Thought the young man I spoke to was terribly rude. I took in my scrap gold & he told me that the 22 karat piece I had wasn't gold at all & he couldn't be bothered testing it. I'll never go there again!

I love Esterman Estate Jewelers! I fancy myself a nouveau collector; however, I am not nieve enough to think I am able to make a purchase on my own limited experience, without having the item checked out at Esternan's afterwards. I was able to save myself thousands of dollars by consulting with Arnie, the Certified Appraiser at Esterman, and returning the items that didn't live up to the weight, clarity and value they were sold as. Kudos to Esterman.

When it came to older possessions, Arnie was also the man for the job for these pieces as well. I was embarrassed that some of my collection had been mistreated, i.e., I wasn't wearing them, they needed polishing and they needed to be shown off. I was a bad "Mommy"!

After three visits with Arnie, and all the watches, rings, bracelets, necklaces and other trinkets have been pulled out of the jewelry boxes, brown paper bags and tissue paper I am proud to say that I have a collection any "Sophisiticated Lady", or "Nouveau Collector" would be proud to own, and wear.

Thank you Arnie! Thank you Esterman Estate Jewelers!

I also took some scrap gold jewelry (all 14k or higher) to Esterman's and they offered 30% lower than my lowest offer from other jewelers. In addition, they offered me 150% lower than any other offer on a 24K gold watch I wanted to sell. You can get more than that at a pawn shop in the hood.

I don't know what David W is talking about, I have brought scrap gold to Esterman's many times and received excellent value for all my 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, and 24K pieces. They were very friendly and even let me watch them test the gold in their back room! I think the management is outstanding and the sales staff are true professionals. My family has shopped there for many years and will continue do do so for a long long time. Estermans is the best jewelry store in the MD/DC area!

My family has shopped here for over 25 years. That will not happen again. Under new management for about 13 years, the quality (and honesty) have suffered. I was offered a ridiculously low amount for gold jewelry I was selling. They offered less than 1/2 of the scrap value for nice, clean (some nearly new) pieces they could sell for at least 3-4 times what they offered. I was offered nearly double the Esterman's offer at a pawn shop. Two other stores tested my pieces and one large bracelet that Esterman's claimed they tested at 14k was really 18k. At 55 grams, that is a difference of $270 in scrap gold value. They tried to cheat me and make a 100 - 300% profit. Avoid this store!!!!
