Richard is established in 1956 and kicks off as a traditional precious metals enterprise. Its range obviously appeals to people right away. As such, Richard soon becomes a familiar brand name in the region.
The business keeps expanding, while experience and competence grow along with it. Since the early years, Richard offers all kinds of services related to the purchase and sale of gold and silver, also in the shape of coins, bars and jewels.
Although many things change, the enterprise stays true to one tradition: if you sell or buy gold and silver, we'll apply an honest top price. Nothing more to say.
In 1987, the business gets fresh inspiration, with the arrival of the second generation. The domestic gold foundry is fairly unique. All of this culminates in 1992, with an exquisite shop at the current address.
Precious Metals Richard sells, buys or exchanges antique, second-hand and new golden jewels, gold and silver coins, gold and silver bars, silver objects, platinum, diamond, vintage and second-hand prestige watches. On a regular basis, collector's items are acquired. New branded watches complete the picture.
The shop's overall renovation in 2016 is a mere continuation of all these trends and implies a full commitment to discretion and safety. Even today Richard combines experience, craftsmanship and investment advice with a large choice of products and an equally large range of services. Learn more about them on the website, or simply stop by.
