I had some old gold jewelry that made me look like I should be in a 1970's adult film so I thought it was time to part ways. After much consideration I decided to go to Federal Gold Traders. I didn't want to go to some "back alley" type of place. The store was well lit and clean. The man in the store named "Ron" was professional but was dressed like he could have been in that 1970's film I referred to earler. After he tested the jewelry, I was given a price and at no time did I feel pressured to sell it. I decided to sell and before long, I was on my way with a check. I would recommend anyone with a handful of old jewelry and the dream of being a star to go to Federal Gold Traders.
What a pleasant surprise!!! I walked into the store, met the owner, gave him a small box of coins/jewelry. I thought, "Okay I might get $50.00 for all of this stuff!" Was I ever surprised. I received a very generous offer and took it. The funny thing is that most of the stuff I was going to just throw away. I figured it had no value, was I every wrong. The owner, Greg Martin is a very nice man and it was interesting just to hear some of his stories. Most people are like me - thinking they have items not worth much, and then they are pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend taking a trip to Gemco Coins & Jewelry shop. I plan to return in the future.
These guys opened up this past fall in the old NBC4 studio on Broad & High. I noticed the storefront on the way in to work. Always looks nice. Have long been curious what some of my jewelry might fetch on the market, but never had the guts or interest to visit 'other' locations. This place made me feel comfortable. Check out their pictures. The store is nicer than my bank! The store manager was professional and kept me informed through the entire process. No hidden games. He offered me a great price up front ($450 for a ring and a broken necklace!), no haggling. I would bring my MOM to this place!
