With the price of gold and precious metals rising; many organizations are buying scrap jewelry in "buy back programs". Below is a brief overview of how Skyray XRF offers an economic solution to accurately determine the full constituents and value of a piece of jewelry.
Overview…Many jewelry retailers have once again started buying scrap jewelry because of the slowing economy and the price of gold and other precious metals. Many retailers offer “gold buy back programs” as a way to increase store traffic and, most important, increase cash flow when they resell the jewelry over the counter or sell it to precious metal refiners.
What XRF Models are the Most Popular?
While most of the Skyray XRF instruments perform identification of unknown jewelry, the models EDX-3000 and EDX-600 are the most popular units for jewelers because they are compact chambers (don’t take up retail store space) – and both are low-cost options. The EDX-3000 is our most popular analyzer and the answer for full precious metal analysis and the EDX-600 is our lowest cost unit and an excellent machine for gold testing needs - however, mobile testing capabilities are becoming popular and the EDX-660 (mobile desktop) and handheld system are growing in popularity.
No matter what your budget or exact testing needs, Skyray XRF will have a few options worth considering.
