I took in quite a varied assortment of jewelry a few months ago. I had been selling gold a few pieces at a time on a couple different websites. I had done quite alot of research and thus knew what a fair market price was for gold at that time. I had some vintage estate costume pieces as well as 14 and 18kt. gold rings with stones. I had quite a few pieces in all. I would say 20-30 pieces of jewelry total.Perry offered me 400.00 for ALL of it. Well, I knew the melt down weight of a few of the rings was worth at least that or more. He didn't weigh anything..just made the offer. When he finally did weigh the rings he turned his back to me. Told me I wouldn't get anything for much of it. when I told him that I had sold gold online and what I was getting for it per gram things changed. Long story short, he offered me 600.00 for 4 of the rings and a few pieces of vintage costume jewelry. I accepted and took the rest of it back. I subsequently placed a few of the pieces (that Perry had said weren't worth anything) on consignment in another store and sold them for over 1800.00.....Be advised...do your homework!
UPDATE: The day after leaving this review I went to their website and found one of my rings listed for sale. It was a ring that Perry had told me was "not of any particular value"..."the stone was nothing special" and his offer was for the "melt down value". It is listed as an Imperial Topaz for 3825.00.... I am still trying to decide what will be my next step.......
