Goldsmith gauntlets are a pair of members-only gloves that are available after completing the Family Crest quest. When worn, the gauntlets increase the Smithing experience gained when smelting gold bars from 22.5 to 56.2. There are no requirements to wear these gloves and they can be obtained by bringing the magical Family gauntlets to Avan who can be found in the Al Kharid Mine. There is a charge of 25,000 coins to change the gauntlets into goldsmith gauntlets if you already had them set to a different pair of gauntlets. After an update he is no longer labelled "Man" but instead his real name "Avan".
When smithing gold, these Goldsmith gauntlets are better to use for experience than brawling gloves(smithing) because they give 56.2 experience per bar, while brawling gloves only give 33.75 experience per bar, unless smelting in the Wilderness, which would yield 4 times the experience. Goldsmith gaunlets also stack with a pendant of smithing, doubling experience to 112.4 experience per bar, though a bug only shows a bonus 22.5 experience given whilst still removing the full 56.2 experience from the pendant.
Note: If dropped or lost due to death, these gauntlets may be re-obtained free of charge from Dimintheis and will have the same enchantment on them. 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.
Note: This bonus does not stack with bonus experience weekend bonuses.
Without the gauntlets it is possible to smelt about 1250 gold bars per hour while running at max efficiency, and with the added exp from the gauntlets you can gain up to 70,000 Smithing exp per hour.
If using superheat, it is possible to smelt around 2500 ores per hour, yielding up to 140,500 Smithing exp per hour, as well as 132,500 magic xp per hour. However, this method is very clicking-intensive and very expensive.

- Smelting gold bars while wearing the Goldsmith gauntlets not only provides fast smithing experience, it is also cheap compared to smithing platebodies, unless you make the bars at the Blast Furnace (steel and above).
- Before Barrows armour received a small colour change in the switch to HD, many players who hadn't done Recipe for Disaster would wear these in place of Barrows Gloves, since they had a very similar colour to the Barrow's armour's spikes.
- Assuming a player mines his or her own gold ore, to cover the 25,000 cost to convert the gloves, they would need the profit from 178 gold bars (based on G.E. price of 141 per gold bar).
