We do get grouped in with pawn shops because of the type of business we are – but we are very different in how we operate. Our company only purchases precious metal products from the public, we do not loan, and we only deal with precious metal. This allows us to keep our costs low and maintain very efficient processes, which allows us to pay you more than anyone in the area. So please remember this when you would like to sell any gold, silver or platinum jewelry. We do pay more, and we are all about customer service.
