Not many places left who do business like that! Albert is very friendly and will take time to answer every question you... have to make you feel comfortable to be his customer.

I appreciated his honestly, he is definitely very trustworthy.With no doubt, I will come back and recommend this place to others to visit.Thank you so much for your hard work and pleasant experience, Albert and John!read more

We have been to Gold and Jewelry Direct quite a few times. Each time we received excellent and friendly service. We... have sold gold and have purchased diamond stud earrings as well as had rings enlarged and had those tiny balls installed in them so the rings won't twist on the finger. Albert gave us some great ideas and each time we walked away happy and delighted with our purchases, I think you will too!read more

I called ahead to ensure the shop wanted to purchase some silver coins from me. The owner was pleasant and gave me a... great price. I drove over in the afternoon and we did sale. 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, Algonuin

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.

________________________________

Good Experience. We had a bag full of silver coins from an estate sale. Unsure of what it might be worth, we selected this shop because of the reviews and my phone conversation with Peter. He was patient, knowledgeable with no pressure to sell. It was a lot to sort through. He took his time explaining which coins had silver content and which coins did not. Turns out we didn’t have many coins with silver, but In return for his patience/time I’m paying it forward and giving him 5 stars. Thanks Peter!

Loved these guys. Down to earth, polite and fair. On a recommendation from a neighbor we brought in a gold bracelet and diamond ring to sell. I was happy with price they offered. Although the closer for me was the low pressure climate to sell. It was nice to deal with someone sincere. Agree with the comment below and would totally recommend. Thumbs up!

Love this place! I’ve purchased a few diamond pieces for myself over the past years. And I wanted to do something custom with my own ideas. So I came in to ask them. Albert and Jon were great! They talked to me for a while and got every detail down I wanted on my ring. I came back few weeks later when it was done and it was beyond great! I love it. I have never been this happy! Thank you guys so much!

If you are looking to buy or sell jewelry, Gold & Jewelry Direct is the only place to go. I have been collecting jewelry for 20 years and I often sell older pieces to upgrade to new and better pieces so I know my stuff when it comes to jewelry. I only wish I knew about Gold & Jewelry Direct when I first started collecting. Bottom line, you get the best prices from these guys whether you are buying or selling. One recent purchase I made at Gold & Jewelry Direct was appraised by a gemologist at 12 times my purchase price !!!!! These guys are honest and I trust them and they will be the only place I go from now on.

Pay top dollar for gold. I’ve been selling gold to them for past couple years. I sold my wife’s and mine broken and unused jewelry. I also buy jewelry from auctions and estates and sell it all to Gold & Jewelry Direct. They are always paying me the best, are very pleasant and are open very long hours so no matter when I have to sell, I can. Thanks!!

I needed to unload a diamond engagement ring and wedding band, and have been trying to sell on my own for a couple years. I called Gold & Jewelry Direct to see if they would want to buy it. I got more than I expected for the wedding band, I also brought in a necklace that I didn’t think they would be interested in and they gave me a good price for that too. The whole process only took like 20 mins! I would definitely sell to them again. Very professional and reputable place. Thanks!

Albert was wonderful to work with! He was knowledgeable and provided “just enough” guidance to help us decide on the perfect diamond ring. After months of being unsuccessful in our search for the perfect one, Albert was able to show us exactly what we were looking for and make a decision in ONE DAY! He picked up on my style within minutes of meeting and was very responsive to all of our questions concerning budget.

I have shopped in a lot of fine jewelery stores in a lot of different states over the years and I have never had a better experience. From the moment I step foot in the front door I have always been treated as though I was the only customer there, regardless of how much I spend. I would put them among the best of the best anywhere. They are the most knowledgable and have a Superior product. I have never found them to be rude, distracted or overpriced. If you want the best and something to be truely proud of then buy it from them.

I came to Gold & Jewerly Direct wanting a personal experience without the added stress of commercial retail jewerly salesman pressuring me to make hasty decisions regarding buying my fiance’s engagement ring. They took her time finding the perfect stone for me at the price I needed. They refused to allow sub-par diamonds to even be considered in presenting to their clients. They educated me on diamond grading and why prices Can vary so drastically.

Put simply Gold & Jewerly Direct made buying an engagement ring more relaxed than I thought possible. I am confident that I gave my Fiance the very best ring I could get. I strongly recommend Gold & Jewerly Direct for any tape of jewerly, but espacially diamonds.
