This store is special for me because I have bought my first collection here. The items are excellent for me and I am not going anywhere else.

I will not be recommending this store to anyone. maybe i should buy from you GIA stones at those prices i would be a MILLIONAIRE! i sent in a SEMI TRANSPARENT GIA UNHEATED RUBY 3 CARATS SIZE! AND 1.4 CARAT SIZE 3 STONE RING. THEY OFFERED ME 400 USD LIKE THE OTHER GENTLEMEN WHO HAD 50,000 USD IN GEMSTONES! EXACT SAME B.S. SELL TO BONHAMS THEY CAN GET FAIR PRICES YOU JUST NEED TO WAIT AROUND.

I had a great experience selling some old jewelry and a few coins from the early 1900's. I had gone to two other places before taking the stuff to Porcello and they actually offered me a bit more. I didn't just want this stuff melted down (it was still real nice) and felt that they would actually sell it. I dealt with Marc who was real professional. Do your research and then go to Porcello. Worth the trip.

When you walk in you are treated professionally, but when you sit down to sell gold or jewelry everything changes and you feel like you are dealing with the worst of used car salesmen. This may depend upon who you are working with. They are slick and you don't even realize you are being ripped off. When weighing gold, they don't let you see the scale or tell you what they are paying for your gold. And if you go to sell on a weekend, they give you far less than the going rate by using the justification that it might go down on Monday! Well, it might go up, too!.

They will belittle and criticize every piece of jewelry you try to sell them ... they'll say, "We have a dozen of those in the back and we can't even sell them", or "This style is no longer popular". Or "People don't buy this kind of diamond anymore". Beware. They make you feel like your pieces that are worth thousands of dollars are worth hundreds of dollars.

Heard about Porcellos through Yahoo! Answers. Thanks so much for that forum and the great advice I received. They are just a top notch company to do business with. The time it took us to send the items to them ??until the time we received a check was 10 days. They called as soon as they had a chance to take a look at everything and made us an offer we couldn??t refuse. Easier and less dangerous than trying to sell it through the paper or an online site.

I am so excited I went to Porcello's! I inherited quite a bit of jewelry from my great aunt and most of it was not my style at all. I definitely wanted to sell some of it but there were a couple of pieces that I wanted to have redesigned. I've never sold jewelry before and was nervous thinking I'd be low balled. I'm happy to report that was not the case at all. Porcello's was very fair and discussed each piece with me in detail. They took quite a bit of time with me redesigning the two pieces that I wanted to keep and I am thrilled with the results. I still have the memory but now have something a bit more contemporary that fits my style. This was really a positive experience.

This is THE place to go for one of a kind heirloom rings. I am recently engaged and my fiance and I decided to venture in to Porcello after finding them on a google search for estate jewelry. They had a great selected. Their staff really took the time to explain each piece we were interested in and weren't at all pushy. When we decided we wanted to look around a little more, they thanked us for coming in and didn't make us feel pressured at all. Apparently they know their merchandise for, within a week, we were back to purchase a beautiful ring. They are also making me a ring to match the style and is very reasonably priced. We are both very happy with the service and selection. We recommend highly!

I visited Porcello's in Bellevue to get my wife a bracelet for our anniversary. Admittedly, I was a little nervous and intimidated - it??d been years since I was last in a jewelry store and I??d figured getting the right engagement ring had just been pure luck. It was wonderful to have my anxiety completely blown away by a staff that - dare I say - cared about me as a customer. They knew my budget and took the time to work with me to find a bracelet that my wife absolutely loved. I hope my wife isn??t expecting this kind of purchase regularly, but I know that next time, I will darn sure be shopping at Porcello??s.

Be-ware, first comes the friendly intro's trained to make you feel all warm and fuzzy, then they start, like a used car, they find all that is wrong with your jewelry, and proceed to devalue. It doesn't matter if your piece is worth

I just bought a beautiful bracelet for my niece who is making her first communion at the end of the month. It's going to be her first "real" piece of jewelry and I'm so excited to give it to her! Porcello's was so nice and easy to work with. I had no idea what to buy and they worked with me to show me several options that were age appropriate and within the budget I had. Everyone there is smiling and friendly. Very nice experience. Can't wait to go back for a little something for me... LOL

Recently engaged to the girl I should have married in my 20's. She wanted an "heirloom" type ring which was a bit challenging. A couple of friends told us about Porcello. We went in with high hopes and were extremely satisfied with their service. The sales people are knowledgeable, friendly and not pushy. When we could not find the exact ring, their worked with us to design a ring that was perfect - and a ring for me to match. Top notch!

