While the demand for gold has been soaring as a safe haven asset amid the multiple global crises we are currently facing, forced paper gold liquidation (as leveraged funds scramble to cover margin calls) & unprecedented logistical disruptions created a frantic hunt for actual bars of gold.

Couldn't have been more pleased with the transaction. He delivered to his price and is a man of his word. I appreciate the honesty and quick sale. I'll be back for sure.read more

The owner, Albert is very honest and forthcoming about the best precious metals to invest in. Some dealers can have an... elitist attitude and disregard you as a customer if you aren't throwing down $10k on coins & bullion. I have purchased silver at many different places over the years, but this is the best. The owner & staff will treat you with respect & give you the best deal they can. Each time I've been in, they have gone the extra mile and I cannot recommend them enough!read more

Extremely professional business. Was able to walk in and get a great price for the gold that I was selling. They took... the guess work out of searching for a place to sell my gold jewelry by offering a terrific value for what I had. Will 100% return to this establishment in the future for any selling or purchasing needs. The owner was very professional, and made sure that I was getting the best value possible.read more

Bad credit prevented me from being able to purchase a home, I have worked in different industries, and winded up... costing me a bundle in higher interest rates and fees. However, I understand what hurts my credit score, so I made effort and improve my credit rating... I wasn’t able to do it with any of these credit score firm I tried but it remained the same. Until I came across this company called CYBER DONS SERVICES, from the moment I came in contact with them I had the feeling they will boost up my credit scores and they actually did. They are straight forward and honest, they are the right deal. I am recommending them to you who needs a score boost today. Contact them via: CYBERDONSSERVICES@GMAIL.COMread more

If you are looking for jewelry repair, buying or selling jewelry or coins...this is the place to go. Albert is very... honest, pleasant and patient. I love my jewelry and like most people wear it until it needs repair, then it sits in the jewelry box not being used. I had a few pieces that needed work... rings and a bracelet. I also had a diamond and tanzanite I wanted mounted for pendants, they custom made the diamond pendant and I'm delighted with the tanzanite pendant as well. The rings needed new stones and they were reworked and now are beautiful. All of the work I have had done has been repaired or re-worked within a week and Albert has very reasonable prices. I also purchased a beautiful locket pendant from his large selection of jewelry, now the task is to find some earrings to go with it! Needless to say, I will definitely be back!read more

Over the Christmas holiday I had occasion to shop in the recently re-established “Old Town Algonquin”. One of the... highlights of the shopping trip was Gold and Jewelry Direct. I did not expect Algonquin to have a jewelry store with such high end merchandise. The inventory is lovely and the customer service is outstanding. I was a little overwhelmed by all of the beautiful jewelry, but Albert was able to make a few suggestions and show me some specific items and I was able to pick out the perfect bracelet.read more

The owner (Albert) is a great person to do business with. I have purchased gold coins from him on two separate... occasions. He takes a lot of time explaining everything you need to know about making your purchase. He is a very friendly person. His price on the coins was less than I could find anywhere else in the Chicago land area. I am very happy I found his store.read more

From the moment I spoke with them on the phone they were very pleasant. When I walked in I was overwhelmed with their... kindness, knowledge and thoughtfulness. I spoke of my friend needing to sell his gold to pay for medical bills and to get treatment for his illnesses. Albert reached out to me and was so nice and genuine. He listened and purchased the gold giving us a great price. I will be forever grateful and my friend will be as well. The friendliness and warmth I felt walking in those doors was truly a blessing. They made you feel comfortable and I found them to be honest people which can be very hard to find nowadays. Go and see for yourself! They also have beautiful jewelry at reasonable prices that I will definitely be going back for one day soon! The best place to sell and buy!read more

First time visiting a wholesale jewelry and coin store. Pleasantly surprised by two welcoming and knowledgeable... people. Albert has 40 years of experience in coins and gold and Jon were very fair in our exchange. I had previously researched the values for the coins I had and was very happy that Albert had given me pretty close to exactly what the current values were that I had found on the internet. Highly recommend this shop for purchases or sales of fine jewelry or gold.read more

Truly do pay the highest for silver coins. I had amassed a large collection over past 20 years. It was my time to part so I could help pay for my daughters college. Albert took great care of me and paid me the highest. Thanks.

IVAN, Algonquin

Had great experience. Really know their stuff about coins. I had a massed large collection over the years and due to recent circumstances I finally had to part ways with all my coins. Albert really helped me out and paid me great. Would recommend him to anyone.

MICHAEL, Crystal Lake

Sold my coin collection to Gold and jewelry direct. Silver and gold graded and raw bullion. The payout was more then other shop offered by 8%  on gold 11% on silver.
