"I had an excellent experience selling my gold to Oscar. I didn't know what to expect and was a little worried about the whole process since I had heard horror stories about people sending their gold to gold buyers who did not give them a fair deal. Oscar gave me a very fair deal and from what I can tell from calling around and comparison shopping beforehand he pays the highest price around! I called several places and got bids for as low as 25% of the actual value of the gold — and that was from a well known jeweler. Oscar's location is perfect — right in downtown Portland and discreetly located in a very nice, secure office in an easy to find building. So you are one on one with him with no one waiting in line behind you or looking over your shoulder to see what you brought in — or what you are leaving with. He tested my gold and then weighed it right in front of me. It turned out I had more gold weight-wise than I thought and was very happy with what he paid me. He is very friendly and straight forward and a great person to do business with. I highly recommend him."

Quality Excellent Appeal Excellent Service Excellent
Oscar provided prompt and fair service. He is easy to work with and we would recommend him to friends and family looking to sell gold. Thanks for the pleasant experience.
My experience dealing with Mr.Morante was very satisfactory. He was professional and courteous and took his time examining the metals and explaining to me how he derived his valuation of them. I left his office confident that I had received a very fair price. In the future I will always deal with him when selling jewelry or coins, and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone doing the same.
I researched well before I helped my friend sell her first round of jewelry from her husband's estate. I watched the TV8 show on Cashing in your gold and learned what I needed to know about finding the RIGHT professional to help me turn gold into cash. After much research I found Oscar on the web, and felt compelled to visit his business after reading ALL his positive reviews. Thank you GP for letting me know where to go!
Oscar was very clear and up front about the market, about the value of each level of gold quality and tested each and every piece individually and always gave me the benefit of the doubt if the quality was lesser. I came away very satisfied with my interaction, very happy with the results and felt a lot more informed about gold and the value of jewelry vs. coins. I kept the coins due to the information that Oscar gave me.
His honesty and integrity is obviously the basis of his success. I am one who will return due to my feeling of being treated with respect and the right to a fair business transaction.
Thank you Oscar for an experience that was informative and rewarding on many levels.
Good luck in all your endeavors,

Oscar came highly recommended from another reputable source and I was very pleased with my transaction. He was straightforward, and took the time to explain how metals are evaluated and purchased. I will not hesitate in recommending him to anyone whether you are selling in volume or one item. I will return again.
August 30th, 2012
I called and spoke to Oscar about the jewelry I was considering selling. I liked the fact that he spent time teaching me about gold weights and their worth so I made an appointment to go see him.
When I gave Oscar my item in person, he weighed and tested it and made me a fair offer. It wasn't an expensive piece but the offer was much more than I paid for it.
I would certainly recommend Oscar to anyone interested in selling metals or jewelry. At least give him a call to ask your questions. Well worth your time.

I am happy to say that I was very pleased with your assistance in looking over my jewelry and explaining the differences in the items and that I have already passed your name on to other friends. You took time with me and did not make me feel rushed and your explanation of how the gold buying experience is processed was very helpful. L. Thomas

Thanks again Gerry and Stan.

I have sold gold and silver to Oscar on three occasions, and each experience was extremely positive for many reasons. Oscar is attentive, friendly, professional and highly knowledgeable. He explains the entire selling process to you in a manner that is easy to understand. Every interaction I have had with him has made it clear to me that Oscar values his customers and truly wants them to get the most money for their metal. Oscar evaluates each piece of metal you bring in with the utmost of care and attention. He has numerous tools and techniques to test for authenticity and maximize value. On one occasion, he even gave me some tools so that I could pry a small piece of 18k gold off a larger silver pendant. This extra step put even more money in my pocket! Other buyers might have noted and then ignored this 18k piece and just bought the pendant using the much lower price of silver.
Selling old jewelry and precious metals can be a sensitive affair. You want to work with someone who has your best interests at heart and wants to get you the best deal. I always feel like I'm in great hands with Oscar. He is the only person I will ever sell my metal to!
Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. Here are my comments about doing business with you.
