JTV Gold Exchange is affiliated with Jewelry Television®. As one of the largest jewelry retailers in the country, Jewelry Television® (“JTV”) is opening the world of fine jewelry and gemstones to everyone, every day. For over 15 years, JTV has been committed to offering the largest selection of fine jewelry and gemstones at great prices — while providing its customers outstanding service and quality. We invite you to join the Jewelry Television® family of customers and find out why millions of viewers trust JTV for all of their jewelry and gemstone purchases!
As gold prices have climbed, JTV customers have continued to ask when JTV would provide this service. They see all the options with infomercials or internet sites, but don’t know whom to trust. It was decided to offer the service through JTV Gold Exchange because JTV felt strongly that its customers who wanted to sell their unwanted gold and platinum needed a place to go where they could trust the outcome. JTV listened to its customers and the result is The JTV Gold Exchange .

JTV Gold Exchange SM calculates the cash value of your items sent based on three factors:
• The price of gold or platinum as quoted by the London Afternoon Fix on the business day the packet is received.
• The karat content of your gold, which is a percentage of 24 karat:
- 10kt is 41.6% pure gold
- 14kt is 58.3% pure gold
- 18kt is 75% pure gold
- 22kt is 91.7% pure gold
- 24kt is 100% pure gold
• The actual weight of your items sent in.
Gold is usually tracked and sold internationally on a per ounce basis but since most jewelry items weigh far less than an ounce, two smaller measurement terms are used in our Industry; Grams and Pennyweights. We use pennyweights at JTV Gold Exchange.As a quick reference:
20 pennyweights = 1 ounce of gold
31.1 grams = 1 ounce of gold.
1 pennyweight = 1.555 grams
