Goldsmith gauntlets are one of the three possible glove rewards from Family Crest quest, along with Chaos gauntlets and Cooking gauntlets. They can be obtained by bringing the magical steel gauntlets (along with 25,000 gold) to Avan, who can be found in the Al Kharid mine (no cost if the gauntlets are still steel). The message "Avan takes your gauntlets, takes out a small hammer, and pounds them into a slightly new shape, then hands them to you." appears as this happens. The Goldsmith gauntlets increases the experience gained from smelting gold ore into a gold bar, from 22.5 to 56.2 experience — about 2.5 times as much as without the gauntlets.
After the mini quest Family Pest has been completed, the player can claim the goldsmith gauntlets from Avan at any time. They will not be charged 25,000 coins for additional pairs, and may own multiple forms of the Family Crest gauntlets simultaneously.
