  • GEM Pawnbrokers has blown me away in exceeding expectations as a loyal customer. Never in all my years of business have i ever had the pleasure of actually having a business contact me personally to inform me that i have been mistakenly overcharged and immediately take action to rectify the situation. I have no personal affiliation with Gems i am just a regular customer and have been for years, i wish more businesses had your ethics then maybe corporate greed would not exist...#onehappyclient