"I�ve had a bunch of jewelry sitting around for years and the recent radio ads about how much money I could get from selling got my attention. Each ad claimed to be better than the others, highest price, most trustworthy, best ranked. I was leaning towards Liberty and LaRog. When I GOOGLED to see what others said I found negative comments about LaRog but many positive comments about Liberty and another company, Portland Gold Buyers. I took my �stuff� to the Liberty office and they were extremely nice and not intimidating. They weighed and tested everything in front of me and gave me a copy of the estimate with no pressure to make a commitment. It took no more than 30 minutes. Then I went to see Oscar at Portland Gold Buyers. He spent about an hour examining, testing, weighing and educating me about the buying process and determining the purity of my gold and silver. In the end his quote was nearly double what Liberty offered. I would not HESITATE do business with him in the future or to REFER him to others."
From Judy's Book
"Working with Oscar was a very smooth process. He was very patient and took the time to explain the process to me. I felt he was fair and honest and I would have no problem doing business with him again."
I was lookin' for Portland's most reputable gold buyer, with the highest payout and best customer reviews. Instantly, Google told me that Oscar at Portland Gold Buyer was the way to go. I came to Portland Gold Buyer with just a little earring. Before going in, I felt kinda weird having such a small piece of jewelry to be appraised, like I might be wasting his time, but that wasn't the case at all. With Oscar, the meeting was cool and relaxed. Like a lot of other reviewers, I had absolutely NO experience in selling precious metals. After this interaction though, I'd ABSOLUTELY recommend Portland Gold Buyer to anyone looking to sell their jewelry! Thanks Oscar!

I went to see Oscar Morante and Portland Gold Buyers after doing some Internet research through Google and on Craigslist. Word of mouth is always the best advertisement, and the reviews from others thoroughly convinced me to make an in-person visit. I wasn't about to throw my wedding ring into an envelope to some company on the other side of the country and hope for the best, but I also didn't want to go to 16 different jewelry stores or establishments with the sign out front that says, "We pay top dollar for your gold!" only to get ripped off.
I arrived at Oscar's and was treated fairly and with respect. Being a first-time seller of jewelry and anticipating a hefty markdown due to tons of assumed fees involved in converting the metal into scrap, I confess that I had that cigar-smoking, wife-beater-swearing, fast-talking car salesman-like image of a pawnbroker in my head when I walked in, but happily Oscar exhibited none of those traits…rather, he was well-dressed, polite, kind, patient and clearly knowledgeable from the start. He stood up, shook my hand and invited me to have a seat while I presented the 18k gold wedding band to him. He weighed my ring in front of me and immediately had me feel at ease. He inspected the ring, consulted the day's gold prices, did some quick calculations and offered me a price that far exceeded what I thought I would be able to get by several hundred dollars. Oscar went over the paperwork with me, explained how he came to the price he offered and within minutes was laying cash in front of me.
The process could not have been more painless…literally about 15 minutes from the time I walked in to when Oscar escorted me back to the elevator with my wallet considerably fatter. I would unhesitatingly recommend anyone looking to sell or buy gold or precious metals to call or stop by and talk to Oscar. He is conveniently located near a MAX station; there is also a Smart Park garage literally across the street.
I went into Oscar's office, a first time seller, unfamiliar with the industry. I expected to be pushed around and low-balled. Quite the contrary, my experience was very pleasant. He offered knowledge about my rings without fast-talking me into a sale that I might have been uncomfortable with. He was professional, courteous, personable and very fair in his offer. I highly recommend Oscar Morante for a simple, hassle-free experience.
Oscar Morante at Portland Gold Buyers was a pleasure to deal with. I have done enough research to know what kind of local pricing to expect for the scrap jewelry I was selling. Oscar exceeded my expectations, both with his gold pricing and how he handled the transaction. He explained each step of the testing process and made sure I had a clear understanding before moving forward with the transaction. I would highly recommend his service and will use him again when the opportunity arises.
It was my first time that I ever sold my jewelry and I am very pleased with what Oscar Morante offered me. He meticulously examined them and told me every detail about them and he is honest and knowledgeable in his field. I also learnt the first time about the art of jewelry. But most of all he gave me the highest/best offer compare to other jewelry stores in Portland area. I definitely recommend his business to other people that I know.
