Hi I’m the owner of Gold Rush Coins & Jewelry, thanks for taking the time to look at our website. In this section, Meet the Team, we’ll introduce my sons Anthony and Phillip, our Certified Gemologist, Mark, and our webmaster, Ron. We run a family business. By us working as a family, we are able to keep our overhead down, saving money and allowing us to pay our customers more $$$$.

I was introduced to this Industry by my father in 2005 where I bought into his existing business – Modesto Gold Jewelry and Coins – which he still owns and operates to this day. I ventured out on my own in 2009 and opened up our first store in Fair Oaks. Shortly after, I was very happy to bring my sons in and have them work with me, assuring we will provide all our customers with quality, honest, fast, friendly, confidential service.

We are located in the Sacramento Valley where the Gold Rush all began in the mid 1800s hence the name Gold Rush Coins & Jewelry. Many prospectors made their way to this area from all over the world seeking fortune and a claim of California Gold. Both of our stores are conveniently located, 5376 Sunrise Blvd, Fair Oaks, CA 95628 in Sacramento County, and 4060 Douglas Blvd #108, Granite Bay, CA 95746, in Placer County. Both locations are only about 25 minutes away from the California State Capitol.

Please feel free to visit our online store, our Ebay store, or stop in and let us earn your respect and business.

Hi I’m Anthony – I’m in charge of our online store as well as our extensive line on our Ebay store. We try hard each and every day to give accurate descriptions and quality pictures of our items online.

We also ship and package our sold items very securely to make sure you get it just as you viewed it online and we ship fast and prompt. But do not forget we also offer full refunds to anyone that is not completely satisfied for two weeks from the date of purchase.

If you see something in either of our online stores please feel free to contact me via email where I will get back to you in a speedy manner or call me direct on the phone and I will gladly help the best I can.

Thanks again and I hope to see you in person or see that you have checked out and purchased and utilized our online services.

There is a tremendous difference between a graduate gemologist and a Certified Gemologist. Be sure your Gem is evaluated by a Certified Gemologist to ensure the grading is accurate and you are given the highest possible payout.

Our Certified Gemologist, Mark Tanzi, is a proud member of the Jewelers Board of Trade, the Gemological institute of America, and the American Gem Society. He is one of the nation’s leading “Certified” Gemologists.

Mark travels several times per year to major mining and cutting centers world-wide. If you have a request for a stone that cannot be found in the US or is too expensive; make a request for us to seek and find it on our next stone buying excursion. We seek only the finest colors and best cutting available.

In addition to buying and selling, Mark is also a world renowned designer. Mark employs only the finest craftsmanship and materials. He is committed to the highest quality at the best prices in all his collections.
