Yes, you can find deals and best buys and bargains on jewelry and diamonds, but you have to know where to look and where to shop.  We're going to try to help you here.  Here is where we will tell you about quality jewelers in Los Angeles County as well as jewelers in Los Angeles who sell to the public only through their websites.  And for more best deals on jewelry look at our pages called "Jewelry / Downtown Los Angeles" and "Pawn Shop Deals / Loans" and keep in mind that pawn shops can offer deals on resale jewelry and watches.  As you watch our reports below, keep in mind that prices and inventory can change.


Update October 7, 2015  Pars Jewelry on Ventura Boulevard in Encino, California is family owned and discounts custom, high-end and designer jewelry by as much as 80% below retail prices because of its low overhead. There is plenty of convenient, free parking. For the holidays, Pars Jewelry is offering a layaway plan so you can start your Christmas and Hannukah shopping now. They offer a large selection of diamond jewelry in 18-karat white gold as well as fine jewelry with high quality diamonds, rubies, emeralds and all precious stones. There is also fashion jewelry with semi-precious and simulated stones. Pars Jewelry also buys gold so you can trade-in old jewelry for a new piece. They can create custom jewelry -- just show them what you want or even bring in a photo. There is a large selection of sterling silver jewelry for lower priced holiday gifts. Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

Update April 2, 2014  Gold Time Jewelry in Woodland Hills is able to discount fine jewelry including 18kt gold with diamonds jewelry, as well as gold and silver jewelry, because it has low overhead in a strip mall on Ventura Boulevard.  It's an unassuming store with great bargains and current designs and styles, and there is plenty of free parking which is something you will not find in downtown Los Angeles.  Gold Time is independently owned, with low rent, and Gold Time will buy your unwanted gold and diamonds and jewelry to help you lower the cost of what you buy there.  And Gold Time gets big discounts so that you can expect to pay a small margin above wholesale prices -- and by that we mean real wholesale prices because these days everyone claims to have wholesale prices.

Gold Time is conveniently located right off the 101 Freeway just west of Winnetka Avenue and that's right off the Winnetka exit on Ventura Boulevard.  You will find high-end diamond rings and gleaming sterling silver party rings and exquisite gold jewelry -- and remember everything is deeply discounted.  Diamond wedding bands that are priced at $3,000 elsewhere are less than $1,000 at Gold Time.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

There is a pre-Mother's Day 2014 offer: watches that are normally 30% off are now 40% off.  And if you make a jewelry purchase of $100 or more you will recieve as a gift a 14-karat gold #1 Mom charm that has a retail value of $50.  And if you mention "Best Buys" or "Alan Mendelson" you can get a free watch battery installed.  Valley Discount Jewelers also buys gold.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.
