FIRST TIME SELLER?
If you want to ensure you'll get the HIGHEST price on your valuables,
these TIPS won't let you down:
1) NEVER just drop off your jewelry. Always have your items separated by karat and weighed in front of you.
2) Even if you want to get a quote from the most reputable jeweler you know, make us your 2nd stop and you'll see the difference - you'll be amazed!
3) If you walk into an establishment and get an UNEASY FEELING, trust your instincts and LEAVE.
4) NEVER sell your valuables to a KIOSK, ROAD SHOW, or any other TEMPORARY, FLY BY NIGHT OPERATION.
5) Watch out for gimmicks - if someone says they are paying 20% higher - just remember - they are likely paying 50% lower to begin with.
6) AND PLEASE, NEVER mail in your jewelry!
We hope you sell to us, but even if you don't, these TIPS won't let you down!

Sometimes, "If you build it, they will come" is not a bad business model.
It has certainly worked for JS Gold and Coin, opening in 2008 with a single store in Kenwood as a buyer of gold, silver, platinum, jewelry, rare coins, estate items and vintage paper currency.
"We have been busy ever since the doors opened," says owner Nancy Hendricks, who purchased the business from Jon Saylor, who remains as chief numismatist.
Obviously, the astronomical rise in gold prices has spurred people to cash in. But Hendricks says this is not a business riding a bubble, since a significant part of their activity comes from coin collectors. "The rare coin business is on fire right now," says Saylor. "There has been a renewed interest in coin collecting."
And Hendricks points out, even if the gold bubble were to burst, the price would probably still be left at a historically high mark.
The key to their success is volume. From the very beginning, the plan was to have four stores covering each area of town. They are on track, opening stores in West Chester and Florence last year and Anderson this spring.
"We set up to be the only volume buyer in the Tristate," says Saylor. "High volume lets us pay higher prices. And that feeds word of mouth."
