The price includes a brand new pen-probe at £49.00 plus the tester at £75.00 = £124.00.
The price does not include a sample of 14ct which you will need to calibrate the tester. If you deal in jewellery, use anything you are certain is 14ct (e.g. anything hallmarked); if you don't have a sample of 14ct you can buy one from us as an optional extra.

- Original instruction manual
- Brand new pen-probe
- Battery (still in the tester, from when we checked it)
- UK mains adaptor (though it is also supplied with a battery) plus and extra connecting lead to get the adaptor to fit the tester properly

Condition / returns / guarantee
This item is £124.00. The current price on the internet varies from £440.00 (from the USA, so + VAT+ customs charges) to £650.00 (in the UK). You are paying only £124.00 for the following reasons, please read before buying and check that you are happy with this:
We have tested this thoroughly and find that it works most of the time. However, to be certain, you must test each item 3 or 4 or 5 times to see which readings are consistent, e.g. if your items reads "18ct" 3 times and "14ct" once and "22ct" once, you can be fairly certain it's 18ct. You may not send this back because the readings are inconsistent, that it why it is only £124.00.
Of course, if you just want to know if an item is "at least 9ct" - then you can't go wrong!
Apart from the above limitations, if it is unsuitable it may be returned for refund (refund excludes postage) in 14 days from the day you take delivery.
Make sure you have a sample of gold (must be exactly 14ct), otherwise you won't be able to use this - and the tester must still be returned in 14 days if you decide you don't like it. You must pay the return postage (please use a trackable service).
The guarantee (against total breakdown) is for one month from the date you took delivery.
