Buying, Selling & Sourcing

We are more than happy to buy and sell on your behalf and if you are having trouble finding that special something whether it be a particular cut of gemstone perhaps a watch, maybe some silverware, or simply a set of cufflinks. No matter the item we pride ourselves and our network of trusted associates to be able to help source, buy and even sell your wonderful treasures.

Buying

We buy a wide range of jewellery, silverware, watches and coins over the counter. It doesn’t matter the condition, broken or still in original box, your pre-loved pieces can hold a surprising amount of value.

 

 

Scrap

We work closely with our Hatton Garden based trade bullion dealers who update their metal prices every day of the week. We buy Gold, silver, platinum and palladium scrap over the counter and offer a free appraisal where we go through the items with you, identify the different alloys and separate them, weigh the pieces in front of you and present you with the days prices per gram.

Precious metal prices are always changing and we monitor them closely so we can offer the best price for your unwanted broken or damaged precious metal pieces. For today’s prices and a free, no-obligation appraisal come and see us in-store.

 

 

Coloured Diamonds

Re-sale

If you are looking to sell your unwanted pieces, unlike most high street jewellery shops we don’t just buy over the counter for scrap purposes.

Our years working with antique and second hand jewellery gives us the knowledge and expertise to restore your pre-loved treasures for re-sale. We also create completely new bespoke pieces using stones and settings from damaged jewellery which we buy over the counter so if your pieces have seen better days, don’t worry we will be able to find it a new home.

 

 

Selling

 

Auction

We love working with second-hand and antique jewellery and silverware but we can’t buy all of it! Sometimes the items aren’t quite right for us but are worth more than their scrap or stone prices.

We have worked closely with local auction house Bellmans for years, providing our clients with a safe and secure way to sell their items and achieve the best prices possible.

We offer a free, no-obligation auction house appraisal service with no additional costs for selling your items through Bellmans.

 

Commission Sale

We offer a commission sale service for our clients looking to achieve the best possible price. Just come and see us and we can value your jewellery for sale in our window.

If you decide to sell through us we charge £25 to clean and book your items in for sale(additional fees may be charged if repair or restoration is required prior to selling) plus 25% + VAT at the point of sale.

Although this option can sometimes take the longest, the value we can achieve for you will be more than selling through an auction or buying over the counter. For a free no-obligation appraisal come in and see us in-store.

Sourcing

We stock a wide range of special and unique treasures and try to always have something in stock that’s just right for everyone, however we can’t stock everything!

But don’t worry, our large and trusted network of suppliers, auction houses and antique dealers can source almost any imaginable piece including jewellery with specific size and cut of any stone, watches for men and women by Rolex, Omega and Cartier and rare pieces of Georgian silverware by particular makers.

For the truly unique option we also offer fully bespoke services so we will always be able to source you that one-off piece to treasure forever.
