Precious Metal Recycling Program

In an effort to offer a sustainable, transparent alternative to silver/gold buyback programs, we've created the Lackadazee Precious Metal Recycling Program!

It's so easy!

1. Print and fill out our Precious Metal Recycling Program Form

2. Place the form and the items you want to be recycled (make sure the items are secure and not loose in the package) into a package.

3. Ship to

Lackadazee
1731 Frankfort Avenue
Louisville, KY 40206

 

4. Once received, your items will undergo a quality verification by our trained staff. If they meet our requirements, you'll receive a special discount to our shop in exchange for your items! The higher the quality and weight of the items, the better the perks! Check out our Recycling Credit Calculator HERE to see what discount you're eligible to receive. Please note: Perks do not apply to gold fill or plated items.

5. Accepted items will be melted down, turned into new products & will help reduce waste in the fine jewelry industry!

Check out our FAQs for more information or email us at lackadazee@gmail.com.

PLEASE NOTE:

- This is a recycling program, not a "cash for gold/silver" initiative. The mission of our recycling program is to provide our customers with a convenient, safe and transparent way to properly dispose of their unwanted/broken jewelry.

- Sometimes, in order to test the quality of metals, jewelry may need to be CUT INTO OR THE SURFACE MAY BE SCRAPED. By sending in any items, you are consenting to our metalsmiths possibly scraping or cutting into any items sent.

 

What can I send in?
You can mail us anything containing gold (10k-24k) or sterling silver. That includes broken jewelry, brooches, silver flatware, rings, scraps of silver/gold, etc. We accept plated or filled items however these items are not eligible for perks. If you're unsure of whether we will accept an item, send us an email at lackadazee@gmail.com with a picture and description of the item.

 

Why aren't plated or fill items eligible for perks?

Lackadazee does not have the capability to recycle plated or filled items. For this reason, we will accept these items for our recycling program only for your convenience. These items cannot be used by Lackadazee and will be sent to a third party program to be properly recycled.

 

What do I get in exchange for my items? 

As this is a recycling program, we do not offer cash for items. We do, however, offer a Lackadazee discount for any items that meet our requirements based on the items weight and purity as a thank you for responsibly recycling your precious metals!


How Do I Turn My Items Into the Program?

Items can either be dropped off at Lackadazee or mailed to 

Lackadazee
1731 Frankfort Avenue
Louisville, KY 40206

 

Whether you are dropping items off or mailing them in, all items should be secured together in some kind of container (sandwich baggie, old pill container, etc.) with your name and this completed FORM. Please be aware that you are responsible for all shipping & handling costs.

 

If my items do not meet the recycling program requirements or I change my mind, can I get my items back?
Absolutely! Once your items have been received and processed, you will receive an email letting you know if your items met our requirements and how much store credit you are eligible to receive. You have 10 business days to respond and confirm before items are recycled or donated. If you would like your items back, please be aware that you are responsible for shipping & handling on returns.

 

Do you accept diamonds and other gemstones?

We do not currently accept diamonds or gemstones. If you would like to turn your old gemstones or diamonds into a new piece, click HERE to submit a custom jewelry inquiry.