I called several buyers around town since this was my first time selling silver. Oscar was not only offering more money by weight than others I called, but he was able to explain the process to me. I made an appointment and came in expecting that I might not get what was promised over the phone. I brought in my sterling silver and got the price I was quoted. He was very friendly and easy to work with. He paid me in cash and gave me a detailed receipt. I will definitely use him again. – Dawn W, Portland
I have used Oscar Morante of Portland Gold Buyers twice in the last two months.
He is very meticulous in testing your pieces for gold content, shows and
explains what he is doing, and gives you a very good return on your pieces. I
would, and have, recommended him to friends and family. Thanks Oscar! Candy
I was fortunate enough to be referred to Oscar from a trusted Fine Jewelry industry professional, and he has exceeded my expectations on every single occasion. I was greatly impressed with his precious metals knowledge, honesty and integrity; qualities I look for in individuals with whom I prefer to do business with. I get fair prices in a comfortable, secure and No pressure environment. Thank you Oscar… It is a genuine pleasure doing business with you.
"Good selling experience. Oscar was professional and knowledgeable, and the buying process was straightforward. Oscar tested each piece while I was there, and his offer edged out other local gold buyers. I would recommend him to my friends."
Oscar was clear and talked me through the entire process. I felt very comfortable. I would go to Oscar again.
Oscar is very friendly and helpful in answering my questions. I shopped around before selling my gold and he gave me the best offer. Highly Recommended!
My first impression of Oscar is that he's a very straightforward and honest person. He took a lot of time to check and recheck the gold content of the ring we were selling and gave us a better price than anyone else would've given for the actual gold content. If I ever have gold to sell again, I would go back to Oscar.
Great experience doing business with Portland Gold Buyers. (2 – transactions) Oscar is courteous, knowledgeable and gave me a very fair price on both of my items.
Excellent gold buying company. Oscar was very friendly and didn't pressure me at all when I sold my old ring. He gave me a fair price and everyone left happy.
I'll definitely be hitting him up again for any more gold sales!
Oscar was very professional to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again. Thanks.
I was pleased that a business named '< b>Gold Buyers' also bought silver. Oscar is very friendly and made the process simple and easy. I sold a silver chain and he gave me a great price! It was more than I expected and I would recommend him to any of my friends.
I felt very comfortable with Oscar, and I feel I got the best price for my gold.
This is world of specialized and esoteric knowledge. Who hasn't been victimized by an unscrupulous plumber or car mechanic? Few people have the ability to estimate the value of their gold items. It demands skill, experience and specialized equipment, but perhaps most important, an unwavering commitment to inform and serve the client with the goal of achieving a fair and honest transaction. Selling my gold with Oscar of Portland Gold Buyers was a terrific experience. Within minutes of entering his austere office he put me at ease; there were no “smoke and mirrors” as he described every step as he analyzed my items for gold content. Forget about the high overhead jewelry stores where you'd do well to get 35 cents on a dollar; it's worth the … knowledge. Who hasn't been victimized by an unscrupulous plumber or car mechanic?

I suspect that most of his clients are either repeat business or personal referrals. You'll leave with cash in your pocket and the peace of mind knowing that you got a fair deal. Show full review
I brought in a gold necklace and a gold wedding band that weighed a total of about 1 ounce, and a fistful of silver US coins. Oscar was professional and performed a material test on the gold items in my presence, explaining the process. I was offered a price on all of it that I was comfortable with and accepted. I received cash on the spot. Oscar is very personable. I'm telling my friends about him since he seems trustworthy.
I had a pleasant experience working with Oscar at Portland Gold Buyers. He is very knowledgeable in the gold buying process. I completely recommend him as someone you can trust. He carefully showed his process of determining the grade of gold, and weighs it right there for you. I never realized how much my precious scrap metals were worth! They had been sitting at the bottom of my jewelry box for years, and I just made over $900! He paid me very well, and I will be going back to him again very soon!

I sold some gold to Oscar last month. It was an awesome experience. After stressing about getting ripped off and taking the gold to several different purchasers, Oscar set my mind at ease. I knew that I was working with a fair and honest professional. He even directed me to a diamond remover and cleaner service that was equally fair and honest. Thank you Oscar!
