Finding and Selecting the Highest Quality Jewelry at Pawn Shops
Looking to find the highest quality jewelry at your local pawn shops? We’ll show you how so long as you promise to make Traders Loan and Jewelry, the Valleys oldest and best pawn shop and jewelry store, your very first stop!

Embrace The Power of Pre-Owed

While there are plenty of places out there that will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to tell you new is always better, we’re here to tell you it’s a total exaggeration. Pre-owned items, including jewelry, can often be worth even more in the long run for a number of reasons. You’re far more likely to find something exceedingly rare, handmade, or antique at a pawn shop versus a chain jewelers. You get to appreciate the history and uniqueness of pieces you likely couldn’t even find at traditional stores. Plus, everything you find, including new/modern pieces, will be priced well.

Ask Plenty Of Questions

Whether you know a lot about jewelry or not, make sure you ask as many questions as you need to in order to feel comfortable buying the item you’re interested in. You can, and should, ask about the pawn shop’s credentials and how inventory is chosen. You can ask about the history of each piece you’re interested in so you can feel more connected to them. You even can ask about quality, function, personalization, repairs, cleaning, or warranties. Anything you want. Our job is to make you comfortable and excited about your purchases with us. It’s why we’ve been named the best for more than 60 years!

Look Carefully

While it’s true that pawn shops take great pride in the quality of the jewelry they sell, many items are sold as is. An item may show natural signs of wear and tear, or have small scratches or damage, or it may be in perfect condition with no issues at all. So, pay attention when you’re looking at different pieces. Make note of any karat markings or inscriptions. If you see weak clasps, broken chain links, loose/twisted prongs, loose/missing stones, scratches, chips, discoloration, or any other problems, see if you can get them repairs/restored by your in-house jeweler.

Ask For Guarantees

Honesty is important when shopping at a pawn shop, so don’t be afraid to ask for a guarantee. Here at Traders Loan and Jewelry, our only goal is to help you find the jewelry that’s going to make you happy. We don’t need to lie to you to sell you jewelry because we know even if we don’t have something you love now, it’s only a matter of time before we have a completely new inventory of premium jewelry for you to browse through. One thing we’ll guarantee right now though is that we’ll always do everything we can to help you find the jewelry you’ll love!
