As more jewelers have turned to silver and gold buying as a way to generate revenue during tough economic times, Arch Enterprises has expanded its capacity to service the jewelry industry’s need for a reputable silver, platinum, and gold refiner. In addition to offering very competitive refining rates on scrap jewelry and components, we can refine bench sweeps, grindings, polishing dust, and silver oxide batteries.

Payouts on scrap jewelry are based on the amount and regularity of your shipments. We have built a strong base of jewelry store and gold buying clients by offering very competitive rates on high volumes of gold.  Plus, as one of the largest silver refiners in the United States, we can offer extremely competitive returns on scrap silver jewelry, flatware, and other items.

With our XRF analytical testing equipment, we have the technology to evaluate non-marked items and account for the precious metal in these pieces.

Other items that jewelers, jewelry manufacturers, and jewelry mills regularly refine for precious metal content include:

  • Sheets
  • Wires
  • Chains
  • Rods
  • Sizing Stocks
  • Mesh
  • Powder/Sponges
  • Casting Alloys
  • Casting Grains

Many jewelers have space in their facilities for resizing, shaping, and customizing items.  The precious metal dust and grindings generated during these processes can often accumulate in sink traps, floor mats, carpets, rags, floor sweeps, and vacuum bags. When gold and platinum prices are high, even small amounts of these precious metals can add up to large returns. We have the ability to refine precious metal from the following items:

  • Bench Sweeps
  • Polishing Dust
  • Grindings
  • Filings
  • Shavings

Silver Oxide Batteries
Arch Enterprises is one of the few refiners in the country to offer silver oxide watch battery refining. Our streamlined program ensures that the maximum amount of silver is extracted from batteries.
