Our History

Robert Chorost & David Schiesel founded Precious Metals Refinery L.L.C. in Tucson Arizona in 2011. Our goal was to offer clients a direct place to sell without a middleman in order for our clients to receive the most money possible for their items. The inspiration of the company was family member Richard Baron, former Executive Director of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers and Director of the National Association of Watch Dealers. Baron used this knowledge, as well as the experience acquired while owning and managing multiple retail jewelry stores, to help him create a separate division of PMR in Newport Beach, CA. He succeeded in his vision of making PMR a premier diamond, jewelry, gold, silver, platinum, watch, and coin-buying company. Although he never possessed any equity interest in the company, he was still a consulting resource for many years. After many years of being Managing Director Robert Chorost and Julia Chorost acquired David Schiesel’s half of the business with the desire to open more locations and to continue offering more services to the public.  Richard E. Baron sadly passed away on December 25th 2018 after battling cancer and dialysis treatment.  Richard’s legacy will be remembered for standardizing the jewelry appraisal industry.

Great experience here with friendly customer service! I would definitely come back in the future. I sold a few sterling silver and gold items in my closet and this place was great. I didn’t have to wait and they helped me out and answered questions. Thanks!

I was pleasantly surprised when I first entered PMR for the first time this year.  I went in on a whim to see what the store was all about and partially looking for an engagement ring. I was introduced to Robert immediately and we had a honest and in-depth discussion about the diamond industry and what to expect from other jewelers. He showed me multiple options and possibilities that were within my price range and then told me I shop around at other stores. So I did, and it turned out that everything he said was true, and the prices were higher everywhere else as well. After going to 5 different jewelers and searching online I came back to Robert and PMR, told him exactly what I wanted and 3 weeks later I had it! The ring is beautiful and now I just have to find out a way to propose to my girlfriend. I would recommend PMR to anyone, they are honest and give you honest feedback which is too often hard to find.
