MORE ABOUT US

In 1988 Ron and Mechelle Yates opened their retail store, California Coin & Jewelry in Modesto, CA. The store bought and sold rare coins, estate jewelry and diamonds from private individuals, estates and others. The vast majority of the pre-owned (we call it pre-loved) jewelry that was purchased from the public was resold to jewelry wholesalers and other local jewelers. After several years, the focus of the business was changed to service the needs of our growing customer base. Instead of selling our estate jewelry primarily to other jewelry stores we now offered the savings to our own customers first. The name was changed to Yates & Co Jewelers, Inc.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

“I had an awesome experience at Yates & Co. Jewelers. My husband and I took them a handful of broken jewelry to sell and hoped to get at least $500. What a surprise we got! I was so thrilled when we walked out with a check for $2120. It far exceeded anything I had dreamed."

- Georiga Chapman, Modesto realtor

“Several times during the past couple months my wife and I sold some of our gold jewelry. Every time we shopped around to see who would pay us the most, Yates & Co Jewelers offer us the best price."

- David Estrada, Modesto, former jeweler

“After getting an offer of $420 from the Roadshow Buyers that were set up at the Holiday Inn, I went to get a quote from Yates. Yates paid me $580! I got $160 more. Thanks for paying me $160 extra!"

- John Freitas, Turlock
