Gold Buying

We buy all gold jewelry and gold coins. Hundreds of ounces of gold jewelry come through each week which means we can offer you the highest possible prices for your gold jewelry pieces since we deal with refineries in volume. See why our customers continue to return and travel long distances, because we consistently pay the highest!

What You Can Expect: . A full and free appraisal of your jewelry items which takes into account several factors: the purity, resale ability, and weight of your gold. We will inspect each piece thoroughly and conduct acid testing to ensure you receive the true and fullest value of your gold. We welcome you to bring in any jewelry you suspect might be gold and our buyers will happily test them for you. After the evaluation, we will make you an offer at fair market value and you will get paid on the spot!

Gold Pricing: The spot price you see for Gold refers to gold in its purest state, or 24 karat gold. Most solid gold jewelry items are made of  a composite gold and other metals for extended  durability. Common standard gold purity levels are 18 karat, or .750; 14 karat, or .585; and 10 karat, or .417. The price of each metal purity level daily is calculated as a relationship to the spot price of 24 karat gold.




"Ridgewood Coin is the best in New Jersey. Craig is a pleasure to deal with; he is very kind and makes the whole experience of purchasing gold/coins enjoyable. I’ve been to other coin shops in New Jersey to compare them, and no one has been as professional and helpful as Craig. I’ve only ever purchased from him, and if you are buying precious metals and/or coins from anywhere else, I highly recommend you make the switch to Ridgewood Coin. His prices are unbeatable, and it is clear he enjoys what he does as well. It is evident with other shops that their owners are only in it for the money, but that is not the case with Craig. I look forward to returning."

"This place is absolutely awesome!  Before I came here, I went to the mall to rid of my old jewelry and the guys offered me such a small  amount that I decided not to sell.  Then someone recommended Ridgewood Coin, the gentleman offered me 3x the amount the other places had offer me.  Will definitely be using this place again!"

"I've been buying and selling gold and silver coins here for years. I drive 45 minutes to get here because Craig pays the most. I've sold $20 coins and $5,000+ coins here. He knows the market and he's completely honest and totally transparent."

"I have been a satisfied customer for more than 20 years. This family run business is a pleasure to work with. Both as a buyer of gold coins and as a seller of multiple other collectibles, I have always been impressed with the easy and friendly way transactions are done. Honest and fair treatment has always been my experience. When dealing with all sorts of valuable items, the "trust" factor is most important. The folks at Ridgewood Coin are very knowledgeable and genuine. Every visit to the shop is an adventure and you never know what you'll find. The family is multi-generations of kind people who understand this specialized trade. I have recommended Ridgewood Coin to my family and friends for their important valuables. It's a pleasure to work with Ridgewood Coin." -Ron R., Customer (Yelp Review)
