5-18-20  We have adpoped a new design for our www.belleaircoins.com  website as well as a new domain name  www.goldsilversales.com

New Website


Our previous web site of 6 years shown below was fine and had proven success bringing in over 800,000 visitors per year and receiving top rankings on every major keyword search pertaining to our industry in Google, but I felt as though we needed to try something new, so we'll see what happens.    My brother Greg who had personally did all the content for the previous site inclusive of photography, graphic design, layout, SEO, outside tech companies relations and who also handled all the cross promotions and web site tie ins with our TV Commercials, Social Media and Jewelry Flyers was a dissentor on my decision especialy since $100,000 was spent on it over 6 years, but I am willing to take a gamble and see if the grass is greener on a new web design.   We will know in a few months from now if my decision was brilliant or a bust.

• Jewelry showroom is closed to the public for shopping in person.   You can call in an order over the phone and pick up in store or have is shipped to you.

• Gifts showroom is closed to the public for physically shopping in person.   You  can call in an order and we can ship or it can be picked up in store.

• All of our on-line ordering on www.silverqueen.com and on www.belleaircoins.com are still fully functional and orders being shipped daily.   This applies to our Ebay, Etsy and Rubylane stores also.

5-5-14  We retired our website  design from year 2013.    We were not happy with our website and my brother Greg Arbutine and our IT director David Petrin decided to take over the job.   The old one shown below just didn't have enough glitz and curb appeal nor did it really showcase our jewelry department.    We are all now very happy with the new current design that Greg came up with and are hoping that the search engines will also appreciate it and rank us up high.
