Countrywide Gold Buyers and Gallery will pay top dollar for your unwanted gold, platinum and silver jewelry.
During the company’s November gold-buying events, Countrywide Gold Buyers will be offering additional incentives and paying cash on the spot. With gold prices at an all-time high, now is the time clean out your jewelry drawers, recycle and be rewarded.
The Countrywide Gold Buyers gold-buying events will take place at their three locations Nov. 26-28. They include London Square Mall, the newest location that opened in April; The Falls, and International Mall.
Countrywide Gold Buyers is owned by Edwin Carrion and Luis Junco, who have built a reputation upon doing business ethically.
“It’s important for people to be sure they are dealing with an established and reputable company in order to receive top dollar for their precious metals,” Carrion explained.
Carrion and Junco opened their first Countrywide Gold Buyers location in 2009 after serving together as sergeants in the U.S. Marine Corps, where they began buying and selling gold from overseas. Carrion operates the South Florida locations and Junco manages four locations in Rhode Island.
“We’ve taken all the good values and morals that we learned from our military experience and our families, and applied it to our business,” Carrion said.
The pieces purchased by Countrywide Gold Buyers and the customer transactions are reviewed by the local police department and the company’s scales are balanced, certified and sealed annually by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
“We test the customer’s pieces to determine the karat and then weigh everything right in front of the customer in an honest and transparent way,” Carrion said. “We also have the pricing for precious metals clearly posted and we inform the customer of the value of their pieces. The whole process may take 15-20 minutes and the average paid per client totals $800.”
Countrywide Gold Buyers takes pride in its mission of operating as a green company and customers can feel good that their recycling efforts reduce the extraction of precious metals from the earth.
“This is truly a unique process where the customer actually gets rewarded for recycling,” Carrion said. “It takes 20 tons of earth to mine enough gold to make one gold ring. When someone recycles an old gold ring, a new one can be made with no destruction to the environment.”
Carrion continued, “We send the precious metal to a refinery to be melted and then it moves on to jewelers who are certified in making new jewelry out of recycled precious metal,” he said. “It’s a win, win, win for the customer, our company and the environment.”
Countrywide Gold Buyers offers a referral program that rewards customers with a 2 percent commission on sales from referrals. You also can host a Gold Party at any of the Countrywide Gold Buyers’ locations or your home and earn 10 percent of the total purchases. The staff will provide refreshments and a fun, relaxed atmosphere for the party.
