How does a Jewelry and Loan or Pawnshop work?
Pawnbrokers lend money on items of value ranging from gold and diamond jewelry items tend to retain a value over a period of time which allows the licensed pawnbroker to loan money to the customer based on the collateral. The loan period in California is 4 months. The interest rate and amount will vary based on the amount of the loan and in accordance with laws. The customer will be issued a pawn or loan ticket, that will contain relevant information about the loan and the item used as collateral. Information is not limited to but includes the customers name, address, type of identification provided, a description of the item, amount lent, maturity date, interest rate and amount that must be paid to redeem the item along with other terms and pertinent information including restrictions, obligations.

Why get a loan versus selling your item?
We treat everyone who walks in our store with dignity and respect. We have all at some point or another been in a position where discretion and need are important. We understand, and we dedicate our professionalism to you our client. We relate that at times some jewelry, and watches heirlooms, antique estate rings, have great emotional ties to customers, and that they would like to keep rather them than sell them. A collateral loan allows the customer to return within the contract terms to redeem their loan and get their item back. Whereas if a customer sold an item, it's a NON-redeemable purchase for the store and the customer will NOT have an opportunity to get the item back.
