We will not pay you for any items that are not gold or platinum. We will not pay you for stones like diamonds, gems, or pearls and we will not pay for plated jewellery. We also will not accept or provide any payments for watches, timepieces, or coins that are legal tender in Canada or elsewhere.

We cannot provide you any payments for, nor will we return any non-precious metal materials to you. This includes materials like diamonds, gemstones, and pearls. If you wish to have these stones removed prior to sending in your precious metals, we urge you to do so. Our appraisal will be based solely on the precious metal value.

You may send as much as you can fit in the bag.

Keeping with the traditions of Maison Birks, Maison Birks Gold Exchange values all of its customers and makes the security of your precious metals a top priority. Here is how our process works:

Once the package is received in our facility and logged, it is unpacked, weighed, and tested to determine the value of your goods. For your protection we videotape this process, keeping your package secure.

When the package is opened we verify that everything listed is included. After taking inventory of your package, we proceed to weigh and analyze each item in order to determine a value.

We also keep you informed during the process, making sure you never have to wonder what is happening with your precious metals. We notify you when the shipping kit is sent to you, provide you with tracking information for when you ship the kit back to us, let you know when we’ve received it in our facility, and then finally when the process is complete. Our Customer Care Department (1-855-873-7373) is also available to help you and answer your questions.

Nothing! It is completely free.
