I’m going to send scrap to a refiner for the first time and have a few questions. Thanks for your help!
- Do they take Vermeil? If yes, should it be separated from Sterling Silver or put in with the Sterling?
- Should I separate Argentium Sterling Silver from Deox Sterling Silver from standard Sterling Silver?
- Do they take gold fill? If yes, should it be separated by the karat of gold in it?
- Do they take brass and copper? I assume those need to be separated from everything else.
- I assume Fine Silver and 14 kt gold should be separated out from anything else?
- I assume stones should be removed? Do tiny CZs need to be removed?
