A&F Pawn has been here for a very long time and has an excellent reputation. The whole we pay more is a bit of a fallacy. We pay according if the piece is sellable and what gold is trading for that day. Our competitors pay based on criteria unknown but some inconsistencies have definitely been brought to our attention. Our Pawn Loans are fair and straight forward. No gimmicks, no fancy marketing, and no hidden fees. We focus on making sure you get what you need and are happy when you leave. Gold is currency and is the leading item we purchase and use for a Pawn loan. Gold can be a good investment depending on some timing but can always be turned into cash quickly. Gold also has intrinsic value meaning it will hold its value no matter what the other currency markets are doing. Interest rates have more of an effect on prices over the long haul. Is gold a better investment than crypto currency? No not at this juncture but it is accessible for most of us and can be easily turned into cash if something comes up. There are many types of gold we work with on the daily. Heavy gold chains and bracelets are much more concerning due to the high payouts and possibility of being fake. Gold earrings are always in high demand and we will pay aggressive for 10K and 14K as long as we can resell them. If they are damaged then the payout will be much lower. We work with broken Gold, vintage Gold Jewelry and modern designs like Box Franco, Cuban link, Figaro, Gucci and many others. there are also many types of Gold like white, yellow and rose gold. They also make black hills gold which you don't see as much these days but once I come across it. Now another important point is the best type is stamped Italy due to their standards. Everywhere else it is usually under karat. The shiniest and most beautiful pieces I have come across are from Asia and they were 22Kt. I just could not make the deal due to he was asking over spot. So to wrap this up we buy and loan on Gold in just about in any form. If we can test it, we can take it. If you need some help do not hesitate to give us a call.
