I chose Leo Hamel because of their reputation. I'm retired Law Enforcement, so I called San Diego P.D. And they recommend your business as in their opinion Leo Hamel is the most honest jewelry store in the area. And they were correct.

Thank you Henry!! Came in with what I thought was maybe $500 worth of jewelry and surprise to me it was more that $3,000. Very happy customer.

Why Sell to Leo's?
At Leo Hamel’s, we pay the most because our expert buyers evaluate your valuables for their entirety, not just for their weight in gold. We then refurbish and recondition them to like-new to resell in our showroom - not simply to melt down. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are masters in their field, and they consult with a global network of experts to make sure you are getting the best possible price. You know you can trust us because we are family owned and operated, and have been in business for over 30 years.
You can also trade your valuables towards a new purchase! They may be worth more than you think! Contact us for more information about selling your valuables.
All transactions are confidential and secure. We understand that selling your valuables can be an emotional experience so we don’t pressure you while you make your decision. Our buying offices are safe, secure, and private, with professional graduate gemologists on hand to assist you. Don’t hesitate to contact us before you drop by!
