Albert truly is phenomenal. He took the time to go thru all my items and paid me top dollar. I am in a very bad situation and needed the money so I shopped it around. Albert was highest price out there. Incredibly higher than a few shops. Thank you for your integrity and honesty!

I have dealt with Gold and Jewelry Direct for many years and have only accolades for their reasonableness and honesty. I don't believe there is a better place to sell precious metals.

Had a fair and honest transaction with this business. Albert was welcoming, friendly and professional. I was in and out in under 15 minutes was pleased with our transaction. I would definitely return to do business here.

Recently stopped in to sell old jewelry that i still cannot believe I ever wore. A nice gentleman, Albert, looked over my items. He was very pleasant and nice. Explained everything and gave me the price. I took the money very quickly, It was a great amount. Very happy I stopped in and dealt with him. Thank you so much.

I went down to sell some gold that had been sitting unused in my jewelry box for years, and I was in need of some extra cash. Well, I was advised what would be advantageous to sell and what I was better off keeping. I felt zero pressure into making a poor decision at all. They were honest, friendly, helpful, and professional.

While there, I looked at some of their bridal jewelry. We are in the market for that right now and I must say they have an offering of beautiful pieces at a very affordable price. We will definitely be repeat customers.

I would like to add, we are from out of the area. It was about an hour drive for us, but it was totally worth the drive for the integrity as well as the value on both selling and purchasing!

In fact, learning that they also perform repairs, I honestly think that I will be coming back to them for all of our jewelry needs!

Came to do my Christmas shopping for the wife. They have a great selection on diamond jewelry. Albert and his employee showed me many pieces and really helped me to get something fantastic for my budget. My wife will love it on Christmas morning. Thank You.

IMPORTANT: It appears that many of the other reviews of this establishment are complete fabrications. You will learn why this is case the moment you have ANY interaction with Gold & Jewelry Direct.

As I have dealt with virtually every numismatic dealer in the Chicago area, I can easily say Gold & Jewelry Direct in Algonquin is the worst establishment in every dimension. Basically, the place is a cross between a low-end pawn shop and a used car dealership. Their routine is actually comedic. If you are interested in being entertained go there.

My first experience with the owner of Gold & Jewelry Direct was on the phone as I attempted to ask some basic pricing questions that any legitimate dealer could easily answer in 15 seconds. Of course, he obfuscated and suggested he was too busy to answer a simple question, which was the price of a very common NGC graded $20 gold piece. What was laughable and dishonest is his claim that all grading is different. The truth is there are only two [major] reputable grading agencies - NGC and PCGS. But alas, I had to come in person because of such variabls.

When I ultimately arrived against my better judgement, the shady staff person wasted 25 minutes of my time calling his boss *repeatedly* (above), trying to analyze the sealed, graded coin (basically unecessary) and telling me how they had 13 of the exact same coin in their vault. Again, the subterfuge was very much like a used car dealership. I can't imagine anyone wanting to do business with this business if they understood better alternatives exist.

Great Coin shop! They paid me best price. I went to few different stores to check around. I wish I would have checked reviews before going. Would have saved me a lot of time. Albert was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. He went over my large coin collection and priced everything out. I recommended to few of my buddies already and now I want to recommend to others. Thanks.

Had great experience. Really know their stuff about coins. I had a massed large collection over the years and due to recent circumstances I finally had to part ways with all my coins. Albert really helped me out and paid me great. Would recommend him to anyone.

Very happy with my service here. They treated me with a lot of respect and gave me more than fair market value. The other store I have been to was nowhere near as nice or near the price I got here for my silver coins. Highly recommend!

I stopped in to sell silver coins. I had bought a large amount many years ago and it was time to cash them in. Albert really knows his coins. He spent quite some time with me going thru everything and informing me about them. I really liked the knowledge he gave me. Made me feel really comfortable. The other coin shops did not give me any kind of great treatment like Albert did. Thank you for you honesty and fair pricing!

I have visited Gold & Jewelry Direct several times now and I always get a great price for my items and I am always treated with respect. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional. I shopped around to a few other places and got the best price here every time. I highly recommend them!

Such an amazing experience at Gold and Jewelry Direct! I couldn't be happier with my ring and my husband's band. Albert is so amazing and his employees are great. They both make you feel comfortable and best part of all they are NOT rushing you to pay for something you don't want just like other Jewelers do. The work here is top quality and custom made by Albert. I highly recommend this place to everyone because I know you won't be disappointed.

Decent & honest folks here!! I had an old engagement ring that I wanted to sell and Gold and Jewelry Direct was the ONLY jeweler whom was fair and didn't make an insulting offer. The staff and owner were very friendly, professional and unpretentious..unlike MANY of the other jewelers I visited beforehand. Also, I took a look at their inventory while my ring was being appraised and they have beautiful pieces! I will definitely be back and next time I'll bring my husband! ;)

Great experience, selling gold & silver to Gold and Jewelry Direct. I worked with Albert and he was honest, clear, and very welcoming. He was very honest about the value of all my pieces and the process went smoothly, efficiently, and very pleasantly. I would definitely recommend Gold and Jewelry Direct for no-nonsense selling of gold & silver. Thanks!
