Why Choose Us?

The Canadian Asset Buyers & Fine Jewellers distinction 

There are many companies out there offering to give cash for your valuable frozen assets. So it is important to do some research and ensure you are dealing with a reputable, experienced, and no-pressure company before you decide who to sell to. Here is what makes us unique:

Experience – We have qualified, registered professionals appraising your jewellery to determine its true value. At Canadian Asset Buyers & Fine Jewellers we pride ourselves on the over 30 years of practical experience, in the jewelry industry and as an Accredited Appraiser, of our owner and operator Michael Stern (a GIA Graduate Gemologist and Registered Master Valuer). Michael and his expert team can appraise your jewellery or precious metals, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with the highest quality of service in the business.

High Returns – We offer the highest on-the-spot cash for your jewellery and precious metals. Unlike many buyers, who only deal with refineries and will automatically send your valuable jewelry to be melted down, we take the time to evaluate each item individually and then shop around to find the best possible placement for your unwanted jewellery. We have long-standing relationships with auction houses, high-end jewellers, tradespeople and estate buyers all across North and South America and in Europe. These connections allow us to guarantee our clients the highest return.

We have faces – We are not a faceless company that will treat you like a number or hide behind a company name. We are owner operated and staffed with real people who care for our community, take pride in our work and reputation, and love what we do! And our personal touch ensures we take the time to carefully value your items, in person, and give you the best payout possible – not a low ball estimate without seeing your items.

Bricks and Mortar Location – Unlike many of the other cash-for-gold businesses Canadian Asset Buyers & Fine Jewellers has a physical location conveniently situated in the heart of downtown Toronto’s famous jewelry district. Many other buyers only share a PO Box and if you wanted to visit the facility it is impossible to do so. How do you really know who you are doing business with? And that you’re getting the real value for your items? While we do offer home visits, if required, our clients also have the option of making an appointment in our downtown office. This allows them to do business in an environment of their choosing.

Confidentiality Assured – Confidentiality is assured when you choose to sell with Canadian Asset Buyers & Fine Jewellers. We are discreet in all our dealings and will keep your name and address completely confidential. Your privacy is important to us and we never share or sell any of our customer data to other organizations.

We Give Back – Canadian Asset Buyers is a proud supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Services for Seniors

seniors-photoWhen President Michael Stern was caring for his aging parents he recognized that a lot of valuable assets were collecting dust instead of being used to benefit his parents’ lives. But he knew his parents would not be comfortable taking their jewellery and coin collection around to buyers who could be dubious or might have no credentials. He saw an opportunity to help seniors sell their unwanted valuables in the comfort of their own home.

Canadian Asset Buyers & Fine Jewellers is pleased to offer several services for seniors. Let your valuable assets benefit your life – use the proceeds to help with living expenses, pay for a trip, do a home renovation, or purchase something for your own comfort or pleasure. Our experts will travel to your home, evaluate your valuables, and offer you the chance to sell them in a pressure free environment. Call now for your no obligation appointment (fees may apply).

For Seniors Residences and Retirement Communities:  Group consultations are available to all senior residences and retirement communities. Consultations are always handled in private regardless of the size of the group. Group events make it easier to access our experts in a pressure free and comfortable environment. We also make a contribution to your residence’s social fund (equivalent to 5% of the total purchase price from the group event). Contact us for more information or to schedule a buying event at your location.
