You might get a better deal if you’re willing to trade up your jewelry. Ron Samuelson, of Samuelson’s Diamonds in Baltimore, says he’s more generous with store credit than cash: “I’m cultivating a customer.” If you’re interested in a swap, visit a jeweler who sells pieces you’d like to wear. And when someone admires your new ring, you can say, “Oh, it’s just a little something they gave me when I turned in my recycling.”
Samuelson’s Diamonds continues to be Baltimore’s top gold buyer, offering both excellent prices and trade-ins to our customers, locally and across Maryland.
