I went into Samuelson's thinking I would have a better experience than in a pawn shop, but it was not. I did end up selling my unwanted pieces to them, but, only after the first person "Paul" gave me a pretty low offer, then I was emailed 2 times to come back in to have the owner "Ron" "see if he could stretch" the offer. Whatever that means? Anyway, I was told my Sitara diamond was hard to sell/market because it is from a chain store etc. ridiculous! I have had my fair share of "car salesmen" experiences to know one when I see/hear one. I was actually offered the second time only a few hundred more, but had to include my band and other pieces I had not even included when Paul made the offer. Truth be told, a pawn shop in Dundalk had offered me about $80-$100 more than Samuelson's, and if you are wondering why I didn't leave and take it, well I am asking myself that now too. I just didn't feel like fooling with all of it again, I had gone over selling my stuff for 2 weeks, and it really was just bad memories, so I thought, so be it. The one big thing that should have made me just go was when Ron said I couldn't wait, that he would not want to buy it if I left to think about it! While I waited, I asked, who I assume is his father the cost of a watch that was in the case, never got an answer, I guess I am not good enough to buy it...Ha! So a lesson to all, don't judge a book by it's cover, a simple pawn shop will give you just as good, if not better offer and not be so condescending in the process! One last note, don't ask for copies of things they make you sign, you are not allowed to have them and if you don't have an account with M&T, you will be charged to cash from Samuelson's account, so ask for cash!

Trust is of number one importance when you are taking your finer pieces to a jeweler for repair. I can trust the Lakein family and would never go anywhere else. I've been using Lakein's for 45 years. And while I'm waiting to be served, I can browse and always find some unusual gem, high quality, unique but reasonable price. They have great prices on gold chains. Lakein's is where I go for stocking stuffers, too. I can't even number the watches I have brought in for cleaning, crystal replacement, and new batteries. It was the jewelry store all my in-laws used as well. I can't say enough good things about Lakein's.
