Get started now using our Payout Estimator to get a close estimate of the payout you can expect for your precious metals. All you need to know to get started is the karat / precious metals content of your items and their weight. You can find detailed instructions on how to sort and weigh your items, use our Payout Estimator and send them in for an appraisal in our "How it works" section.
For your convenience, below you will find a list of Eastern Quebec cities and towns we service. Please keep in mind that our service is not limited to these areas. We will buy your precious metals all across Quebec and Canada.
HOW IT WORKS
Collect your unwanted jewellery and use our Payout Estimator
Collect the items you want to sell and group them by material and precious metals content. Enter the material weights along with your data into our payout estimator. After this you will receive an email with a shipping label, an order number and a link to enter your tracking number once you have shipped your jewellery.
Send your gold, silver and platinum items to us
Place jewellery and other precious metal containing items into a ziploc bag. Put the bag along with your order number into a small box, tape it shut and tape the shipping label to the outside of the package. Bring the parcel to your local post office and mail it to us as a tracked package. Use the link in our email to enter the tracking number for your shipment on our website.
Accept our quote and receive your top dollar payment
Once we receive your shipment, we list, weigh and test your precious metal containing items in our in house assaying lab and provide you with a quote via email. If you are satisfied and accept our offer, we will process your material and pay you via your chosen method of payment on the same day.

I had some jewelry that had been collecting dust for years, some old mismatched pieces. They were very nice and answered all my questions. I don’…
I was really pleased. They offered a lot more then my local pawn shop did and it was a quick and easy transaction! Definitely recommend True North Gold B…
EXAMPLE OF ITEMS WE BUY
An alloy is a partial or complete solid solution of one or more elements in a metallic matrix. Complete solid solution alloys give single solid phase microstructure, while partial solutions give two or more phases that may be homogeneous in distribution depending on thermal (heat treatment) history. Alloys usually have different properties from those of the component elements.
Alloying one metal with other metal(s) or non metal(s) often enhances its properties. For example, steel is stronger than iron, its primary element. The physical properties, such as density, reactivity, Young's modulus, and electrical and thermal conductivity, of an alloy may not differ greatly from those of its elements, but engineering properties, such as tensile strength and shear strength may be substantially different from those of the constituent materials. This is sometimes due to the sizes of the atoms in the alloy, since larger atoms exert a compressive force on neighboring atoms, and smaller atoms exert a tensile force on their neighbors, helping the alloy resist deformation. Sometimes alloys may exhibit marked differences in behavior even when small amounts of one element occur. For example, impurities in semi-conducting ferromagnetic alloys lead to different properties, as first predicted by White, Hogan, Suhl, Tian Abrie and Nakamura. Some alloys are made by melting and mixing two or more metals. Brass is an alloy made from copper and zinc. Bronze, used for bearings, statues, ornaments and church bells, is an alloy of copper and tin.
Unlike pure metals, most alloys do not have a single melting point. Instead, they have a melting range in which the material is a mixture of solid and liquid phases. The temperature at which melting begins is called the solidus and the temperature when melting is complete is called the liquidus. However, for most alloys there is a particular proportion of constituents (in rare cases two) which has a single melting point. This is called the alloy's eutectic mixture.
In practice, some alloys are used so predominantly with respect to their base metals that the name of the primary constituent is also used as the name of the alloy. For example, 14 karat gold is an alloy of gold with other elements. Similarly, the silver used in jewellery and the aluminium used as a structural building material are also alloys.
The use of alloys by humans started with the use of meteoric iron, a naturally occuring alloy of nickel and iron. As no metallurgic processes were used to separate iron from nickel the alloy was used as it was.
