Have your own supply of gold jewelry? If you were in ancient Egypt that meant you were either a pharaoh or breaking the law. Egyptians believed gold to be the skin of the sun-god Ra, so only their head priest and ruler, the pharaoh, was allowed to own or wear it.


Need to clear out your jewelry collection to make room for more? A gold buyer will be happy to speak to you and tell you about the prices your pieces may bring. A win for both of you, and more money for you.


The greatest amount of gold in the world is actually in the ocean, spread out in tiny particles. How great? They're estimated to have eight times the gold ever extracted from the earth. Unfortunately, extraction is too costly to make it worthwhile.


Did you know that gold has been used in heart surgery? In 2001, Boston Scientifics marketed the first ever gold-plated stent for use in open heart surgery. Niroyal, as it's called, is placed inside arteries and veins, and acts like a kind of scaffolding, enabling blood vessels to remain open and encouraging blood flow.


Ever wondered what that old, ugly gold chain might be worth? Why not find out? A gold buyer can give you a fair and honest assessment, and then can pay you a fair price for the pieces you decide to sell.


In 1300, the world's first hallmarking system was established. This system scrutinized the quality of precious metals, especially gold, guaranteeing purity and quality of content for consumers. Goldsmith's Hall in London was established at this time.


Gold is a very soft metal, while diamonds are one of the hardest substances on earth, but the two are very similar. Both are used in jewelry, but also have industrial applications. Both are also incredibly rare, but gold is actually rarer than diamonds.


The first US gold rush wasn't the famous California gold rush of 1948. It was about forty years earlier, after a 17 pound gold nugget was discovered in North Carolina. This marked the first gold discovery in the US, and when more gold was found nearby the first gold rush began.


There are many people who do not have an interest in jewelry, and we understand this. If you are one and have inherited some pieces, we can give you a fair price for them. Keep those pieces that have sentimental value, and bring the remainder to us.


In a pawn transaction, a loan is provided in exchange for some type of security or collateral. That piece of collateral’s resale value and condition are considered before a loan is given at a competitive interest rate. At a pawn shop, just about any item of value may be resold.


Trying to save up for that special trip or a down payment on a new home? Did you ever think of selling some of your unwanted jewelry as a means to those ends? Ask a gold buyer to see what they may be able to offer, then put it towards your goal.


Many 21st century technologies use gold electroplating, but few people know that this process was first begun in 1803. Professor Luigi Brugnatelli of the University of Pavia first discovered and later carried out experiments that proved the worthiness of gold electroplating in regards to improved conductivity.


The United Nations’ Bretton Conference was a gathering of 730 delegates from all 44 allied nations that met after the end of WW II and set the dollar to gold conversion rate. This fixed all currencies to the U.S. dollar, thereby creating a universal Gold Exchange Standard.


Selling your jewelry is one tried and true way to get by in tough times. Even the Tsar’s wife and daughters wore jewelry sewn into their corsets when they were taken captive during the Revolution. Why not ask a gold buyer if your jewelry might be your own hedge against tough times?


The infamous words, “Get gold, humanely if you can, but at all hazards, get gold!” were spoken by King Ferdinand of Spain in 1511, invoking unprecedented multiple expeditions to South America by Spanish explorers. Within only a few years, the Aztec and Inca civilizations would be virtually wiped out as a result.


The condition of your gold jewelry has no bearing on the value we place on it. Broken bits, scratches, and other defects are irrelevant because the items will be melted, purified, and converted into other products.


Do you know why dimes, quarters, half-dollars, and gold or silver dollar coins have grooves along their edges? It is because they used to be manufactured of either gold or silver, and their value was in their weight. Because unscrupulous individuals would shave bits of the metal off, the grooves were added to discourage this.


Pawn shops are a great place to find incredible deals. When looking for gold jewelry, diamonds, musical instruments, cameras, televisions, watches, laptops, tablets, cell phones, e-Readers, music players, and appliances (for instance), check out your pawn shop. You will be surprised what you find there.


If you have gold plated or gold-filled jewelry, that does not mean it is without value to us. The amounts used for plating and filling have minimum standards, but many jewelers use more than that. The best way to tell is to let us test it for you.


The price of gold was $19.30 per ounce in 1792, as was the price of silver—a result of the bimetric standard passed by Congress, which set the U.S. currency. This changed in 1834, when it went up to $20.67. In 1934, then President Franklin Roosevelt raised the price of gold to $35 dollars, and in 1971 it was again raised to $38 per ounce as a result of the Smithsonian Agreement.


If you’ve never been to a pawn shop before, you may be surprised by the quality of the jewelry you’ll find in our cases. Let’s talk about what type of jewelry you’re most interested in so that we can help you find the right pieces.


The small, pure gold locket may not look that big, but the malleability of gold makes it incredibly versatile. One quarter-sized chunk of gold, about an ounce, can be made into a thin, continuous sheet 100 square feet in size. 36 pounds of gold could cover an entire football field.


Pawnbrokers lend money on items of value ranging from gold and diamond jewelry, musical instruments, televisions, and other electronics to tools, household items, firearms, and sports gear. This makes them great places to shop and pick up a bargain.


Did you know that pawn shops that deal in firearms are regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF)? Pawn shops may also be federal firearms license holders and are an economical place to view firearms.


Did you know that gold has been taken to space? Indeed, the first manned space flight in 1961 used gold to protect various sensitive pieces of equipment from dangerous radiation. Less than 20 years later, in 1980, 41 kilograms of gold were used in the construction of the space shuttle.


If you’re looking for an outlet for your creativity, the pawn shop may be a place to check out. Most pawn shops have a wide selection of musical instruments at lower prices than you would find at music stores.


Outgrown your favorite fine jewelry but can’t have the size changed? Why not consider selling the pieces you can’t wear and replacing them with new items with the proceeds? The process is simple and quick and you might be surprised by the results.


One of the great things about pawning an item is the fact that it doesn’t affect your credit. When you miss a payment on a pawn, rather than taking a hit to your credit score, the item you pawned will be put up for sale.


In the United States, the pawn shop economy had sales of about $6 billion last year and is worth more than the worldwide art trade, which was valued at $5.8 billion in 2012. In 2011, the average pawn loan was about $150.


Selling or pawning an item at a pawn shop can be a great source for extra cash, but there are extra steps to take if you want to earn top dollar. Before bringing your items in for pawn, give them a quick clean to ensure a good offer.


Pawn loans can range from one to tree months or more, depending on your needs. Loans may typically be extended as long as interest is paid. Pawn loans are short-term and provide immediately money for the collateral item. Interest is charged monthly until the loan is paid back in full, and the collateral item is received.


Did you know that, when you pawn one of your valuable items, you do not immediately lose ownership? You are able to redeem your item when you have repaid your loan and interest. You are also able to extend the repayment period on the borrowed amount if you are unable to pay your loan within the original time frame. This option is unique to the pawn business.


Did you know that the early Egyptians were the first to smelt gold? In 3600 BC, Egyptian goldsmiths carried out the first smelting of gold so as to separate the precious metals inside of it. Blow pipes made from fire-resistant clay were used to heat the smelting furnaces.


The short-term credit activity that is generated by the pawn shop helps the community to pay bills of other local merchants by generating income into that community. Pawn businesses tend to do the bulk of their business with residents who live within a one-to-two-mile radius.
