Frequently asked questions
What is a pawn?To receive pawn loan, a customer and Gold market finance will agree on an item’s value, and the item will be left with us as collateral in exchange for a short-term cash loan. Simply put, leave your item with us until it’s time to come back, repay the loan, and collect your item.
What is the difference between a pawn/loan and selling your item?Pawning an item means that you are using your item as collateral to secure a loan. After appraising the value of your item, the pawnbroker will work with you to determine the loan amount. Selling an item at a pawnshop is simply that: selling an item to the pawnbroker.
What items do we accept?We accept all gold jewelry, watches and branded watches (e.g. Rolex, Hublot, Breitling). We operate with 10-karat, 14-karat, 18-karat, 22-karat and 24-karat gold.
How do you determine the value of jewelry?The value of jewelry is determined by assessing the salability of the piece, the gold content using current market gold value, and using several wholesale/retail websites to determine the value of the stones. All this information is then compiled to offer a fair market price.
