With the store open at Westfield Queensgate Mall almost 2years now, thousands have benefitted from exchanging unwanted, broken & damaged jewellery for instant cash. Gold Buyers NZ purchases yellow, white & rose gold as well as silver & platinum jewellery, dental gold, gold coins, nuggets & bullion. Simply bring in any damaged chains, bracelets & bangles, earrings & wedding bands; basically anything you no longer want, and in any condition. Be it a single earring, broken chain, or a ring with the stones missing, "You can have your jewellery professionally tested by one of our gold buyers, who will perform a free purity test while you wait " says Joanna. Everything is tested using traditional assay techniques, it is sorted into the carat groups then weighed using certified scales. The tests determine the gold content and value of the items which is based on the second-hand gold spot price, and is updated regularly throughout the day. This free process happens right in front of the customers, with a no obligation quote at the end. "We figure if you can wear something for 10years, break it or get sick of it & still get some money for it, that's got to be a good thing, right?" The stones can be returned for keepsakes or resetting into another piece perhaps, or if left in will be donated to charity. Recycling gold is an environmentally friendly practice with huge benefits to the environment. Joanna says "sourcing a brand new 18kt gold ring can leave behind tonnes of cyanide saturated waste products. It is unfortunate that this is often the result of open-pit mining." The team at Gold Buyers NZ encourages you to clear out your jewellery clutter, including all your odds and ends, and recycle your old broken unwanted gold for cash. "The more money we give you, the better it is for the environment," says Joanna.

Photo: AMY JACKMAN By AMY JACKMAN Buggy walks prove a hit A sunny and hot day on December 1 saw a record number of mums and babies turn up for the Harcourt Park Buggy Walk. Organised by the Greater Wellington Regional Council and Sport Wellington, buggy walks are a free event at buggy-friendly parks and tracks around the greater Wellington region and are aimed at parents or caregivers with children under 5. The walks take from 45 minutes to one hour depending on the track and fitness levels. Bethany Wickham says she has been to buggy walks before in Wellington and enjoyed being able to do one with her ante-natal group in her own community. It was really nice. I've done part of the walk before and it was really nice to keep up with the pace and people were really helpful around the whole loop. Good weather, good com- pany and good coffee, it had all the ticks really.'' Sport Wellington young persons adviser Tania Atkinson said the day was great. It's been so good and it's good to see so many people out there and everyone meeting different people. People are also asking about the different walks . . . so they are really inquiring about getting out there.'' Buggy walks are held on the first Thursday of every month. The next one will be held at Tunnel Gully on Tane's Track on January 5, 2012. During summer they are held in Greater Wellington Regional Council parks and forests, where a ranger leads the walk and gives infor- mation on the track or park.
