Loans on Jewelry

A pawn shop loan is a convenient option for obtaining a short-term loan quickly, using an item as collateral.

Instead of going through the process of applying for a personal loan from a bank or relying on a high-interest credit card, acquiring a collateral loan from Maxferd offers a faster and more cost-effective alternative. It can also be less awkward than borrowing from friends or family.

When you require immediate cash, our Encino pawn shop is the perfect solution.

We provide confidential and efficient cash loans for jewelry, including broken pieces, as well as high-end timepieces.

Our straightforward and efficient process for obtaining a loan consists of five simple steps:

Step 1: Visit our location and have a brief assessment of your jewelry conducted right at the counter.

Step 2: Within minutes, receive a verbal quote for your item.

Step 3: Present an acceptable form of identification, such as a driver’s license, identification card, or passport, to complete the required verification process.

Step 4: Upon approval, sign the loan agreement, which will be printed and provided to you.

Step 5: As you receive your payment in cash, check, or wire transfer, your item will be securely stored.

No credit check is required during this process.
No credit agency reporting for unpaid loans.

Note: Please note that besides jewelry, we also accept a variety of other items as collateral for loans, allowing you to obtain the necessary cash without having to pawn your jewelry.

We are pleased to receive the following items as collateral:

We accept a wide range of valuable items as collateral, including precious metals, coins, diamonds, gemstones, DSLR cameras, Apple products, computers, laptops, musical instruments, luxury handbags, select collectibles, and artwork.

Layaway Program

If you’re captivated by a truly remarkable and incomparable item in our store, it can evoke a sensational feeling. However, we understand that purchasing it immediately may not be feasible within your budget.

We recognize the concern that another customer might acquire the item before you have the chance, and it may not become available again.

To address this, Maxferd offers a layaway program that provides you with additional time to secure the desired item at a fixed price.

-No need for income or credit verification.

-No additional charges for layaway.

-No interest will be applied.

Participating in our layaway program is simple. Just make a 20% down payment and present a valid identification confirming your age of at least 18 years. You’ll then have up to five months to pay off the remaining balance through manageable monthly installments. Rest assured that during this period, the item will be exclusively reserved for you and securely stored until the final payment is made.

Tip: Take advantage of our layaway program to pleasantly surprise your loved ones with a unique and unexpected gift on special occasions like Valentine’s Day, birthdays, or Christmas. And don’t forget to treat yourself to something special because you absolutely deserve it!
