reduce costs and offer you the highest payouts in the business.

Have you ever wondered why you can buy the same item for a much lower price from an online store, such as Amazon, than at the retail store in your local mall? This comes down to one simple reason – Amazon's strategy has always been to focus on running an efficient online business, thereby being able to offer their customers the best prices, instead of wasting their customers' money on running a network of expensive local stores.

True North Gold Buyer is using the same principle to make sure you get the most cash for your gold. We are a registered Canadian online business and assay & refine all precious metals in one secure, central location. On top of that we keep the overhead costs low by not spending the value of your gold on local stores, local sales clerks or "free" return envelopes. This means all the money can go straight back to you as a higher payout than what any local competitors can offer.

No gold buyers with high payouts in your area?

Are there no gold buyers anywhere close to where you live, or just one that doesn't pay very well due to lack of competition? We can help you with that. If you have access to a post office, you have access to True North Gold Buyer.
Not only do we offer professional service all over Canada, we also pay rates that beat local gold buyers and pawn shops even in larger cities where there is a lot of competition.

Fair Payouts! No lowball offers, no lengthy haggling!

We are always completely open and honest about our payout rates.

We pay fair, market-driven prices for any gold, silver or platinum item we buy, with no hidden fees. When doing business with us you're guaranteed to get the most cash for your gold.
Simply use our payout estimator to calculate what we will pay for your items before sending them in. You just need to know the gold content of your items and have a scale to weigh them.
We are committed to providing the highest level of service to make sure you are 100% satisfied and to earning your repeat business and referrals. For our satisfied customers, we offer a referral program which will pay them 1% of any referral business we get through them.

No "free" mail-in kits?

Free mail-in kits don't exist. Customers always pay for these kits one way or another.

Our goal is to offer you the most cash for your gold and that is only possible because we don't squander your money on prepaid envelopes and kits. Competitors that give you so-called "free" mail-in kits force you to pay not only for your kit but also for all the ordered kits that are never mailed in. They either cover these costs by offering lower payouts or by cheating when weighing and testing your items. In our Blog we posted a comparison between our payout for a customer's lot vs. what a competitor with "free" mail-in kits would have paid.
Bottom line: With shipping fees taken into account she received $ 269 more for her jewelry than she would have received by falling for our competitor's "free" mail-in service.

We buy gold, silver and platinum rings

Gold, Silver & Platinum Rings

A finger ring is a circular band worn as a type of ornamental jewellery around a finger; it is the most common current meaning of the word ring. Other types of metal bands worn as ornaments are also called rings, such as arm rings and neck rings.
Rings are worn by both men and women and can be of any quality. Rings can be made of metal, plastic, wood, bone, glass, gemstone and other materials. They may be set with a "stone" of some sort, which is often a precious or semi-precious gemstone such as ruby, sapphire or emerald, but can also be of almost any material.

Shapes and styles

Various ring shapes and styles exist. The following are but a few.

  • Flat wedding bands are the simplest form of ring that can be made. A flat wedding band basically consists of a strip of metal that is bent around into a loop and joined where the ends meet.
  • Half-round rings, also called D-shape rings, are flat wedding bands that are filed half-round on the outside.
  • Sleeve rings are rings that consist of a thin inner ring or sleeve, with several other rings stacked onto it to form one solid ring. The rings can either be soldered onto the sleeve or the ends of the sleeve can be upset (like a tube rivet) to keep them all together. A little of both can also be done.
  • Solitaire rings are rings with a single large stone as a centrepiece, usually a diamond.
  • Eternity rings are rings with stones, usually diamonds, of the same cut and size, set in one row all around the ring. The stones are usually round or square, and the setting is usually either claws or a channel setting. When the stones do not continue around the entire ring, but stop halfway around the finger, it is called a half-eternity ring.
  • Trinity rings are three rings to be worn at one time.
  • Cluster rings are rings with a group of stones in a cluster setting, forming the focal point of the ring. The cluster setting usually consists of one large stone (usually round or oval) in the center surrounded with several smaller stones.
