A quarter century in my life I’ve spent to work in the Diamond, Gold and Jewelry industry. Pangea’s clients can benefit from my knowledge and experience. I am blessed when I see people leaving our store with smile in their face.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace, so we make sure to bring latest one. I work hard everyday to keep the tech systems running smoothly for everyone. In addition, it feels great to be around such good coworkers as Pangea has.

Gave me an amazing price for
some gold jewelry I was selling.
More than I had expected! I had
gone elsewhere to see how much
they would give me for all of the
jewelry I had, the owner gave me
more than double what other
people had offered! Overall my
experience was great and I would
highly recommend this place to
anyone.

Bought replacement for my wife
who was heart broken when
robbed at the beach this summer
of a watch with great sentimental
value. The team at Pangea
were helpful, professional, prompt
and honest at all times and my
wife is over the moon. Watch was
exactly as described.



Dave Smith



David is super to work with- very
knowledgable and his prices are
fair. He went out of his way for me
in every regard. I look forward to
working with him again in the
future.




Alexandra Eitel

I stopped in today to sell a small
amount of gold jewelry that I had.
The store was friendly and
welcoming and the owner is very
fair and helpful. He was very polite
when informing me that I had put
in silver jewelry by mistake. I got
a great price and was glad for the
quick and easy transaction. Highly
recommended, thank you!


Caitlin Origoni

I bought my fiancee's vintage
engagement ring here and the
service was excellent. They do all
their work in house so its very
convenient. Love the shop and
David is a stand up guy who really
seems to care about his pieces. I'm
going back soon to get my wedding
band.



John Closterman

Visited this past week for an
appraisal on some coins. David
was honest and straightforward
in telling us about what we had.
He also offered sensible ideas for
collecting and investing. I would
highly recommend this shop for
not only appraisals and coin
collecting, but they have a variety
of other estate items for sale. We
will definitely be back!
