Love Love Love pearls. Pearls are the perfect necklace for the winter. Pearls prefer
to be kept dry and cool with little oils touching them. It preserves their color and luster. A long operal length
strand to go over that chunky sweater or a choker and princess length layered under your blazer. Dont forget pearl stud
earrings to match. We have lots of pearls for sale vintage and modern.

Little charms are a great way to buy some gold on a budget. It should really get your creative
juices going. The trick is to come in with an open mind because you never know what you will find.
Charms can be strung on your favorite necklace long or short. Another popular trend is slipping a little charm
on a piece of leather and making a DIY bracelet. Some people collect charms throughout the years and create a charm
bracelet that tells a story.
Come in and pick out one for yourself or a gift.
They are all guaranteed gold and come with a cute little gift pouch or box.

Tales from the Pawnshop
Yesterday a nice older gentleman came in looking for an 8mm Sony camcorder. He bought
one and while showing him the specifics he mentioned that he came into Crown Pawnbrokers in 1954. Come to find out he had
just moved into the area that year and needed a loan on his nice suite. He was loaned $10 and picked it up the day before
his wedding and how thankful he was for the quick loan.

I thanked him so much for his amazing story, that will stay
with us for a long time!

A little of everything
Tue, October 9, 2012 | link
Sometimes it is a bit overwelming for people when they stepinto the store for the first time. There is just so
much to look at that you cant possibly see it all in just one trip. Most people's first responce upon entry is, "whoa
look at all the musical instruments!" Some people simply silently create their wish list for their next trip in.
We tend to have a bit of everhting or everyone. Shown above is a few Tiffany silver necklaces, white gold and
diamond cocktail ring, silver bracelet, irridecent pocket knife and jazzy egg shaker.

Silver AG 925
Fri, June 22, 2012 | link
Silver is an amazing precious metal that has been used for thousands of years throughout our history. This metal
is a commodity that has an ever changing price worldwide. It is stronger than gold in its pure form and about 1/50th
its cost. Its no wonder the growing popularity of its use in the current economy. Silver is also gifted
to the lucky couples that make it to their 25th anniversary. Silver is also used in Musical Instruments, coinage
or bullion, jewelry, silverware, elecronics and more.
The cool part is we carry a little of everything on
this list. Our most popular silver product if our silver jewelry from rings, pins, chains, bracelets and charms.
We also carry silver coins and some other silver collectibles and on occasion we have silver instruments for sale such as
a flute or trumpet.
Our every changing inventor makes it for a fun visit for anyone in and around MIDCITY DC.
Stop in to see if we have what you are looking for.

Is this watch unisex?
Wed, October 20, 2010 | link
Watches have changed so much over the years. Ladies watch faces were so
small in the 1930's that you need to carry a magnifying glass around in your pocket to read the time. Every year watch
faces get bigger and bigger. The faces for some ladies watches are in some cases the same size as mens. Many watch
makes are now not specifying their watches they are simply calling them unisex.
Many vintage mens watches
with leather bands are really easy to wear if you are a female. Their faces are nice and chunky and can really make
a statement. Even some of the newer watches are mimiking more vintage looks. These watches and similar ones are
selling to both men and women and would make a great gift for either him or her. All watches are guarenteed authentic and in perfect working order.

band $595, Baume & Mercier Classima XL stainless steel quartz with black leather band $895, Movado 14k gold with brown
leather band quartz $395, Omega Automatic Day/Date 23j with Black leather
