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 ore into gold bars from 22.5 to 56.2. They can be obtained by bringing the family gauntlets to Avan at the Al Kharid mining site. If they are destroyed or lost due to death, these gauntlets may be re-obtained free of charge from Dimintheis and will have the same enchantment on them.
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. 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.
When smithing gold, 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 gauntlets also stack with bonus experience, doubling experience up to 112.4.
Without the gauntlets, it is possible to smelt approximately 1,250 gold bars per hour while running at max efficiency, and with the added experience from the gauntlets you can gain up to 70,000 Smithing experience per hour. If using superheat, it is possible to smelt around 2,500 ores per hour, yielding up to 140,500 Smithing experience per hour, as well as 132,500 Magic experience per hour.
If the player has the blacksmith's gloves, then the player will still receive the 1% boost they would get from wearing them, but not the full set bonus for wearing all five pieces of the blacksmith's set.
Goldsmith gauntlets give no bonus whatsoever during Double XP Weekends.

- Smelting gold ore 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).
- It would take 231,268 gold ore to reach level 99 Smithing from 40 while wearing these gloves, without any other experience boosts.
