Most countries require some stamp stating the gold karat, but few effectively enforce and hold the jewelers
accountable. Therefore, we do not require a gold karat stamp of 10kt, 14kt, 18kt, 22kt, all items are tested to
accurately determine the gold content of each item.

Prices are based on weight and karat grade contained in the items, not its value if resold. For this reason, the
company cannot pay for gemstones or other small diamonds under .20pt (1/5ct).
The consultation is free of charge and there is no obligation to sell

Jewelry items are usually stamped 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k. If there is no stamp, we can test the item for you.

9. Can I do a preliminary test on my gold?
Yes, take a magnet and run over your items. If anything is solely attracted to the magnet it is not real gold. However,
some clasps are metal, so if you are unsure about the piece, let us test it when we evaluate your items.

10. What happens to gemstones on rings, bracelets?
These items are often too time-consuming and difficult to remove without damage. We give you a value for your entire
lot of items which includes the value of any gems or small diamonds which are part of the jewelry. In our analysis,
however, most of these have little or no value and the weight of the item may be discounted by the stone alone.

City, State or Zipcode:
The USA PATRIOT Act (Uniting and Strengthening of American by Providing Appropriate Tools
Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism) was signed into law on October 26, 2001. Section 352 of the
act directly requires that “dealers” in precious metals, stones, or jewels” implement a written AML
program. The interim final rules came into effect January 1, 2006. The recent senate action does not affect
the jewelry industry. Section 352 was not do to expire and remains law.
What is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is the process of hiding the existence, use, or origin of illegally derived funds to make
the funds appear legitimate. In 1970, the U.S. Congress enacted the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) in order to
help combat money laundering. This required financial institutions to maintain records and file reports
regarding particular transactions that might be associated with money laundering. Although dealers in
precious metals were listed, FinCEN did not define terms or issue regulations regarding dealers. Instead
the focus was most notably directed at banks. The USA PATRIOT ACT amends the BSA and now
requires that “dealers” in precious metals implement a written AML program.
Why the Jewelry, Pawnbroker, and Mining Industries?

These industries are widely known for its vulnerability to money-laundering schemes. Treasury describes
why the industry is so susceptible to this crime.
“Precious metals, precious stones, and jewels are easily transportable, highly concentrated forms
of wealth. They serve as international mediums of exchange and can be converted into cash
anywhere in the world. In addition, precious metals, especially gold, silver, and platinum, have a
readily, actively traded market, and can be melted into various forms, thereby obliterating refinery
marks and leaving them virtually untraceable. For these reasons, precious metals, precious stones,
and jewels can be highly attractive to money launderers and other criminals, including those
involved in the financing of terrorism” (68 FR 8481).
Who is a “Dealer” in Precious Metals?

A person engaged within the United States as a business in the purchase AND sale of precious metals with
annual purchases of at least $50,000 AND annual sales of at least $50,000 in a calendar or tax year.
Exemption for Retailers:
If you are a retailer and purchase only from other dealers (as defined by the rules) who implement a U.S.
AML program, you do not need to comply. If you do purchase from non-dealers, such as members of the
public, foreign sources of supply, or estate sales, than you must comply.
Precious Metals: Treasury defines precious metals as gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium,
ruthenium, iridium, or osmium that have a purity level of 0.500 (50%) or more or an alloy containing .500
or greater, singly or in any combination.

Covered Goods: Precious metals, stones, or jewels and finished goods that derive 50% or more of their
value from precious metal contained in or attached to such finished goods.
Cash: The following is considered cash: cash, cashiers checks, money orders, travelers checks, bank
Suspicious Activity: Attempted transactions or a pattern of transactions that you know, suspect, or have
reason to suspect involve criminal activity, are designed to evade BSA laws, appear to serve no business
purpose, for which there is no reasonable explanation, and may involve financial transactions to facilitate
criminal activity.

Willful Blindness: occurs when a person is deemed to have knowledge that proceeds were derived from an
illegal activity and purposely ignored those facts.
AML Program Obligation
The AML obligation only covers transactions in precious metals as they are defined above. Therefore,
lower-grade refining transactions, purchases of precious metal for incorporation into industrial equipment,
precious metals with a purity level less than 0.500, and toll refining transactions are not required to be
covered by the AML program.
What Does the USA PATRIOT Act Require?

1. The designation of a compliance officer to develop and respond to money laundering issues.
2. An evaluation to determine the risks the business faces in regards to money laundering.
3. The development of written policies and procedures for encountering and dealing with money
laundering and the internal controls for such policies.
4. An ongoing employee training program
5. An independent audit function to test the program
What are the Penalties for Non-Compliance?
1. Civil penalties could include a fine of up to $250,000 or two times the amount of the transaction,
not to exceed $1,000,000.
2. Criminal sanctions could be a fine up to $500,000 and/or a maximum of 10 years in prison.
