My husband has been a Royal Pond fan for many years. He wanted to upgrade my diamond in my wedding ring and I told him that we should go to Royal Pond since my husband is always telling me they have everything. We went there and told them what we were looking for which was about a 1.5 carat diamond. They of course had two of them. My husband paid him $1800.00 cash for a 1.57 carat diamond that I took to get inspected and appraised for $9200.00. The jeweler could not believe what we paid for the diamond, he said that he couldn't even buy diamonds direct for that price. \r\n\r\nWe will be going back there probable in about a year to upgrade my current diamond again.. This time we will go over 2 carat.\r\n\r\nThe key to Royal Pond is one always talk to Himmi (pronounced ""Hi Me"") and always have CASH to flash.... They will sell stuff cheaper if you have cash!!!

Pros: Price and quality purchased a diamond in 2007

Cons: Place is kind of a dump.

I went here with 2 3ct diamond watches that cost well over 1000, I go to the window, some ugly girl looks at my watches like they are trash and this guy asks me how much I want a loan on the for, I needed extra cash so I aid said 300, He told me how bout 50 bucks. 50 bucks, ! and then he said they have so many of these watches and they sell them for 60 dollars, so before I walked out I asked to see some behind the jewelry case and guess what, they were selling for 400.00, he straight lied to me, Dont go here, shady business a and people!

I went in confident that I would get a good offer...WRONG ! I brought in a handheld device, brand new I used it for like a week to try it out I didn't like and so on. I purchased this Item for almost $400 dollars I explained to the dude and described the handheld and told him what it was worth and what I expected to get out of it and he rejected my offer mumbled something to his Co worker, Im guessing the owner and offered me I kid you not, $40 Bucks. I laughed @ their face got my stuff and turned around and walked out...really really bad service...

Found a used worm-drive circular saw here cheap. I had to replace the power cord but works fine. Good deal.

Gee kids, I sure like selling gold at A-Royal Pawn Shop. Anybody else like selling their gold, you know gold jewelry, gold watches, gold cigarette holders gold oh what the heck ever just any old Gold will do at A-Royal Pawn in Chicago Illinois which is in Cook County. It's all about gold gold gold GOLD GOLD GOLD!!!! Did you shop around for the best gold price first? I'll bet you did and for some reason this dingy little shop gives the best deal on Gold in the whole wide gold world! What a GOLDEN opportunity!\r\n\r\nDid you write a glowing golden review the way a bad salesperson would with one selling point immediately following another with a fake negative thrown in occasionally for truthiness? Why that's positively golden! Is it as clear as white gold that some tacky SEO firm got paid too much to associate the key word GOLD with A-Royal Pawn and Chicago and took a big golden shower all over the internet with tacky reviews emulating multiple ethnicities? Wow! That's kind of obnoxious and offensive! Take this with a grain of gold dust kids because it's golden advice. Aside from the occasional turn of phrase nobody WRITES in the ""character"" of their ethnicity.\r\n\r\nI just wanted to find the best pawn shop in Chicago for tools man. A good place to buy tools. All I get is bad sales pitches for A-Pawn, and gold. I wish Google removed people from their listings for this BS. Oh wait. THEY DO.\r\n\r\nOne star for my trouble jagoffs. Not that it even comes close to balancing all the BS you've put out there. And a note to the SEO firm or individual responsible. Hire writers, not salespeople to do your copy and throw in the occasional red herring review that's not about the targeted keywords. That or get into a more honest line of work that doesn't subvert the most important tool on the internet. Have yourself a golden day.

I went into Royal for the first time last week to sell them some gold. I shopped the offer they gave me, however, the amount they gave me what nearly double. I once even sent some gold in through a mail offer, and they ripped me off. I sent the gold in, and had no choice if I wanted to sell it. It was sold. Royal gives you a cash offer on the spot. I definitely recommend Royal. Go see the guy named Randy, I think hes the owner. He treated me like a king.

Pros: VERY honest and a parking lot

Cons: Looks a big dingy, but don't let that bother ya!! Service makes up for it!

I compared A-Royal's prices for my gold and diamonds, and the shop owner gave me a price about 40% higher than any other shop. I felt like I was getting my money's worth. I would go here over all other shops.

Pros: Great price, fair bargain

Sold some gold here. They gave me a good price for the scrap pieces. My mom heard how much I got, and then she gave me some of her gold to sell. Once again, they gave me a great price. They even popped out the stones that they didn't want and gave them back to me. I will go here again when I have gold to sell. They surpassed my expectations in the amount of money they paid me, and they paid in cash. Plus, they have free parking in their lot on the south end of the store. The lot is behind a big yellow sign. If you want to sell gold, I would recommend going to Royal. I will go here again when I have gold to sell.

Royal has been my little secret for a while. I come here because I love quality jewelry, but hate to pay retail. They always have something new. If you're a shopaholic like me, you know that an ever-changing selection is like catnip to a Cornish Rex. \r\n\r\nThe other thing I like about Royal is that when I get tired of a ring, bracelet or necklace, they buy it back from me. Because of that, I am always wearing new bling! It makes my girlfriends jealous! \r\n\r\nRoyal has free parking. That is a very good thing in the Loop. \r\n\r\nI will warn you, it's not Bloomies, and sometimes some ""interesting"" people walk in there. But, in many ways, to me, it's better than Bloomies. I get great deals on the jewelry I love and I am treated as if I were a rock star. It makes me feel sort of hip and edgy. And, with my mostly mundane life of work, eat and sleep (in that order), I'll take as much hip and edgy as I can get! It's my ""Royal"" adventure in this great city. Highly recommended!

Pros: Great prices on high quality jewelry, free parking, fun

Went to their Clark St store to see what they would give me for my scrap gold. I got a good price and they did pay cash, as claimed. I took more gold there on a second occasion, and got a great price once again. The place has a lot of flavor. I will go back when I have more gold to sell. I also bought a camera there. It was a medium format pro model still in the box, and I got it for less than half of what I would have paid on ebay.
