Many states will pay you 5 or 10 cents each to recycle your used cans, bottles and papers. At Perry’s, we pay you to recycle your gold, coins, diamonds, and sterling silver – and we'll pay a lot more than 5 cents!
Is your jewelry sitting untouched in some dusty corner? Sell it to Perry’s to recycle. Many of the items you sell will be professionally cleaned and polished, then resold to a new owner. Other scrap metals will be melted, and then re-made into new pieces to be cherished for another lifetime. Each ounce of gold we buy is one less that must be stripped from the earth.
Mass jewelry production is a very recent phenomenon. 50 years ago, almost all engraving and design was done by hand. 150 years ago, master stonecutters worked for weeks to cut a single diamond. 250 years ago, a brick of gold had to be rolled out by hand before it could be crafted into jewelry. Hand crafting gems and jewelry is a time consuming, tedious process, but it is also a clean one - goldsmiths and master jewelers produce only a fraction of the byproducts that today's factories do! In addition, the quality, and attention to detail in estate, antique and vintage pieces is rarely seen in today’s jewelry – most of which is mass produced in cramped overseas factories. When a 19th century craftsman created a piece of jewelry, his reputation was only as good as the last piece he made. Many of the one-of-a-kind pieces in our showroom were made by hand to standards only seen today in the very highest end companies.
