You deserve more than just a pawn shop. You deserve Maxferd.

In 1884, the Maxferd San Francisco opened its doors. Since then, we’ve become the oldest continually operated pawn shop in San Francisco and throughout the continental United States. We’ve earned a reputation as ‘the Tiffany’s of pawn shops’ because we offer high-quality products and exceptional customer service. In order to meet demand, we’ve expanded the Maxferd brand to 5 convenient locations throughout the state of California.

Our San Francisco Pawn Shop Services

Whether you’re searching for an elegant engagement ring or leveraging your existing jewelry as collateral for a short-term loan — our dedicated team members will be happy to assist you.

Sell Your Gold & Valuables

Did you know that selling old pieces of jewelry can provide you with instant cash? Our expert appraisers will assess the value of the gold and platinum in each piece and then provide a no-obligation purchase offer based on existing market value. It couldn’t be easier to take advantage of this opportunity.

Jewelry Loans

At Maxferd, we provide fast, confidential, cash loans which can be secured by a range of collateral options: including jewelry, watches and collectables. Unlike bank loans, which require credit checks and tedious paperwork, collateral loans can be issued quickly. We always provide a fair and honest loan offer based on the estimated resale value of your items. That’s how we earned our place as the best pawn shop in San Francisco!

Layaway Program

Need a unique piece for a special occasion? With our layaway program, you can find one-of-a-kind treasures from luxury brands. Layaway periods can extend for up to five months, so you’ll have the option to pay as you go.
