About Reliable Gold
A Family Tradition
For over 80 years and four generations, our family has upheld the tradition of offering lovely antique and estate jewelry to an appreciative clientele.
Beginning our business back in 1934 as Reliable Gold Buyers in downtown Providence, we parlayed that expertise to become Reliable Gold Ltd., having decided that some of the pieces were far too beautiful to melt down. In 1958, we moved to the historic East Side of Providence in Wayland Square near Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), first at 181 Wayland Avenue and more recently relocating to the heart of Wayland Square at 9 Wayland Square.
We have since added new, contemporary designs to our collection of estate and antique jewelry, broadening not only our horizons, but also our base of savvy customers. We strive to have something unique and wonderful for a wide range of styles and budgets, but we are always driven by the same high standards of taste, quality and value. Personalized service and knowledgeable sales staff are also prominent hallmarks of the Reliable Gold experience.
Our Distinctive Merchandise
Reliable Gold's truly eclectic collection of antique and modern styles is hand-selected to comport with our acclaimed sensibilities. Our inventory is ever-changing but certain to hit the mark, whether you fancy diamonds, pearls, rubies, emeralds or even harder to find gemstones like jade, opals, alexandrite and moonstones.
Reliable Gold prides itself on its reputation as purveyors of stunning, one-of-a-kind estate jewelry. Whether the pieces are antique or newer, our estate or pre-owned jewelry rarely fails to impress, and, at any given time, may include anything from a Victorian necklace, to a designer piece from the likes of Lalaounis, Cartier, Tiffany and Yurman, to an Edwardian bracelet, to a vintage ring, to handmade earrings.
Engagement Rings, Wedding Bands & Bridal Jewelry
We love our brides and grooms, searching for their diamond engagement rings, wedding bands and other wedding jewelry with that wow factor. You can depend on us to provide that day-of glamour that you will treasure forever, or the ring and band that you will proudly wear every day. For 80 years and counting, nothing makes us happier than the bride's huge smile when she's found her perfect match.
Our gorgeous, wearable silver jewelry is versatile as it is flattering. As with our gold and gemstone jewelry, we carry a wide range of silver styles - handcrafted, bold, classic, vintage, to name but a few.
Men's Jewelry & Gifts
Reliable Gold is an equal opportunity provider of elegant pieces, and we carry many terrific items for gentlemen, such as cufflinks, men's rings and wedding bands, chains and bracelets. We also have stylish gift items such as flasks, money clips, key rings, desk accessories and old-fashioned pocket watches.
Gift-giving Reliable Gold style does not take a backseat to our jewelry. We have so many pleasing items, including our ever-popular sterling silver picture frames, jewelry boxes, antique sterling hollowware and baby gifts.
Gold & Jewelry Buyers
We well appreciate that selling your jewelry can be an emotionally difficult process as well as an overwhelming and disconcerting prospect for someone without jewelry industry experience. Rest assured that Reliable Gold will handle the process with the utmost compassion and honesty. We will evaluate your items and, if possible, offer to buy them outright, consign them for a period or buy them for scrap. While we cannot promise to buy everything presented to us, we absolutely promise to earn your trust by being fair and scrupulous.
Custom Designs & Redesigning Existing Items
Reliable Gold helps its customers to design spectacular jewelry creations. Assisted by CAD, or computer-assisted design, we can design pieces to your own unique specifications from scratch as well as repurpose your old, lesser-used jewelry to create your ideal piece.
We promptly and carefully handle jewelry repairs, silver hollowware repairs and engraving through our trusted jewelers and craftsmen.
Reliable Gold puts its considerable experience to work in handling your appraisal needs, whether for insurance or estate purposes, jewelry or silver goods.
We can arrange for shipping and shipping insurance for any item purchased. Items are typically shipped via express priority mail, registered mail or UPS.
Clean & Check
We will professionally clean your Reliable Gold-purchased jewelry and check the prongs free of charge. We recommend that you have this done at least twice per year.
Consider giving a Reliable Gold gift certificate to celebrate any special occasion. It is the gift that can only succeed.
When you have a particular item in mind that you have not been able to find elsewhere, our staff at Reliable Gold regularly works with an extensive network of vendors and dealers to help locate just what you are looking for.
