not a place to sell your gold/silver.
Do not go here to sell your gold or silver. I went in with two very old and expensive sets of silver flatware (not plated). I was offered $1000.00 for both sets. I thought that was low so I asked the rate he was buying at and all he would tell me is that it is a small percentage over what he will have to pay the refiner (and he was going to charge me shipping to the refiner also), I was not comfortable with him and decided to refuse his offer when he told me, "we are not buying sentiments here". I took the same two sets to THE JEWELRY BOX and was given $4000.00!! It is so sad that there are so many people that take advantage of others when they are vulnerable.
The most beautiful collection of gems in the OC- or anywhere.
I had the most wonderful afternoon browsing at eye-popping gems & jewels at Joseph's! The pieces are truly breathtaking. Their staff was friendly and knowledgable (not pushy at all). While I was looking they checked my ring and cleaned it (boy did it shine and sparkle afterwards!). I will most definatly be back! I'm dreaming of a big new diamond ring, or watch, emerald earrings, or pearls........(a girl can dream)! I also liked that they had unique silver, artisan and estate jewelery.
