Over the last decade, the precious metal industry has grown according to demand and necessity of people and fashion. One of the biggest factors of growth being the reaches of the internet, online stores, and consumers’ ability to make purchases from the security and luxury of their own home.
Being that we offer our services and great products via internet, along with our three physical stores, we pride ourselves in saying that our reputation is second to none.
Smart shoppers know that awareness of scams plays a major role when it comes to online safety. That’s why we advise, that prior to any online transaction, you do thorough research regarding their legitimacy and guarantees of the company in question. Please read the following Q&As for more information.
Is the company under any governmental agency regulation, for instance the Department of Consumer Affairs? Or are you just another online store with a post office mail box with no physical location?
There are so many questionable companies out there that seem to have the best offer for you, they have a catchy name, an 800 number and a P.O. Box. Nevertheless, federal laws require precious metal traders to observe the USA PATRIOT ACT. So every company must have a physical address. To verify our locations simply search us in Google Maps or our Locations page.
Is your business affiliated with any governing organizations?
We are proud to say we are part of the JVC – Jewelers Vigilance Committee.
