Jeweler Carl Marcus doesn't mind being known as the pawnbroker of Beverly Hills. Because, he acknowledges, he does make no-interest loans to close customers, holding as elegant collateral their Mercedeses, their LeRoy Neiman originals, even the gold Audemars Piguet watches he sold them in flusher times.
