Neodymium rare earth Magnets

Small but incredibly powerful neodymium magnets, also known as rare earth magnets - perfect for quick and easy metal testing.

Magnets are great for:

  • Easy testing of costume jewellery.
  • Picking up fine drill bits, etc.
  • With a sock over them, they are great for picking up dropped steel shot.
  • Testing the non magnetic 'quench point' of steel tools.
  • Bolt them to walls or a desk for quick and easy tool holders.


The three primary magnetic metals we are interested in are iron, nickel, and cobalt. We will hopefully never find cobalt in any piece of jewellery, so it's more iron and nickel, to be honest.

All a magnet will do is tell you if something contains a large amount of one of the two. Typically, it'll be a large amount of iron, and will indicate a steel chain. Far easier than doing an acid test when working through a selection of pieces!


Pretty much everything attracted to a magnet will be costume jewellery, but check in a few places. The clasp is a poor choice, as the internal mechanism and spring will be made from steel, not copper, gold, or silver. Ideally, check the pendant and chain, or main body of any piece of jewellery.


These magnets are removed from desktop computer hard disk drives which are being recycled. Selling them like this keeps them in use, intact, and out of landfill.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
