fast, easy and fair

We have taken several pieces of jewelry to the Jewelry Buyer and we feel that they consistently pay above the rates quoted by other jewelers. Randy will always give an explanation if we want one, for the pricing, and we feel confident that we are getting a fair price for our jewelry. And there is never any pressure -- it's a very relaxed vibe.
Unbelievable knowledge and passion for his craft...respects the customer too!

I went in to The Jewelry Buyer not knowing what to expect, but I lucked into meeting Randy, a decades-long Portland expert in the art of appraising fine jewelry and metals. He actually showed me on his computer the history and lineage of the pocketwatch I showed him!! He showed me exactly what he was doing to test the karat content of the gold pieces and you could sense the passion for what he does for a living. LaRog, zero insight/money. Jewelry Buyer = $750, passion, and kudos to Randy!

Randy was very professional and explained his rationale when examining each piece of jewelry. He did not put any pressure on me to sell. He made the offer and left it up to me to decide. It was a positive experience.
YOU CAN GET MORE MONEY AT THE PAWN SHOP NEXT DOOR! Try them out before you sell here.

I went to the Jewelry buyer because I was not happy with the price I was offered by the Lending Club where I had been doing business for years scraping gold and silver. I brought in an ounce of 14k scrap gold jewelry to test them out. The guy said two of my pieces were 10k even though they were clearly stamped 14k and had tested them myself before I bought them. They offered me 72%, even less than the Lending Club did. When I told the guy that I could get more for pawning my jewelry, no matter how much I brought them, and would have the chance to rebuy what I pawned within the next 90 days if the price went up enough to be worth it he kicked me out of the store while ranting that whoever would offer me more was doing illegal business and he would not do illegal business.

I am impressed, a friend told me about this company to sell my silver to, they were great, they appraised my silver, gave me a quote that was really fair, I was pleased with the results, it was a pleasant experience, left with my cash in hand.
Quick & Friendly

Austin helped me today at the Jewelry Buyer. He was very friendly and quickly checked my jewelry both for quality and weight. I received much more than I expected as well.They also have some really beautiful jewelry for sale. If I ever need a ring in the future, I'll check here first.
Offered WAY less than I sold for

I knew full and well that I had minted silver and should receive an offer well within 3% of spot (if you don't know what spot is you should find out before selling anything). I played dumb and brought in a portion of what I had to see what kind of offer I would get here. It was significantly lower than spot. When I said I had a bit more, I was told I could get some kind of bulk deal, but it wouldn't be much better. I drove downtown and sold my silver to a buyer in a bank building, who offered me near spot, regardless of how much or how little I had, which is the whole point of silver. In short, if you actually don't know what you have and you're looking for some honest folks to answer questions, don't go here.

I took a "baggie" of old broken jewelry in to Randy and just wanted to take a minute to post this review about the transaction. I was treated with respect, given some valuable information, and basically left knowing I made the best deal in town. I know that if I want to deal with anyone again in regards to selling valuables....it would be with Randy. He is very professional, but humorous and makes the whole transaction a learning experience as well. Some places won't answer your questions about what they are doing and how is it done. He walks you though it all, and taught me the difference of the different types of gold and weights. I just want to THANK him for being so great to work with!!

Brought my mom in after reading the reviews. Randy recomended that we take mom's rings to his brother as he wasnt buying diamonds right now. He was so helpfull took a look to let us know if the diamonds were worth our effort in trying to sell them. He took the time to chat with us and make us feel at ease. I would/will send people down to see him. Might even head back to look for some Christmas Gifts.
made me relax.....