Lauren – Oct 10, 2011
Oscar was an extremely nice guy. Very fair prices on some silver coins I had. Even walked me to the elevator afterwards. Truly a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell gold or silver.
DH – Sep 28, 2011
Oscar was very friendly and bought my wedding band for a fair price with no pressure at all. I will return to him for future gold jewelry transactions.
Sep 26, 2011
It's a good time to sell your unwanted gold and silver and if you like the idea of dealing face to face with the buyer, I would recommend you meet with Oscar. He will test and weigh your metals and offer you a very competitive price…Everybody's happy.
Sep 13, 2011
Impressive! I had a small amount of random gold and silver that wasn't being used so after reading the on-line reviews of this company, I really wanted to meet Oscar. He is a very rare and interesting person. He is knowledgeable in many areas and is able to speak competently and confidently about the precious metals industry. I believe he gave me a good price on my trinkets and I wish I had more to go back and sell to him. Sorry, Oscar, my grandmother's silver set is silver plate Meet him; I think you'll be really pleased!
Nancy – Sep 1, 2011
Oscar is fantastic! He explains all the details of the different qualities of your gold and gives a very fair price. I would highly recommend him for selling your gold and silver! Just met him today, 9/1/11, and was very pleased with our transaction.
D.R. – Aug 16, 2011
Ditto to honesty and integrity. I would highly recommend Oscar. Smooth and personable transaction on the pieces I sold; and, I was very happy with the pricing I got. He's very comfortable to talk with and no high pressure sales. I would not hesitate doing business with him again, whether I was buying or selling. Thanks Oscar, you are a tribute to your profession, and I'm pleased to acknowledge all the other positive reviews.
joflee-pianist – Jul 9, 2011
Honesty and integrity are two rare qualities these days. You will find both in abundance when working with Oscar. His vast knowledge and unparalleled skills are a tribute to his profession. Comforting to know there are still a few people you can trust!
Masako – Jun 5, 2011
Very good service and excellent price. I really recommend to go here. I can trust Oscar 120%!! Thank you.
S.K. – Apr 26, 2011
Oscar's gold prices are highly competitive and he made this an easy, transparent, and professional transaction. I was undecided about whether I wanted to sell a larger piece and Oscar provided a price for it but I felt no pressure from him whatsoever to sell it. I would sell to this company again in the future.
John – Jan 7, 2011
Oscar was great to work with. I got a great deal on the piece I was selling. This was my first time selling something, and he made it easy. Very professional, and personable. I'm definitely recommending him to anyone I know who has jewelry to sell.
Oct 12, 2010 – easy to work with, and by far the best price I recently wanted to sell a gold ring. I took it to four sellers: a large jewelry store with an advertisement for buying gold, a small jewelry store I've dealt with in the past, and two Portland gold buyers with very solid reviews, one of whom was Oscar. Oscar gave me by far the best price, which was double the lowest offer that I received. Oscar was also the only one who took the time to test the gold purity; the others relied on the stamp on the inside of the ring. It was very easy to meet with him, and he is friendly and a pleasure to work with.
Sep 29, 2010 – Honest, Fair, Made you feel comfortable I want to thank Oscar for being a real professional about my whole expericne. I have never sold any of my jewlery before. He made it seem and easy and simple. Oscar explained the entire process as he was doing it. Explaining things even when I did not understand. There was no "awkward" moment of silence. He kept talking and it kept me interested in finding out more. He is very professional but holds that calm sense of himself. Oscar gave me a better price than another gold buyer I went to the previous day, who was actually going to rip me off $250. Oscar really did give me the best deal out there. I would recommend Oscar to anyone, that is either first time sellers or have done it before. OSCAR IS GREAT!! I have gone to him time and time again and he still stands out on top. I have no hesitation in recommeding him to anyone.
