Welcome to Prospector's Gold & Gems!

We now have a youtube channel that has videos of us doing assay work, melting gold and short tours. Learn more about the process and see some cool things that happen behind closed doors!

Please visit and subscribe as we are adding new videos all the time.


Thanks for stopping by! Now here's a little bit about what we do: we buy gold, silver, platinum and palladium items at extremely competitive rates and refine them to .999+ purity. We then use the fine gold and silver to make fine hand-poured, stamped and finished silver bars and handcrafted gold coins. We use the recycled metals in our custom jewelry line as well: DE Mokume, specializing in the creation of fine mokume gane wedding rings, engagement rings and various other forms of mokume gane jewelry. Almost all of the metals we use are recycled and refined in one way or another, be it old, broken or unworn jewelry we purchase from our clients at our facility, at trade shows we attend, or are shipped to us from all over the world, to placer gold found by prospectors and brought or shipped to us for refining. We contract with various local and nationwide distributors to sell our products; we also make casting grain for other jewelers, as well as gold, platinum and palladium blanks for renowned die artist Daniel Carr (who, in turn, makes dies for us to use in creating our 1/10th ounce gold bullion coins).