This place is the BIGGEST RIP OFF!!! Scam artists!! I took my $8K ring in to sell and they offered me $350.00. The salesman Shirly or some girly name like that went through all the tactics. "oh this ring has huge flaws", "its not really a 1ct it's actually a 1/2 ct", "you were ripped off when you bought it", "diamonds are worthless and I can't even give yellow gold away". Oh really??? Then why are all your cabinets full of yellow gold and diamond jewelry? They will tell you ANYTHING to buy your jewelry at a low price. They are car salesmen who can't be trusted. Porcello was a huge dissapointment! I will NEVER go there again and I would NOT recommend this place to anyone!

If you are selling gold, platinum, watches, or any other type of jewelry you must go to Porcello Jewelry. I have seen their business practices and am blown away by their professionalism and the amount of money offered for my gold. Mark is a class act, and it was a pleasure to meet an owner as down to earth as him.

From growing up in the area, I knew Porcello had a good solid reputation. Things sure have changed!

I brought in several pieces and one was a white 18k gold Cartier ring with black and white diamonds in a pave setting. I have moved a few times and the original certificate for this ring has been lost. The "appraiser" took one quick look and said- It's a fake; a good one, but a fake. I was stunned. Even though I wasn't there when it was purchased, I was 100% certain it was genuine. Without the certificate I had no proof.

He went on to say the Cartier 'always' stamps their logo inside the pieces and this one was engraved (and not very well, he claimed). An older gentleman also looked at it but couldn't say one way or the other if it was real or fake.

I was also insulted by the review of the other items I brought in. They seemed to be genuinely surprised that my Jaeger-LeCoultre 18k gold watch was real. They made me feel like I brought in a bunch of paste with one real gem in the mix.

I left the store rather upset and went directly to Cartier which is located in Neiman Marcus, right down the street. The jeweler there took one look, assured me it was real and explained the reason it was engraved, not stamped, was because it was part of the Haute line (limited edition). If an item is produced in higher quantities, it is part of the Bijoux line and is stamped.

I was told it would cost $100 to verify the serial number and reissue the certificate. I agreed to do it and after much digging they verified it but the price was $300. Too much for me today, but I do have a return receipt from Cartier which will suffice for now.

What a disappointment on so many levels. Don't waste your time.

I came in because of their online ads for buying jewelry. The owner should be embarrassed by the used car salesman he employs. I took quite a bit of scrap there, we had weighed it and accounted for the carat and I was shocked by the low price he offered. Ended up taking it to a coin shop in Lynnwood and was offered twice the amount. Porcello should be ashamed!

Long story but had 1 3/4 carat diamond stud that I didn't need so took it to Porcello Jewelers because of an advertisement I saw. A person named Will helped me in which he started off by saying my diamond had flaws, bad color, etc and then offered me $220. Ok, what Will did not know was that I lost my other stud, insurance paid $3000 for the replacement of the stud and the stud was bought at Ben Bridge. All I can say is stay away from this jewelers unless you want to be ripped off. Or maybe Will just didn't know a good diamond when he saw one!!!

Went to sell an old gold ring. 1st went to Bellevue Rare Coins, offered $70. Owed it to myself to check others, so I stopped at Porcello's. Will? examined the ring, claimed it was 14 carat as he tossed it on to the scale. Within an instant he offers $40 to which I chuckled, thanked him for the confirmation. I told him I'm back to Bellevue Rare Coins. He asked how much they offered. I answered. He scoffed "They're crazy!". His demeanor was that of a used car salesman - clearly looking to rip me off. Wouldn't be able to trust them with anything as a result - buying or selling.

