Even though pawn shops have been around for hundreds of years, many people are still hesitant about visiting their local pawn shop. Pawn shops are wonderful places to find interesting, unique items with cool stories behind them. Your local pawn shop is one of the best places to find all sorts of treasures – all at amazing prices.

So, if you haven’t visited any of our three pawn shops in Charleston, SC lately, let us tell you a bit more about what you can experience there, and why you should pawn, buy or sell your items with us.

We’re right in your neighborhood

With three locations across the Lowcountry, we’re practically neighbors! Gene’s Jewelry Pawn started over 30 years ago as a small store on Rivers Ave. Since then, we’ve been fortunate to replace our original building and expand to add two locations to serve even more local customers.

With our friendly, professional staff, we are committed to serving you with the short-term loans and pawn services you need, including jewelry repair and evaluation, notary services and fast and easy pawn loans up to $15,000. We offer reasonable prices on all kinds of items, including firearms, high-end electronics, gold, diamonds, and jewelry – we even buy cars, motorcycles and homes!

We offer flexibility and convenience

Let’s face it – we all accumulate unwanted items of some sort – from furniture to clothing to household goods and more. And regardless of how we got it, most of us have great intentions of getting rid of that extra stuff somehow – by either selling or donating it, giving it away, or even throwing it out. And then reality hits. We work full-time, have errands to run, kids or family activities to attend, and on and on and on. Who’s got the time and energy to post and sell things online or plan for a yard sale?  

That’s where Gene’s can come to your rescue! Bring your items to us at one of our three convenient locations in North Charleston, Moncks Corner or Goose Creek, SC, and we’ll take care of the rest. We provide free consultations and private appointments to fit your schedule. We also offer hassle-free appraisals, and we specialize in jewelry cleaning and repair. Our expertly trained technicians use the most advanced jewelry cleaning equipment and techniques to make even your oldest pieces of jewelry shine like new and restore your cherished pieces to mint condition.

If you’re unable to visit one of our shops in person, you can also request a free estimate online! Just fill out our convenient request form and tell us a bit about your item. We’ll contact you promptly with a quote and let you know what we can offer for your item. There is absolutely no pressure or obligation.

We provide friendly, professional expertise

If you want to sell something, especially a high value item like heirloom jewelry or a big ticket item, it can be hard to figure out what it’s really worth. So how do you know you’re asking – or getting – the best price for your item?

Our experts are happy to help. Our professional, caring staff are highly trained in evaluating and appraising items like jewelry, firearms and electronics, and we’re dedicated to making sure you get the best prices possible for your items. We’ve been buying precious metals for nearly 30 years, and we regularly shop our competitors to make sure our prices are fair. Visit one of our stores today or contact us online for your free appraisal. If you are not 100% satisfied with our estimate, we encourage you to keep your item and shop around – no questions asked.

We offer fast, easy solutions

Life happens, and sometimes, you just need a helping hand. Whatever your situation, we’re here to help, without hassle. We make it simple and easy for you to buy, sell or pawn items and get the cash you need, in just minutes. And because we are local and a trusted member of the community, we’ll take care of you like family. No need to fill out complicated loan application paperwork or wait days, weeks or months to get the cash you need.

At Gene’s Jewelry Pawn Shop locations, you can get money for your quality used items without losing them forever. Instead of selling your items outright, you can ask for a loan. Because the pawn industry is considered one of the oldest forms of banking, pawn shop loans can be an easy, no-hassle way to get cash quickly. Most transactions can be done in just minutes, you get your cash on the spot, and, unlike traditional loans, pawn loans don’t require credit or background checks.

Just bring in your item and a driver’s license or photo ID. We’ll collect your contact information and record some details about your item before we provide you with a pawn ticket. You walk away with cash in hand, while we securely store your items. You have 30 days to pay off your loan with interest, and after you pay the loan, you get your item back. 

We also offer partial payment terms and loan extensions if you’re unable to pay the full amount in 30 days. Want to know more? Just stop in and chat with one of our friendly staff members, or contact us online today!
