What I was dreading as a high pressure pitch turned into a great education about gold and gemstones. My mother passed recently and after sorting out the sentimental/heirloom pieces, we were left an odd collection of jewelry that was from friends and former husbands. Much of it unmarked and very outdated. Dennis spent 90 minuted with me going through each piece and explaining the metal content, quality of the stones and ultimately the value......consign versus sale outright. Items were tested for gold content and he made an extremely fair offer to purchase the items that I agreed to let go of. No pressure, no pitch, just an honest businessman that gave me an education and a good price for items that would have just collected dust. I ended up purchasing a ring for my partner before I left. I will certainly be back and recommend D&K to anyone in the market to buy or sell jewelry.