I recently went through a messy divorce, and wanted to get rid of all the jewelry that I had given my Ex-wife. I went to several jewelry stores, and even looked at a few places online. I went to Porcello Jewlers, because I had heard they were great to do business with. I went in and Mark Porcello was in the store, long story short I was impressed with him and his operation. I HIGHLY reccomend Porcello Jewelers!

I went to Porcello Jewlers, because I had heard they were great to do business with. I went in and Mark Porcello was in the store, long story short I was impressed with him and his operation. I HIGHLY reccomend Porcello Jewelers!

Will never shop here... They advertise that they buy jewelry, when I went in to see what they would offer me for an antique ring, the guy basically told me it was worth nothing but would trade it for credit. When I told him of a certain high end ring that I wanted, he proceded to show me really crappy stuff. Then he went off to continue whatever he was doing before. What a horrible place to buy jewelry. They sound like used car dealers......

I could not disagree more with Tony. This is the best place to sell Jewelry in the state. I had a lot of jewelry from an ex-boyfriend that I wanted to get rid of, and this place was awesome. I had gone to other places, but I was able to get the most bang for my buck here.

DO NOT SELL HERE!!! These people are con artists!! I took a large group of 14k and 10k scrap jewelry to them, there offer was horrible. I had taken it to another place that offered me nearly double what they did. If you are selling your any gold or silver here, you are getting ripped off!!! You should never sell anything here!!! Especially precious metals, coins, or anything else that obviously a Jewelry store should not be buying.

I cannot say enough good things about Porcello Jewelers. First of all I love the fact that it is family owned. Mark the owner was at the store when we were there and he was an absolute delight. We not only were able to get rid of some old jewelry, but there was a necklace there, that was exactly what I was looking for.
Great place!

My experience at Porcello's was also very professional, and informative. I brought in a old pocket watch, a ring, and some gold bullion that had been in the family for a few years to have evaluated and was offered a very fair, and lucrative price especially in comparison to other places I had gone to. Mark Porcello himself was at the store, and was very warm and friendly. Highly recommend Porcello's

I had the absolute pleasure to meet Mark Porcello at a jewelery event. There was another company there and they offered me literally a third of what the people at Porcello Jewelers offered me. I was treated with respect, and am very happy with my experience.

I went to Porcello's 3 Day Buying Event in December with gold coins, a Rolex watch and diamond rings. What a surprise! They weren't buying, but ridiculing my jewelry collection and offering pennies on the dollar. They were ungracious, rude and embarrassed me. I see again they are advertising Buying Event. Do not bother to attend-they do not honor their ads, let alone a person's assets. They aren't buying, but instead laughing at us for making the effort!

I was very satisfied with my experience at Porcello Jewelers. I had some old broken chains and jewelry that i no longer had any use for. While browsing the store i found a lovely diamond pendant that i had to have. I was able to trade my old jewelry for something i now wear everyday! Everyone was very kind and helpful.

Today I went to Porcello Jewelers and I had a wonderful experience! Will was extremely informative and answered all 100 questions that I had. The quality of the stones were not the best that I have seen but you get what you pay for and their prices were very fair. I would purchase a diamond from them (or Will). They were one of the better stores that I have been to. The quest for a good diamond is NOT EASY!!

I took my engagement ring in with a third party appraisal of about $7,000 in hand. After hearing a long drawn out explanation of the economy and used diamonds being compared to used cars, I was offered $600. After trying New York Diamond Exchange, which allowed me to enter my ring specs online, I was offered more than twice that amount for just the center diamond. I would highly recommend taking your jewelry to a more respectful business!

I went into Porcello Jewelers and had a Great Experience. I sold some of my jewelry to a man named Will. He was very informative and that made me very comfortable. I asked him lots of questions because I've never sold jewelry to a company before, and he answered all of my questions.
Thank you for the Great experience!

Sincerely, Bobbie Lynn

We went in to see what we could get for some rings and were basically laughed at. I had this stuff appraised by a reputable jeweler who does not purchase used and was offered less then 5% by Will. He then continued to look down his nose at us and talk about the recession. Giving us, 'poor me' stories about paying for college and whatnot. If I could give less then 1 star I would.
