PMR Has No Back Rooms

We ensure our customers have a private, secure, and professional experience. We guarantee confidentiality for every transaction. Unlike our competitors, our professionally trained staff invites you into our private buying offices and you are never separated from your valuables. We analyze your items right in front of you with our state-of-the-art equipment. To protect your valuables, we use an x-ray machine to limit contact and ensure that your items are not scratched or damaged.

Private, Confidential, and Safe

Most stores have their customers wait at the counter and analyze their valuables in the presence of other customers. This can be dangerous, other people can see the entire transaction; the valuables that were brought in and how much money the customer has received during the transaction. Our process provides you with a private, confidential and safe experience when you sell your items to PMR.

Get The Most Value

Rest assured, Precious Metals Refinery will always offer you the most for your valuables. We pay up to 40% more than our competitors. If a competitor gives you a better written offer, we will be happy to beat it. Our years of experience and expertise provide us with the ability to give you the best price. Our staff is comprised of Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certified Gemologists, coin and numismatic specialists, and watch experts.

Private, Secure, Professional

Let our buyers help walk you through the selling process in a private environment. The process is confidential and when you leave our store, you’ll have money in hand. Our stores are designed with security in mind and your valuables will never leave your sight during our evaluation.

Eliminate the Middleman

When you sell directly to PMR, you eliminate the middleman. Our staff is composed of a broad range of experts that know how to appraise your valuables and give you the most money. One less person to deal with means there is one less expense. This means you will get more money in your pocket.

Our History

Robert Chorost & David Schiesel founded Precious Metals Refinery in Tucson, Arizona in 2011. Their goal was to offer clients a direct place to sell without a middleman in order for our clients to receive the most money possible for their items.

Our Inspiration

The inspiration of the company was family member Richard Baron, former Executive Director of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers and Director of the National Association of Watch Dealers. Baron used this knowledge, and the experience he acquired while owning and managing retail jewelry stores, to create a separate division of PMR in Newport Beach, CA. He succeeded in his vision of making PMR a premier diamond, jewelry, gold, silver, platinum, watch, and coin-buying company.

After many years of being Managing Director, Robert Chorost and Julia Chorost acquired David Schiesel’s half of the business with the desire to open more locations and to continue offering more services to the public.
