Steins has a huge selection of preowned jewelry at great prices. Steins can also custom make a piece for you too! Whatever your jewelry needs are, Steins is here for you. Stop in and compare. You will be glad you did. Milwaukee’s leading jewelry store since 1933.

About Pawn Shops

The pawn shop is one of the oldest businesses around. They were around in Ancient Greece and the Chinese have had pawn brokers for at least 3,000 years. Queen Isabella of Spain pawned her jewels so that Christopher Columbus could sail in search of a new route to the west Indies. In turn, he stumbled upon America. Throughout history, people from all walks of life have used pawn shops from Kings and the rich to your average Joe. You can buy and sell things at a pawn shop and use your valuables as collateral for a loan.
