Let Bellman's Help You With Your Concerns
We respect your time and make the process simple. If you call ahead, we can insure we can accommodate your schedule and have an appropriate staff member available to serve you. Typically, we will examine your items, present an offer and exchange payment during one appointment.
What we would pay you for the item(s) that will be melted down is based on the price of gold, platinum or silver at the moment you visit us to sell them. The price is also based on the purity of the metal and its weight. We have certified scales that we use to weigh the gold, silver or platinum to make sure we have the most accurate weight.
The truth is, the door is not locked to keep people from coming in, it is locked to keep a would be thief from grabbing jewelry and running out an open door. Nearly 80% of all jewelry thefts are the result of grab and runs.
Our security system has resulted in a safe environment for our employees, but also for our customers as well.
We ask that you give us 5-7 business days to get the appraisal done. We charge $75.00 per hour and typically 2-3 items can be done within an hour. (There is a $75.00 minimum).
If you would rather wait while your appraisal is being done, we would be happy to accommodate you. We ask that you schedule an appointment. The fee is $125.00 per hour and the same amount of items can be done within the hour. You leave with the appraisal that day.
The insurance adjuster will contact you to arrange replacement or repair either with Bellman Jewelers or you can ask that Bellman’s does the work, it’s your choice.
You bring the item into Bellman’s. We do the repair or replacement, usually in one week or less.
Copper: Can turn skin green.
Silver: Can turn skin black because silver tarnishes.
Nickel: Can turn skin green. If you are allergic to nickel, you won’t just have stained skin. Jewelry that contains the metal will make your skin itchy and red where it comes in contact with your body.
Gold: Rarely will stain skin, but the other alloys mixed with gold to create its color may. For example, white gold may be gold mixed with nickel or silver to create the white appearance. Many people do have a reaction to nickel, that’s why Bellman’s only uses gold mixed with silver. It creates a heavier gold and eliminates a problem with a reaction with nickel.
There are ways to preventing your skin from staining your skin. Trying keeping your jewelry clean and tarnish free can help. Also, try to keep your sky dry when wearing jewelry or only wearing the pieces for a short amount of time.
If you have allergies to metals or jewelry tends to react and stain your skin, try 18k gold (more pure metal), platinum, stainless steel or titanium when buying your next jewelry item.
