A Souvenir to Truly Remember

Posted on October 25th, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

It’s tradition to bring home a souvenir from vacations, whether it be a magnet, a key chain, or…a 3.85-carat diamond?

A 14-year-old girl from Oklahoma was digging with her family at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Oklahoma when she saw something interesting. Upon closer observation, she realized it was a canary diamond about the size of a jellybean.

More than 75,000 diamonds have been found at the park since 1906, making its name well-deserved. One was the largest diamond ever found in the United States – a whopping 40.23-carat gem. Visitors at the park are allowed to keep what they find.

The girl says depending on how much the diamond is worth she will either make it into a ring, or use it to pay for college. Which begs the question, what would you do if you had found it?

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!"

Can't say enough about this place.

This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
