I had very little knowledge of gems and precious metals when I inherited some. I went to Paul because of his great online reviews and they weren't wrong as I did two different transactions with him. He is very friendly, straight forward & honest. I had no idea the price of gold had increased the week before I went to him for the second time, but he informed me of my fortunate timing per the market. He will be my first call for future transactions and he should be your first call if you are looking for a solid appraiser and/or buyer.

Paul is fantastic. Highly recommend! He was quick to help set up an appointment and walked me through the whole process of appraising a diamond ring. Had no issues submitting his appraisal to insurance and will certainly be back with other items.

I went to Paul a couple of weeks ago with some family heirlooms and items that had been left to me in a family members estate. He was very honest and fair. He gave me a price I felt comfortable with on a few of the items and it was seamless and easy. I Will definitely be bringing additional items back to Paul and referring anyone I know to him. A+ rated.

Let me start off with Paul... Great guy! I was shopping around the westside for pricing on jewelry I inherited and came across Paul's new location in Brentwood. He's a real professional and was able to sort through everything I had quickly and accurately telling me what was real and valuable and what was costume jewelry. He gave me an honest assessment and pricing that was fair, and since I had already shopped around I decided to sell on the spot. With all of his knowledge and honesty I cant recommend him enough!

Paul provided an appraisal for me for insurance purposes. He was easy to work with and his appraisal was accepted by my insurance company without any issues.

I took some gold jewelry and silverware I no longer wanted to Paul and found he gave a good estimate and price. He shared a lot of information through the process and answered all of my questions. Highly recommend.

Great experience: I took family heirlooms to Paul having some idea of their value, he was very honest and upfront about all the pieces. Prior to selling, I had asked another jeweler the value of a watch and Paul's quote was almost double! I have already referred others!

I found my experience with Pacific Jewelry & Watches to be excellent. It's a convenient west LA location and the appraiser, Paul, was really professional. I came in with 2 watches to get updated replacement values for insurance purposes and his assessment process was thorough. The appraisal report for insurance came back in 24 hours. Overall, a no fuss and professional experience. Would use his services again.

My husband and I went this place several weeks ago. We had visited two different gold buyers before so we had an idea how much our jewelry worth..... (I was looking for the jeweler that charge only 10% or so, but they charged 15~30% depends on the jewelry, so I was thinking that I should take them to Japan where I am from, or sell at eBay so this place was our last jewelry buyer we tried!) well, Paul (didn't know his name though) was very honest, and let us know eBay would charge 15% for jewelry and gold....and he charges about 10%. (i did the math, actually he charges a bit more....maybe 12~13%? it depends...) My husband was amazed and happy that we came in and sold his mother' jewelry and coin to him. I also sold some of my jewelries and thinking about coming back to Paul after I compare it is sold in Japan lol. I highly recommend this place to sell your gold jewelry! He buys 14 carat and 10 carat gold not only 18K gold;)
