Our shop and the home of Kraftwerks.

CAD Model Casting Services Available

In Platinum, Gold, Palladium or Silver

We have always kept a casting shop running in our refinery. It helps us improve the metals, provide good advice to you as a caster and lets us fill in a blank or two for you when needed. Whatever kind of casting you might need, you can lean on us for the toughest jobs. Or maybe you cast in gold but not palladium. We can help.

Wire & Sheet-In Gold And Platinum

We make our own wires and sheet in gold, platinum and palladium white gold. From 8ga. to 30ga. round. Rectangular sizes, square and sheet up to 4 inches wide.

Watching Gold Refining

We do gold refining in house, in our own lab. This is where sentimental or "same molecule" gold recovery happens. In any case this is where scrap becomes pure again.

Expert/Consulting Services

Rely on our expertise when questions or issues arise. Technical consulting and expert testimony is available if needed.

PMWest -The Innovators

So much has changed in the last few years. We probably have something in common. We both survived that hard recession. Those were hard days with hard choices. The good news is the recovery changed us enough to make the way we do things here more helpful to you than ever. We are a team of long experienced professionals. Are you making or repairing jewelry? Perhaps you are an independent designer that welcomes a little technical and production assistance sometimes. In any case we are your people. Family owned, PMWest now experiences a 30+ year history. The history in which we pioneered recycling/sustainability and focus on the jewelry business exclusively. No corporate/industrial distractions. If you depend on top quality precious metals to make your product you need to know us. Today's millennial customers are taking a fresh approach. So do we. Check out our patents in solders. Or our annual Kraftwerks event designed to advance any jewelers skills. Another way to get to know us is look at our complete documentary in HD on how a small shop can in fact produce purple gold in 19kt. Let me make a personal offer. Next time you have a question about a precious metal and how to best use it, fix it or just understand it give Daniel Ballard a call. Let us show before your first order with us how good we are. We will earn your business with your trust. 800-999-7528 or Daniel@preciousmetalswest.com. If its precious metals work right at hand, it’s Precious Metals West you should call.
