The company was established in 1973 by William an Patricia O'Neill. It continues today doing business as a collateral loan broker and retail jeweler, family owned and operated for over 42 years.

With great knowledge of the pawn broking industry and understanding of their customers' needs, they quickly established a successful business as Suffolk County's leading collateral loan broker.