Aug 19, 2010 – Honest, Fair, Pays the highest price… I want to thank Oscar for his professionalism and his integrity. I knew the specs of my wedding ring. I had just recently separated from my wife and needed to sell the ring for financial reasons. After calling many places to get the best price, I called Oscar and he gave me a far better price than his competitors in town. Not only that, he was very professional. He has a convenient downtown office. He works with his customers on appointment. I appreciated that because it created privacy in what was an emotional situation for me He seemed to know what this sale meant to me and was more than fair and understanding. I give Oscar and his business my highest possible recommendation!
Aug 13, 2010 – Honest And Professional Oscar was very honest, professional, and easy to do business with. He gave us a good price for our gold and we would definitely do business with him again. Have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Aug 5, 2010 – By Yumi Oscar was very helpful and friendly not to mention fast. I checked around and he gave me the best deal for my gold. Thank you!
Jul 27, 2010 – Best Price. Fast and Easy We went to see Oscar based on some of these reviews. We'd gone to two other places first (including a well-known jeweler that says they give you more with their online coupon) and Oscar paid us MUCH more than the others offered (about 80% more than the jeweler). So we were really happy. Highly recommended if you want some quick cash. Oscar is nice, fair and efficient.
Jul 21, 2010 – Good Service. Nice Guy. Quick $$$ I met Oscar for the first time, and the meeting was smooth and painless. If you want to get rid of old trinkets… GO SEE OSCAR. He fairly pays by the gram. Best payout in Portland!
Jul 17, 2010 – Helpful, Educational, and Fair Price I took my 13 year old granddaughter with me to research the value of the gold I had to sell. Oscar was very sweet as he thoroughly explained each detail of detecting the quality of the gold, the price, the weight, etc. We were thrilled at the value of our pieces and very happy with the prices that he offered us. Oscar and the gold provided a very pleasant as well as educational "adventure" for my grand daughter and myself. When I have more gold to sell in the future, I will certainly call on Oscar. I trust him.
Jul 15, 2010 – Didn’t feel rushed to make decision Oscar was patient and understanding; while I contemplated whether to sell a special air loom piece. We actually came up with a solution that gave me some summer spending money and let me keep part of my air loom piece. In addition, the meeting was very educational as far as testing and evaluating the market value of my gold.
Jul 14, 2010 – Thorough service convenient location Oscar is friendly and very thorough in his work. I got a great price for my gold and silver. He also let me know of a nice gentleman to look at my stones for free!
Jun 23, 2010 – So good that I went back twice For some months I had thought about selling the gold items that I no longer wore. I made many calls and the prices I was quoted were far below what Oscar offered me. I was impressed by his honesty and the way he explained exactly what the procedure was. He even walked me to my car. This was a solid and fair transaction. Thank you Oscar
Jun 21, 2010 – Best Price for Gold Oscar made selling my gold very easy. He is very professional, and explains the process as he goes through your gold. I checked out quite a few gold buyers and Oscar pays the most for your gold. Oscar is the only one I will go to from now on!
Jun 16, 2010 – Great service!!!! Oscar is a very professional reliable and accomodating.
Jun 3, 2010 – Great Place to Sell Gold Jewelry Oscar made the process of selling my gold jewelry quick and efficient. I had already determined the exact amount of gold I had to sell before meeting with him. He quoted what he was paying over the phone. When I arrived for my appointment, he analyzed the quality of the gold and determined the weight. I left with amount of cash I expected, which was 40% more than other gold buyers in Portland were quoting. I felt that my transaction with Oscar was fair and honest.
May 31, 2010 – Great Experience Oscar made the process much easier than anticipated. He confirmed several times that I truly was committed to selling my gold. He had his prices posted and explained his testing process on some gold items where their karat weight was difficult to read. I felt safe and appreciated his honesty.
May 24, 2010 – Portland Gold Buyer – Great Experience I absolutely recommend Oscar and "Portland Gold Buyer." I have never sold precious metal before. I brought my family's odd pieces for an estimate and soon felt very confident selling them to "Portland Gold Buyer." I found: a trustworthy person and transaction, a safe environment, and a responsive and educational experience. After my experience, I have no trepidation. This business gets my business. Thanks!
Mar 15, 2010 – Easy way to get cash Great people to work with Very helpful when I took my gold in to sell it for cash. I felt safe, they were professional and it was quick and easy! Highly recommend them for Cash for Gold
