The Irvine Gold Mine was founded in 1979 at its current storefront location. Built on the principle of simultaneously providing strong customer service and reasonable prices, the company grew early on. Its partner store, Anaheim Hills Jewelry & Coin, was founded in 1991. Both stores have maintained focus on placing customer satisfaction first and place a great emphasis on serving existing business as well as new business and referrals. It is satisfying to have sold a young couple their engagement ring and now be helping their kids select a holiday gift for their parents!

Whether you’re in the market for diamonds, engagement rings, fine jewelry and custom design, rare coins and bullions, we’ve got everything you need. We’re a family business with a great reputation as a neighborhood jeweler in Irvine, Anaheim Hills and Orange County.  In Anaheim Hills, locals can’t think jewelry without also thinking about David Rime, our custom design specialist, who also happens to be Catholic Orange County Man of the Year! We are also one of the few businesses in the county that have a license to buy jewelry or offer collateral loans on jewelry, coins and watches in times of need. We also love serving our community by working with charities, schools, and organizations to hold auctions to raise money.

Fine Jewelry and Custom Design

Anaheim Hills Jewelry & Coin and Irvine Gold Mine are Orange County’s premier jewelry stores. At a store where, as one customer put it, “everyone knows your name,” our main priority is to provide our customers with high quality jewelry at reasonable prices. We buy and sell jewelry, allowing us to sell our jewelry and diamonds at wholesale prices. Both stores sell a wide variety of fine jewelry, including traditional engagement rings, colored gemstone jewelry, diamond pendants and earrings, fine watches and custom designed pieces in platinum and gold. We have some of the top craftsman in the industry and we design and manufacture new pieces, as well as re-style and expertly repair old ones with jewelers who works on site.

If you have a specific vision in mind, you can work with one of our custom designers, David, Alex, Victor, Joe, or Cameron. They are all capable of making your vision a reality. Whether you would like to start from scratch on a design or update a piece you currently own, they are up to the job. So, if you have any old jewelry laying around that you no longer wear, give us a chance to look at them and help you come up with a design that you love, free of charge!

We strive to provide our customers with the highest quality at the most competitive prices possible. We carry a large inventory on hand of both loose diamonds and gemstones as well as finished pieces. Our cost basis on diamonds is the lowest in the industry. We aggressively buy diamonds and jewelry throughout the year from manufacturer’s closeouts, overruns, and inventory liquidations. Whether you are looking for a single diamond solitaire, diamond stud earrings, a tennis bracelet, or a custom piece to be made up, no company of any size can sell quality pieces to you for less!

Another advantage of having been in the business for so long is that we have established important sources and contacts throughout the world. Are you looking for the best value on a Tanzanite? An invisible set diamond band? A great deal on a previously owned Rolex? A gold coin money clip? Diamond Studs? A stunning emerald ring? We have them all and much, much more.

Rare Coins & Bullion

Within the rare coin industry, we have achieved a high degree of success and national recognition by having assembled a strong team of numismatic experts. The Chief Numismatist on site is John Saltonstall, GG. John is well established in the field and the community. He is highly regarded for his expansive knowledge of both jewelry and coins. John, who works at the Irvine Gold Mine, has developed a following in the community as a result of his fair pricing. If you plan to shop around, visit us last! You won’t regret it!

One great advantage that our customers have is that our markup on rare coins is usually in the 10% to 15% range. This is in contrast to the common markup of 25% to 40% found at many large companies in the industry. Our price markup on bullion is often only 1% to 3% above our wholesale cost which again gives our customers the benefits of both price competitiveness and expertise.

Deal in confidence with one of California’s industry leaders since 1979.
