Hello everyone, Ken Bowers here, the proud owner of The Quarter Smith. Today, I’d like to take you on a journey through the fascinating world of precious metals – gold, silver, platinum, and palladium – a journey that our establishment in New Orleans has been on since 1978.
When you first step into The Quarter Smith, you’re not just entering a store; you’re stepping into a realm where each piece of jewelry, each coin, and each silverware set has its own unique story. Our passion for precious metals is deeply rooted in understanding their intrinsic and historical value, which goes far beyond their market price.
A Legacy Built on Trust and Expertise
For over four decades, The Quarter Smith has been more than just a buyer of gold, diamonds, watches, and precious metals. We are custodians of history and craftsmanship. From the intricate designs of estate jewelry to the time-honored value of old coins, every item we handle is treated with the utmost respect and care.
Handling precious metals is an art, and it requires a keen eye and a deep understanding of their various aspects. Gold, with its timeless allure, has always been a symbol of wealth and beauty. Silver, known for its reflective luster, is not just a metal but a piece of history molded into beautiful objects. Platinum and palladium, with their rarity and unique properties, offer a different kind of charm and challenge.
Diverse Services Tailored to Your Needs
At The Quarter Smith, our services are as diverse as the items we handle. Whether you’re looking to sell a single gold ring, a collection of Rolex watches, or an entire estate of fine jewelry, you’ll find that our approach is tailored to meet your specific needs. We also specialize in buying old coins, sterling silver flatware, and tea sets, recognizing the historical significance and craftsmanship in each piece.
Our expertise in precious metals is not just limited to buying. We also offer insights into the care, maintenance, and valuation of these items, ensuring that our clients are well-informed and confident in their transactions with us.
A Safe and Secure Experience
We understand that dealing in precious metals and fine jewelry requires not just expertise but also a high level of trust and security. That’s why we have created a process that is safe, secure, and convenient for all our clients. We offer the option to meet at a bank, either yours or ours, to ensure that you feel comfortable and secure during the transaction.
More Than Just a Business
What makes The Quarter Smith special is the relationship we build with our clients. Many of them are repeat customers, or come to us through referrals, which speaks volumes about the trust and confidence they have in our services. We see our clients as part of the extended Quarter Smith family, and their satisfaction is our highest priority.
