"I went to Loansum Pawn, Highland Pawn, James and Sons, and Alberts getting quotes on my gold and silver before I came to Angel's. Alex, the owner, has been in the business for years and is as knowledgeable as any professional jeweler; however, I did not feel intimidated or pressured into selling anything. He was honest with me and took the time to explain the diagnostic tests he performed to appraise the quality of my gold and silver. Bottom line: Angel's Cash for Gold gave me the best deal. Before you decide to sell your gold or silver, have Alex take a look!" Ann V.
