With jewelry as collateral for a Scottsdale pawn loan, our jewelry appraisal experts test the precious metals and diamonds to determine their worth. The diamond testing includes a visual inspection using a jeweler’s loupe, as well as weighing the item, sizing (determining carat weight) all stones, and noting the cut/color/clarity of each—also known as the 4 Cs. In addition, we test the metal using a special acid which determines the karat of gold. While providing us (and our clients) the answers needed for a successful transaction, this process is entirely safe for your jewelry. This is done to ensure a clean test so there are no false readings on your item that may detract from what we can loan you.
On average, we loan more on jewelry, diamonds, and gold than our competition!
