Pawnshops: 10 Things to Know »
Most people think of pawn stores as a way to make cash quickly or a place to buy an inexpensive ring. In reality, they're a lot more complex than simple buy-and-sell transactions…
Before pawning an item, take a minute to learn the ins and outs of how these stores operate.
Excellent service and great prices. Tony took the diamonds from an outdated ring and made a beautiful new ring. I highly recommend this store
great products and service. I purchased a diamond ring for my wife and she loves it! I will shop again
If you want a great selection of wedding rings and terrific people, Champaign Jewelers is a no brainer! My fiancé and I are wedding photographers and have seen a great variety of wedding rings but when it came my turn to propose, I wanted people that would treat me right and give me something unique that I know will last a lifetime. I’m please to say that the folks at Champaign Jewelers EXCEEDED all of my expectations! I met with Susan and gave her a rough idea of what I was looking for. We did a little snooping on the soon to be fiance’s Pinterest page (note to self guys-figure out your fiance’s wedding page on Pinterest if you want your lives to be a little easier ;) and were able to incorporate some of her inspiration and my input and within an hour, we had the right one picked out. I’ve never been so excited in my life and that was only enhanced by the staffs excitement! They are a smaller Jewelry store which I love because it feels more like a family. That’s something that you won’t find that the chain stores. The folks at Champaign put you first and I’ll be going to them for any of my future jewelry needs!
My husband bought my 2nd wedding ring - a 10 year anniversary gift at Vinca's. Then later he had a pair of earrings made to match. My son and his now wife had her engagement and wedding rings custome designed and made by Simon. as well as my son's ring. Now it's my daughter's turn and her engagement ring came from Vinca's. Guess where she and her fiance are shopping for the wedding bands! Simon, Elizabeth (his wife) and their manager, Tu all provide excellent service. The store's inventory is exquisite, with something for nearly everyone.
Of all the pawn shops around, this is the place to go. This store is no hole in the wall. They have a substantial amount of power tools and the largest guitar section I have ever seen at a pawn shop. The staff is friendly and helpful and their prices are fair. They are often willing to haggle but if your going in for something with not enough money, it helps to have something to trade. Just don't bring in any under powered power tools, they have a pretty high standard along those lines.
I have been going to Lichtenberg's for over 10 years. They have a great selection in all price ranges and I love the fact they can do my jewelry repairs and watch repairs in less time than other jewelers. Their prices on repairs are the best!
This business is not even worth of a star. I had them fix my bangles, 21K; one was broke and the other was cricket. When I first took the bangles to them, they examined them and assured me that they will fix them without any problems. The only thing that the guy said was that the broken one will show that it has been fixed due to the pattern on the bangle and I said I understand that. When I went to take them back, the color on the part that had been fixed was totally different than the rest of the bangle and the one that had been straightened now has a crack that can break anytime. When I questioned why, the guy started yelling. They have ruined my bangles, but expected me to be happy as they didn't charge me for it. So, they basically wanted me to be happy for waiving 60 for ruining at least 1500 $ bangles. The funny part is that the guy was telling me that he will not accept repairs from me any more...I laughed and said, will I bring you anything again. They don't look legitimate, plus I couldn't find them in BBB's website.
Thank you for the repair you did on my engagement ring. I think it looks even better than the day I got it!! I really appreciate the great service.
If you are interested in a layaway from this place I would say to not do it. I should have read what I signed. If you do not make your payment they not only pull the layaway but they also keep any payments you make. They are a ripoff!
Classy, high end, comfortable, professional, trustworthy and local! What else could you ask for?
