With rising gold costs, there has been a growing trend of consumers that are converting unworn gold jewelry into cash.

Bud Blair, owner of says, Spot Gold prices are a poor indicator of what to expect. To calculate your scrap gold, you first need to separate the gold by karat fineness, such as 10 karat versus 24 karat. Testing can involve some gold loss, so it is better if you can read the stamped numbers. Some items may be gold plated and not worth selling. There is a formula based on the karat fineness you need to know, based on the weight of your gold.

The formula for gold by karat fineness is important, since 10 karat gold is not as pure as 24 karat, obviously. Gold prices are based on pure, 24 karat gold. So the formula to find out the value by the ounce of lesser quality gold would be:

10 karat= 10/24 = .4167 multiplier
14 karat= 14/24 = .5733 multiplier
18 karat = 18/24 = .750 multiplier

You simply take this multiplier times the price of 24 karat gold prices by the ounce to get the appropriate ounce price for your gold. Then you can weigh your gold to find out the total value. Of course, the spot gold price fluctuates daily, so the price you receive for your gold will depend on the market price the day you sell.
