After being informed by People’s Jewellers that a minor repair to my necklace would cost over $100 (!!) I came into Beck’s store on the enthusiastic advice from a friend. The necklace repair cost a mere $20 and the accompanying conversation was worth a lot, too. Thank you for your kind service, and see you again soon!

I had the absolute pleasure of dealing w Clinton Beck this past December discussing a few different things before I purchased a diamond ring from him with great confidence in its quality and value. I sincerely appreciated his time and knowledge with his ability to answer all of my questions with clarity and patience especially since I wasn’t sure exactly what I was asking. Comparing price and quality, it seemed he was second to none and I would highly recommend to anyone that if in the market for diamonds, silver or any precious metals, Clinton be someone you heed advice.
The entire experience was uniquely positive and I look forward to our next transaction especially once the price of silver rebounds. I will not hesitate to look to him with any questions or advice and I consider Clinton to be ‘my guy’ and first contact in this regard.

It was a pleasure doing business with [Beck Antiques & Jewellery]. I finally took my silver scraps in to sell. Not only did I feel I set a fair price for it but I walked out with the cash. Certainly less of a hassle than mailing it out somewhere — paying what would have been a considerable amount just for shipping.
Very professional & friendly service. I highly recommend doing business with [Beck Antiques & Jewellery]

Clinton never ceases to amaze me at the range and depth of his knowledge on all things old and dusty. He’s my first source on many subjects, especially military, and my first recommendation for buyers and sellers. Say “Hi” to Luigi from me!

My fiance and I stopped in at Beck when we were on the hunt for a simple but unique ring, preferably from the 1930s-1950s, as I dress 1940s everyday and wanted something that fit into my style, as well as something that was affordable.
Our first stop was Beck, which is not only an antiques store but also offers repairing services, as well as an on-staff gemologist. It was our first visit, and as soon as we walked in we got a good vibe. The store was well organized, we were greeted right away by Clinton and were left to browse while he helped another customer.
Once we were ready to look at rings, we noticed that their engagement rings are sorted and labeled in the display case by price, meaning that you won’t put on a ring and fall in love and realize that it’s out of your budget. Clinton also mentioned that all diamonds are sold wholesale – meaning you pay what other jewellers in Edmonton pay – and that if we had a stone that we liked but no band, one could be made for us. He also gave us a brief history of engagement ring styles during the 30s & 40s. There were no hard sales and no pressure: just straight up education.
Well I put on one ring and fell in love. I’d describe it to you, but a photo is worth a thousand words. Clinton told us to take it outside and look at it in the sun, and I actually blinded Ian with it. We agreed that this was “The One”, and while we (ok, Ian) set up an account and paid, my ring went through the polisher. The creme-de-la-creme? Clinton threw in a beautiful 1920s ring box because he “knew we’d appreciate it.” Um, yeah! Oh, and did I mention that they will make a matching band for me when the time comes? How awesome is that?
We also went ahead a booked a sit-down appointment with Carla, who will appraise our ring, next week. Less than an hour later we were out the door and on our way, and we extremely happy with our experience.
