Here is a quick summary of our most popular selling and pawn loan categories:


Diamonds can be very valuable depending on some characteristics the diamonds may have. The shape, cut, color, clarity, and carat weight all play an important role in the overall value of your diamond.  Learn more.


GOLD is usually stamped 10K, 14K, 18K. Gold is bought by the pennyweight (dwt). There are 18.2 dwt to the avoir oz. or 20 to the troy oz. Dental gold must be yellow and is usually around 16k. Items stamped 1/20 12k – H.G.E. are gold plated and worth very little.  We test all gold, marked and unmarked.  If there are diamonds or other precious stones in the item brought in, we will add their value to the weight of the gold.  Learn more.


Items must be stamped “Sterling” .925 – .900 – .800. Many items stamped Sterling are weighted with plaster (i.e. candlesticks) and must be broken to get the true weight. Knives which have sterling handles are figured at 1/3 – 1/2 oz. each.


Many common gold watches made in the last 20 to 30 years are probably worth their weight in gold only, but All Island Jewelry & Loan will examine the watch to determine if it has any value above melt. Hunting case watches (flip Covers) that are working or repairable are valuable. Repeater watches which chime the time are very valuable – often worth over $1,000. Old silver watches are also worth a premium. Particularly valuable watches are Rolex; Cartier; Tiffany; Omega; Patek; Phillipe; Piaget.
